Two centuries. Over 200 years. A short span in the whole of human history but long enough to nurture the rich and vibrant essence of Singapore. Introducing the Ball Watch Roadmaster Raffles Ref. DM3030B-S9-BK,- a limited edition to commemorate the bicentennial anniversary of Sir Stamford Raffles’ (Singapore’s founder) arrival in the Lion City in 1819.

The transparent case back, decorated with the iconic pose of Sir Stamford Raffles, completes the uniquely localized design.

Powering the watch, the BALL’s caliber RR1102-C movement, which has a 42-hour power reserve. Coupled with its anti-magnetic (to 4,800A/m) and water-resistant (up to 200m) properties, the Roadmaster Raffles is a timepiece capable of enduring some of the harshest conditions in man’s pursuit of exploration.
“We are extremely proud of what we have produced to celebrate this momentous occasion,” mentioned by Daniel Alioth, Chief Operating Officer of Ball Watch Company.
“As a brand focused on exploration and growth, we were inspired by the Singapore’s rise from its third-world status into one of the leading economies in the region and wanted to create a timepiece befitting of this achievement.”
