Hi there everyone
My first post here.
I've been after a decent watch for some time now. In the past, I've owned nice watches from both Omega and Tag, but they are both on the wrists of my two sons. I am currently wearing a Seiko flight master, which is okay but not in the same league.
I am half-German so I feel the irrational tug towards German watches, and having looked at Sinn, Damasko, Laco and Stowa, I think it's Sinn for me. Moreover, it will be a Sinn diver for me, and I'm weighing up whether I want to buy a U1 SE on a black bracelet, a U1 SDR with tegimented case/strap or a USX GSG9.
I'm in the UK so there's no real opportunity to see, try on, etc. How can anyone drop >£2k on a watch, unseen? So I'm thinking of heading over to Frankfurt to the famous showroom to try them all on.
What have others done in this situation? And if I go down the Sinn showroom route, can one purchase and take delivery on the spot? I love instant gratification
