    Sinn UK Service recommendation.

    Can anybody recommend a watchmaker with a good Sinn track record? Don’t really want to have to send my 356 to Germany for a service. They’d need access to Sinn parts as the bottom chronograph pusher needs replaced.

    Re: Sinn UK Service recommendation.

    Hi mate......I think the choices for Sinn authorised dealers and repair centers in the UK are limited. I think the following are authorised dealers:

    - Chronomaster (Neil Wood)
    - Page & Cooper (but I've read concerning posts on here about their service)
    - Jura Watches

    I'd say have a word with Neil at Chronomaster. I've had two Sinn's before and currently the 656. The problem comes when the inert gas in some of their models needs replacing along with the copper sulfate capsule. Not all dealers have the equipment to replace.

    Back in 2015 I had to send my 856 UTC to Germany for a service.

    Hope that helps
    if it seems too good to be true...it usually is.

    Here is a link from Sinn showing the UK centres:

    Neil from Chronomaster is a good guy to deal with (I purchased my custom Sinn 103 from him). However I am pretty sure that he sends Sinn Watches back to Germany for Servicing.

    I'm not sure if Jura Watches carry out servicing on Sinn's.

    Last year I needed to get my Sinn U2 serviced after wearing it literally every day since 22 June 2007. I enquired about the cost with Page & Cooper and it was considerably more expensive than getting it serviced in Germany. I was also apprehensive about sending "my watch" through the post seeing as this watch and I have been through so much together. I have a Sister living in Germany so she was able to take it back to Germany and dropped it into Juwelier Roberto who are able to service even the watches like the U2 with the Ar-Dehumidifying Technology. They did an absolutely fantastic job with the service.

    I have read the horror stories surrounding Page & Cooper...... I purchased my Sinn U1000 from them and the experience was fine. Other items like Sinn rubber straps took ages to arrive if they were not in stock. IIRC I waited 3 months for spare rubber strap for the Sinn U1000 (they are thicker than for U1/U2/UX).... whereas Neil from Chronomaster was able to get me a Sinn U1000 specific steel bracelet from Germany to him and then out to me in less than a week! Dammed good service.

    Much appreciated advice. I get the impression that Page and Cooper are to be avoided at all costs. Following your feedback and what I’ve picked up from other forums sending to Sinn directly is my best option.

    I'm sending my 356 UTC to Chronomaster, to have a new crown tube, crown and crystal fitted. Neil was quick to reply, polite, courteous and the price was very reasonable.
