Unveiling the new Engineer II Moon Phase Blue. The Engineer M Marvelight measures in at 41mm in diameter with a height of 14mm. Further, it features a screwed-in crown, commonly found on most Ball’s watches, allowing it to have a 100m water resistant. Once the time and date adjustments are done, screwing back the crown will enable one to bring it out for some splash around water.
Moving on to the dial, the new Engineer II Moon Phase Blue takes some tweaks from the earlier version of the Trainmaster Moonphase. There are a total of 28 micro gas tubes on the hour, minute, second hands and dial for night reading capability.
Couple this with a sword style hour and minute hands, along with their signature seconds hand with Ball’s “RR” symbol as counterweight on the other end. Topping things off for the dial, the Engineer M Marvelight has a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating underneath.

The Ball Trainmaster is powered by the Ball RR1801 automatic movement, which is based on an ETA movement. The movement adds a moon phase complication for an added touch of elegance. Ball puts an emphasis on accuracy under adverse conditions. So while they are from the dress collection they are made to be tough withstanding. The movement is well protected with Ball's own patented Amortiser anti-shock system, that consists of a protective and anti-magnetic ring around the mechanical movement that absorbs the energy created by side impacts and shocks.
The new Engineer II Moon Phase Blue paired with their elegant solid links bracelet with a nice mixture of polished and satin finished throughout. The bracelet features a double-sided locking clasp system which makes the bracelet more streamlined when being worn.
