Ball Official Railroad Gold Filled circa 1960’s

SOLD

Very nice condition vintage Ball Railroad wristwatch circa 1960’s. This model bears the logo Ball Trainmaster Official Standard, designating it’s approval for use for U.S. railroad employees. Great looking thick lug and wide bezel 35 x 42mm gold filled case with screw down caseback, acrylic crystal, and great condition original gloss white dial with bold arabic figures, oversized blued steel spade hands, and red sweep seconds hand. Powered by self winding movement with sweep seconds. Recently fully serviced and detailed and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate timekeeping and operation. Offered on your choice of sporty or dressy style strap.

NOTE: This is very nice condition example of this model. It is common that the gloss white paint crazes, chips, or develop other imperfections over the years, or that the gold filled case shows considerable wear or “brassing.” The current example shows some surface scratches to the 10K GF caseback, and modest wear on high points of the case as expected, but the very good condition bezel, lugs, and body of the case show that while this watch was worn and appreciated, it was well taken care of and not abused. Lightly polished as part of our servicing of the watch.
