Product Description

You are bidding on a vintage Ball Official RR Standard railroad-approved wrist watch, Swiss made, probably ca. early 1960s.  This watch features a yellow gold-filled screwback case, a 21-jewel chronometer-grade manual-wind movement, and a white dial with black numerals.  The case is in very good condition, showing signs of occasional wear.  The movement runs and keeps excellent time (Note: the hack lever is missing so the second hand does not stop when the crown is pulled out into the setting position).  The dial is in excellent original condition.  Overall, a very presentable watch that is ready to wear in style or present as a wonderful gift to a person who appreciates fine timepieces.  This watch measures 34.5mm diameter (without crown).  Fitted with a leather strap.  This is a great crossover collectible of interest to both watch collectors and railroad buffs.  You can own this very high grade, attractive, ready-to-wear vintage watch that meets all the criteria for railroad service, for $499.99/obo.  If you have questions about this watch or about my watch and clock repair services, please feel free to contact me.
