BALL Watch will bring watch collectors and railroad enthusiasts together on Friday, September 23 at the B&O Museum in Baltimore, Maryland to unveil the new Royal Blue Limited Edition watch (233 pieces worldwide) commemorating the Royal Blue Line, once the finest daylight train service in the world offering premier passenger service between Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and New York City.

Trainmaster Royal Blue SW220-1 COSC

Jeffrey Hess, CEO, BALL Watch USA, stated. “It is highly appropriate for BALL Watch to do this. The B & O Museum, a Smithsonian affiliate, hosts a collection of historic BALL timepieces, and founder Webster Ball was a pioneer in rationalizing timekeeping for American railroads. Today we honor him and the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad with this new timepiece.”

A portion of the Royal Blue’s sales will support the B&O Museum, according to Courtney B. Wilson, Executive Director. "The partnership between Ball Watch USA and the Museum bring the rich history of railroad time-keeping into the 21st century through America's most historic railroad, the B&O."

The BALL Trainmaster B & O Royal Blue is a high-quality Swiss-made timepiece built on the respected SW220-1 COSC automatic mechanical movement, providing accuracy under adverse conditions such as those encountered by railroaders in the 1800s and 1900s. The Royal Blue is designed to meet the Official Railroad Standards set by Webster C. Ball in 1891, while offering a stylish and affordable timepiece to railroad buffs and watch lovers alike.
