    Oh, the death throws of a Sinn UX... Important update

    So, after 7 years and 9 months of use and abuse, my UX is on its way out. Funny how it lets you know it's dying, the second hand starts to seemingly, randomly "jump" 10 to 15 seconds, then go back to its normal self. I'm sure there is some sort of sequence, I just haven't noticed. Funny thing is, it is still keeping pretty good time. Off to Germany, so it seems. Good news, mine is first/early gen so I have oil discoloration on my hands and dial. Personally, I kind of like it. But it is exciting to know I will probably get it back with a shiny new white dial and hands. I don't know if Sinn is still replacing dials of this age on warranty due to the oil "issue" but I guess I will find out! Not counting on it. Will update when I know more!

    You will actually like it more with the new, white lume. I know I did. It seems like a new watch!

    I had a 403 and a ezm2 done recently: cost was about $225, including movement service, new gaskets, new battery, oil filling and shipment back.

    My 403 needed a new battery and had that stained look: they replaced the oil and it was white as the driven snow. They said they will no longer replace dials and hands unless the owner pays for them.

    Ah, maybe just the oil is discolored then and the lume isn't stained, wouldn't that be nice. I would imagine a dial and hands to be in the few hundred range. I am figuring 500.00 with shipping, service, etc. If I get away for less, bonus! I will probably get it sent off next week.

    What? They no longer replace the dial and hands? But what if the UX was from an earlier batch before that started using the new type of oil that is supposed to not discolor the dial and hands? Shouldn't they fill it up with the new type of oil and swap the dial and hands for free?
    I want to be a ONE watch guy!!

    I use usps international priority, 3 to 5 days: it's way cheaper than intl express.
