As promised, here are more details about the WatchUSeek tour of the Sinn Spezialuhren headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany on Friday, 23 February 2006:
Program on 23 February
We will meet at 13:45h in the ground floor lobby of the Sinn factory. The tour will officially commence at 14:00h in the Sinn meeting room with a reception and welcoming address by Lothar Schmidt, owner and CEO of Sinn. Following that, there will be a guided tour of the Sinn facilities (production, service, research and development), in one or two groups, depending on the overall number of people in attendance. The day at Sinn will conclude with a presentation by Mr. Schmidt and an open discussion, during which some food will be provided. We hope to have a representative of the Sinn R&D department present for that part, too. The meeting at Sinn will last until at least 18:00h, and those of us who are interested and have time may adjourn to a local pub/restaurant to close out the evening.
At this time, I expect that we will have a majority of German speakers, and that bilingual members will provide simultaneous translation for those unfamiliar with the language.
If you wish to participate, please register by sending an e-mail (no PMs, please) to me at [email protected] stating (1) your WUS user name, (2) your full name, (3) your e-mail address, and (4) if you intend to bring any guests, I'll need their full names, too. If you decide at a later point that you cannot participate after all, please let me know by the same method.
In the spirit of our newly established friendly cooperation, members of the German Sinn-Uhrenforum are cordially invited to participate in the event. You need not specially register as a WatchUSeek member. Registration procedure is the same as for WUS members, i.e. please send me your Sinn-Uhrenforum user name and the other information as requested above.
Travel and hotel accomodation:
The landmark Frankfurt SAS Radisson is only a couple of kilometres away from Sinn) available for those participants wishing to spend a night before or after the meeting in Frankfurt. Rate details can be found below, in the next post.
If you plan to come to the meeting by car, please note that parking near the Sinn headquarters is extremely limited, and consider using public transportation.

Purchase and service of Sinn watches on 23 February:
If you have any watches that you would like to bring in for service, or pick up from service, it would be very considerate if you could transact any service business before the tour starts. Watch purchases, if anyone is so inclined, are possible both before and after the tour. The sales room will be open until 18:00h on that day.
