    Just replaced my U1 SDR bezel

    Just got in a new U1 SDR Bezel and ratchet system direct from Sinn. Looked over the ratchet system and decided to reuse the old one but pulled up the tabs a little bit and...voila!! No more play in the bezel!! Oh yeah...no more scratches to look at either!

    Nice. Sometimes I think the U1 SDR is the best looking watch on the planet. Glad yours is like new again. It's especially nice when you can do the work yourself, and be pleased with the result. Congrats.

    Thanks guys. But seriously, if you know how to use a screw driver that's all the skill you need. The ratchet system pulls off pretty easily and it's pretty self explanatory how to put it back in. Just remember the exact position it was in or your bezel won't line up correctly at the 12 o'clock position as I found out :)

    Did Watchbuys sell you the bezel or did you get it from another source?

    Sinn will sell direct for a bezel replacement (not watches) at least that's what they told me a few months ago when I had Brice's U1. It was about $340 USD shipped IIRC.

    What Hoppyjr said. I believe it was 230 Euros for the bezel/4 Euros for a replacement ratchet ring/95 Euros shipping.
