Ball Watch Company "Regulator #2"
Height 35", oak, ca. 1903.
Ball Watch Company is well known for their high quality railroad clocks and watches, but they did not make their own clocks. This particular model was made by Seth Thomas for Ball and is nearly identical to the Seth Thomas “Regulator #2”.
According to many at the NAWCC National 2011 show there are very few authentic examples of this model clock. Nearly all examples started out as Seth Thomas clocks that were altered to increase their value. Everyone at the show agreed that this one is authentic, making it a rare find.
The painted dial is signed “Ball Watch Co. Cleveland”, and there is a great original Ball label on the bottom inside of the case.
