    Sinn Price increase

    I emailed WatchBuys to see if they offer any discounts on their Sinn watches. They kindly explained that they always list the best price and they do not offer discounts. The email went on to state that beginning some time in August, Sinn has announced they’ll be raising prices worldwide due to increased production costs and unfavorable changes in the exchange rates. any guess if it’ll be every single model, or just particular ones. Either way, this news is making me sweat as I like to sleep on my purchases for many weeks lol

    That's why there's a mad rush to buy before the increases take effect.

    They do this every year. Their prices go up consistently each year like my pay always does. As if...

    Many products go out of stock right before those price increases. And there's a lot of postings about that every September it seems.

    How drastic are their increases usually? 5%?

    Sinn have been doing this year, after year, after year and I think it's now getting a bit too much. Damasko watches now offer much better bang for your buck than comparable Sinn models.

    Generally, with all of the competition out there one would
    think that a vendor or manufacturer would want to stand out among their peers in pricing
    and or value. In my opinion, this is why some micro-brands are kicking ass.
    I am astounded what some of major brands sell for despite the company's
    "history"," prestige" and/or reputation. I love my U1, but buying one brand new
    today, especially with the foretasted price increases would be out of the question.

    The fact that I have been saving money out of every paycheck since New Years and was anticipating having enough money set aside for a German chronograph in September or so makes this painful. I was waffling between a 103 sapphire or a Damasko. I guess this is the last push I need to go choose a Damasko or maybe a Guinand.

    I've been a Sinn customer since 2010. My first mechanical was a Sinn 656. Their prices have been creeping up slowly over the years.

    I moved away from Sinn to Damasko and then recently bought a Sinn 656S a few months ago pre-owned. I paid pretty much what the watch would have cost brand new back in 2010.

    Damasko offer better value for sure however some of their dial designs start becoming a bit sterile to look at if you don't rotate frequently.
