    Trainmaster M 80 (Manufacture 80)

    Has this watch come out yet?
    Any owners or additional images? Of any color variant?

    Or just general info or impressions?
    I'm sorta taken with it. Cant put my finger on it 🤔🤔

    A worthy distraction. When they finally pull me from the wreckage, they will not find a half-written text message, nor a half-eaten sandwich. All they will know is that I wore an exquisitely crafted timepiece.

    I too am very taken with it. It is just beautiful, balanced and simple. Would love to see some real life pics.

    Yeah, there's only a few small things I feel like I'd change on the watch.

    But the only thing that sort of gives me pause is the "80POWERHRS"

    Is there a meaning I don't know, or is it really 80 Power Hours? Is it a play on Horsepower? Why not 80HPR? Has that been used before? Or Manufacture 80, or just something other than POWERHRS. :)

    As per another thread, the white date wheel kills it for me.

    Doesn't bother me too much on this model. They also have it in a silver dial where the date wheel basically matches.

    Yes I would expect the preference for no date, or color matched date wheel would be the most common sticking point for this model.

    Dates generally don't bother me though. I do tend to prefer a framed aperture and a black (not necessarily color matched) wheel on a dark colored dial.

    The only other notable quibble I'd have is this bracelet, if it is the same as in the past, doesn't taper and the clasp is a basic steel friction type (though it does look particularly great when closed), also lacking any micro adjustment feature.

    I don't mind the datewheel. It looks vintage like the rest of the watch. I'm not so hung up on the 80POWERHRS wording either. If anything, I think the font is a little too modern compared to the rest of the features, which makes it stand out a little bit.

    I ran across this model a few weeks ago as well and have been searching for real life pics ever since! According to a search, Exquisite Timepieces sells them. A little too rich for my blood right now.

    Who wants to take one for the team and get us some real photos?!?
