Ball Watch, Trainmaster One Hundred Twenty
I admit, the Ball Watch's 19th Century American railroad brand can be a bore. After all, I am buying a watch, not a steam engine. But this rebooted Swiss brand, retailed online via Tourneau, does a timely job with entry-level luxe pieces. In particular, I liked the Trainmaster One Hundred Twenty.
The unit boasts a surprisingly masculine reddish rose gold case and glow-in-the-dark hour and minute hands that make it super easy to read the time at night. Factor in the nothing-to-be-ashamed-of automatic movement and, overall, this pieces takes jeans and a jacket and turns it into a make-a-statement outfit.
