The watch is 5 years old and I wear this watch hard. I sent it in for a warranty claim once and it was repaired. For several years I've had these scratches in a parallel and circular shape, most likely from the hour hand, near the 25 minute marker.
I also found this similar thread from years ago: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f24/sin...ed-534703.html
The case has its fair share of nicks and scratches, that's part of life and don't mind these one bit. The dial on the watch, however, is a different story and it's become more and more aggravating. What would you guys do? Is this something Sinn would repair?
I'll be in Frankfurt in August on a Monday midday so have the option to stop in to their service office and drop off. My issue is I don't want to find out it's a $500 repair, pay shipping back to US, etc. Especially when I incurred a few $100 for my first warranty repair. It's a bit frustrating. I wonder if this was scratched when it was there for warranty work, just maybe didn't notice it right then? How does this even happen? What would you guys do?
Here's a few pics, the scratches show up. Depending on the angle and distance you can't even see it many times. But as the owner it does show often.
