    Is Ball Watch going to release any manual winding watches?

    I know that Ball Watch has a long history of pocket watches for the railroad, but I was just curious if the new Ball Watch was going to release some manual winds. Currently that is what I am most interested in. Thank you for any info.

    The only one available right now is a pocket watch that comes with the purchase of the Trainmaster Heritage. Not sure what is in the works, but I hope that someday Ball will make a full size pocket watch, as I am sure it would sell a bunch, especially for those that cannot find a vintage one...

    That would be cool if they made pocket watch. It would also be cool to come out with a watch based upon the dial of the vintage pocket watches and use the Unitas 6497/8. Stowa has done it with the Marine Original.

    Thank you for the reply.

    The existing pocket watch does use a Unitas movement, unsure of which model, but it is used in the Panerai watches...

    The Heritage is based on a pocket watch design. Has a huge crown also. Enamel white dial, cosc and BofLE on dial. Even the rotor has Webb c. Ball patend circular damaskeening.

    Very nice watch. I was just curious if Ball had any plans for a manual winding wristwatch down the road since manual winds are part of the Ball DNA.

    Are there any pics of the Heritage floating around we can take a gander at? Sounds like a very cool piece...

    That is a beauty. Put a manual winding movement with no date and it would be a very sweet watch for me.

    For pocket watch enthusiasts I would think that a pocket watch that offered tritium illumination would be a first.
