Late last year, BALL introduced the Engineer III Bronze Star and the Engineer III Silver Star, a series of very cool pilot’s watches being offered for pre-order at an enticing price point. Following that successful experiment, BALL is back with a similar proposition, this time around with a total aesthetic revamp of an already-existing watch—introducing the new Engineer Master II Voyager. On its surface, the Voyager pulls on some classic flieger design cues—large Arabic numerals and broad sword hands that ensure immediate legibility. But looking beyond that, there is some impressive functionality built into the design.
As the name implies, the Voyager is designed with world travelers in mind. To that end, the Voyager combines two separate dials—a classic 12-hour main dial and a secondary 12-hour sub-dial at six for tracking an additional time zone. It’s an incredibly effective implementation of the complication, and it’s not all too common. There is also a big-date function below 12, standing in place of the BALL logo which has been moved to nine.
