    Ball EM II Diver Chronograph?

    OK..I must have missed this but I can't find any info on this one. Is this a new model that is coming out or an old model that is discontinued. Not on Ball's site.

    I saw this pic on another post. Is it available? Third watch from left on top.

    Thanks,

    David

    Still undecided. It with either be the Ball calibre 250 single-button chronograph or a combo 3rd crown/reset pusher similar to the IWC Aquatimer. The engineers are working on that now.

    How about regular chrono pushers and the rotating bezel crown at 10?

    Another question. Will the chrono pushers be operable when submerged?

    I am totally stoked about this model!

    Thanks Jeremy.

    So is the watch in the picture a prototype or is it available? It has 2 pushers. One I assume is a reset as is most with Chrono Functions. If you would like my imput, I like the two pusher look. Also, if it wouldn't raise the cost of the watch a lot, having them functional under water would be nice too.

    Where can I get it?

    Cheers,

    That watch is a prototype - the release is supposed to be before yearend.

    It has 2 pushers. One I assume is a reset as is most with Chrono Functions.
    The prototype has only 1 pusher. The lower crown operates the rotating bezel. This may change depending on the engineers' decision.

    The final version may be the single-button chrono movement of the Pulsemeter Pro or it may be a 2 button chrono with the lower button & rotating bezel crown combined. Still TBA.

    If you would like my imput, I like the two pusher look. Also, if it wouldn't raise the cost of the watch a lot, having them functional under water would be nice too.

    Where can I get it?

    Cheers,

    There seems to be a great demand for pushers that operate underwater... just look at the Doxa site for another example, as the T-Graph doesn't allow this (I have one). Ball, if you could make this work, it would instantly elevate your chrono diver above the majority of others on the market.

    I'm anxiously awaiting this model.
