    I don't think anyone who knows anything about watches will confuse the Sinne with a Sinn.

    David, you are absolutely correct but this isn't one of them and it isn't even trying to be. Sinn has nothing to worry about with this piece.

    I'm surprised they are even discussing these nasty Sinn ripoffs... stealing the style AND the name... and I think Sinn vs Sinne can create confusion in the marketplace and could sully Sinn's good name... seems like blatant trademark infringement to me?

    That was one of my concerns when I bought my U2. One of the "downsides" if you can call it that, of Sinn's Spartan designs is the ease in creating believable reproductions. Harder to spot fakes, unless you're very familiar with the intricacies. Fortunately on the U2, the main tell is the copper sulfate capsule. On fakes, it's usually level with the rest of the dial, while it sits below on the authentic. There's not a whole lot of interest in fake Sinn's thankfully, not like Rolex. Although it would be fun to have a Sinn equivalent of the Rolex Enforcer.

    It may "resemble" a Sinn but anyone comparing the Sinne with a Sinn will easily spot the differences.
