Ball Watches You Must Own, All Come in Blue
Ball Watch Co. is a popular watch brand name that is usually associated with American railroad history. The company was originally located in Cleveland, Ohio, United States, but recently moved to La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland. Ball keeps its promise to continuously produce accurate wristwatches based on railroad standards.
When we talk about Ball watches for men, it is always related to masculinity and strong power. Here I highlight two series timepieces in different lines and unique characters. The duo below come in a charming blue, let’s check out the details!
Engineer Master II Diver Worldtime Blue - Ltd Ed 1000pcs Ref. DG2232A-SC-BE
As a main purpose, the Engineer Master II line was born for diving and sports stuff. The Ball Watch Company once again reconstructed to fulfill everyone’s expectations in the latest edition of Engineer Master II Diver Worldtime Blue - Ltd Ed 1000pcs Ref. DG2232A-SC-BE.
This was produced to show their gratitude for dual-time readings and underwater exploration. Categorized for professional divers and a world timer, this Swiss made timepiece has rich features with high durability. Only 1000 pieces available on Gnomon Store, make sure you get one of your own.
The new model remains with a stainless steel case in a 42 mm diameter and 15 mm thickness. A 48 mm lug to lugs seems not too wide with a total weight only 183 grams. It has a slimmer design than the previous one, reconciling your wrist into a snugger wearing experience.
The finishing is entirely nice in satin-brushed although with no polishing in the case. Move to the side, there is a screwed in-crown that has a definitely good size about 7 x 6 mm, allowing you to set up the time, day, and date easily. The “RR” signature lies very charming on it.
While other watch brands show me an outer bezel, Ball offers me an inner bezel for countdown diving featuring 24 popular cities, the most unique aspect from this series of Ball watches for men. Since this bezel uses a unidirectional rotation, it is safe for the time elapsed. The numerals have a mid font size that is done in white, hiding micro gas tubes to make the timepiece highly visible in deep water or total darkness.
Let’s dive deep into the dial where it has caught my attention a lot. This one of the best Ball watches for men is combining complexity in technology and ultra modern looks for its design. It has been redesigned in a sunburst blue by adding several layers.
Two Arabic numerals and other markers are made from 36 micro gas tubes. Speaking about the watch hands, they come in a pencil shape with polished stainless steel finished, while an attractive red color appears in the second hand.
You have a rectangular date window that is located at 3.00 o’clock position, while the day window is at the 6.00 o’clock position. Those right positions make everyone easy to read. The writing you can find on the dial are Ball Official RR Standard since 1891, chronometer, and 300m-1000ft. The Swiss made is printed smaller at the bottom. At the end, this bezel and dial create an amazing busy look that does not sacrifice legibility.
Well, come to the next question, how good is the movement? Ball uses an automatic caliber RR1501-C that has been authorized with the chronometer standard criteria, certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). This movement highly provides all your needs for diving.
Inside, Ball also puts antimagnetic up to 4800A/m. Finally I can say that this is one of the best Ball watches for men you must have. Go get your Engineer Master II Diver Worldtime Blue Ref. DG2232A-SC-BE here.

Ball Watch proudly announced this series in the Fireman line-up that takes a 40 mm stainless steel with only 11.3 mm height. You won’t regret its case finishing, a well combination between satin-brushed and an extra slight polished on the top of the lugs.
Ball Watch is well-known for its high accuracy. Therefore, this series of Ball watches for men is powered by the Ball caliber RR1103, a Swiss made automatic movement which is based on ETA 2824-2 or Sellita SW200-1. It has a 38-hour power reserve and beats at 28,800 per hour. To prevent the movement from any damage, it is protected with an anti-shock system that was produced by Ball.
Jumps to the dial, the Arabic numerals lie proportionally at the 4, 8, and 12 o’clock. This font size and positioning matches the sporty theme that this watch exhibits. Not to forget to mention that the blue dial has a smooth circular texture when you zoom it out.
Categorized as a simple watch, the writings only appear for “Ball Official RR since 1891 and “automatic 100m - 330 ft”. Moreover, the two hands look like thick pencils that contain micro gas tubes. Ball also provides a small calendar indicator that is situated at the 3.00 o’clock position. Glad to know that all of them are protected with flat anti reflective sapphire crystal.
The self-illuminating tritium gas tubes are still used in this series to keep a high legibility with a height of 1.5 mm. When the lights fade, the watch constantly glows in a combination of green and yellow color.
A bracelet material has been one key to bring convenience.
