Iím writing this post because I want to find out as much as I can about the Ball Trainmaster 60 Seconds Watch Model: NM1058D-S3J-WH - White Dial - SS Bracelet. Iíve tried to find out when it was made but it appears to just have gone out of production not too long ago and there are still new ones floating around but not too many. I can only find one guy on ebay selling the watch from Spain and he has some negative remarks which makes me leary of him as a seller. Most places Iíve checked no longer carry this watch so it may take awhile for me to find one but I want to find out more about this watch before making a purchase.
The watch itself has everything that I wanted in a daily wear watch, Day & Date, a white dial for easy viewing in low light and a Montgomery style watch dial that shows the minutes. On top of that it has tritium gas tubes that makes it easier to read low light and at night. The watch specs says that the watch is 41mm in size but it isnít always clear where these measurements are made, on the case or does this include the crown? Many times they will let you know.
So my question to any of you who actually own this watch is this; how easy is it to see the small the numbers that show the minutes? And most importantly how do you like the watch? Any other relevant information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
I joined a number of years ago (I forgot really) and havenít been active in any watch forum because of my finances and health reasons. Lately I came across a small but not insignificant inheritance and decided to splurge and a Ball watch or two. This is why Iím going to become more active in the forums.
I just bought, but have not received yet, a Ball Trainmaster 21st Century Watch model NM2058D-LJ-BK. Itís a limited edition of 250 pieces.
Lastly, anyone who has input into these watches, even if you donít own them, would be welcome by me. To me it is the holy grail of watches just because of the highly functional dail. I have watches where you canít even read the day and date without a magnifying glass or I should say, I canít read them without a magnifying glass. If this watch works out for me, it will be the daily wearer I use for a long, long time. Cheers!
