The screwdown crown at 3 is engraved with Ball's “RR” logo. Making this a good 30m water resistant, more than enough for everyday wear.
The Trainmaster Standard Time Chronometer has a simple and classic dial that speaks class. The white enamel dial is a beautiful pure white, with beautiful snailing done on the sub-second dial at the bottom. At the tip of the arabic indexes are each with an embedded tritium tube.

One of the unique aspects of the Ball watches are their use of tritium gas tubes. The tubes have tritium gas inside which is radioactive, emitting electrons which react with a phosphor layer that coats the inside of the tube. The result is a constant emission of light. No more charging them by external light sources like conventional SuperLuminova. The Ball Trainmaster uses 14 X T-25 tubes, one per hour marker and one per hand. Hours 1 – 11 and hands all glow green, while 12 is in orange/red for easy identification in the dark.
The Trainmaster Standard Time Chronometer comes with a genuine calf leather strap with Ball signed tang buckle.
The Ball Trainmaster Standard Time Chronometer Ref. NM3888D-LL1CJ-WH is certainly for someone who is looking for a dress watch which is tough enough for everyday use. The vintage design cues on the dial and case coupled with the boxed sapphire crystal gives the watch the vintage charm most watch collectors will be familiar with. With superb luminosity and well finished case and construction this watch rates highly in value for money.
