    Is my New Sinn U1 Genuine?

    Hello,

    SO after extensive looking around I found a Sinn U1 that was only 2 months old and looked in great condition, all this at an "Ok" price of $1550usd.
    I didn't know there were fakes until I started looking through forums, and that got me worried. Mine arrived today so I've had it for less and a few hours.

    I would like people's opinion on whether this one is genuine or not. It did come with box and warranty card. It looks good to me, but doesn't hurt to check with some experts.

    One thing I did notice is that the 5, 10, 40, 45, 50, 55 , Triangle marker lines up perfectly with the dial markers, but the 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 doesn't line up with the dial perfectly. Then I noticed that as I rotate the watch in my hand, this misalignment would fix, is that because the sapphire glass is so thick that it refracts and distorts light?

    You have the WatchBuys stamped warranty card. Call them and they will check the serial number for you. I don’t think you have any reason to worry.

    Contact WatchBuys and confirm that your U1 with those details is the real deal. I would be surprised if the bad guys went to the trouble of faking a WatchBuys completed guarantee card but checking may set your mind at rest.

    I tried contacting Watchbuys, but they need the Purchase invoice to give me the best information.
    They did say the serial is on this watch was a sale from their store, so thats good news.
    Im sure the seller is good and wouldn't do the wrong thing. But you never know now a days, lots of fakes looks so real that its hard to distinguish.

    The handwriting on that Warranty Card matches mine (for a 903), so you got that going for you. The packaging, spring-bar tool and books all look legit as well.

    Nothing at all wrong with that watch. The U1 fakes are pretty obvious. The simple robust nature of the genuine sells it. Put it on and enjoy.
