Ball Royal Blue Limited Edition
The Royal Blue commemorates the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad passenger line that ran from Washington, DC, to New York City from 1890 to 1958. It is widely considered the most luxurious train line in US history. The Ball Royal Blue timepiece is a limited edition of 233 pieces, representing the number of miles of track traversed by the Royal Blue line. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Royal Blue will be donated by Ball Watch Co. to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum.
The first 25 purchasers of the Royal Blue will receive a complimentary signed copy of the 198 page book, Royal Blue Line, by Herbert H. Harwood, Jr., published by Johns Hopkins Press.
