Since 1891, BALL Watch Company has been producing mechanical timepieces that comply with the most stringent criteria for precision, quality and reliability. As a pioneer of chronometry standards and with a rich past closely associated with the history of the American railroads, BALL Watch remains one of the most respected and well established watch brands in the United States. BALL Watches are Swiss Made, utilizing certified and house Swiss mechanical movements. The extraordinary strength of BALL watches is reflected in particular by their shock resistance, their defense against magnetic fields and their water resistance. The real signature of all BALL Watches, the dial indexes and the hands are fitted with micro tubes of luminous H3 gas. Ensuring perfect visibility even in the deepest darkness, this is state of the art Swiss technology while being up to 100 times more efficient that conventional luminous paints.
