Exclusivity above luxury and popularity

Posted by Sylvans at 3:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Ball Watch may be less popular than the famous luxury Swiss watches, but that is actually a brand strength. Although many people like jumping on the bandwagon—a psychological trait that we don’t want to be left out on something—some prefer swimming on a different tide. These people put more premium in exclusivity or being not ordinary. On this note, wearing a Ball can make you unique and a person who seems to know more about exclusive watches beyond just what one sees in ads. Incidentally, Ball watches are worn by the more discerning celebrities. These include Denzel Washington in his movie, Pelham 123, and KISS drummer Eric Singer. They may not evoke a Tiger Woods-level promotion of another brand or an Olympic-magnitude marketing like another watch, but that’s the point—you and only a few people with exclusive taste are in the know.

Ball technologies for everyday affairs

Posted by Sylvans at 9:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Ball is known for incorporating state-of-the-art technologies in its watch models. Stylish and accurate, Ball watches are more importantly sturdy under extreme weather, making the brand an icon in outdoor sports and scientific explorations. Despite its high technology, Ball is also an ideal everyday watch. Its technologies have practical applications in ordinary situations. For example, its shock resistance is useful should you accidentally hit the watch against a hard surface, e.g. your desk or wall. Its GMT and World Functions is perfect for someone who’s always on the go around the world. Likewise, its water resistance can come handy should you, say, jump into the water off a yacht forgetting that you’re wearing a watch. Lastly, the crown protection system guarantees that the inner workings are protected during sudden pour and you’re out in the open.

The Drive to use technology

Posted by Sylvans at 3:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Ball Watch has been a technologically advanced watch since its inception in the late nineteenth century. Surprisingly, it isn't the technology itself that defines the brand's value proposition. It's the company's drive to perfect precision timekeeping using the latest technologies that the brand stands for. The watch was the first to use time signals from the U.S. Naval Observatory to create a standard time that allowed accurate schedules in the U.S. railroad system. But Ball didn't stop creating watches based on this technology, which, in today's standard, is archaic. Instead, the company pursues newer technologies to develop proprietary systems like its latest A-Proof patented anti-magnetic feature. This technology protects the mechanical movement of Ball watches against the impact of magnetic fields. The technology may be impressive, but, still, the bottomline is to keep accurate timekeeping.

The Man Behind the Name

Posted by Sylvans at 12:46:45 PM in Ball Watch (22)

Webster Ball was born in a farm in Knox County, Ohio but most of his life was dedicated and most remembered for his contribution in the watch making industry. His career in horology did not take a conventional turn either. His journey started with a two-year apprenticeship under a jeweler, after which he moved to Cleveland, Ohio to establish his own practice. He was the first jeweler to use time signals in his watches, revolutionizing the accuracy of timekeeping first in Cleveland, and later after an unfortunate event, in the whole country. When a grim collision in a railway was caused by slight time differences between the two trains, it was Webb Ball who was trusted to improve the system of keeping time. His Ball Watches were the first wrist watches allowed on the railway, and became one pillar in the improvement of accuracy in other domains all over the country.

Arriving in precise time means safety

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:30 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Ball Watch is an organization born out of its founder’s absolute passion for punctuality and safety. Webster C. Ball started as a fledgling watchmaker for the American railroad network. It was in 1891 when passenger train collisions were a common accident which prompted Mr. Ball to design a timepiece with better precision so as to enhance punctuality which ultimately results in safety for trains. From that very first Ball Watch came an entire family of timepieces with deep historical association with the U.S. railroads. From then on, Ball Watch has grown immensely — trailblazing new avenues like technical diving and aviation. while holding on to its colorful past. A perfect example for the brand’s commendable evolution is the Ball Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon that watch aficionados simply can’t help but consider as one of the most state-of-the-art timepieces in the market today.

Ball Watch pioneers modern watch-manufacturing

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Ball Watch is more than just a timepiece. It’s a critical partner during the time of America’s great leap to become a modern-day powerhouse in the late nineteenth century, symbolized by the country’s iconic industrial symbol: the railroad. Founder Webb C. Ball was designated to keep the train on time, all the time, so he developed his watch signature: the first watch to use the time signals from the United States Naval Observatory as reference point to make sure the American railroad system worked. His company, Ball Watch, is regarded as one of the pioneers to set the benchmarks for many of the watch manufacturing features today, such as precision movement, anti-magnetism, isochronism, power reserve, and dial mechanism. It is likewise recognized for developing modern technologies including: gas light, shock resistance, antimagnetic, DLC diamond-like carbon, and cold-temperature resistance features.

Conductors of Progress

Posted by Sylvans at 8:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

When America was building itself in steel and steam, train conductors played a crucial role.  They were at the forefront of literally driving the whole country to progress symbolized by the country’s iconic modernity: the steam engine railways. A single mistake could mean life or death of the passengers, including his own.  In critical conditions, train conductors must trust Ball Watch to guide them down to the millisecond.  They knew that a tad higher or lower of the precise second could mean putting the whole train system at risk, along with the lives and businesses the depended on the railways. Ball Watch pays tribute to these masters of time with its Conductor Edition, considered as one of the most authentic and unique of Ball Watch timepieces.

Strength and precision under the hood

Posted by Sylvans at 1:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Ball watches are renowned for their strength and endurance under extreme pressure.  Let’s take a look at some of the luxury watch brand’s precision and strength features. Ball watches exhibit the self-powered micro gas light Swiss technology that uses tritium electrons against luminous phosphors to produce light. Ball’s gas light is 100 times brighter than luminous paint and it’s said to last for 25 years. Ball watches also feature the signature and patented crown protection system that protects the crown, the most vulnerable part of the case, from water and shock pressure. Likewise, Ball watches are designed to endure cold temperature for up to -40 degrees Celsius. This makes Ball watches an ideal companion during extreme expeditions. Then there’s the Ball’s patented SpringLock system, the world’s first revolutionary anti-shock system that reduces shock impact by 66%. This results in more precision and less disorientation. Ball watches enjoy more strength and precision features that make this timepiece one of the strongest and smart watches in the world.

Give Him Time

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Here’s a nice idea on what you can give your man on a special occasion like his birthday or over the holiday: time. We don’t mean just plainly showing up and be with him for the whole day, but give her something that you’d spend time on. Cook her a surprise dinner at home. If you’re good at crafts, make him a personalized bracelet, or create a tee design that’s uniquely about him and have it printed. Make a home video or an album that shows the milestones of your time together. He’ll appreciate anything that you spend effort and time to make. Of course, you can always give him a Ball Watch and impress him with your appreciation for manly luxury timepieces. You can even pick up some memorized technical terms about the precise engineering behind a Ball watch and see how he a smile forms in his lips.

Technology drives this watch

Posted by Sylvans at 3:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Timepiece Checklist

Posted by Sylvans at 9:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Let’s talk about watches. What are the features to check to make sure you’re getting the best value? You have to go beyond the precious stones embedded in the casing. Or the gold strap. And let’s go beyond the usual, such as being water-resistant and shock-proof. Most timepieces have these features. Let’s look if it has an antimagnetic feature so the watch keeps ticking precisely. Even so, does it have a crown protection system to ensure this tiny piece of engineering feat does its job: to tick without disruption. Find out, too, if the watch can withstand cold temperature. Does it have a diamond-like carbon movement? Does it use gas light? If you answer yes to all of these, you’re likely looking at a Ball Watch. It’s got timepiece technology that makes it elegant as it is strong under extreme condition.

The Watch that ran America

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

Wearing a Ball Watch timepiece goes beyond keeping tab on time. It is an appreciation of the Ball Watch precision engineering that made it the official railroad watch during the country’s pre-war industrial era. When running a complex web of trains across the country before computers, you need no less than a timekeeper that is reliably on time, not a fraction of a second earlier or later.  Any small error could spell a disaster. Ball Watch timepieces delivered accurate timekeeping that made sure no two trains ran on the same track at the same time. Surely, the trains ran smoothly, spearheading America into the most industrialized country then and now. Today, Ball Watch features the same precision timing with its Official Railroad Watch.  Choose from among its classic designs, such as 60 Seconds, 21st Century, Flying Scotsman, Big Boy and GCT.

Ball Watch: Born Tough

Posted by Sylvans at 9:00:00 AM in Ball Watch (22)

The unwavering core mission of Ball Watch since 1891 is also the brand’s time-tested claim to fame – “Accuracy under adverse conditions.” It was more than a hundred years ago when American jeweler and watchmaker Webster Ball, the brand’s founding figure, established a solid reputation for Ball Watch as the official railway standard watch in the United States. Ball Watch has gone to many more places since then, but its aspiration remains unchanged. The Swiss-made, American-inspired watch manufacturer single-mindedly produces modern and sophisticated mechanical watches with to-the-dot accuracy, uncompromised reliability, above-par functionality and tough ruggedness that surmounts the most adverse conditions in the planet – or out of it. Every watch is mounted with in-house calibre movements, 7,500 G force shock resistance, -40 degree Celsius temperature tolerance, patented crown protection system and the patented Ball-engineered micro gas light technology that light up brightly for at least 25 years with no external sources of power. Live, work, play and find adventure in the most adverse conditions with the toughest name ever.

Ball watch is available at Sylvan’s on Main Street, Columbia.
