BALL Watch Company presents the Engineer II Volcano, a new model composed of materials never before used in the world of watchmaking.
For many years BALL Watch has focused its research and development strategy on improving the reliability of its watch movements. The accuracy of a mechanical watch is easily affected by the magnetic fields to which we are exposed almost constantly in everyday life. The briefest of contacts with an artificial magnet may be enough to magnetize an automatic movement and cause the complete stoppage of the mechanism.
According to accepted standards in watchmaking, an automatic watch is deemed "anti-magnetic" when its operation can resist a magnetic field of at least 4,800 A/m without its accuracy being subsequently affected by more than 30 seconds per day.
Volcanoes are a perfect environment for research and exploration, and links between volcanoes and magnetic fields inevitably led the researchers of BALL Watch Company to create enhanced anti-magnetic protection for its timepieces. After perfecting a retractable anti-magnetic diaphragm made of mumetal, BALL Watch devoted its efforts to developing this protection further by incorporating this material in the components of the watch case.
