    Technical question about UX *NEW* case back

    Hi Guys,

    My US is fresh from the Sinn, just having been servied. New oil and all that. Well, on the paperwork it says new "Current" case back. What does that mean?

    Here is a picture:



    I checked with the original owner and he informed me that this case back is indeed different. The center disk appears to be floating. I can press it down on one side and the other side comes up. Strange!

    Anyone else experience this?

    Thoughts?

    I own an U2. The caseback is totally different, made from one piece, no "floating" centre part. Of course different writing in the center, ( U2 2000m) but the same around the perimeter!
    The 6 cutouts are identical.
    Can you pry it away, is it that loose?
    Maybe it is a new caseback Sinn uses for all U's, they just glue on the center panel to suit the different watches?

    Hi Marc,

    That's the same type of caseback like on my older UX (2006). It is working as a kind of membrane and the slight "give" is normal and supposed to be there, no need to worry!

    The membrane compensates for temperature-change-induced varaitions in the volume of the oil-filling.
