I confess being often drawn to the siren song of Sinn. I especially lust for the 3-6-9 sin, like this:
There's the 556A, which at 38.5mm look like minor sin, but the $980 sticker seems like major sin indeed. For the well-heeled sinners there's the 856 at 40mm and $1,610.
At any rate I've been fighting my lust by indulging in cheaper sin. Here are some:
First the Casio MTP-1342L-1B1, 42x10mm and only 38g - thanks to its aluminum case. On a purely objective basis it's more accurate than any real sin. It's also more comfortable to wear at only 38g. Why does it not assuage my lust? Perhaps because it has zero lume.
Next the Invicta 1046, 44x11mm, 69g. Also more accurate than genuine sin, with about the same heft. Respectable lume. But how can any sin be respectable?
The KHS titanium is 42x8mm and only 37g. Again more accurate and wearable, but I am in wont of a prettier font. Decent hands-lume. Poor dial-lume.
Perhaps my favorite sin substitute is the 45x14mm Torgoen T10301. The sapphire crystal alone is a large as the big sin, yet it weighs only 80g on my preferred leather strap. Great accuracy and good lume. Shown here with my home-made bezel, complete with lume dot.
So here I've confessed to some of my minor sins. Pray for me to continue to resist my lust for real sin.
