my 89-year-old father-in-law gifted me his father's watch, and i just had it returned from servicing:
Ball Railroad pocket watch - marked inside: "Ball Watch Co. Cleveland, O, 17 Jewels Adjusted 5 positions, Pat. Nov 17.96, Trademark Official Standard, B240348"
Also received a nice 14K fob, and two 14K chains, one for vest, another for belt and vest!
The watch was not running when it was given to me, but a local jeweler has a horologist who works on these watches. The watch needed a new mainspring, then was cleaned up. About 18 winds to fully wound with a little over 24-hour reserve. Keeps great time!
