Ball Roadmaster M Archangel 43mm DM3150B-S5CJ-BK Review

The Body

The Ball Roadmaster M Archangel 43mm DM3150B-S5CJ-BK features a case made from stainless steel measuring 43 mm in diameter. This case is balanced by a ceramic bezel highlighting the streamlined strength and durability that the timepiece maker is famous for. The ceramic used to make the bezel is resistant to scratch, so you need not worry about using the Ball Roadmaster M Archangel 43mm DM3150B-S5CJ-BK in rough terrain or under harsh conditions.

The bezel is also protected from ultraviolet rays as the ceramic is impervious to the rays. As a result, you get a long-lasting dial color. The watch's body also features a Super LumiNova covering, and this combines with the rays-resistant ceramic bezel to allow you to read time effectively at nighttime.

The case back makes use of a sapphire crystal covering for protection. As a result, the space for personal engraving allowed by the case back becomes more exciting and gorgeous.

The Movement

The Ball Roadmaster M Archangel 43mm DM3150B-S5CJ-BK is powered by the Ball RR7309-C caliber. This movement mechanism is an in-house technology that uses one of the best innovations in the industry. In conjunction with numerous micro gas tubes, this movement mechanism gives you one of the most functional and well-crafted timepieces in the market.

These micro gas tubes work with the hour markers, batons, the 6, 9, and 12 o’clock numerals to effect one of the first automatic luminosity for timepieces in the Ball Roadmaster M Archangel 43mm DM3150B-S5CJ-BK. These gas tubes require no charging and last for as long as 25 years.

With an 80-hour power reserve, the Ball Roadmaster M Archangel 43mm DM3150B-S5CJ-BK is a powerful and highly functional timepiece. It combines this prowess with a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour to show that Ball Watch Company still upholds the core value of efficiency and functionality.

As a token of commitment to explorers, the Ball Roadmaster M Archangel 43mm DM3150B-S5CJ-BK uses Amortiser, another in-house technology, to provide an extra layer of protection for the timepiece’s internal systems. This system encompasses the whole automatic movement mechanism and absorbs possible shocks with any force's impact. As a result, regardless of the incident, the precision of the movement mechanism will be unaffected.

Finally, the Ball Roadmaster M Archangel 43mm DM3150B-S5CJ-BK has a water resistance feature. It is resistant to water up to a depth of 200 meters.

Ball History

The Ball Roadmaster M Archangel 43mm DM3150B-S5CJ-BK is one of the legendary Ball Watch Company's timepieces. If you are familiar with the history of railroads and trains in the United States, you will understand the extent of the Ball Watch Company's importance in developing the railway system.

The Ball Watch Company came to the fore during the renaissance of the US railway system. A head-on collision involving two trains traveling in the opposite direction gave birth to the company in 1891. This accident claimed some lives and injured many more.

Upon the investigation, the stakeholders learned that the disparity in one of the train conductors' time made the train travel later than expected, causing the accident. To prevent further accidents, the Chief Time Inspector had to introduce the concept of Standard Time System for standardizing the timekeeping activities throughout the entire American railroad network. This introduction also came with time signals for engineers, conductors, trainmasters, and other professionals involved with the rail system.

This introduction seemed to calm and standardize things a bit. However, to make the most of the time signals and the new timing system, train personnel needed timepieces. The Chief Time Inspector, Mr. Webster Ball, thus went ahead to manufacture watches amounting to about 2,300 pieces. This feat birthed the Ball Watch Company and assisted the growth of the American Railway System.
