Today’s Ball watches are equipped with patented, Ball-engineered, self-powered micro gas light technology that illuminates their watches for 25 years. Their other innovations include 7,500 G force shock resistance, -40 Celsius temperature rating, and 12,000A/m magnetic field resistance. Since 1891, Ball watches have proven their famous standard of “Accuracy Under Adverse Conditions.”
Webb C. Ball’s strict guidelines for manufacturing timepieces with resistance to magnetism and reliable timekeeping in 5 positions, became the driving force behind standardizing the watch industry worldwide. (When a train arrived precisely on time, trainmasters would say, “That guy’s on the Ball,” and an American idiom was born).
