Few watchmakers have a more fascinating backstory than Ball. The company’s history is inextricably linked to that iconic symbol of progress, the American railroad. The railroad allowed the USA to expand west, but it also created a unique challenge for American entrepreneurs. With no standard timekeeping in the late 19th century, getting trains to run smoothly was far from easy. Things came to a head in 1891 when a conductor’s broken watch caused a deadly head-on collision in Kipton, Ohio. In response, the government made Webb C.Ball the country’s “Chief Time Inspector”, putting him in charge of improving the accuracy of timekeeping on trains. Through his tireless work and innovation, trains became much safer and the Ball watch company was born.
Over the years, Ball has grown into one of the world’s most respected watchmakers. Its industrial roots are clear as it remains committed to functionality above all else. Famous for maintaining pinpoint accuracy in the most adverse conditions, Ball watches have become the gold standard for sturdy, reliable timepieces.
The modern Ball range combines the latest technology with the hardworking ethos of the old American West to create elegant, practical watches and watch straps that will last a lifetime.
