Pool Ball Manufacturer - 06-23-2020, 06:25 PM

I decided to post this thread here because it will get more exposure here than in any other place.

I have a need to know the exact name and location of the company that manufactures the American Heritage "Renaissance" pool ball. I reached out to American Heritage, but they were reluctant to help and because I respect their need for anonymity, I simply withdrew. Hopefully, there will be members here who will have access to the information I require and will be willing to share.

Thank you.

This is a guess but based on the price they're asking they probably have Aramith make them. Look a lot like Centennials. Could be Cyclop but i'm leaning towards Aramith.

Garczar,

Thank you for that, but I need "line and verse."

These balls shine and sound like the newer high-tekky balls and they are tinted in the light areas to look like Centennials, but of course, they have double darts. The fields are faux ivory looking and the "sticks" are almost white around the numbers. The colors are vivid, a little bit like the Cylop Ares balls, but the light areas and the "sticks" on Ares balls are nearly a true white. In other words, they don't match either the Centennial or the Ares.

Yes, I need the Company Name and contact information if you can find it. I appreciate the effort.

Wonder if they're really better then a price point set of Aramith?

Or just more eye candy, like a Rolex President Watch?

But I have to assume by your comment that you know absolutely jack squat about watches... The fit, finish, quality of materials, sale and resale value of a Rolex Day-Date (President) is top shelf all around and is way more than "eye candy"

That's literally one of the worst analogies I've ever read.

A man could live a winner's life if he ran the opposite way from whichever way the cowboy suggests.

Always.


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction
Of the plot that edifies all our instructions
It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

Even in the watch world there’re people who love to hate Rolex.

Yes a Timex will tell you the time and a Camry will get you to the store but that Toyota won’t get you there like a Ferrari.

Source: I own several Rolex’s, Omega, Marathon, Seiko’s AND Timex. I’m not a brand snob but I do know the differences.

For Watch Aficionados...... - 06-23-2020, 09:49 PM

The standard for quality in Swiss watches has been for decades & remains so today, C.O.S.C. certification.
Rolex dominates the list with more certifications issued than any other brand. Omega is second, Breitling
is 3rd, followed by other brands such as MIDO, Tissot, Tag Heuer, etc. But performance wise, all C.O.S.C.
certified watches perform alike up until Omega proposed setting a new higher gold standard for the most
elite performers. So a new category was created by the Swiss Federal Institute of Methology called Master
Chronometer Certification. Currently Omega is the only watch manufacturer to obtain this certification but
Rolex adopted its own stricter C.O.S.C. version referred to as Superlative Chronometer....just a little trivia.

I was reading all of these response on watches and wondering if some here, like me, have had a collectors interest in watches similar to pool cues. I have found that an interest in fine watch making is similar to the interest in fine pool cues. Both seem to bring out a great appreciation for the finest workmanship, performance, appearance, design, etc. owning something that someone else took great pride in creating has an appeal all its own and fine cues and watches seem to match up in these areas. I am not a serious watch collector- but have been involved in that field as well to some degree.

Why is this so pressing? Just buy brand name balls and be done with it. Unless someone at that outfit tells you i doubt you're going to find out. Kinda like the Dynamic pool tables sold in Germany. They're made in China but they won't disclose the maker. Its in their contract not to do so.

Well the cowboy might have derailed the thread but I like his analogy. 20 years ago I received a two tone GMT Master ll for my birthday. Yes indeed it's eye candy. Because with all that fit and finish talk nobody mentioned how well a Rolex keeps time.

I have a Tag that's at least 35 years old and runs within seconds over a year. It cost one tenth the amount of the Rolex. Also have a Lumi Nox at half the price of the Tag. It's almost as good. And way better than the GMT at keeping time. But the eye candy does retain the value, no doubt about that.
