    Sinn 103 Ti Diapal bezel color

    What is the bezel color of the 103 Ti Diapal? Google searches show conflicting evidence. Some are black on gray dial, others are gray on gray. I would prefer it if it was the same gray as the dial. The website reads: "Pilot's bezel with minute ratcheting and luminous key mark." I know the stainless steel case has the black bezel. But I have my eye on the bead-blasted finish of the titanium case. Thanks.

    Edit: I just found out the movement does not have a sweeping second hand in normal function. It works moves when using the chronograph. That's a deal breaker for me. Too bad.

    Looks like the 103 Ti Diapal has a gray bezel. Sinns website shows other 103s with black bezels.

    In former times, the bezel was black at the ti-diapal-model and grey at the st-diapal-model.
    Nowadays both bezels of the 103-diapals are grey like the dial.

    All other 103-models wear the black bezel.

    In my option, the black bezel fits perfekt with the counters, and the grey bezel fits perfekt wirh the dial.

    Therefor both bezels are great !

    Pete: Looks awesome! The big second hand does not sweep normally, does the smaller dial in the 9 o'clock position sweep? Is that what Sinn calls "subsidiary seconds?"

    Thats right, the main second hand is for the chrono functions and the dial at 9 is the normal seconds counter.

    Theres also a UTC hand hiding underneath the main hour hand on the picture above.

    the gray dial/gray bezel looks great with the titanium case.

    Re: Sinn 103 Ti Diapal bezel color

    Hey Guys,

    I am thinking of pulling the trigger on a 103 Diapal. I am torn between the Steel and Titanium versions. I am unable to physically look either as I live in the States and have to purchase through Watchbuys. Will someone shoot me straight as to which one I should get?

    Thanks,

    Justin
