BALL Watch Co. ENGINEER Hydrocarbon SILVER FOX

By TLex Ball Watches honor one of the fast men in the air, USAF Colonel Robert Stephens AKA the Silver Fox, who on 1st May 1965 flew the experimental YF-12, at a speed of Mach 3 & 80 at 257 feet becoming the fastest and highest flying man on earth.



The Limited Edition of the Hydrocarbon Engineer features Micro gas tubes that glow up to 100x brighter than conventional luminous paint. It has a Swiss COSC-Certified movement, anti-magnetic resistance of up to 12,000 A/m, shock resistance of up to 7,500Gs and a water resistant to 333 meters (1,100 feet).



Special features include the red Blackbird motif on its dial at 6 o’clock as well as special caseback with Silver Fox himself in his flight suit. Very cool!
