    Sinn T1 with a little mod

    Can you spot the mod? (It's not the strap, btw! )





    Cheers,

    Is the Ar indicator missing?

    Replaced black bezel numbers and markers with white. Very nice.

    Nope, it's still there. But it can't be seen in the second picture.

    That's it!

    I always had trouble to read the small black numbers and markers under water. Redability is much better now, especially under low light conditions. And imho the new look suits the T1 really well!

    No, it has been done by Sinn in Frankfurt. It's actually a replacement bezel (they told me that the result wouldn't be that great if they simply paint over the black numbers and markers). They made me two offers: 1) to exchange the bezel (i.e. give them the original bezel back and get the new custom bezel) or 2) to get an additional bezel with the custom paint job and keep the old one. Obviously option 1 was less expensive and as I never really liked the original bezel, this is fine with me.

    I also asked whether it would be possible to get a custom SDR bezel but for this, there was no chance...
