    Sinn U1 with Domed U2 Crystal

    i finally received my repaired U1 back from germany!

    they were nice enough to replace my damaged u1 crystal with a domed u2 crystal! very cool.

    a few months ago, i took a nasty spil on my mtn bike and scraped the bezel, crystal (along with my face ) on the pavement.

    face, limbs, and now my u1 are all healed up and good to go.

    i LOVE the look of my u1 with the domed crystal. hard to capture on film, but just the slightest curve on the u2 crystal adds alot to the watch IMHO.

    The addition of a U2 domed crystal gives the U1 a more formiddable look. That 4.6mm thick domed sap is something else, it looks indestructible and will definitely be more resistant to shattering, not that the U1 was fragile by any sense of the word. I do like how the light refracts through it at angles. It's a cool effect.

    That..is a very nice mod for sure. Congrats!
