Ball have a new model on their site. The Roadmaster First Responder is a watch with those essential golden hour time frames, for those giving emergency medical aid after an accident, or violent attack. There is also a pulsometer, so you can check for irregular heart rate. There is a rotor lock version too, which Ball claim can protect the movement from a fall of over 5 metres.
That makes it a handy choice for adventure hikers, climbers, wild swimmers and many more people. The lume is also mighty cool, as you’d expect on a Ball watch.
It’s an impressive 41mm auto, with 200m of water resistance and the GMT feature is nice to have too. Ticks a lot of boxes, Swiss made.
Here’s the word;
“Roadmaster First Responder is built for the most adverse environments and emergency medical situations. It is designed to optimize the “golden hour” and “platinum ten”, the 60-minute and 10-minute windows for frontline responders to increase the likelihood of positive outcomes.
The 41mm tool watch is loaded: an external bezel for setting 60-minute countdowns, an internal bezel for tracking elapsed time, pulsometer and asthmometer, a GMT sub-dial, and a power reserve indicator. Day and night, it equips skilled personnel with the toughness and brightness to help save lives. Limited to 1,000 pieces each. The Roadmaster First Responder is now available for pre-order until 6 Sep 2023 at an exclusive price from £2001.”
Yeah, random one pound there. The rotor lock variant retails at £2140 on the launch deal by the way.
