    Sinn 103 St Ty Case Repair / Customization Questions

    Hello All,

    First time posting over here but I am the proud owner of both the watch mentioned in the post title and a 756.

    I've had this 103 Tachy for a bit and I've been toying with the idea of some minor customization while I get a ding fixed up in the case. My questions (I'm sure they are elementany but I'm a noob):

    1) Can the tachometer ring be removed? I never really liked it and it clusters up the watch's look

    2) If the above is possible, is there a repair shop in the US that could help me out with that and the case ding?

    Again, sorry if I'm asking a dumb question. I probably should have purchased a 356 but at the time I got a deal and it's been my go to watch since. I like the weight, size and that it doesn't have a bezel so if I can get the ring removed I'd be ecstatic.

    Thanks!

    Sorry, I can't answer your question, but I really really hate tachymeters too - this is why I do not like the Omega Speedmaster Professional.

    Hahaha thanks for the sympathy over the Tachy, really hoping someone knows the answer so I can keep the watch.

    Thank you sir! Looks like I'll need to replace the dial to fill the gap. A new mission before I embark on this journey!

    A skilled watchmaker might be able to remove the chapter ring, remove the markings (polish + re-coat perhaps?), and reinstall it.

    That's something I hadn't thought of Enkidu. It would retain the original look of the watch. If not, I will need to find another 103 dial which may be difficult unless I can purchase one directly from Sinn. I'm curious if they can be purchased from Watchbuys in the US?
