Ball keep on re-inventing their chronographs, with this latest one channelling the spirit of exploration and mountain rescue, plus offering the word `Pulsations’ on the bezel. You don’t see that every day.
The Roadmaster Rescue variant is a limited edition and offers the usual high quality Swiss engineering, fit n finish. Here’s the press info;
A purpose-built tool for critical search and rescue situations, the new Roadmaster Rescue Chronograph delivers extreme accuracy, easy readability and high functionality. Engineered with a patented pusher locking system, the chronograph function works in unison with the pulsometer scale to measure heart rate, while two illuminated sub-dial counters track elapsed time.
And for countdowns at all hours, the ceramic diving bezel features a bold micro gas tube inset. Vital functionality and versatile form that’s ready to venture wherever necessary.
The new Roadmaster Rescue Chronograph in green ceramic bezel insert is limited to 1,000 pieces each. Now available for pre-order until 4 August 2021 at an exclusive price, which is £1590.
MAY I TAKE YOUR PULSE?
The chronograph hand works in conjunction with the dial’s pulsometer scale – graduated for 15 pulsations – to quickly measure one’s heart rate. To operate: start the chronograph and count the person’s heartbeats. Stop the chronograph at the 15th beat. The hand will point to the scale and indicate the heart rate frequency per minute.
In addition to the pulsometer scale, the chronograph can track long periods of elapsed time: the sub-dial at 12 o’clock is a 30-minute counter, while the 6 o’clock sub-dial is a 12-hour counter.
There are black dial/bezel and blue dial/bezel options available too.
