MHB’s Stephanie Lim and I headed over to One Utama Shopping Centre on 27 June 2016 for the official launch of the new Ball Watch concept store in the mall. The opening of the first Ball Concept Store at the One Utama Shopping Centre in the Klang Valley provides a platform for watch lovers to view and purchase the brand’s comprehensive collection in an elegant environment that mirrors the sophistication of the timepieces, together with a range of professional services.

Introduced to Malaysia nearly twelve years ago, BALL has a presence in over 20 of countries, with Malaysia having the first concept store to open globally only after China. Staying true to BALL Watch’s core values, the concept store’s interior has been carefully created by the Ball studio. The interior is dominated in black tinted glass to showcase one of the brand’s key features of their timepieces – the glow in the dark technology.

To commemorate the boutique opening, Ball Watch is exhibiting some of the antique BALL timepieces which is from the Ball museum for limited period only. The viewing time is from 10.00am to 10.00pm daily at the BALL Watch concept store in 1 Utama Shopping Centre. Furthermore, any purchase at the BALL concept store is entitled a special gift and an additional two (2) years warranty.

Here are some technologies present in Ball Watches:

Night reading evolution – Micro gas tubes (H₃)

Self-Powered Micro Gas Tubes (H₃) are a novel light source manufactured by means of innovative Swiss laser technology.  They provide superior, longlife brightness – 100 times brighter than markings using luminous paints – with a lifetime easily reaching 25 years.  The BALL micro gas tubes do not need recharging from the sun and do not drain batteries. However, the brightness of H₃ micro gas lights will deteriorate over the years. 

 

Anti-Magnetism

An anti-magnetic mechanical watch does not stop when exposed to a magnetic field of 4,800 A/m and subsequently does not deviate by more than 30 seconds per day. Anti-magnetic timepieces from BALL Watch surpass this standard, particularly the Engineer Hydrocarbon series with 12,000 A/m standard protection.”

 

Temperature Measurement (TMT)

The BALL TMT movement powers the world’s first mechanical thermometer from -35°C to 45°C (-31°F to 113°F) wristwatch. It uses a spiral bimetallic thermometer to measure temperature with far more accuracy than temperature modules used in past watches

 

Shock Resistance – Built to be strong

Built with the highest quality standards in mind, every BALL watch undergoes rigorous testing procedures to verify its impeccable shock resistance up to 5,000Gs. 

With the Engineer Hydrocarbon collection, Ball Watch goes well beyond the above standard by testing with a tougher 1.5 meter hammer strike, raising the resistance to 7,500Gs. A third shock test against the relatively weaker three o’clock crown position of the watch tests our patented crown protection system to ensure it functions properly. Almost all Engineer Hydrocarbon watch models can resist to this 7,500Gs shock resistance test without any damage. 

Crown Protection System – For superior water and shock resistance

The patented crown protection system guarantees superior water and shock resistance, even at the most vulnerable area of the case, the crown. Many watches are damaged due to water leakage or external shock damages occurring at the crown. The crown, particularly if it is not a screwed-in crown, is among the most at risk parts
