Who said women’s watches have to be adorned with colourful gemstones, be in effeminate colours, and have a slender design? Neither do men’s timepieces have to be chunky and linked for a masculine and sophisticated look. In an age where genderless fashion is rising in popularity, it is also time for us to revisit the way we wear our watches.
While unisex timepieces are not new, modern men's watches are becoming more refined, whereas women’s watches are getting upsized with advanced technology built into them for a bolder look.
Here we’ve gathered 4 BALL watches in Singapore with designs that don’t necessarily confine to gender categories, allowing both men and women to pull them off easily.
BALL Roadmaster Marine GMT
The brand that once ran America’s railroad, the BALL Roadmaster series now equips explorers worldwide with high-functioning, robust, and intelligent watches to accompany them on life’s adventures. The series continues this objective with the release of the BALL Roadmaster Marine GMT watch Collection, a design that has made history as the world’s first GMT watch with a day and date function.
Each BALL Roadmaster Marine GMT watch is carefully engineered from lightweight and tough titanium, powered by a COSC-certified movement, and equipped with BALL’s legendary micro-gas tube technology, this watch is perfect for exploring the elements.
Limited to just 1,000 pieces each, there are currently two variations of the BALL Roadmaster Marine GMT watch that you can choose from in Singapore:
The BALL Roadmaster Dg3030b-S1cj-Bk Limited Edition Marine Gmt Men Watch comes with a black-blue bezel and a black dial, while the BALL Roadmaster Dg3030b-S5cj-Bk Limited Edition Marine Gmt Men Watch sports a green bezel and a black dial.
The handsome-coloured bezels are crafted from ceramic – a material known for its scratch resistance and long-lasting colour. Below it, a 40mm high-grade strength titanium case delivers incredible durability and a lightweight wearing experience for wearers.
Furthermore, the case size of 40mm is ideal for both men and women – allowing wearers to go from business formal to the great outdoors for an adventure of a lifetime.
BALL Engineer Master II
Revisiting a timeless classic, the modern BALL Engineer Master Ii Nm1080c-L13-Bk Aviator Men Watch has a slightly louder design than its predecessor while still maintaining a vintage touch.
One of the most important aspects of a pilot’s watch is its high legibility, something this BALL Watch model has done exceptionally well. Taking inspiration from the Wright brothers’ very first flight in 1903, the watch has an oversized design – case size of 46mm – with large numerals and indexes. While the watch is designed with pioneering aviators in mind, the overall design and calf leather strap with a stainless steel standard buckle give it a more dynamic look.
BALL Fireman Victory
The classic BALL Fireman Victory is back with a new and improved design. With the same finishing as all the other BALL watches that we know and love, tritium gas tubes in the hands and a dial that make time-telling a breeze under low-light conditions, the BALL Fireman Victory is available for both men and women.
The BALL FIREMAN NM2098C-S5J-BK VICTORY MEN WATCH sports a 40mm wide case and is slightly over 11mm thick. On the other hand, the BALL FIREMAN NL2098C-S3J-BK VICTORY WOMEN WATCH slightly smaller, with a case size of 31mm and thickness of approximately 10mm. BALL’s customised ETA automatic movement powers both watch models.
The design of both watches is a pleasing mix of smooth curves complemented with contrasting straight lines. And, to keep the symmetry of the markers, the date window has been repositioned to just after 4 o’clock.
The BALL Fireman Victory is available in different watch face colours – silver, black, and blue – which makes for a great everyday watch.
BALL Engineer Hydrocarbon Original
The BALL Engineer Hydrocarbon Original is another heavy-duty diving watch. While the watch has a vintage look, it also has a distinctive crown guard that differentiates it from its competitors. The crown locks down to ensure that it is always screwed in.
The bezel of the BALL Engineer Hydrocarbon Original has a sapphire crystal as protection – something that is not very commonly seen; while the GTLS illuminations are cleverly held underneath the dial and bezel. However, to accommodate the crown, the watch is designed to be a chunky-looking timepiece with a 14.5mm thick case.
Aside from the design, the watch has other notable features like 200m water resistance, anti-magnetic shielding, and a series of anti-shock characteristics.
The BALL Engineer Hydrocarbon Original also comes in a perfect size for women – BALL Engineer Hydrocarbon Dl2016b-S3caj-Wh Ceramic Midsize Women Watch. With a case diameter of 36mm and a sweet baby pink bezel, this watch shares the same high technology and distinct designs as the model for men.
