Ball Fireman Storm Chaser Pro Chronograph 42mm

The Ball Fireman Storm Chaser Pro Watch is a robust timepiece with a clear, easy to read dial. Equipped with an automatic Swiss chronograph movement, it is a precision watch with all the practical detailing of this famous watchmaking brand. In terms of aesthetics, the Fireman Storm Chaser Pro has a clean, functional look. It has a telemeter scale that is useful to determine distance based on time. This is essential for storm chasers to measure the elapsed time between a flash of lightning and the sound of thunder. The dial has 15 micro gas tubes on the hands and dial which will glow brightly in the dark for up to 25 years without recharging. A minute track which enhances the legibility of the dial even further. The hour and minute hands are straight with open sections so that the dial is not obscured. The sweep seconds hand is also straight with the Ball insignia at the center. The watch is anti-magnetic and shock resistant.

One of the standout features of Ball watches is their use of tritium gas tubes, which provide a constant and reliable source of illumination in low light conditions. This technology was first used by Ball watches in the late 1800s and continues to be a defining feature of the brand today.

Watches by Ball

Ball watches have a fascinating history intertwined with the American railroad. In the late 1800s, train accidents were an all too common occurrence due to inconsistent timekeeping across different railroads. This led to Webb C. Ball, a Cleveland jeweler and watchmaker, being appointed as the Chief Time Inspector for the railroad industry.
Ball was tasked with establishing strict timekeeping standards across all railroads to ensure the safety of passengers and employees. He introduced a set of guidelines known as "The Ball Standard" which included the use of highly accurate and reliable watches. The Ball Standard required watches to be accurate to within 30 seconds per week and have a second hand, a requirement that was not common at the time.
Ball collaborated with various watch companies to produce timepieces that met his standards, including Hamilton Watch Company and Waltham Watch Company. These watches became known as "Ball Watches" and were highly sought after by railroad personnel and collectors alike. The watches were also used by other industries that required precise timekeeping, such as aviation and military.
Today, Ball Watch Company continues to produce high-quality timepieces that pay homage to their rich history with the American railroad. The company's watches are still known for their accuracy and reliability, making them a popular choice for those who require precise timekeeping in their professions or hobbies.
