Today I received in the mail a Ball 435C pocket watch with some interesting details. The watch serial #4117 is below that of published estimated serial numbers for the 435C. The Star Case appears to be original but clearly was modified to fit. There are two cutouts on the front for the lever set and a cutout on the case for a non existent adjustment screw. It would appear that the case was intended for an Elgin 571 and modified to fit the Ball.
