    Sinn 103 Ti TESTAF vs Ti DIAPAL

    I am considering buying a 103. The two models that speak most to me are the Ti TESTAF and the Ti DIAPAL (older version with black bezel). Since both models are no longer in production, I will be buying a pre-owned watch.

    I am interested in hearing from forum members regarding which model they would choose. I would also be very interested in learning about what forum members think about DIAPAL and the benefits of this feature over the regular movement.

    Thanks!

    Iím not aware of an older ti diapal with a black bezel, I see a ti Ar on Sinnís archive.

    In any case, I always thought this looked really good.

    I have seen a number of these here and on other forums. It is my understanding that they produced them this way for a few years, and then switched to the gray bezel.

    Interesting, did not know that.

    As for Diapal, until someone else chimes in, Iíll just say that when I was choosing my 900, the only consideration I gave to diapal was the looks and to a much lesser extent the longer warranty.

    I donít think the actual oil free parts would have any impact on my ownership experience.

    I was looking at a 103 ti myself and would probably go with the testaf or its later replacement, the IFR, mainly from the looks point of view (I like the orange!) over the diapal, the longer warranty, as mentioned above being a plus for the diapal though.
