    Trainmaster legend, old style. I am liking it, simple stick markers for hours and case size of 38mm reminds me of men's watches from years past.

    Wow! Can share the dimensions of the strap so that I see if it works on mine?

    It is just a 20mm rubber strap... you can Google “zealande strap” to find out more. My red label has a 20mm lug so they clicked...



    Having said that, straight spring bars won’t work... u need a curved one like the one in the pic.

    This curved one is from Ball watch... I am not sure if they sell separately.

    Can I know the case diameter too? This is because I was the strap integrating nicely into the watch, hence I think the case diameter would matter, especially the curvature

    Re: On The Ball What Are You Wearing Today?

    Here is one of my two first generation Ball Fireman--this one is very special in that none were actually sold to the general public as far as I understand, and became a "holy grail" in the true sense of the word (in horology) as many thought it never actually existed, despite being teased by a picture of it shown in the 2007-8 catalog, around the time the first generation was seeing its last days of production. The first generation came in 3 sizes, a women's version, and two men's versions--a 40mm and a 43mm. Dial colors were either black or silver (which Ball often calls "white"), and accents (the numerals and dots), were blue, yellow and orange on the black dials, and blue, black and (supposedly) orange on the silver dials. In reality, virtually none of the silver/orange dials were actually sold to the public.

    Another odd historical fact is that a handful of the first generation were given a three-color tritium schema (the usual was two; all green except orange at 12)--these were only in the earliest production versions, sometimes seen in the black dial and orange or yellow accents--this silver/orange version also has the three color tritium. My other first gen Fireman, black and yellow, with three colors, is 40mm, which fits me better, but as there is really only about this one watch in "the wild" in the silver/orange dial set up, I wear it anyway (of course!), even though it is 43mm. Someday I will do another review of the first generation Ball Fireman, as I have owned all dial versions (I did an earlier review here in one of the Topper watch review contests, several years ago).
