Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Original

The Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Original is the Ultimate Explorer’s Watch. With exceptional resistance, it benefits from a number of exclusive Ball Watch Company patented innovations. A certified chronometer, it has been tested by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) for its accuracy. To gain COSC certification, it must be accurate to -4/+6 seconds per day. Find out more about COSC here.

Case, crown, water resistance, bracelet

Firstly, the Engineer Hydrocarbon has a practical 40mm stainless steel case. A black uni-directional rotating bezel measures elapsed time. Secondly, a black dial complements the bezel. To ensure unparalleled night visibility, 30 micro gas tubes on the hands, dial and bezel glow brightly in the dark. Amazingly, these will remain bright for up to 25 years without recharging. Thirdly, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal protects the dial. A day/date indicator at 3 o’clock is also a useful feature. Additionally, the heavy-duty crown is equipped with Ball’s exclusive crown protection system. Moreover, the Engineer Hydrocarbon is anti-magnetic, shock resistant and water resistant to 20 bars (200m). Finally, the tapered stainless steel bracelet is fitted with Ball’s patented folding buckle and extension system.
