BALL Watch Co. Engineer Master II SKINDIVER II

By TLex This is the all-new Engineer Master II Skindiver II, unveiled at Baselworld, this week. It pays homage to the 1962 vintage BALL Skindiver watch as well as the US Coast Guard reserve.

Being a modern dive watch its 43mm Stainless steel case has a larger diameter than the vintage Skindiver I and has been fitted with a number of contemporary divers features that include:

a divers bezel with a polished side in Clous d Paris and a ceramic luminous inlay, an automatic Helium release valve and 500m of water- resistance.

Despite its slim profile at just 14mm thick, the new Skindiver II can withstand up to 5000Gs of shock and is anti-magnetic to 4800A/m.

It comes in a special presentation box-set with steel bracelet and a black rubber divers strap.

  1. Questions:

    1. The previous Skindiver has a tritium rating of T (or T100), whereas this new Skindiver II has a tritium rating of T25. However, by looking at both watches, they seem to have the same amount of tritium tubes, both flats (the hour marker) and rounds (the hands). How is it so? Does the new Skindiver II has a lesser tritium brightness compared to the previous Skindiver?

    2. About the bezel, is the new Skindiver II bezel integrated with LumiNova as well like the previous Skindiver?

    3. What will the price be for this new Skindiver II?
