Hi all, new member here. I've been reading through blogs/forums/reddit regarding the T2, hoping to gain some insights and advice.
I am looking at getting "the one watch" for various activities and dressy occasions (suits maybe even black tie). My searches led me to two likely candidates: Sinn T2 and Rolex Submariner Date.
The price discrepancy is not a big issue for me, but rather toughness, form and function. Some questions
1) is the movement in the Sinn as stable and accurate as the Rolex?
2) ease of service and frequency for the Sinn? I live in Sydney, so a bit far from Frankfurt.
3) how tough and scratch resistant is the tegimented T5 titanium case? How does that compare with the U1 submarine steel?
I am not a showy guy, hence leaning towards the Sinn. But The submariner has a high reputation too. I just need a watch that will work in all situations 24x7. Something I don't have to worry about.
My previous watches:
Tag - leaked during a 60m dive.
Suunto - change battery too frequently. UI annoying for night mountaineering.
G-shocks - tough but too big. Also the bands scratched wax off my surfboards.
Luminox - band broke and not very comfortable.
