Ball have launched an updated variant on their Roadmaster Chronograph 999. There are twin sub-dial versions, plus a COSC and non-COSC version too. The watch also features a locking detail on the chrono buttons, so once you srat timekeeping you can secure that pusher, so that it doesn’t accidentally get pushed to stop it. Handy on things like motorcycle endurance racing or time trial cycle races etc.
Case width is 42mm and cases are made from titanium. The usual gas tube lume is there for night viewing too. Caseback is see-thru and there’s a day/date feature.
Have to say we like the panda sub-dial versions best, as an all black dial isn’t our thing, but you may be different. In all there are two COSC and two non-COSC options to choose from.
Here’s the word from Ball;
“A compact blend of enduring history and future-forward craftsmanship, the 42mm automatic watch measures speed with its chronograph function and tachymeter scale. Its performance carries our legacy of extreme accuracy and easy readability, essential elements of the railroad era and trusted tools for the modern explorer. With 2 options of movement and dial designs, the series is limited to 1,000 pieces each. Now available for pre-order until 21st June, starting at a pre-order price of £2331.”
The COSC version costs £2760.
