Ball Trainmaster Official Rail Road Standard

Ball Trainmaster Official Rail Road Standard

SKU: VWS-1668

Here is a lovely, all original Ball Trainmaster Official Rail Road Standard from the 1960’s. The white dial is in fine condition, with large black numerals and minute markings for easy reading. There is some wear around the edge of the dial, such as at 8 and 10 o’clock. The black lance hour and minute hands and red seconds hand are in great condition. The hack stops the seconds hand when the crown is pulled out, allowing for accurate time setting.


The stainless steel case is in fine condition, with the original crown and wonderful twisted lugs. It shows some overall wear, perhaps most noticeable at the upper right lug and on the left case side. The stainless steel case back is in fine condition, with a few smaller marks and scratches.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


Inside the watch, Ball’s upgraded AS 1604B movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-10 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in March 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Ball Trainmaster series trace all the way back to a train accident in 1891 that happened due to poor timekeeping. Ball watches have ever since been highly regarded not only for great timekeeping but also their mostly no nonsense designs. This elegant piece is an example of that and it is a watch that makes a great impression on the wrist.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.


NB! Note that the buyer is responsible for any import fees their country may impose on a purchase from abroad. Ask us if you have any questions.
