Dracula - i've sent you an email with my contact details!
everyone else - i think i'll be settling for a U1. firstly i love mechanical watches, and from what i gather, the U1 is using a chronometer-grade ETA movement. Apparently each individual movement can be categorized into different grades and Sinn only uses the highest quality movements from ETA, hence the accuracy.
im not going to dive to such an extreme depth anyway and i'll save some money which will offset my purchase of a U-series bracelet. (if i ever get to it!)
servicing _will_ be a real ..... for the UX. not just for the replacement of a battery after 7 years but what if suay suay halfway the watch stop?
On the whole, my opinion is not to pay such a high price for a quartz movement. After all, if i wanted a quartz, i'd rather get a Casio g-shock. (i do realize the UX is a high quality ETA quartz with thermo-compensation, but quartz is quartz. haha)
So U1!!! Here i come!!
