Founded in 1891 by Webb C. Ball in Cleveland, Ohio, Ball Watches is directly linked to the American railroad history. Currently based in Switzerland, the company has positioned itself as an innovative firm that works hard on developing new technologies. Webb C. Ball was designated the "Chief Time Inspector" after a head-on collision between two trains called for the need to have standardized time in watches used on trains. He grew the "RR Standard" to assure a high accuracy and perfect time reading. Since then, Ball has continued to grow and expand on its innovations and technologies. Included in their accomplishments are ³H micro gas tubes, crown protection system, Amortiser anti-shock system, SpringLOCK System and the Slide Chronograph. Their collections are all inspired by the American railroads in both name and design.
From a rock ‘n roll legend from the band Kiss, Eric Singer, to famous actor and comedian Will Ferrell, the Ball watch brand is both popular and beloved. This watch has been in space, to the deepest depths of the ocean and even to the top of the highest mountains in the world. When it comes to integrity, you won’t find a brand that delivers more value, style, or luxury than Ball watches.
