    Somewhere, here, there is a Ball. I know I have at least one Ball, but I have difficulty keeping track of it. ;) Unlike Fritz, I don’t have a Ball Standard wall clock. But I do have two Seth Thomas World models, the one shown having done service on the CPR. Aha! I found my Ball. This is a Ball grade 999 ( Hamilton) 16-size, 21 jewel model based on the Hamilton 992, in a Ball 20th Century case with the patented Ball safety bow. Not the correct movement for this case, as the Ball 20th Century model would have 23-jewels, and based on the Hamilton 950. Here it is, pictured with my one Seth Thomas.

    Truth to tell. Two of us exhibit our railroad grade pocket watches at the largest model train show in Canada, and one of the largest in North America. What you see is our 83 watches arrayed for sorting and organizing for the exhibit. There are Balls (2), Elgin’s, Hampden (and Duebers), Illinois, Hamilton (the preponderance being Hamilton’s), Waltham’s, E. Howard (1), Keystone Howards (a dozen or so), and two grade CCR Swiss Louis Brandts (Omega). To these, we add a dozen or so tuning fork (Accutron) RR models, one Hamilton 505 (Electric), one Rodania, and one Bulova. During the exhibit, these will all be running and on time. We also exhibit two Seth a Thomas World clocks in our exhibit. This event is usually attended by 15 to 16 thousand people over two days. We’ll talk ourselves hoarse. To quote a great man, “good times” ;) !

    These have the well-respected Seiko NH35A, but somehow his was losing 50s/day... It appears I now have it at +/- 1 sec/day on my own wrist.

    Lemania Tg195 Swedish artillery issue on my ‘right’ wrist needs little explanation:

    Today started out as a BLRO day with the Rolex 16710 GMT Master II. Then back to Old Faithful.
