Ball Engineer Master II Skindiver II
A new vintage diver's watch that pays tribute to BALL's watchmaking heritage
In 2012, BALL Watch Company took up the bold challenge of reviving a resonant part of its watchmaking heritage in the form of the Engineer Master II Skindiver. Following the unanimous success of this model as soon as it was launched, BALL Watch Company now once again meets the expectations of all lovers of vintage diver's watches with the new Engineer Master II Skindiver II.
Just like its predecessor, the Engineer Master II Skindiver II takes its inspiration directly from the first BALL Skindiver" timepiece conceived in 1962 in response to the increasing popularity of underwater diving in the United States, the original homeland of BALL watches. The launch of this watch followed the creation of the "Underwater Society of America" in 1959. This public organization is responsible for promotional work and providing training in relation to diving, as well as organizing competitions. A practice dating back several thousand years, diving developed as a sport and method for exploring the seabed after the Second World War. It gradually split into two codes: scuba diving and skin diving or free diving.
For many years now, BALL Watch has played a pioneering role in the design of diver's watches, especially through its extraordinary partnership with the multiple world champion constant weight freediver Guillaume Néry. This outstanding human and technical exploit has been a source of inspiration for an entire range of diver's watches at the cutting edge of modern watchmaking technology. Once again, BALL Watch is proud to introduce a new model into the ranks of the Engineer Master II collection, paying tribute both to the history of the watch itself and to the heritage of underwater exploration."
