    Sinn Modification

    I've been looking for a blue watch and I've narrowed my candidates down to either the Sinn 203 Arktis or a Breitling Superocean. This is a tough call because I really wish the bezel insert on the Arktis is blue rather than silver. Would Sinn entertain requests to swap bezel inserts? Has anyone made any modification requests to Sinn? Many thanks.

    Does Sinn ever make a ceramic bezel? Is there an after market for that stuff? Looking for one for my 104 green.

    Swap it to what? I don’t believe Sinn makes a blue insert in that size.

    ...btw: the 203 has no bezel insert.

    But: The bezel of the Sinn 103 A Sa B may fit. I have seen 203s with the black 103 bezel. If that is possible, the bezel of the Sinn 103 A Sa B should fit.
    Another option may be to use the inlay ontop of the 203 bezel......

    For a good watchmaker it should be possible to create the bezel you prefer. But I fear SINN will not do this ......

    My mistake. I thought you were looking at the new 206, which is larger.

    Not sure what fits what but be careful as some companies can suddenly get very sniffy about warranty work on non standard items for some reason.

    Guys, thanks for your inputs. Unfortunately, I don't think the bezel change is going to work at all. The thicknesses of the bezels on the 203 (older 41-mm version) and the 103 A Sa B are very different.

    I guess I will wait and see what Sinn will be releasing this year. Cheers guys!
