Ball Celebrates 245 Years Of The USMC With 3 Special Engineer Watches

Apr 22, 2020

Category: Style

The United States Marine Corps was founded on November 10th, 1775. For those who are keeping score, that means that the USMC is actually older than the United States itself — by almost nine months, in fact. That means, this year, the military organization turns 245-years-old. To honor that milestone, as well as their own American heritage, the folks at Ball have designed a trio of special-edition Engineer II watches.

The first two watches in the collection are relatively similar in their functionality — both featuring BALL caliber RR1103 movements, 15 micro gas tubes for night reading, and either stainless steel or TiC-coated stainless steel cases. The third, however, is actually an online-exclusive automatic GMT with a BALL caliber RR1302 movement, 36 micro gas tubes, a 24-hour sub-dial, and a 42-hour power reserve with a sub-dial indicator. All three also benefit from magnified date windows, anti-reflective sapphire crystals, and exclusive USMC branding on both the face and caseback. Pricing ranges from $1,549 up to $1,699.
