This BALL Tool Watch Was Designed For Reliable Search & Rescue Performance

Although smartphones have made watches obsolete in most everyday applications, there are certain occupations wherein reliable timekeeping is a non-negotiable factor. For instance, when divers are performing a critical search and rescue mission, it becomes a race against the clock in which every second is as important as the last.

With the announcement of the Roadmaster Rescue Chronograph, Ohio-based BALL has crafted a watch that’s perfectly suited to such occasions. For starters, it’s powered by an automatic RR1402 movement, a hardy unit that features a 48-hour power reserve and an accumulated measurement of up to 12 hours. And because the dial and chronograph subdials come fitted with BALL’s trademark tritium gas tubing, it’s ready to shine the moment things get dark — no charging necessary. But the star of the show is easily the watch’s pusher technology. Operated by two locking pushers, it uses the dial’s pulsometer scale in order to allow for accurate heart rate measurements with just a press of a button. When you consider that all of this comes packaged in a 41mm titanium-steel case that’s rated to 100m and resistant to heat, cold, and shock, it makes for a watch that’s ready for any mission. Pre-order today for $2,199.
