    T1- Blue vs. Black dials

    Contemplating my next Sinn. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be the T1, but unsure of the blue dial. Anyone have real world lighting pics of the blue and black dials, possibly side by side and with bracelet and strap? Lume shots? User/owners opinions?

    Current lineup: ROLEX 126600 Sea-Dweller red-Line. Casio GPR-B1000. Seiko SKX007. Casio PRW-2500. Casio PAW-1500.

    I have both, and they are really different. The blue one is my watch for the weekend, or vacation.
    The black one ist the every-day-watch.


    Here some pics of my T1`s, there is also a user-experience about one year:

    I have both as well.





    I’ll echo what Andi said, T1B is more of a weekend and the T1 everyday.

    Lume burns all night, it’s just not Seiko bright.



    Both are awesome IMO. I’ll add some more photos in a little bit

    Thank you for the insight and pics. I dig the blue cause it’s different, novel but not sure if I could live with it 24/7.

    Re: T1- Blue vs. Black dials

    So I'd probably go with the black if it were my only Sinn diver. If I already had a Sinn diver, I'd 100% go with the blue. I think I like the blue better in general, but like others have said, it's not nearly as versatile as the black would be...
