Union Pacific Railway is undertaking the movement and restoration of one of the world's largest steam locomotives! Have a look:
It was also in the Wall Street Journal:
And why is this horologically significant? Because one of my very favorite watch brands has a model that honor's this very locomotive. A brand with a rich history in U.S. Railway lore. I am speaking of none other than Ball Watch and here is the Big Boy commemorative Limited Edition timepiece:
This model is limited to 999 pieces worldwide. It is offered on leather strap or stainless steel bracelet and like its namesake, it is no slouch in the size department at 46mm in diameter. It features Ball's famous GTLS lumination, a Swiss Mechanical date/date movement and an incredible engraving of the Big Boy on its case back.
