“Accuracy under adverse conditions” …and a whole lot more.


The Trainmaster Racer


BALL Watch has been keeping accurate time since 1891. 

The railroad is an American icon. And after a horrific train crash in Ohio in 1891, Webb C. Ball stepped up and created “RR” – Railroad Time. Railroad employees had to have their watches standardized in order to ensure accuracy, even under adverse conditions.

Railroads helped settle America and Ball continues that tradition by embodying the founding spirit of the brand. That commitment is never compromised and is upheld in Ball’s original details, such as the watch dial that faithfully follows his design guidelines for the standard railway watch.  Every detail, from the shape of the hands to the style of the numerals, was laid down by the founder in his quest for accuracy in timekeeping.

A classical railroad heritage, the “Trainmaster” timepieces are made in the absolute respect for the values of precision, reliability and tradition of the BALL legacy and feature a sapphire crystal case back.


The Trainmaster Racer is a substantial watch, with a month, day and date complication.

The dial contains plenty of information, but never overwhelms the wearer. The hands are elegant, and at a case thickness of 15mm, feels substantial but not overly so.
