    Is Ball Legend NM2030D just an older Trainmaster Legend? Good watch?

    Not listed on Ball's site,and google doesn't help much at all. Got a great deal on the NM2030D, if it's a great watch.


    Is it a great watch? Seems like it will go with almost anything.


    Is the Legend kinda Ball's competitor to the Omega Aqua Terra?


    I'm pretty much a jeans/khakis with polos/button downs sort of guy. Not going to be wearing a suit much. Not going to be wearing it with a t shirt & ........s. Born a preppy, likely die a preppy. Thanks.


    edit: getting the black dial if I pull trigger

    $588.99 new on Amazon

    And definitely not a competitor for an Aqua Terra in any way shape or form.

    Well, do you know if it's just the older version of the Trainmaster Legend?


    And I know it's not competitive with the Aqua Terra. I wanted to know if it is what Ball has to offer in the same niche as the Aqua Terra.

    Ball make a myriad of watches so who knows, one has a closed back the other an exhibition back, different bracelets but similar cases.

    The red label chronometer NM2026C-SCJ-BK is slightly similar to an Aqua Terra with the vertical striped dial

    The original Legend came out in 2012 and looked very similar--it had the same basic dial pattern, but each of the indices had the kind that are only used on the four quarter hour marks on the new version, and the old version also had tritium tubes on all hours. The current Legend is a thus a slightly cheaper presentation of the original watch, discontinued in about 2014--the new version is a very nice watch at a very nice price--the movement is accurate, the case workmanship of a very high standard, and of course it has tritium tube illumination, though perhaps the least of all Ball watches. Other companies would sell a similarly constructed watch for two or three times this price--and they wouldn't necessarily be any more accurate, or better looking. Because of Ball's better value for the buck ratio, I would buy any number of Ball watches well before I spent a bunch more money just to get an Aqua Terra.
