    Anyone own two U1's ?

    I have one & can't decide if I prefer rubber strap or bracelet .
    I was looking for a different every day rugged watch .. Got to thinking ..
    why not get another U1 & have one on bracelet & one on rubber strap ...

    Maybe I'm the only one. But let's hear it!

    I have a U1 T and a U1 SDR. Both were on the OEM bracelets, but I got a Sinn rubber strap with the pvd deployant for my SDR. I like both the bracelet and the Sinn rubber strap.

    I don't like a buckle on a strap and that is one of the reasons I like the Sinn strap as it has the nice deployant clasp. Here are some shots of my Sinn pair. Cheers, Bill P.

    Although mine is an 857, I find myself going between the Rubber Strap/Deployant, Bracelet and a Maratac Zulu quite regularly. Owning a second one would be handy. I've even debated getting a Sinn leather strap for it, although that may be a bit harder to pull off with a U1.

    I suppose the Bracelet would be the closest to the "do-all" option in my books, but all the Strap/Bracelet options that work so well with Sinn's, it keeps me wearing it daily, whereas I seem to have love hate relationships with my Omega's.

    I saw my first Sinn U1 in the wild at one of our ATL GTG's and knew then I had to have one. However, I had a chance to pick up a mint condition U1 SDR from a friend first. So I got the U1 SDR which I have really enjoyed. I still had the itch for the U1 and added it to the collection. I enjoy them both. As far as I'm concerned, the Sinn U1 (either the reg one or the SDR model) is a classic and a must have in any watch collection. Cheers, Bill P.

    Far be it from me to discourage a fellow WIS from buying more watches, but it's pretty darn simple to swap out bracelets and straps on a U1. If you already own one, why not just pick up the strap or bracelet from Watchbuys and save yourself a ton of $$$?

    Del: No I don't. I have uh... two dollars... and a Casio.

    No doubt about it, you make a good point! Cheers, Bill P.
