    Did they give you an explanation for why it is reputedly impossible? In my case they simply took the hands of an EZM4 and made no fuss about it at all. Maybe you should ask them again. Perhaps it's depending on the particular service person in charge.

    Excellent collection LARS

    But seriously, don't you think that 10 watches are a little too many? After all, you only have 2 wrists, right?

    I tell you what, I would be most happy to take your Sinn 142 from you without charge :-D :-D :-D

    Cheers

    They did not give an explanation at all, but simply said that it's not possible. So either they ran out of or are short on luminous chrono hands for the 5100, or it really depends on the service person in charge.

    I think that it depends very much what person one is talking to ... as Sinn does not really have a "custom watch policy" (like Bill yao does, for example), customizing a watch depends to some extent on goodwill, and some previous research by the customer ... the more concrete you are in your question ("would the hands of model xxx fit on model yyy?"), the higher the chances for a positive response.

    I have enquired about an unusual change of hands once in poerson, and had the lady in the service department scuttle bacjk three times to confer with her colleagues in the backroom before I got the definitive answer ... I imagine if I had asked by mail or phone, the result might have been different.
    Cheers,

    Hi,

    a hard job photographing such a lot of watches at once. Here a quick shot of mine:



    So here we have:
    3 stopwatches, one with rattrapante
    a 155
    a 102 with Lemania 7733
    a 156
    a 356 with handwind Valjoux 7760 from the first 500 made for Japan
    a 903 from 1996, one of 200
    a 756 from the first series, case made by Damasko
    a braille watch, glas can be opened to feel the time
    and a Chronosport 31 from Helmut Sinn


    Thanks for watching,
    Andi
