    Trainmaster 60 Second Lady - 30m or 50m?

    The water resistance for this watch is stated as 30m on the new Ball site but 50m on the Ball USA site. Which one is correct?

    I am looking at the caseback now, and as BrianS stated, it is indeed marked as 30 meters.

    Interesting.. the Ball Watch Guide for 2007 says all Trainmaster Series watches are 50M...

    Just out of curosity, would it matter? Would you really dive past 90 feet in this timepiece?

    I think the point is that technical consistency in various documents is important and necessary. I know that is especially true in my line of work.

    I would go with what the caseback engraving says(which Brian saw in a pic, and Obie saw on Mrs Obie's watch), over what the 07 Watch Guide indicates(most likely a typo)...

    I decided to check my Ball 2007 Watch Guide pamphlet...and the Trainmaster 60 Seconds Men's/Lady's is listed as having 30m water resistance.

    Take care,

    Hi Steve,

    I didn't mean to correct you or anything.

    I thought you might have gotten your info off one of the websites, so I thought I'd check it against the pamphlet that Ball USA mailed me.
    Take care,
    Geoff

    Hey, no problem Geoff... in the pamphlet, they normally list the WR rating at the top of each collection as it applies to all within. On the 60 second model, they added the 30m annotation in the listing itself... like I said, shoulda had my glasses on...
