    I can't speak for Copenhagen but AFAIK there is not an AD at the Frankfurt Flughafen.

    How much ground time will you have in Frankfurt? If you overnight you could catch a cab and visit the factory (Im Füldchen 5-7, phone 069/ 9784140) or their AD in Frankfurt (Nickel on Mainzer Landstrasse 99, phone 069/ 236806). If that's doable call ahead for availability.

    Not at the airport,as far as I know.

    Not in Frankfurt, and I very much doubt in Copenhagen.

    As someone suggested already, the taxi trip from Frankfurt Airport to the factory is about 15 mins and they undoubtedly have to largest collection.
    In fact, they even could reserve a watch for you and you would be sure the watch is there waiting for you when you get there.

    Depending on where you live, you might be able to claim the 19% sales tax (Mehrwertsteuer) back after you have taken the watch out of the Germany and after German Customs have stamped the invoice.


    Seems to be the most promising way to go, if you can spare the extra time.

    I am quite sure CPH Airport does not have any Sinn Watch... not sure abt CPH. But your best bet is Frankfurt as mentioned by SMSgt Bo and Kurt. Even my Swedish fren dont get his watch from Sweden or Denmark but thru a AD in Germany. Good luck with your hurt!

    German MSRP for the U1 is 950 Euro on silicone strap and 1,095 on the bracelet. The factory will not give discounts but local AD's sometimes do.

    Sinn will not give any discounts; local watch dealers may give you some, but it will be a far cry from discounts offered in the Far East or US.


    If you live outside the EU, you could claim the VAT back, which is included in the German Sinn price list. Sinn will refund it after you have returned the invoice, stamped by German Customs; for local watch dealers you would need to inquire.

    German VAT is 19% but the rebate will end up being slightly less. Read more about it here:
