We love the Ball watch mindset; make high spec watches that compete with the best Swiss prestige brands, but retail them for about £2300, rather than 10K.
Good news for fellow Ball fans, the new 2021 Roadmaster Pilot GMT is equipped with two remarkable timekeeping functions. When travelling, simply push the quick-set buttons to jump the local 12-hour hand to its desired position without stopping the second hand. Then turn the crown to jump the date correctly into position, eliminating the need to circle the dial with the hour hand. OK , it’s no effort to set a GMT hand, but you have to admire the jump hour function feature as a little bit of extra tech that adds value to the Roadmaster.
Complete with a virtually-scratchproof ceramic bezel, amazingly bright micro gas lights and chronometer-grade precision, the Pilot GMT is an ingenious everyday watch for the modern explorer, say Ball.
