    656 wasn't enough, U1 is on the way!

    I tried so hard to resist the urge to get another Sinn, but I finally yielded to all the peer pressure.
    I'm just waiting for my FedEx number from Watchbuys, I guess I'll have it early next week.
    Hopefully this will be my ideal Desk Diving watch, something that won't show all the scratches and dings from all the shelves and book trucks here in this dangerous library I work in!
    It's gonna be fun finding out

    my fingers are aching from typing out all the congratulatory notes.

    But it's a good tired, congratulations and wear it well. Looking forward to your thoughts and some pics.
    kind regards,

    All that water in your library can't do the books any good surely?

    Just a warning to you...once you get the U1 the 656 won't be getting much wrist time!

    Re: 656 wasn't enough, U1 is on the way!

    I finally got it yesterday!!
    My first impressions when I opened the box were, "WOW it's BIG" and then, "What the heck do I do with those Allen (hex) Keys?" "Is that how the Bezel is attatched?"
    Well I soon got that figured out, what an amazingly easy to adjust bracelet!

    And everybody is right, I haven't taken it off my wrist since I got it (well once to clean the smudges) I guess I'm going to have to force myself to wear the 656 once in a while!
    If this works here's a scan of both!

    When I got my U1 I ended up selling my 656. After wearing the U1 and getting use to its size, the 656 just seemed so small on my wrist when I would wear it. Just couldn't go back to the 38.5mm size. I've since got an 856 and ordered an 857 on a tegimented bracelet which should arrive tomorrow! I'll post pics when I get a chance this weekend.

    Don't force yourself, send it to me! I'll gladly wear it...

    By the way, beautiful watches!
