A proudly American watchmaking company, Ball Watches was a part of the industry that was greatly responsible for the development of the American railroads. Indeed, before there was a functioning railway system, there was not much of a need for precise timekeeping in America.
The history of Ball Watches is an interesting one. By 1883, it had been decided that America needed to be divided into 4 time zones and adopt the Standard time. When the Standard Time had been accepted, Webster Cay Ball, from Ohio, became the first jeweller to manufacture watches to use the new timekeeping methods and thus bring accurate time to Ohio. In 1891, he was appointed as a Chief Inspector for the rail lines.
With the expertise that Ball Watches would eventually bring to the industry, it’s hardly surprising that today they are one of the most established and most respected watchmakers in the United States. The team continuously updates its watch collections in order to keep up with customer preferences as well as industry changes. “Industrial Functional” is the focus of every watch, so while the designs might change, the primary focus does not. Every detail of the watches is still a representation of the original designs drawn up by the founder.
Unlike other watchmakers, Ball Watches has a specific mission. And that is to remind people to be themselves and to encourage people to push their own boundaries. As their watches are designed with quality materials and built using timeless, reliable techniques, Ball Watches are ideal for the thrill seekers and the adventurers living life on their own terms. These watches bring out the individual within the person, and you can be sure that every watch is as unique as they come.
So, while you are taking the path less taken, you can select a watch from one of their collections.
