    New addition/first Sinn

    Picked up a Sinn 157 St Ty from a friend for an insanely good price, despite it being from 2001 (according to his emails with Sinn) and mistreated, at some point, with a terrible "polish." No doubt before my friend got it as he's a bit of a Sinn nut (I got it because this was his 2nd 157) The more I wear it the more I love it though. My first Sinn and first mechanical chrono since this has, of course, the Lemania cal.5100 movement.

    Does anyone know what these sold for new back then? Secondary market seems strong but I have no idea what original msrp was.

    I kinda dig the "textured" look but its over polished along with the bracelet which definitely makes me sad. :( Definitely a piece I'll enjoy for a long long time....

    There are plenty of places that can bead blast that for you.

    It is a great looking timepiece. I agree with the other members, get it bead blasted.

    I'll probably wait until it needs servicing at Sinn then get that done too.
