    12 hour bezel on U1

    After saving money for a SBDX017 or a Tudor Pelagos, I ended up instead with a Sinn U1-T. FOMO prices drove me away from the Marinemaster and Lume falling off bezels turned me away from the Tudor. I'm sure I'll go back and pick up both in time.

    As for the U1, I'm loving the watch and have worn it every day. Now I wish I had a traveling version. I am thinking the U1 could be the perfect travel companion with a 12 hour bezel option and still maintain it's ridiculous legibility and simplicity. The U2 is nice but just not as clean, and say what you want about GMT watches but none are as simple as a 12 hour bezel option.

    Given the relative ease of bezel changes in the U1, I think 12 hour accessory bezels would sell like hot cakes.

    Sinn, if your listening, I'll buy.

    Iíve been wearing my UX while working with an overseas client. I was surprised how easy my bezel could be used to track their time zone. I put the pip on my 8 (their 12). When I see my hour hand next to 35, my brain says 7 quite easily. I guess all the years wearing a dive type watch has trained my eye.

    Anyway, just saying itís easier than one might think.

    Just tried this today. The brain does adjust quite well.

    A U series watch with 12 hour bezel would be legit, imagine the U2 three time zones......
