ENGINEER II MAGNETO VALOR II
HONORING 70 YEARS OF UNBREAKABLE WILL.
The fearlessness to fly high, the courage to soar. BALL Watch Co. commemorates the 70th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force with the Magneto Valor II. Our A-PROOF® anti-magnetic device features a manually-operated iris case back to thwart magnetic disturbance, while special Air Force tributes and 1mm revolutionary micro gas tubes adorn the dial. A timepiece built to honor and withstand the demands of airpower and beyond.
Limited to 399 pieces, the ENGINEER II MAGNETO VALOR II is now available at an exclusive pre-order price starting from USD 1,739* until 15 January 2018.
While the Air Force has pushed innovation higher for 70 years and counting, BALL Watch Co. has led the way with unmatched luminosity. The Magneto Valor II shines bright with 1mm micro gas tubes at the hour markers, as well as on the hour, minute and second hands. The gas tubes are completely self-powered and do not require any external charging source. The numerals on the inner bezel are illuminated with the Super LumiNova paint in green color. In dark conditions, the Magneto Valor II provides extreme readability.
TECHNICALLY ADVANCED, AESTHETICALLY DESIGNED.
In daily life, magnetic fields are increasingly common, and they pose a significant threat to the accuracy of a mechanical movement. Our patented A-PROOF device uses a special alloy called mu-metal to protect the movement against magnetic disturbance up to a record intensity of 80,000 A/m. By rotating the bezel, a beautiful iris-shaped mechanism expands and retracts on the case back to lock or unlock the anti-magnetic protection cage.
PATENTED PROTECTION FOR ENHANCED PRECISION.
One of the lightest components of a mechanical watch, the hairspring is often referred to as the heart of a timepiece. Our SpringLOCK system protects the hairspring using a cage that limits the unfurling of the coils in case of any external impacts. The SpringLOCK reduces the balance spring’s shock impact by 66% and ensures uninterrupted oscillation.
THE JOURNEY NEVER ENDS.
Guided by their mission to fly, fight and win, the U.S. Air Force has been the foundation for joint expeditions around the world. In 2017, the Air Force commemorates its anniversary by forging ahead with innovation, courage and teamwork. The Magneto Valor II is inspired by their unwavering commitment.
BUILT TO EXPLORE IN THE AIR OR ON THE GROUND.
A COSC-certified chronometer, the Magneto Valor II honors the Air Force with blue and yellow accents and a wing insignia on the black sunray dial. The 42mm size is ideal for any form of exploration or occasion, along with the stainless steel bracelet or leather strap.
