Been looking at the Sinn choices for a long time, particularly the UX, not sure what variant, being in UK I just looked at plenty of photos! After a recent life changing event I promised myself something from Sinn! I wanted a solid watch that had different tech to my other pieces, I guess that reflected my event, or to celebrate getting through it, also my work, railway engineer.
I looked at the used market but after a couple of not so great buys a while back, that and being a special purchase it had to be new, I looked at Jura but again no good for a special purchase, I had to try the watch first. So I rang Page & Cooper & made an appointment that day, its only an hours drive but traffic can make it a real drama, but it was well worth it.
I like so many from the catalogue, UX, 144, 556i being my favourites, after so many photos, not that many here as it seems the U1 is preferred? I thought it was going to the the silver GSG9, on black rubber but..
I met Jonathan wearing a nice 140, the ladies at P&C & checked out some stock, Damasko DA36 on bracelet, great looking watch & that bracelet! A couple of UX variants, when I saw the all black version, striking red & white colour on the black I was hooked! I forgot the silver & ordered the UX S! The purchase experience at P&C was a good one.
I also looked at the 556i but was underwhelmed with it, it was on a strap so maybe why, it looks better on the bracelet in photos, and the Marathon GSAR, the dial is not as deep in photos & I really liked the chunky bezel, one of these is likely soon I think. Anyway enough rambling, I have had my UPS shipment email so I hope it will arrive soon! I have a Toshi to try on it & reckon I will sample the white rubber at some point, looking forward to getting my hands on it. Unboxing to follow! A pic because..
