I have been lurking here and there, learning about Sinn and mesmerized by their mix of design and functionality. I was absolutely certain I would end up with one of several automatics I had been considering. But as it turns out, I went the quartz route. Go figure. I just couldn't get past the depth effect and the practicality of this very handsome piece. No worries though. As funds allow, I am sure I will be back for one of several autos catching my eye already. Anyway, I can't wait until I open that box Monday! I will post pics, if only to appease the gadget geek in me. I look forward to becoming an active member of this community. Now I gotta go pace for a few days. Seeya.
