    Sinn 156 Pics with Replacement Dial? To replace or not replace?

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for some pics of a Sinn 156 with the replacement dial that Sinn uses to replace damaged dials if anyone has one? I tried to find a few as a I've read they replace it with a superluminova variant but I can only find pics of the lume in the dark, not what the dial actually looks like. Does anyone have a pic?

    I have my 156 at RGM at the moment and there is apparently damage to the dial. I'm somewhat torn on having it replaced as the dial has really creamy tritium and looks kind of awesome but there is a bit of damage to the dial that I'm not sure warrants a replacement. Below is a picture of the dial damage, I have a feeling I shouldn't replace it but it's open to discussion if the damage is significant. I don't believe it is but I'm not an expert:

    If you are talking about the patch of fading/lighter color between the 4 and 5 hour markers, i would DEFINITELY NOT replace the dial because of that.

    Quick follow up. Thanks for the input, I did not go for the replacement after hearing from the team here and digging around about the patch. I was concerned it would continue to deteriorate and be an issue down the road but not the case.
