Picked up a Sinn UX GSG9 DSR
And am Very happy with this investment. After some bad luck with a few autos (not Sinn) I decided to try out a Quartz diver. Picked this one up new from watchbuys.com. Excellent service and would gladly come back.
Thoughts and Impressions:
Amazing build quality!
I had my reservations about the oil filled case and servicing but feel confident I'll get many years of reliable service before having to ship back to Germany.
The location of the crown make it a bit quirky but actually in a place good for me. Doubt I'll have to pull it often anyway. So far 2 weeks in with +/- 0 seconds.
My only gripe is the monstrous clasp that came on the rubber strap! I predominately wear Zulu straps because I like the low profile. Also wish it was black to match the bezel. Have already priced having it DLC coated for $150 from Richter Precision inc. Will give it go on a custom leather or canvas before committing.
Have considered buying the bracelet and wish I had tried negotiating with watchbuys or pricing direct from Germany. Any feedback on the bracelet would be greatly appreciated. If the clasp is comparable in size to the one on the rubber I'll steer clear.
Here's a few pics of this BEAUTY! Currently have a it strapped with a few custom canvas and cordura Zulus.
Thanks Bill for the wrist shot! May have to see one of your bracelets in person. Should have asked you to bring to the GTG
