The history of Ball Watch watches

Webster Clay Ball was born in Fredericktown, Ohio on October 6, 1847. The system which he developed standardised time throughout the railways in America. He was called to arrange fortnightly check on rail workers watches to avoid crashes after The Kipton Disaster in 1891. Engineers on both trains were killed as were nine clerks.

Today, the designs of the Ball watches continue in the tradition of the railways. All the details of the watch take inspiration from Ball’s original designs; the shape of the hands to the style of the numerals. The designers manage to mix modern designs with the more traditional aspects as the Ball watches.

The mission of the brand is for individuals to be individuals.

The Engineer II comes with green berets or the phases of the moon. Engineer III has a sleek design and comes in a range of colours. Engineer M comes in various sizes. Engineer II has three models; Aviator, Skindiver and Diver. The Engineer Hydrocarbon has special patented features; triple folding buckle, crown protection, the Amortiser® and the SpringLOCK®. Other collections include the Trainmaster, Conductor and Fireman.

Ball Watch maintenance and care tips

Setting the time.

If you need to change the time on your watch, it is advised to avoid manually doing so during the times of 10pm and 2am. This could interfere with the setting of your watch as this is when the date is automatically due to change.

Ball Watch winding.

It is also advised that you do not deliberately shake a self-winding watch to wind it. This movement will be ineffective and could potentially damage your watch.

Ball Watch recommends for maximum performance of your timepiece that users wind their watches before they reach the end of their power reserve.

If your mechanical watches have manual winding – it may need to be wound daily. This process will give your watch enough sufficient power to function correctly. If you are manually winding your watch, you must do this by turning the crown clockwise as far as it will go. This must be done gently; therefore, it is advised not to force it when it reaches this point. By putting too much pressure on your timepiece, you may be damaging the movement. At Repairs By Post, we provide Ball Watch watch repair which will have your watch back up and running in no time at all.

If you are the owner of a self-winding mechanical watch, it will have an additional mechanism which will allow it to be automatically wound through the natural movement of the wrist.

If your watch has stopped or not worn for several days, this may mean it must be rewound using the crown. This will ensure the watch continues to function during periods of low activity (e.g. when sleeping).

It is advised that 20 turns of the crown are essential to provide your watch with plenty of energy. Keep in mind that the power reserve of a self-winding mechanical watch can vary depending on the movement of its wearer’s wrist.

HOW LONG DOES A Ball Watch BATTERY LAST

The battery life of a Ball Watch watch is 2.5 years. This is the average battery life of most watch brands typically between 2 - 5 years. This is for a new watch and variable depending on the model, amount of energy required by its various functions and what functions you use. It can also depend on how-long your watch was running before you purchased it. After your Ball Watch battery is replaced you should expect a lifespan of about 2 years from the replacement battery, before it dies again.

The great thing about this brand is that there are no guessing games when it comes to battery life. Ball Watch watches have a battery EOL indicator which stands for “End of Life”. This means that when the second hand begins to jump in four-second intervals, it is time for your watch to be sent away for watch maintenance. At Repairs By Post, we provide Ball Watch battery replacement.

Ball Watch WATCH DAMAGE

Timepieces are fragile pieces of jewellery which can be damaged if they are exposed to extreme conditions. If your watch undergoes violent impact, Repairs By Post recommend that your watch is checked by a member of our watch specialist team.

Watches can also be sensitive to thermal impacts; therefore it is advised that when wearing your Ball Watch watch that you avoid exposing your watch to extreme temperatures that are above 60°C or below 0°C.

If your watch is exposed to a sudden change in temperature, for example, a sauna or diving into cold water after exposure to the sun, it could damage the movement of your watch.

WATER RESISTANCE FOR Ball Watch WATCHES

Water resistance is added to protect your watch. However, it may wear off over time; therefore, you should always be careful with your water-resistant timepiece. To keep your watch safe in the water, DO NOT use pushers while you still emerge in water.

If you watch is certified as water resistant, to avoid water penetration that could result in a break in the mechanics of your watch, it is essential that you do not use pushers when the watch is in contact with water.

Ball Watch WATCH STRAPS REPLACEMENT

At Repairs By Post, we can replace the straps of multiple watch brands including Ball Watch watch straps. Leather watch straps can be maintained by avoiding contact with water or sweat.

Ball Watch BATTERY REPLACEMENT

Once you watch reaches the time to have its battery replaced, it is telling you that it needs to be sent away for watch repair. Your watch should be sent for maintenance as soon as possible as it will avoid the risk of any leakage. This could damage the movement of your watch, and that is why we recommend not leaving a completely discharged battery in your watch.
