Hello all you evil enablers, filling your posts with German steel bad @ssness. This is another "help me figure out what to do" thread. I've been admiring Sinns from afar, but I am now planning on wading into the waters with a 104, EZM 3, or the dark horse UX EZM 2b.
I like the 104, but feel it might be a little too close to my Speedy and Steinhart OVM. I'm a bracelet guy, but prefer the standard Sinn bracelet to the one that's going to be available for the 104. I already have polished case watches. But this watch is simple, strong and straight forward. It's the least expensive option and there's nothing complicated to make servicing it more expensive down the line.
The EZM 3 is different from others in my collection. I don't have a true tool watch, nothing with a blasted case. I dig the crown on the left. I'm not sure about it because there's nothing like it in my collection. The dial feels a little busy with the inner number ring. The dehumidifier capsule will make servicing a bit more expensive.
Then there's the dark horse... the UX that I just kinda discovered. It has a cleaner dial than the EZM. But is much bigger at 44mm and that's the upper limit of my size preferences on my 7.5" wrist. It's the most expensive, it's quartz. The battery lasts 7 years, but needs to be sent back to Germany each time it needs to be changed because of the oil filled case and I'm not sure of the cost.
So there you are. Please weigh in.
Oh and here are some pretty pictures stolen from the interwebs to reward you for reading my long post.
