In 2016, BALL Explorer Danny Thompson raced into the record books with a speed of 406.7 mph. More than a spectacular achievement, it was a dream come true, as Danny followed in the footsteps of his legendary father.
Inspired by Danny Thompson and the possibilities of man and machine united, BALL introduces the limited edition Roadmaster GMT. It is the only watch to boast a GMT inner bezel illuminated by self-powered micro gas tubes. Featuring colorful micro gas lights for extreme readability and aerodynamic curves, the Roadmaster GMT is built for the worldwide pursuit of every dream.

Automatic caliber | Colorful micro gas lights | Illuminated 24-hour GMT bezel | Stainless steel or DLC 42mm case | Amortiser® anti-shock system
BRIGHT AND COLORFUL IN TWO TIME ZONES
The Roadmaster GMT features a 24-hour GMT inner bezel illuminated by micro gas lights. The combination of two striking features enables every explorer to embark endlessly on new journeys around the world - day and night. In addition to the bright bezel, the dial includes a bold and colorful array of micro gas tubes: green, yellow, ice blue and white. The colors work in complete harmony to provide extreme readability and stylish design.
DYNAMIC CURVES AND ROBUST PROTECTION
In creating the case, our designers sought to add an enhanced aerodynamic element. The result: a beautiful, sporty case with sharp curves that truly stand out. The 42mm size, presented in stainless steel and diamond-like carbon, provides perfect balance. A NATO strap is also available for an even sportier look.
On the inside, our patented Amortiser® anti-shock system eliminates external shock impact with a protective, anti-magnetic ring that runs around the movement. In addition, the timepiece is shock resistant to 5,000Gs and waterproof to 100 meters.
A LEGACY OF SPEED
In 1960, racing legend Mickey Thompson hit 406.6 mph in the Challenger 1 at the Bonneville Salt Flats. In 2016, again on the famed surface, his son and BALL Explorer Danny Thompson joined the 400 club behind the wheel of the Challenger 2 with an official time of 406.7 mph - a new national record for a piston-powered vehicle. For Danny, the feat was more than 50 years in the making, driven by the passion to fulfill his dream. This August, Danny will roll out the Challenger 2 once again, as he chases more records in what could be the fastest encore of all time.
