    Bought a Sinn 103 Ti Ar UTC

    Bought on eBay. Seller didn't know exactly what he had.

    Has a Sinn leather band but I bought a rubber strap so I can safely get my watch wet.

    Not flashy...very understated but crisp.

    I do not consider this watch to be "flashy" mainly because it has a matte finish and its dark coloration blends in with your clothing.

    I think this is a rather handsome watch and very subtle but not "flashy."

    Of course, for those who know of it and the model, they know the quality of it.

    Had there not been such a great price on this, I would have chosen its shiny steel brother model instead.

    I'm not really sure how I stumbled upon Sinn but I am happy with the watch and the UTC feature, for me, just adds a little bit of subtle interest to an otherwise somber face.

    I hate the Sinn leather band it came with and why have a watch like this if you can't get it wet so I ordered a Roma stitched rubber band:

    Great, no-nonsense Sinn.

    Whenever someone asks me about a watch that personifies Sinn, the trusted, dependable 103 Ti Ar UTC and its 103 Ti UTC TESTAF successor spring to mind.
    I own both and wouldn't want to miss them.

    Other Sinn models may be more in the limelight now, but this one is a true classic.

    Congrats on the purchase!

    I have the 103 St Sa and although the case is polished, I had the watch serviced recently and had them brush the entire bracelet. Looks great now. Flashy to me are diamonds, gold etc.

    I had the servicing done in Portland and they re-brushed the bracelet for me as I had already brush finished it myself prior. I received it looking almost brand new if it wasn't for the bezel insert showing a little wear. They even buffed out marks on the case. I think it's a great look as a polished bracelet shows marks very quickly IMO.
