    Finally snagged one!! Sinn U2 Solebox edition

    Have been on the hunt for several months for this rare gem. Ever since owning my first Sinn, this one has been on my radar. Picked up the U1, then the U2S, and now the U2 solebox edition! 10 made I believe. Very stealthy but legible even in low lights (to my youthful eyes of course)

    Hi there. I am Hikmet from Solebox.
    Congrats to the watch. But it seems, that this one is not a real one. Maybe you can make better pics especially of the dial, where you can see the solebox logo clear. And from the bezel, the luminous "dot".
    Any packaging with the watch?
    Hopefully I am wrong. I do not want to disturb your happiness.

    Welcome back to WatchUSeek Hikmet.

    I hope this is not the case but if anyone would know it would be the co-owner of Solebox, Mr. Hikmet Sugoer.

    Is your serial number 1020.0028? Another tell is if it has an ETA 2836 clone movement.

    Thank you Sir for the welcome.
    I do not want to give fake industry the possibility to sell to honest collectors fakes. This one is sadly not the real one. Michael was so nice and sent me some more pics.
    If anybody in the forum gets one offered, feel free to send me a message and I tell you the points to check if fake or not. The reason I am not posting it here is that fake industry is not sleeping.

    Wow! That absolutely sucks. I hope you can get this all straightened out and get your money back, mdhorner. And thanks to Solebox!

    As Hikmet said, this one turns out to be a dud. Bummed does not even describe my feelings. Back to the drawing boards I guess. Hope it all works out.

    Thanks again Hikmet!
