    You can purchase bracelets thru WatchBuys. The bezel has to come from Sinn, who will not sell directly to customers in the US.

    Watchbuys is pretty lame in this respect. Sinn Customer service states that Watchbuys can sell us replacement bezels. I call Watchbuys and they say you HAVE to send your watch in to RGM (authorized service center) in order for them to look at it and order parts. They won't just sell you a replacement bezel. Why would they do that to inconvenience you when it's so EASY to remove and reinstall a bezel on the U1s? It's crazy.

    I just spoke with US sales office - did not ask for bezel just wanted SCREWS for the bezel ... long winded explanation why they can't do it ?? No parts are ever sold .. need to send to service center ... I'm not feeling the warm & fuzzy with this manufacturer.

    I've bought spare bezels, end links and replacement pushers from the factory while living in Germany. Some parts like dials are only sold on a one for one swap basis.

    *update*

    Sent a message to Sinn and they did say they were willing to send out replacement bezels. Still waiting on the Paypal invoice to pay so once that's done I think it's a pretty much a done deal. The kicker, shipping is 95 euros!! Oh yeah, the bezels aren't cheap either:
    U1 bezel 210 euros
    U1 SDR bezel 235 euros
    Ouch!!

    I can't understand why shipping would be that much...that's just crazy. Especially from the manufacturer.

    It's a flat charge. I would order an extra SDR bezel or two and sell them on the Sales Corner to help offset the shipping cost. But that's just me.
