    Polished, satin, and bead-blasted

    In trying to decide between polished and matte versions of two Sinn watches (103 and 104), I reached out to Sinn in Germany and received the following picture of three Sinn finishes: polished, satin, and bead blasted. From the response (so far), I'm still a little unsure if the matte 103 and 104 are satin or bead-blasted. If anyone knows, or can compare their watch to these photos, I'm interested in learning more.

    Check out this thread:

    Split-2nd has some nice comparison shots, better for comparison than the ones I posted earlier in that thread. The matte 104 is bead-blasted, according to Watchbuys description.

    ^ Thanks zenfrogmaster. I'll check out the thread. I did hear back from Sinn, however, and was told the Watchbuys matte 103 and 104 are satin, not bead-blasted.

    Didn't mean to stir up controversy -- was just interested in knowing which it is, since I prefer a slightly reflective satin finish over a flatter bead blast.
