On the Wrist: Ball Watch Engineer II Green Berets

The Ball Watch Company has an interesting history. It was born from the need for accurate timing during the expansion of the American railroad system after a fatal train accident in Kipton, Ohio in 1891. A train conductor’s watch had stopped for four minutes then restarted without him knowing, which resulting in the train being late and causing a head-on collision.

This is actually where the phrase “Get on the Ball” originated. read more
