This Myron spoke out to me today from the watch drawer and I think I heard a grumble from the rest of them when I closed the drawer.

Hey Ben - very nice watch. I love pocket watches but don't know that much about the nuances. What makes the Ball models so special?

Also - out of technical curiosity, I see the regulator is set to full slow. Is there a rule of thumb about when to use timing washers, etc.?

C.Webb Ball wrote the railroad standard, defining what all a watch used for railroad use needs to be. He contracted out the mamufacture of the watches to the various manufacturers.
