    Has anyone bought a watch from AD in Germany and had it shipped to US?

    With the Euro free falling it would appear that you could save a lot of money buying from a German or other Euro based dealer directly. Has anyone had success with this. The only being allowed to buy from one place seems very Un American to me.

    It happens but if Sinn finds out the seller could lose their AD status.

    Roadtrip!

    Tell them to bring back the Arktis!

    Yeah I don't need all the Arktis technology, but the dial color was fantastic. Between the Arktis and 356ii they would have two of the most stunning dials, color wise, available, IMO..

    Does Sinn just quietly ignore Chrono24 or is that outside of the AD arrangement? I can imagine it would be difficult to enforce.

    Chrono24 is a European sales site, so there's no way for Sinn to know who purchases those watches.

    BTW, I asked Sinns marketing guy at BaselWorld if the Arktis would make a return and he just grinned like a mule eating briars.

    Well, that was cryptic... Thanks for asking.


    I'll keep saving either way, I will have an Arktis. I would like to have some aspects of the case bead blasted, and keep some polished, for the contrast, and to resemble frost. Something I see a lot of here in Alaska.
