    New acquisition and seeking bezel insert

    Hello everyone. I have finally hunted down my favorite Sinn
    Model 103a Klassik. It has not yet arrived, but Iím already seeking a new bezel insert as the original has had a few run ins with door jams apparently. So if anyone has any leads that do not require sending my new love off to Sinn please LMK.

    I canít wait to add some wrist shots, but these pirated pixs will have to do for now.

    Beautiful. May I be so bold as to ask where/how you did find it?

    I just got lucky. Iím always on the lookout for one so last week I did what was becoming another routine google search, and BAM one popped up for sale in Europe.

    I have not kept track of how long I have been hunting for one at a good price, but I know itís close to two years+

    I noticed a concentration of Sinn forums in Germany w/ posters posting pictures, and opinions on the piece. So I guess that is where most of them have ended up.

    Makes sense. I guess not many made their way across the pond.

    Have you contacted WatchBuys? If they can get it from Sinn, they will gladly sell it to you.
    Iím not sure if Sinn sells the insert by itself, or only installed in a new bezel.

    Thank Shorty!
    I sent them a message, and hopefully I will hear back. Till then the hunt continues.

    Watchbuys will work with you to get a new insert although as CGSshorty said it may need a fully new bezel assembly. In any event, I'd suggest that you wait to make any decisions until you actually receive the watch. Maybe it's not as bad as you fear when you actually see it in person?

    Anyway, a HUGE congratulations is in order. The 103 klassik is a grail and nearly impossible to find as you obviously know . It's my favorite Sinn. Can't wait to see some pics when you get it.

    Your in luck...

    As you can see the bezel is pretty rough; however, the case and bracelet are still in very good shape. Iím talking to my watch maker this week about polishing out the scars to the outer and inner rings of the bezel. Hopefully all I will have to order is the numbered bezel insert if he can clean up the rest.

    Looks like I can make it look new again for only a couple scoots!
    Thanks Shorty. I will post some more pix when she is back to her formal glory.

    Even after a week+ it is hard to take off my wrist.

    She is a beauty!!!! Thanks for the pics. Enjoy!! (and perhaps give Sinn's black leather "alligator" strap with the white stitching a try too... it looks killer on the klassik...)
