Write a review
When one thinks about tool watches, the most prominent would probably be diver’s or chronographs watches. In the wide world of watches, there lies an understated category of tool watch that strongly emphasises the value of high precision timekeeping - Railroad watches. Railroad watches hold notable horological significance, especially American watchmaking history. It was on April 19, 1891 when an unfortunate incident of a train collision in Kipton, or dubbed the ‘Great Kipton Train Disaster’ that occurred due to a misjudge of time.

This sparked the advent of a system for all railroad workers to wear watches strictly approved by watchmakers to forbid variations of more than 30 seconds to ensure utmost safety and precision in American railroad operations. These watches were produced by none other than the Ball watch company, founded by Mr Webster C. Ball. Today, the Ball Watch Company is based in  La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, manufacturing accurate and functional timepieces that faithfully upholds the founding spirit of the brand.

MN2188C-S21-GR1. The stainless steel case has a versatile 40mm diameter with a thickness of 11.3mm, hitting the sweet spots for many wrist sizes.

Throughout the Fireman series, the case construction and finishes has been consistently well executed with multiple detailed finishings. The watch displays a double polished bezel that contrasts with the satin brushed finish on the top of the lugs. At the side of the case, the polished surface transitions smoothly with a polished bevelled edge. In addition, the arched lugs that curve downwards allow the piece to conform around the wrist nicely for a comfortable fit. The watch is held securely with the supplied stainless steel bracelet that locks in place with a sturdy push-button butterfly deployant clasp mechanism.
