BALL Watch brings instant low-light visibility to a new level with the introduction of the all-new Engineer Hydrocarbon Aero GMT, with its groundbreaking micro gas light rotating bezel.
A watch for flight crew and air traffic professionals, it incorporates, for the first time in any timepiece, H3micro gas tubes in the chassis of the bezel. This bezel carries a 24-hour graduation, and marks out a third time-zone in addition to its standard and second time-zone GMT functions. In the darkness of an aircraft cockpit or air traffic control, this bezel comes alive with a luminosity 100 times more effective than conventional luminous paint found in other aviation watches, yet is self-powered for up to 25 years.
