BALL Fireman NightBreaker 2

Coming from the Swiss-based watchmaker BALL is a new affordable and highly customizable watch – the Fireman NightBreaker. Designed for today’s modern explorer, the new BALL Fireman NightBreaker is now available at a special pre-order price of just CHF 709 (USD $749). This is a time-limited offer and will expire on 12 July 2017. Customers who pre-order the watch will receive their order in October 2017. Beginning from November 2017, the BALL Fireman NightBreaker will be officially available at a full retail price of CHF 1,135 (USD $1,200).

The new BALL Fireman NightBreaker is equipped with the brand’s revolutionary micro gas tubes. Manufactured with innovative Swiss laser technology, the watch’s 15 micro gas tubes (hour, minute, second hands and dial) provide outstanding illumination and extreme readability. Filled with tritium gas, they are self-powered and last up to 25 years. They also don’t require sun energy to recharge nor do they drain battery. At 1.5 mm high, the Fireman NightBreaker’s micro gas tubes are the tallest ever in a BALL watch. For the first time in its history, the watchmaker has enabled its customers to customize the gas tube color. The micro gas tubes are customizable in white, yellow and green for unique luminosity. Another customizable feature of the latest BALL Fireman NightBreaker is its dial. Available in blue, silver, or black, the dial is available with or without the 4, 8 and 12 Arabic numerals.

The 2017 BALL Fireman NightBreaker has a 40 mm stainless steel case. The case is water resistant to 100 meters and features a screw-in crown. Thanks to the BALL’s patented Amortiser system, the Fireman NightBreaker is resistant to shocks and impacts. The new timepiece is also antimagnetic up to 4,800 A/m. The watch’s solid caseback can be engraved with name engraving. The engraving is restricted to one line and up to 13 characters, including spaces. Beneath the AR-coated sapphire crystal is an extremely readable dial that features hours, minutes and central sweeping seconds. Positioned at 3 o’clock is a magnified date window. Completing the dial we have the BALL logo placed just underneath the 12 o’clock.


The new BALL Fireman NightBreaker features 15 micro gas tubes


Like all BALL watches, the new Fireman NightBreaker features an automatic, mechanical movement. Powering the Fireman NightBreaker is the caliber BALL RR1103 with 25 jewels. Essentially the Ball version of ETA 2824-2, this self-winding movement beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and enables a power reserve of 38 hours. In addition to different gas tube colors and dial designs, the customers can also choose between various strap options. The “default” BALL Fireman NightBreaker model comes with a sporty stainless steel bracelet with folding buckle. The watch is also available with a black calf leather strap with pin buckle, brown calf leather strap with pin buckle, and black rubber strap with pin buckle. For an additional cost, the customers can also opt for a special French-made NATO strap. Available in green-champagne, red-white and blue-white motifs, it uses complex and time-consuming weaves and is more durable than ordinary straps.
