Ball Engineer II Volcano
Pioneering the revolutionary mumetal watch case for supreme anti-magnetic protection
True to its pioneering reputation, 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, particularly admired by modern-day adventurers. These natural wonders are a source of inspiration for the technicians responsible for research and development at BALLWatch Company. The links between volcanoes and magnetic fields inevitably led our researchers to create enhanced anti-magnetic protection for our timepieces."
