America is a country of great innovators. In the tv
series, “Genius”, we are presented with some of the country’s most iconic inventions, and later brands, pitting the American innovators against each other. It’s the competitive spirit in America that lent the drive to the search on how to improve existing things. From the discovery of flight by the Wright brothers, to how electricity is used, as we know it now, was developed through trial and error, and to the rise of the Microsoft and Apple borne out of a heated fight between their founders, America is arguably home to the most number and most impactful innovations in the world. On this context, we can include Ball
, the watch company, as one of the country’s innovators, having succeeded in developing a standard time for the U.S. railroad to follow. The railroad would become the backbone to America’s journey to become a highly industrialized nation.
Ball is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.
