Characterised by robust styling throughout, the Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon DEVGRU Ref NM3200C-P1J-BERD has been designed in collaboration with the U.S. Navy’s SEAL Team Six. With impressive durability matched by handsome styling, this piece is built to withstand even the most extreme conditions while being entirely suitable for daily wear.
The piece carries a 42mm stainless steel case, with a patented anti-shock system which ensures the safety of the movement, enabling it to retain accuracy even after a major impact. On the right, the company’s patented crown protection system adds heftiness to the profile of the watch but, despite its utilitarian character, contrasting finishes ensure that this is still a beautifully executed watch case.
Within this solid housing, a dapper blue dial sits beneath tough sapphire with supreme scratch resistance. Here, functionality is the priority, with chunky hour and minutes hands and hour markers which have been designed for legibility.
Within the dial, H3 tritium gas filled tubes, which promise to emit a piercing glow in low light environs, ensure that after-dark this piece offers its wearer incredible readability.
Elsewhere, a slender red-tipped seconds hand conforms to the vivid red ring at the outer dial, and together they add a vibrant pop of colour. Taking up position at the 3 o’clock location is a perfectly proportioned double date window.
Boasting accuracy and reliability, the Ball Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DEVGRU Ref NM3200C-P1J-BERD is powered by a Swiss-made Ball Calibre with automatic winding, which enables a power reserve 38 hours and which is sealed securely for water-resistance of up to 100m. The piece is a limited edition of 1000 pieces and comes presented on a black rubber strap.
