Ball watches is a story full of extraordinary passion and twists and turns, which proved that perseverance and commitment can change the watch market forever. The brand's watches owe their accuracy to an obsession with on-time train arrivals - needless to say, the best reputation for a watch brand.
History of Ball watches - created to improve the lives of all people
Ball watches were created to commemorate Webster Clay Ball, an American jeweler who began working for the U.S. Railroad in Cleveland as the person responsible for determining the correct time. The year was 1891, only eight years earlier the United States had been divided into four time zones and standard time had been defined. Webb C. Ball kept watch over the correct time in Cleveland, and probably would have done so for the rest of his life, had it not been for a terrible accident that occurred in Kipton, near Cleveland. One of the mail trains collided with another train, resulting in the deaths of more than a dozen people. All was blamed on the conductor, who entrusted time-keeping to the engineer, but his watch stopped abruptly for four minutes, then started again. The delay misled the conductor, and the four minutes became the cause of many people's deaths.
Webb C. Ball was delegated by the company to investigate the cause of the collision, and then to check the punctuality of the watches the conductors had. After all, at that time a watch was a real social marker, while with conductors it should have been an absolute requirement, and few of them owned a watch. At the time, there were no standards for the production of watches, because at that stage of their development no one was concerned with such problems. Until the Kipton accident - Webb C. Ball was the first to introduce strict rules for building watches, according to which the error of measurement could not exceed a maximum of 30 seconds, while every railroad worker had to own a watch to accurately determine the time of arrival of trains. It was later accepted that anyone asking a railroad employee for the time would always get the correct information.
Remarkable accuracy of Ball watches
Ball watches have become one of the most recognizable brands in the United States. To honor the creator of a complete change in the perception of the correctness of time, the creators of the Ball brand decided that the watches they produce must be as accurate as possible. Therefore, the brand decided to produce its own mechanisms, as this is the way it can have the greatest impact on the precision of its functioning. Thus, Ball watches feature high-end automatic and manual-winding mechanisms, harkening back to classic turn-of-the-century watches. However, the difference is in the parts placed inside - made with modern tools and much more durable materials, they provide longer and trouble-free functioning with much higher accuracy compared to their older counterparts.
Elegance, style and tradition - this is how every Ball watch can be described
The variety of Ball watches is also one of their advantages. Stylistically, the brand set out to maintain the character typical of old watch models - this can be seen primarily in the ornamentation of the hands and the typeface used to mark the indexes. Also the shape of the indexes themselves, presented as sharp arrows, their color, contrasting with the dial, and details such as chronographs or moon phase indicators in a thoughtful way combine with the vintage character of the whole, making Ball watches an ideal gift for a lover of retro style.
