    Couldn't resist.....finally pulled the trigger......the wait begins

    I was in for a Sinn U (1,2,X) for a while but couldn't made up my mind. I like the U1 but the hands:-S I like the U2, but the price :-S
    So in between these is the .... Yeah......UX.

    Today I called my Sinn-suplier and talked a bit about Sinn, also about upgoing prices in September and also about the upgoing VAT in Germany in January.

    He quoted me a price and i couldn't resist anymore :-X .....I pulled the trigger for a new Ux.

    Seems there is a long waiting list, could be december or january before the watch arrives.

    Maybe you can help me to get over the long wait by putting some comments and pics of the Ux overhere :thanks

    Hmm, today is 23 august, that leaves me about 4 months to find out how I am going to tell my wife
    I am not going to do that today, no way O| O| She will shoot me

    I guess, X-mas eve is a good day to do that :gold

    Yes, Christmas Eve, with a pink Bentley Continental on the front lawn, wrapped in a huge red ribbon with your wife's name on the bow. That should about do it. Emphasize that you sacrificed and bought a less expensive watch so that she could have the Bentley.

    From a practical standpoint, I think the UX is a fine compromise. You'll have seven years before it has to be sent to Sinn for a battery replacement, you'll get the Tegimented case and hardened sapphire crystal with coating (worth a great deal to me), and the timekeeping should be superb. And you can even wear it without worry in the rain. Congratulations! You'll be very happy with it.

    Congratulations I've "sinn-ed" as we did. So the best solution is not to tell anyone!! :-X :-D :-D

    Only the bezel of the U-series is tegimented, not the case - except, apparently, for a very limited production run.

    Right you are; thanks. We need to know more about this "limited production run." At one time I thought all the new U1 and U2 examples coming out later this year (a sort of "Series II") were to have cases Tegimented. Was this just a rumor?

    Congratulations, I did the same thing yesterday only it was a Tegimented U2. When I told my wife it probably won't be here until November she asked me why I did not get it this week. Telling her straight up always works for me.

    Congrats. I would have a hard time waiting, but it'll be worth it.

    Does anybody know the serial numbers of the limited run tegimented cases?

    I got my U1 from the very first batch that Watchbuys received. When was this mysterious run of the tegimented cases?

    There were and are no tegimented cases up to now. The tegimented cases will be done in the near future. If you have a U series watch, the case is non-tegimented. The new ones will be out, earliest Octoberish/November and possibly later from what I've been told.

    cheers,
    Tim
