    upcoming models...

    So we know about the night train, and have seen pics. I saw some models in the "prou" thread that must be new as well.

    Any info? Any more pics?

    Wink Re: upcoming models...

    I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing more about the Trainmaster Cannonball Chronograph...what a beautiful and interesting piece! I'm especially digging the white dial version, which is unusual for me, as I'm more of a black dial guy.

    Now if I could just find a big ol' sack of cash lyin' around, I could buy a few of these exciting upcoming Balls(hey, a guy can dream, can't he? )....

    Take care,
    Geoff

    I'm still curious as to why they didn't coat the crown on the Night Train? Other than that it's a very attractive watch.

    I have a suspicion it might be exaggerated by the photographs. I have a Breitling Aerospace (used to have the word 'Avantage' appended to the name too) which is brushed titanium with a SS crown. The different crown looks crap in reasonably close up photographs but on the wrist you'd actually have to be looking for it to pick it.

    I'd like to see a Night Train in the flesh (or on my flesh, better still!) before deciding one way or the other.

    This might be a stupid question, but are the hour indices lumed or are there tubes on them?(fireman night train)

    Re: upcoming models...

    I must admit I am seriously looking at the Ball Engineer Master II Diver TMT. This would be the perfect watch for snowmobiling as it has the hydrocarbon oils like the Sinns do and a nice thermometer on the dial. The tritium tubes seal the deal. Wearing this on my snowmobile glove day and night would be the cat's, you know what.

    I have a question though, does anyone know if this model too has the T100 tritium tubes?

    Thanks in advance.

    If the watch in the picture posted above is any indicator, it will not have T100 tubes. It reads "T25" on the dial, rather than a simple "T."
