How Good are the Ball Watches?

Started the journey in 1891, Mr. Webster C. Ball developed his career in jewelry and watch by building up the Ball Watch Company in Cleveland, Ohio, United States. There was quite a fascinating history behind the founding of this company related to railroads.

Two trains in Kipton collided and caused many deaths in 1891. At that time, both trains used the same track in opposite directions, then must cross each other at the intersection point. The investigation showed that one of the conductor’s watches stopped for four minutes before the fatal crash. To avoid it happening again in the future, Webb Ball played a significant role to the success of the American railroad by making tests and standards for all watches that were used on trains.

Its consistency continues to this day, combining classic pieces, good features, and contemporary in design. This brand also uses various technologies and features, such as high shock resistance, anti-moisture, anti-magnetic, visibility in complete darkness, water resistance up to 600 ft, cold temperature measurement, etc. They are superb, aren’t they?
