Ball Watch Company knows what it’s like to be in the dark and wonder what time it is, only to look down at your watch and barely see the numerals or the hands. Their Roadmaster Starlight Bronze will never leave you wondering what you’re looking at. The numbers are so bright that they rival the watch’s name—Starlight—thanks to its tritium illumination, which lights up the Roman numerals and hands bright enough to be seen in any situation.
The Starlight comes fully decked out with all the bells and whistles you expect from a Ball watch. You can choose from two movements—a Ball RRM7309-C automatic movement, and in-house model, with an 80-hour power reserve or an ETA 2836-2 with 38 hours of power reserve.
Both movements are COSC chronometer certified. The RRM7309-C comes in a 42mm wide case, while the ETA comes in a 42mm wide case.
The case is made of a bronze-aluminium alloy, which is corrosion resistant yet still develops a patina over the years. As a dive watch should be, the watch is water resistant up to 200 metres. The larger model displays the day and date, while the smaller only shows the date.
The Roadmaster Starlight Bronze is limited to just 1,000 pieces in each variation. You can preorder the watches until May 22, 2019. The 43mm version sells for USD$2,699, while the 42mm is marked at USD$2,299.
