Ball Watch Company Watches

About Ball Watch Company Watches We all have the American railways to thank when it comes to the creation of BALL watches. The creation of a railway system in America brought about the first time where accurate timekeeping became important. Especially when travelling in between distant cities. BALL watches were created for the railways and that means they had to be incredibly accurate. Today’s BALL watches are inspired by freedom, travel and facing adversity head on. They feature fashionable designs for modern consumers but the importance of quality, accurate timekeeping is still paramount in the creation of BALL watches.

The History of BALL Watches

BALL watches are linked to the advent of the American railways. The creation of a railway system meant that accurate timekeeping was required for practical reasons and for safety. As each town kept its own local time based on the position of the sun, there were many problems when connecting distant cities by rail. It became difficult to avoid collisions and, in 1891, a collision in Ohio caused several deaths. This led to the appointment of Webb C. Ball as “Chief Time Inspector” – he set up tests and standards for all watches used on trains. His system helped to establish accuracy and uniformity in timekeeping. Webb C. Ball went on to focus his efforts on developing watches for the railroads using the standards he developed. It was Webb C. Ball’s jewellery business in Cleveland which went on to become the Ball Watch Company that we know today.

Functional and Fashionable

The Ball Watch Company today is one of the most respected watch brands in the world. The appearance of these watches has had to change to keep up with modern tastes however the company still keeps to the founding spirit of the brand – industrial function. Modern BALL watches continue Webb C. Ball’s quest for accuracy in timekeeping. Watches like the Ball Watch Company Engineer II Green Berets Automatic Titanium Carbide Case and the Ball Watch Company Mens Fireman Enterprise Auto Stainless Steel Bracelet . When you buy BALL watches you can be sure you are getting a modern and fashionable watch you can rely on.
