    Re: "In praise of the 103..."

    Hi Cheverian:
    I am an old timer... I have both the 103 and the Omega Speedmaster Moon Watch. Have had the Speedmaster since it was new in 1973. That is quite a few years. It has been extremely dependable and accurate. It does lack the date complexity however. My SINN 103 ST SA A is a workhorse of a watch and has both the day and date complexities which the Moon Watch lacks. The speedy is thinner and a bit smaller whereas the SINN 103 is thicker. The Speedy is (because of its age) no longer with me in the pool or ocean. The newer SINN 103 does go for a swim for sure. But like all chronographs that are not specifically divers. I would suggest that you not use any chronograph feature under water. The 103 that I have has the bi-directional countdown bezel. This feature is extremely handy in many regards. In the best of all worlds you could justify having both pieces. Also the SINN 103's lume is superior to my old Speedmaster's. Due to the age of my Speedy the lume is pretty much non existent. So the SINN 103 in short has day, date and bezel. The Speedy has the Tachymeter ring which is fixed. The Certina DS-2 1888 Precdrive Flyback is quite like the Speedmaster plus has date, two (count them) second hands for splits and is perhaps the most accurate watch I currently own in my collection. It is also a very well priced option. It is on my wrist now in my collection rotation...Name:  IMG_0226.jpeg
