Fireman NightBreaker Blue - Bracelet Ref. NM2188C-S23-BE1

Write a review

Ball Watch Co. is one of the handful of names that are associated with the rich American watchmaking history, being highly respected for producing fine and accurate watches. With the advent of American railroads in the early 19th century, the development of the watch industry in America gave birth to many innovative watches associated with railroad timekeeping. Precise timekeeping was essential to railroad operations to ensure trains were coordinated. It was Webb C. Ball who first successfully established a system of strict standards, otherwise known as the ‘Official RR Standard’ in 1981, forbidding variations more than 30 seconds among watches carried by all railroad workers. The brand name ‘Ball’ stems from Mr. Webb C. Ball who founded the Ball Watch Company that later became the standard for American railroad timekeeping.


Ball Fireman NightBreaker Blue - Bracelet Ref. NM2188C-S23-BE1
Till this day, Ball Watch Co. has stayed committed to produce accurate timepieces while incorporating advanced technologies and innovations that shape their watches to the needs of the 21st century. Ball Watch Co. is now based in La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, manufacturing watches with immaculate craftsmanship the Swiss is best known for. Despite Ball watches not being American-made today, they continue to uphold the founding spirit of the brand - industrial functionality that is never compromised.

Ball Watch Co. introduced another outstanding addition to their Fireman series that showcases attractive specifications and a refreshing modern look. The Ball Fireman NightBreaker Blue - Bracelet Ref. NM2188C-S23-BE1 rocks a 40mm stainless steel case with a thickness of 11.3mm. Ball has spared no expense in the case finishing with a combination of well-defined satin brushing on the top of the lugs and mirror-like polishing on the bezel as well as the side of the case. Moreover, the top of the lugs receive a slight polished bevelled edge for an extra refinement.
 
Details on case and intricate finishing
This mix of finishings carries down to the solid 20mm stainless steel bracelet with brushed outer links and polished inner links, a bracelet design that looks incredibly posh and elegant. The bottom of the bracelet features a butterfly push deployant clasp that clicks resoundingly in place. Due to the gentle downward curvature of the lugs, the watch contours around the wrist for a comfortable fit. The overall size and elegant design of the piece makes it fitting for almost every occasion.

A lot of things are happening on the deep blue dial of the Fireman NightBreaker Blue - Bracelet Ref. NM2188C-S23-BE1. For starters, large Arabic numerals rest at the 4,8 and 12 o’clock position, adding a touch sporty appeal. Additionally, the dial flaunts an intricate circular pattern that radiates from the centre, an attractive design that gives the watch a great deal of character and depth. Reading the time is a pleasant experience with the thick pencil hour and minute hands, together with the prominent red second hand that brings a dash of colour to the whole piece. Above all, the dial is protected by a flat piece of sapphire crystal treated with anti-reflective coating.

 
It's all in the details
Without a doubt, Ball watches are best known for the use of their signature self-illuminating tritium tubes. These tiny tubes filled with tritium gas hold their glow constantly without the need of a light source. In contrast, the conventional luminous paint shines brightly after a direct charge and slowly fades over time. The Fireman NightBreaker Blue - Bracelet Ref. NM2188C-S23-BE1 houses a combination of 15 green and yellow tritium tubes, being one of their tallest micro gas tubes ever with a height of 1.5mm. When the lights are out, feast your eyes to a magnificent display of light from the glowing tritium tubes. 



Accuracy has been one of the key emphasis for Ball watches, the Fireman NightBreaker Blue - Bracelet Ref. NM2188C-S23-BE1 is powered by the Ball Cal. RR1103 Swiss automatic movement, a movement based on the ever-reliant ETA 2824-2 movement. This movement has a beat rate of 28,800 beats per hour and a power reserve of 38 hours. The Cal. RR1103 is protected by Ball’s Amortiser® Patented Anti-Shock System, a proprietary shock system protecting the movement from external shocks that may cause damage.
 
15 tritium tubes in 2 different colors
In essence, the Fireman NightBreaker Blue - Bracelet Ref. NM2188C-S23-BE1 is a solid offering that combines the dedication for precision, fine Swiss watchmaking and an attractive contemporary design. This would be a great daily driver with its sweet size and a dial that delivers just the right amount of flair while keeping it simple. Ball Watch Co. has consistently produced watches that pack unbelievable value with premium materials and great attention to detail, this one is no exception.
