    Sinn UX SDR. PUSH ME!

    It's all set up. The cash will be ready soon. Rob has all the variations I want and everything is ready for the "Ok" to order from Sinn before the increase.

    I just need the push. Why the UX? Is it really a ~$2500 watch? Is the strap really a $300 strap (teg buckle)?

    For ~2500 bucks id be looking at their automatic models. The u2 ezm5 is my favorite atm. I like the idea of a quartz sinn but the price isnt justified in my mind. Sure its oil filled and can withstand insane pressure but that doesn't really apply to most people and only means that a battery change is going to require shipping the watch back to Germany for service. I guess its the same with the autos too with the argon filled cases but its not a requirement like the oil filled models. Its still a gorgeous watch, just a little pricey imo for a quartz. Im curious what movement they use :confused:
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy

    It is quartz, but not a run of the mill quartz. It is a certified chronometer thermo compensated quartz movement. Yes the watch is worth it IMO. The cool factor alone kicks a$$.
    Too many flipped...

    Yes, it is a great looking watch.
    Yes, it has some fantastic features : oil filled = great visibility from every angle
    WR 5000 m = too much, I know, but love it
    Yes, it has the best looking bezel.
    Yes, quartz is great, Always ready to go, and fantastic accuracy
    Yes, Sinn holds his value, even after 5 years, you can sell it at +70% of the new price

    Yes, I am also going to buy one.....

    Good luck.

    Pro's
    -Rugged
    -Supremely Accurate
    -Intriguing Technology
    -Fairly Attractive
    -Great Visibility

    Con's
    -Needs to return to Deutschland for service/repairs
    -Lume not all that bright (I assume it's diffused by the oil)

    Great 'grab-n-go' watch. I'm happy with mine. (The decision between the U2 and the UX is a tuffy though, as that watch has some interesting features of its own)

    Also: Make sure you're getting it for frivolous "I just gotta have it" reasons rather than just 'cos the price is going up
