    Sinn U1 New Tegimented Bracelet wear...is this really what I should expect after two days..

    Hello,

    I tried searching, so since I could not find any info im posting a thread for some help. I just...Just got a Sinn U1 tegmented and purchased seperately at the same time a Tegimented bracelet. For the Only AD in the USA.. See photos just after two days of wear..office only.. If what Im seeing is what I should expect only after two days..then Im surely not impressed by the brand.. I have had watches with cheap PVD show less wear with longer use...

    Looking for some comparative advice to what I am seeing or should expect, and or did I get hosed... hate to think that...but from what I read..its possible as the reviews are starting to tilt in a bad way... I may have made a bad purchase...or did I??

    Thanks guys!

    Uh, it depends on what you did with it? Yard work? 1200 vickers should not scratch so easily imo. But correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the pvd make it easier to scratch?

    I thought I was clear..maybe not..
    2 days of Office wear only... PVD was a comparison stating I have had PVD cheep watches not show signs of wear after 2 days.

    My point is... after reading posts stating how tough this watch is and no signs of wear after months of wearing them...I bought one... but very dissapointed in the bracelet if this is what is expected... Krylon paint wears better...

    Maybe someone can post some picks of what thiers looks like...

    Thanks...

    Does your desk have sandpaper on it?

    I've had both versions of the U1 over the years and never had any wear at all on either. I do desk work all day.

    That's not what I'd expect after two days. What does the AD you bought it from say?

    PVD won't last for lifetime, but this seems a little premature. I would check with whom the purchase was made about swapping the bracelet for another one.
    Would you say I have a plethora of watches?

    They want to examine it... It kinda ticks me off when you can see wear is happining...and even if it is minut at this point...after two days is rediculous for what this watch is supposed to be...thats why Im soliciting input from fellow owners.. be nice to see what others look like after wearing it... trust me..I baby my watches...

    Problem is..Im not confident that anything I would get back from the AD will not be the same... I been down this road once..and it just goes back and forth.. once your dissapointed..its tough to over come...

    like I said... I have cheapo watches that didn't start to wear off this quickly... ugggggg...

    Thanks for the reply..
