The 24-hour rotating ceramic top bezel in both directions can display a third time zone different from Greenwich Mean Time or home time when used with a skeleton design GMT hand that circles one lap in 24 hours, with blue during daylight hours and black at night. The short hand, on the other hand, can be adjusted independently by two push buttons on the left side of the case (10 o’clock button to advance every hour and 8 o’clock button to return every hour). This allows you to quickly adjust to the local time at your destination. This quick configuration feature is an innovative mechanism developed by Phi Van Trang, Head of Patrick Lab, Ball Watch R&D Division. Each button is slightly rotated (1 click = 60° / 6 clicks to rotate 1) to alternately unlock and lock, preventing erroneous operation and being designed for peace of mind from the viewpoint of waterproof and dustproof. The crown has a maximum of two steps back, the first stage adjusts the date, and the second stage adjusts the time when the non-second hand moves in tandem.
The current standard size case with a diameter of 40 mm is made of titanium, which has the advantages of hardness, light weight and rust resistance, and has a satin finish that gives a calm impression on the surface. The bracelet is a combination of titanium and stainless steel to optimize the weight balance for a good fit on the arm. In addition, to enjoy the dynamism of the mechanical movement, a sapphire caseback is used.
Other features include 300m water resistance for daily use, shockproof construction (5,000Gs), smart case (14mm thick), anti-reflective sapphire glass windshield that maintains visibility even in strong sunlight, Swiss C.O.S.C. certified chronometer for high accuracy, date display to help you during your business time, etc. It is also characterized by high basic performance in pursuit of usability. Of course, the hands and dial are equipped with the self-luminous micro-gaslight that is the symbol of ball watches, and the ceramic top bezel scale is coated with phosphorescent Super-LumiNova to ensure good visibility in the dark.
