The Ball Fireman NECC is the end result of a partnership with The Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, an operational command that ensures the management, staffing, training and equipping their forces, and whose missions are focused on achieving objectives in coalition with the Navy, reinforcing their lines on combat missions whatever the environment.
Thus developing an instrument that is part of the “gear” of these Special Forces would suggest a challenge for any watchmaking House, but not for BALL Watch, which is used to provide maximum anti-shock capacity (up to 5.000Gs), along with antimagnetic protection up to 4800 A/m. Also, BALL Watch’s light capacity is indisputable; using Tririum gas micro tubes that light up the indicators for the next 25 years.
Inside the Fireman NECC's 42mm stainless steel case beats a self-winding motor BALL RR1103, which will give life to the hours, minutes, seconds and dater, while remain water resistant to 300 meters thanks to a screwed crown.
Finally, the watch is secured to the wrist by a stainless steel bracelet with folding clasp, and there are three colors of dial to choose: blue, black or white.
