ABlogtoRead posted a little bit on the Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster, a mouthful of a watch with some of the most striking styling I’ve seen in a while.
I got to see this piece back at JCK and was extremely impressed. Ball is famous for their gas tube lume and they cover their watches with the stuff. The expected life of the lume is about 25 years, at which point you can have a watchmaker replace it.

Why spend money on a pricey quartz movement when you can get a monstrous Ball with a built-in mechanical thermometer.
This is a dive watch, but the coolest feature is the mechanical thermometer that reads Fahrenheit and celsius. They used tritium tubes in the watch dial and the rotating inner bezel for excellent illumination. There are 2006 Limited Editions available worldwide for $3,299.
