At the end of 19th century, Webb C. Ball established a system of time standardization for use by railroad companies in the United States. Ball Watch becomes the forerunner of the chronometry standard. This Trainsmaster Manufacture model is equipped with a RRM7309-C calibre, manufactured movement led by Ball house itself. It has 80 hours of power reserve, which goes beyond the ordinary range. Includes 15 microtubes of luminescent gas in hours and minutes for excellent night-time readability. It has a nice stainless steel bracelet.
The Trainmaster has an understated beauty. It’s self winding apparatus is truly gorgeous and should be seen. Most amazing is the night sight illumination. I was able to photograph the entire face, including the second hand with my iPhone XS in complete darkness. Simply beautiful. The timepiece is everything one dcpects from BALL.
