BALL Watch Engineer Master II Super Navigator - Aviation Chronometer with onboard Flight Computer

BALL Watch redefines mission-critical timepieces with the launch of the Engineer Master II Super Navigator, complete with an onboard circular slide rule flight computer.

Dubbed “the pilot’s best friend in adverse conditions”, this 46mm watch enables complex flight related computing as well as everyday mathematical calculations with a simple twist of the bezel. These functions can be realised using the special aviator-grade E6B circular slide rule, which is manipulated via the outsized bezel.

They include:
  • Essential calculations such as instant multiplication and division functions
  • Aviation time-to-arrival calculations
  • Airspeed calculations
  • Distance calculations
  • Fuel consumption calculations
  • Nautical Mile / Kilometer conversions
  • Even foreign currency conversions
The term “Aviation Chronometer” takes on a new meaning when these complex calculations are matched against the additional Chronograph timekeeping functions of the watch.
Powered by the BALL RR1408-C automatic caliber, and certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), the Engineer Master II Super Navigator not only enables mission-critical functions, but provides instant low-visibility reading from its 21 H3micro gas tubes on the watch face. From the green gas tubes on the hour indexes, the yellow tubes on the main hands, to the distinctive bright orange 12 o’clock marking, the watch becomes an indispensable  tool for the experienced aviator.
In addition, thanks to its Mumetal inner case shielding, providing an anti-magnetic resistance of 80,000 A/m, the Engineer Master II Super Navigator carries the distinction of being one of the highest anti-magnetic resistance timepieces in the history of BALL Watch. This is essential in ensuring accurate COSC-standard chronograph timekeeping in potentially high electrical/magnetic flux environments up in the air. It is also rated to withstand up to 5,000Gs of shock impact and is water resistant to 50 meters.

Complete with the distinctive BALL rubber strap and standard buckle, the Engineer Master II Super Navigator can be worn over aviation apparel, and has high functionality even in humid, tropical environments.
