THE SPOTLIGHT ON DISCOVERY.
Extremely readable under adverse conditions, the King combines thick and thin micro gas tubes for industry-leading luminosity. Its 1mm thick micro gas tubes illuminate every hour marker, including the 12 and 6 numerals. The robust hours are matched by 0.3mm x 2mm thin gas tubes that light up every minute. In the dark of night, the King shines bright for perfect and precise time reading that meets all your demands.
The micro gas tubes are unlike any other luminescent material found in watchmaking. The self-powered gas tubes last for 25 years, they do not require recharging from the sun and they do not drain battery power.
INCREDIBLY DURABLE, ALWAYS CAPABLE.
As one of today’s leading watchmaking innovators, BALL is proud to introduce a new, patented winding crown: DuraLOCK. For any timepiece, perhaps its most vulnerable part is the crown and, by extension, the winding stem. When using the crown to set the time and date, the case is exposed to dust, water and other elements that can cause permanent damage.
The DuraLOCK, featuring its patented sealing system, was developed in-house by BALL to ensure high-grade security. When the case is locked, the movement remains clean and its waterproof capabilities are always intact. For exploration around the world, the Engineer III King delivers easy time setting, while its rugged durability protects every mechanical component.
PACKS A PUNCH. TAKES ONE, TOO.
While the DuraLOCK crown prohibits outside interference, our patented Amortiser® anti-shock system eliminates external shock impact. The ingenious technology absorbs impact with a protective, anti-magnetic ring that runs around the movement. In addition, as magnetism is more present than ever in daily life, the timepiece is anti-magnetic to 80K A/m to defend against unseen disturbances.
BUILT TO GO ‘ROUND THE WORLD.
Its style is unmistakable, but its versatility is not to be overlooked. The Engineer III King offers multiple configuration possibilities, so that every explorer can create a timepiece that fits their respective lifestyle.
The 40mm and 43mm cases reveal classic looks perfect for any occasion, while readily embracing exploration. For added durability and design, the King is presented in stainless steel and titanium carbide, and comes with a stainless steel bracelet or calf leather strap. The black and blue dials sit below the anti-reflective sapphire crystal and display a simple timelessness. No matter the combination, it’s capable of handling all your daily requirements and spontaneous adventures.
