    DIAPAL long term reviews?

    Is a DIAPAL watch worth getting? Anyone have issues with it? I'm lusting after the EZM 10 lately...

    How's the servicing cost vs having to service more infrequently?

    Right, most Diapals earn the higher price easily during their lifetime. SINN knows that and gives longer warranty for Diapals: 5 years.
    Service-costs are the same than non-diapal.....

    Background is that certain material-mixes reduce friction. Less friction means less wear and tear. That can easily been verified with the higher Amplitude of the diapals after years of use.
    I have seen many Diapals that have the Amplitude of a new one (to tell the truth: I have seen some non-Diapals as well, but not that many)

    SINN calls that:
    In this case we select special pairs of materials that work together without lubrication (!) and without causing friction, ensuring long-term accuracy of the movement and particularly of the Swiss anchor escapement.
