As an individual with the zeal for diving sports and a fanatic of the magnificent flag colors, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Master Chronometer completes me. It’s so manly that no man out there should hesitate to it pick up anytime, any day.
Its exquisite red, blue and white decorations on its case, those luminous hands and dial markers, clever markings on the rubber band makes this “Deep Black” men watch a unique and indispensable timepiece.
Even though the black ceramic case has a diameter of 45.5 mm, I found it extremely comfortable on my wrist the first day I wore it. The watch’s irresistible ceramic bezel crafted with OMEGA LiquidMetal diving scale provides a beautiful glimpse of the New Zealand flag colors. It happened so quickly and within first ten minutes of diving, my patriotism was a notch higher. Underwater, it was just awesome.
Furthermore, an Emirates Team New Zealand logo in red rubber dominates its solid case back. Additional Challenger 35th America’s Cup writing engraved on it makes this watch ooze a global feel the moment you strap it.
Other features include a sapphire crystal, classy18K gold indexes on the dial and a screw-in crown. By the way, you can dive up-to 600M before the watch gives in. Keep in mind that no matter the conditions during these kinds of expeditions, you won’t struggle to check the time because Omega Seamaster Planet’s MT ring has a flattering day or night display. Further steel is brought in by the 60 hours power reserve complemented by an automatic, caliber OMEGA 8906 movement just in case of an emergency.

I won’t forget the incomparable diving experience while donning this time piece. 200M under, you will notice how its unidirectional rotating bezel feels extremely smooth, making operations a breeze, this was definitely another big plus.

Nothing is more attractive than the Ball’s Trainmaster Eternity NM2080D-LJ-SL model. Other than the unique feel and elegance, this is just but another remarkable addition to an already wide Trainmaster collection.
Marvelously styled, the Trainmaster Eternity NM2080D-LJ-SL model’s size, the simple polished stainless steel case, the anti-reflective sapphire crystal and its exquisitely decorated face will stand out in a crowd. Additionally, its luminous markers and dauphine-shaped hands are great for night visibility.
The Trainmaster Eternity is not an entirely new watch but an upgraded replica of Ball Trainmaster 120 version. It is one of the thinnest automatic Swiss-made watches with a slim bezel which makes it appear larger. Additionally, it can be paired with either a genuine crocodile leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet that comfortably and handsomely fits my wrist.
This watch has a diameter of 39.5mm, thickness of 11.8 mm, screw-down crown, transparent case back, and a silver or anthracite-textured dial which gives it an antique or vintage feel. Like most Ball watches, it contains tritium gas tubes which aids in legibility at all times of the day. It’s 30 meters water resistant and 5000G’s shock resistance can also enable me to work, play, and live in areas with adverse conditions.
The Trainmaster Eternity can almost be considered a complete calendar watch, as its functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date and day. The Trainmaster’s sophistication is clearly shown on the face. As the watch’s second hand ticks, the Ball Watch Co. brand shows, revealing a level of pristine detail and class like no other watch.

Ball Watch Company has manufactured an array of some of the most precise and reliable mechanical watches. The brand, design, and functionality of the NM2080 model is based on Ball network founder, Webster Clay Ball.
Prior to the advent of rail works, different countries had diverse time zones hence the need to come up with a standard time for the purpose of arrival and departures train time schedules.
The standard time was separated into four different time zones in the region and since then it was adopted and is still used as the formal time scheme.
