    New 2018 Japan LE U1 & U1000

    These popped up yesterday on FB. I’ll provide the link later tonight

    Link:

    At $470,000 JPY $4,140 USD the U1 is out of my price range

    The U1000 is crazy money... $835,000 JPY. Almost $7,500 USD

    So.... what do you guys think ?

    They’re not for me...however, I do like the skeletonized hands on the U1

    They look beautiful, and very well done, but not sure how functional/practical they would be. And not my cup to tea in terms of a watch to actually wear.

    I'd like a blue dial Sinn, but not that release.
    All the best

    I can imagine being constantly reminded of how much time this planet has got left in it when looking at the dial...

    Probably not for me, but it's a piece that will garner attention on the wrist for sure

    Dials look very busy - seems to go against the tool watch philosophy that Sinn is well known for. More readable than the EZM1 BAPE, though. Designed by a 3rd party I imagine (can't make out the logo at the 4 o'clock position)?

    Eesh. Definitely not for me.

    The dial looks like a graphic from an old school 16 color Space Quest game. I loved those games but not on my watch.

    I dunno man, give me a dial inspired by Tempest and I could be swayed.

    Doesn’t appeal to me but fun to look at!

    When some a wild-eyed 8 foot tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the bar room wall and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asked you if you’ve paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye and you remember what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like that: Have you paid your dues Jack? “Yessir the check is in the mail”

    Current lineup: ROLEX 126600 Sea-Dweller red-Line. Casio GPR-B1000. Seiko SKX007. Casio PRW-2500. Casio PAW-1500.
