    U1 lume issues?

    I'm thinking of purchasing a new U1 before the prices go up. Have heard/read that there have been some issues with the lume coming off. Has anyone here experienced this problem? Just weighing all the factors before I jump on a watch I really like. Thanks, Michael.

    First I've heard of it. Do a search of this forum. If it's more than an isolated incident, you should find lots of info. Could it be the early UX oil-filled model issues that you have read about?

    My only issue with the lume on mine, is it does not last nearly as long as my Seiko or Panerai. Otherwise I love mine doubt I will ever sell it.

    Nice to hear...maybe I was mixing up my Sinn's (just too many watches out
    there to keep track of).

    Not heard that about the U1 at all. Mine is a year or so old and is fine.

    I've been a U1 nut since before they were available, owned two (still own one), and have never heard of lume coming off. Never.

    amazing of what you hear but can't find any post with the issue you heard about. never a problem with the lume on the sinn u1s. I think I own more than most. at the moment I have 4. one is from the 1st year of production. all have good lume.

    Great pictures ! Sinn should use your pictures on the website and the sales would go up. I am waiting for my U1. It should be delivered within a week which seems to be ages from now.
