Since 2009, CronotempVs Collectors has provided a space for members of their club to connect with one another and share their enthusiasm for all things horology. The private collector’s club has come a long way since then, with an ever growing community of members spread across 18 different countries and a long list of their very own exclusive collaborative watches with prominent brands that include the likes of A. Lange & Söhne, Speake-Marin and URWERK. CronotempVs Collectors has also partnered up with Oris and independent brands such as Habring and Zeitwinkel on watches that aren’t just limited to the club, but available to the entire watch community. In their latest collaborative project, they’ve tapped into the railroad inspired tool watch manufacturer, Ball Watch & Co.
The new release by CronotempVs Collectors and Ball Watch & Co. is dubbed the 00Red. The double zeros not only signify the moment when the time hits midnight, but also the time when Ball Watch & Co.’s signature tritium gas tubes are fully on display. The 00Red contains a total of 33 tritium gas tubes that comprise the hour markers, numerals and lumination on the hands. The lume technology on Ball Watch & Co.’s watches are really something to behold in person, as the lume is invariably on, day or night.
