    Re: Please Read: Plans for a WUS Tour of the Sinn Factory ca. February 2007

    Hi -

    Either is fine with me.

    Logistically, the first is probably the superior of the two, as anyone travelling from outside the Rhein-Main area will find it easier to arrive early and get back in the evening, as opposed to afternoon and then evening, since that may well entail an overnight stay and the ensuing expenses.

    Of course, we can actually plan both: an entire day of watch stuff. After Sinn, if people are so inclined, we might visit, for instance, Windecker in Oberursel for a look at his new Manufaktur and then retire to the Oberursel Altbrauhaus for a heaty evening meal and consumption of either alcoholic or non-acoholic beverages. Or alternatively we could hook up with one of the other watchmakers in the area: L'Horologie in Bad Soden, for instance, or
    perhaps someone else can come up with an alternative?

    If we decide to do Windecker, I'd need some notice ASAP so that I can arrange it with him...

    I talked to Sinn today. One of the options we discussed was to have the visit on a Friday, starting at about 10 a.m. and lasting till about mid-afternoon.

    Sinn have promised to be in touch during the next two weeks with a firm date.

    I'll keep you updated.
    Cheers,

    Martin ("Crusader")

    Actually I agree with the 10am till mid afternoon schedule. Makes sense to beat the rsuh hour congestion and we all can sleep in a little later :-D

    Merry X'mas everyone, especially to Tim, Martin and Ernie. santasmile

    Sounds good, also the afternoon / evening program. I think my 203 really would like to visit her old home.
    I'll have to request a day off - which should hopefully be no problem - and would like to bring a colleague of mine.

    Cheers, Ralf

    Is anyone going from the UK?

    Martin,

    I am very interested in the Sinn trip. Would it be suitable for a non-german speaker? What would be the best airport to use? Is anyone else staying overnight in a nearby hotel?

    Does anyone know the best flight/hotel deals from London?

    Any help or advice very gratefully received

    Cheers,
    Alan

    Cheers,
    It depends on the date if I can come. Friday the 9th would be good, since that's the last day of my holidays, after that I don't have my scedule yet.
    If I go, I'll most likely spend a night. If the visit starts at 10:00, I'll go the day before, since I hate an early rise. I don't have a suggestion for a hotel, but if you've found one, please let me know, and I'll try to book that too. I seem to remember that the Hilton is pretty nice, but that was when my boss paid . Maybe we can have dinner or drinks, and discuss watches, planes and whatever we can think off.
    The obvious choice for an airport is Frankfurt am Main (or Flughafen Rhein-Main as it's officially called). It's not very close to the city, but has excellent connections to it.
    Personally I'll probably come by train, but I haven't decided yet.
    Oh, and I think you'll find that most Germans speak English pretty well, but I'll be happy to be your translator if needed.

    Alan, as for language I am sure that we will manage a bilingual tour with on-the-spot translation.

    As for Hotels, Sinn will likely make their company rate available in a nearby hotel (sorry, don't know offhand which).

    Closest Airport is FRA, as Ron said.
    Cheers,

    Martin ("Crusader")

    Thumbs Up Re: Is anyone going from the UK?

    Thanks for the info guys - this is all sounding very promising. I look forward to hearing the actual date and details of booking into the hotel.

    Cheers,
    Alan
