Hi everybody, I've been lurking here for a while, and finally decided to create an account.
Due to a large extent to some of the reviews and comments here, I've been wanting to pick up a Ball for a while. I was looking at a Trainmaster Legend at Jomashop, then I saw a picture of a Trainmaster Streamliner, which I thought looked much nicer. I went off in search of a low price on a new or gently used example, and found a brand new one for only $50 more than the Legend. It arrived yesterday.
I'm really impressed with this watch so far. It feels very substantial and looks great; IMO the pictures don't do it justice. Any misgivings that I had about spending the money disappeared the instant that I took it out of the box.
Unfortunately I don't have a screwdriver that fits the link screws, so I haven't been able to size it for my wrist yet.
