    Hello

    Up for sale is a nice condition Ball Railroad Official Standard pocket watch.

    This watch was made for use on a railroad as watches used by railroads needed to be very accurate. It was one of several approved watches. Web C Ball was a jeweler that was tasked by the big railroads to institute a time keeping standard.

    Webb Ball did not make watches, he contracted them out to Waltham, Hamilton and others to make them with his specs

    This watch is a Ball Official Railroad standard watch that was made by Waltham at some point between 1902 and 1904(going by the serial number)

    The watch is a lever set watch.

    The watch looks good and has gold gearing and gold around some of the jewels. It also has the Ball Official Railroad Standard seal engraved on the movement.

    I had the watch looked over by my watch guy. He looked it over and pronounced it in great shape for being well over 100 years old.

    The watch winds and sets correctly. The watch keeps great time and runs well

    That said, I don't know when it last got serviced. I have not had it serviced(I had it looked over but not serviced)

    The gold filled case looks great for its age.

    This would be a great watch for a collection.

    In the pictures the gold around the jewels looks dark. However it is just the shadows. The gold around the jewels looks bright and shiny.

    Watch comes with chain

    I am asking $170 Shipped USA Only(I doubt you will find one this nice for a lower price)

    Shipping is via USPS Priority Mail with tracking and insurance.

    Watch comes from a smoke and pet free home.

    Please feel free to ask me any questions

    Thanks
