Ball Engineer II Green Berets
Watchmaking excellence joins forces with military elite
BALL Watch Company unveils the new Engineer II Green Berets, a combat watch combining excellence, robustness and functionality that takes its inspiration from the famous elite troops.
The green beret was the official headdress of the British Commandos of the Second World War. It is still worn by members of the Royal Marines after passing the Commando Course and men from other units attached to the Marines who have passed the All Arms Commando Course.
As a reminder of the American origins of BALL Watch Company, the Engineer II Green Berets has the United States Army Special Forces Airborne" insignia engraved on its case back. The unit's motto, the Latin phrase "De oppresso liber" ("Free from oppression"), testifies to its unshakable commitment to the noblest endeavors. The American Green Berets received the ultimate recognition in the 1960s when President John F. Kennedy said: "The green beret is a symbol of excellence, a badge of courage, a mark of distinction in the fight for freedom." From that moment onward, the green beret was permanently identified as the symbol of excellence in the United States Army. It is the same commitment to excellence that has led BALLWatch Company to develop its Engineer II Green Berets."
