On June 6, 1944, the Allied powers would launch their largest amphibious invasion of the entire 2nd World War when they attacked the German forces stationed on the beaches of Normandy along the northern coast of France. One of the most brutal and hard-fought skirmishes throughout the entire more-than-half-decade ordeal, D-Day marked one of the most significant victories for the Allies, undeniably turning the tide of the conflict and playing a pivotal role in the eventual fall of the Axis powers. The Ohio-based Ball Watch Company is now celebrating the 75th anniversary of when the DUKW’s hit the shoreline with a new limited edition release of the Engineer Master II Normandy.

An online exclusive limited to just 750 units, the striking special edition chronograph is constructed around a 44mm stainless steel case complemented via a bi-directional rotating stainless steel bezel and a transparent sapphire crystal case back that reveals the timepiece’s automatic movement. Paired with a matching stainless steel bracelet with folding buckle, the EMII Normandy’s black or blue dial boasts 21 1mm micro-gas tubes on the hour, minute, and second hands for easy reading in dark conditions. Weighing 180g and water-resistant to 50m (166ft), the Ball Engineer Master II Normandy is currently available for preorder at a price of $2,700.

Purchase: $2,700
