    Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT II represents a distinguished evolution with its beautifully curved sapphire bezel, illuminated by micro gas tubes. Featuring extreme readability in darkness, three time zone displays and our patented, extra tough folding buckle. Built for the bustling demands of world travel.



    The beloved Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT II in black-red dual tone bezel got a facelift with the compact 40mm size. Yet, it remains the only external GMT bezel illuminated by revolutionary micro gas tubes. Built for exploration, the timepiece simultaneously tracks three time zones in the darkest conditions and handles adversity with our patented folding buckle and COSC certified precision. With bright luminosity and ultra-tough engineering, it’s perfect for venturing into uncharted territory.

          A MODERN CLASSIC: THE ONLY EXTERNAL GMT BEZEL ILLUMINATED BY MICRO GAS TUBES.

          Still ahead of its time, the Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT II is a jet-setting modern classic. Whether cutting through dark skies or planning a long voyage, instant visibility in darkness is taken to new heights. The groundbreaking rotating bezel is illuminated by micro gas tubes for unmatched brightness in all dark conditions. This revolutionary timepiece is specially crafted for commercial pilots and is a trusted tool while navigating through the darkest nights. It is a timepiece without equal.

          THE UNIFICATION OF THREE TIME ZONES.

          The sapphire bi-directional rotating bezel features an illuminated 24-hour graduation and signifies a third time-zone in addition to the standard and GMT time readings. Pilots can use the GMT hand to track the time of their home city and the 24-hour bezel to track the destination city’s time, while the standard hour and minute hands track the aircraft’s local time.

          TAKE FLIGHT IN THE DARK OF NIGHT.

          On the aviator-inspired dial, revolutionary micro gas tubes shine at each hour index and on the main hands for easy readability. The 3, 6 and 9 o’clock markings feature double gas tube markings, while the 12 o’clock position is adorned with a pair of ultra-distinctive gas tubes for quick orientation in darkness. The second time-zone GMT hand tops this all off with green gas tubes, in tribute to BALL’s corporate colors.

          EASILY HANDLES A LITTLE TURBULENCE.

          The AeroGMT II is powered by the BALL RR1201-C self-winding mechanical movement. The COSC certified precision is safeguarded by robust technology, including shock resistance to 7,500Gs and anti-magnetic protection to 4,800 A/m. On the 40mm machined stainless steel case, our patented crown protection system ensures the crown is properly and securely sealed.

          FORGE A STRONG IDENTITY.

          Around the wrist, the AeroGMT II comes complete with a metal bracelet fitted with BALL’s patented triple folding buckle – capable of withstanding 1,400 newtons of force. This configuration fits comfortably with aviation apparel, while also complementing the bold bezel in giving the pilot excellent usability in form and in function.
