It was his timepieces that set the standard for railroads, and it was his system that helped to establish accuracy and uniformity in timekeeping. Today, Ball Timepieces are one of the most respected and established brands in the world. Despite changes in appearance from Webb C. Ball's original design, the founding "Industrial Function" spirit of the company has never once been compromised.
