Webb C. Ball was summoned to testify when there was a collision between trains at Kipton, Ohio in 1891. His intervention, which included establishing strict guidelines for manufacturing timepieces with resistance to magnetism and reliable timekeeping in 5 positions, became the driving force behind standardizing the watch industry worldwide. (When a train arrived precisely on time, trainmasters would say "That guy's 'on the Ball" and an American idiom was born).
