It’s impressive to think just how many different niches watches have evolved to fill. Divers, world timers, perpetual calendars, simple dress watches and everything in between are out there in abundance, providing utility and choice for all tastes. The watch we have here today, however, probably wins the award for strangest niche.
This is the Ball Fireman Storm Chaser Pro, a watch designed in partnership with Dr. Joshua Wurman, a distinguished meteorologist and member of the BALL Explorers Club. Its purpose? As the name suggests, the Fireman Storm Chaser Pro is designed to accompany storm chasers, or to be more specific, tornado chasers. In practice, however, the Fireman Storm Chaser Pro is simply a clean, attractive modern sports chronograph that packs a serious punch. And on top of that, it boasts the solid build and the tritium tube technology Ball has come to be known for. Let’s take a closer look.
