Ball & Co Movement Number Listings



In this topic we will list Ball & Co. Watch Movements by the numbers...


BLE's and ORC's were originally factory produced for Ball by Howard, see Ball-Howard for pictures and more information. From advertising references I believe Ball had some of these in inventory up into the 20th century. It is my belief that Ball and Co BLE's and ORC's had original B style barrel bridges displaced by these brotherhoods and may have no serial numbers under the barrel bridge. Their corresponding dials match the style found on Ball & Co Watches from serial numbers 42001-170400. Some of these bridges were found still in inventory when Ball shut down decades ago. It seems obvious that Ball filled orders from union members with these bridges as needed. Unfortunately so did some modern collectors/dealers! It will be important for the collector to have the correct dial and movement combo! This research pretty much stops at 170400 movement number.

With decades of switching components and even movement parts, it is difficult to say anything with absolute certainty, but I have enough confidence in the mathematical probability of this information to state that:
I would definitely want to inspect the bottom of the plates for serial number matches before purchasing a watch that did not conform to my expectations.


EXPLANATION OF SYMBOLS: "DS" = Double-Sunk / "SS" = Single-Sunk / "AN" = Arabic Numerals / "SR" = Single Roller / "BSSG" = Ball's Standard Superior Grade / "ORRS" = Official RailRoad Standard / "RRWCO" = Railroad Watch Co. /

ALPHABETICAL LETTERS to assist in sorting out movements:
999A appear to be 21J with Sunray Damasceening.
999B appear to be ORRS, either Ball and Co or Private Label.
999C appear to be BRT
999D appear to be BLF
999E are Ball's Standard Railroad Watch Co (Early 17J Movements) Then later at 170101-170400.
999F are Railroad Watch Co (Early 16J movements) Then later at least until the 90101-90950 run. (Things get a little confusing there.)

A lot of conflict in these 42k reports, Did Ball really order 100 D's? The price guide values the 13k and 14k watches higher than these later runs. Could they be the victims of a lot of improvements or cannabalizing? 301-400 from factory records seem to be B's, but all the observations are Brotherhoods. Could this be the transition point when BLF and BRT's are installed with blank serial number barrel bridges at the Ball facility? Perhaps future research will make it clearer.

This seems to be the point at which factory letter designations are changing! Except for the first run of 100 there are no F's as previously known. Note that around 90751 they seem to be marked Ball Watch Co, not Ball and Co and the last group of F's seem to be all Commercial Standard's.

There appear to be 81 Brotherhoods, 42 private labels and 77 Ball and Co marked movements out of a possible 3500 that have shown up so far.

Made some more progress in the higher serial numbers up through 170K.

Private labels pretty much get phased out after the 14K run. There are 5 in the 28K range and only 2 in the 42K range so far. None have shown up after that.

Hi again guys and gals,

Latest counts from my list...


8701-8799 3 Ball & Co and 6 private labels (no brotherhoods that early)

13001-13400 10 Ball & Co 9 private labels 7 brotherhoods

14001-15000 21 Ball & Co 16 private labels 5 brotherhoods

28001-29000 9 Ball & Co 5 private labels 18 brotherhoods

42001-43000 8 Ball & Co 2 private labels 28 brotherhoods


Out of a total of 3,500 we found 51 Ball & Co 38 private labels and 58 brotherhoods


So only 147 known to me out of a total of 3,500 possibles. That is less than a 5 percent survival rate. Prior to that 42k run, it is pretty much one third Ball and Co, one third private label and one third brotherhoods.

I know of no private labels produced after that 42k run.


If anyone is willing to share any additional examples that I can add to our data base, we would appreciate it.

SEND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION OR SUGGESTIONS TO: ihc185@roadrunner.com


Happy hunting,

Bill Kapp

I have updated the list above with new observations and correlations! Any input, corrections and comments would be appreciated.

I particuarly need observations or photos of undersides of barrel bridges!

EARLY BALL & CO. INFORMATION BEGINS IN THE FIRST POST OF THIS THREAD! (Scroll to the top!)

HAPPY HUNTING
