With the waterfowl season fast approaching, it’s a perfect time to welcome Ball Watch Company to Ducks Unlimited’s (DU) Corporate Partner Program. To commemorate DU’s many conservation achievements, Ball Watch has designed a luxury timepiece called the Engineer Master II Sportsman.
Part of Ball’s Engineer Master II Collection, the DU Sportsman’s watch includes a Super-Luminova sunrise/sunset indicator with an internal bezel under the sapphire crystal glass, high-performance military-grade water resistant strap and a titanium casing that houses shock- and water-resistant internal components, making it suitable for hunting. In addition, the watch is equipped with tritium tube dial illumination making it very easy to read in the early morning hours.
Aside from the many mechanical benefits and features, the watch includes a 3D inscription of the famous “flying mallard” duck on the back case and sports the DU logo on the face.
“We are very proud to have Ball Watch join our Corporate Partner program,” said Jeremy Smith, DU’s director of corporate relations. “Much like DU, Ball Watch Company has a rich heritage and unique beginning. They recognize the conservation impact DU has been able to achieve and the importance of our volunteers and supporters to the organization’s success.”
As CEO for Ball Watch Company, USA – the North American distributor for the iconic brand – Jeffrey P. Hess wanted to develop a partnership with DU that would allow Ball Watch to make a significant impact on wetlands conservations.
“Growing up in Central Illinois, my friends and family were always keenly aware of Ducks Unlimited’s wetlands conservation program,” Hess said. “As a young and avid hunter who veered off into the world of fine timepieces, I jumped at the chance to be involved in the manufacture of a luxury watch that would not only withstand the rigors that a hunter puts on a timepiece but, more importantly, help the cause of conserving wetlands.”
To order your watch, see the ad on page 43 of DU Magazine’s September/October issue.
