    Laughing U1 price in Hong Kong

    Sorry I am not sure if it is ok make a post asking this kind of question. If it is not allowed please kindly delete it.

    I am from Hong Kong and by coincidence I found a shop selling Sinn watches. When I learned the list prices I have a feeling that it's so expensive...
    For example: U1 costs HKD 39,000 which is around USD 5,000

    I wonder if it costs the same in Europe countries or else where.
    (or may be this is the Sinn price level as I know nothing about this brand indeed)

    Walk away from there as fast as you can.

    Full retail price for a U1 is somewhere in the USD 2100 - 2200 range....and you can find lightly used ones here on the sales forum for several hundred cheaper...

    That's way too expensive. I bought mine new from a German AD 1½ year ago for less than a third of that price.

    The sales lady said they r the AD in HK.
    She said they offer 40% discount but it sounds tricky after all....

    There is only one AD in Hk, they are the LS group. Their usual pricing is about 2.5x the regular price which in recent years they off 40% during promotions, they didn't even have this discount a few years back. It's a shame they have the monopoly on Sinn in HK, best bet is to go to Europe then claim the VAT.

    i bought 6060 from LS group. During the so called 40% promotions. Ended up cost around the same with watchbuys. Their normal price is cut throat. If they have the discount on then it's just okay pricing. Not fantastic

    Re: U1 price in Hong Kong

    During a trip to Hong Kong I too noticed that Sinn prices there are prohibitively expensive, which unfortunately seems to apply to several countries in that region.


    What makes matters worse is that other Sinn Authorized Dealers (AD) are not supposed to sell Sinn watches into a region that is covered by another Sinn AD.
