    I’ll be there at the 1:00pm showing on Friday;)

    For those of you that haven’t attended before I highly recommend going. It’s a great experience and it’s the closest you’ll get to see most of Sinn’s offerings. Hopefully I’ll get to meet a few of you there!

    Warning!!!....attending could have an adverse effect to your credit card;)

    Cheers

    I’ll be there Saturday at 1PM.

    For those who have attended the event previously, do they have watches on hand for sale? Or do I still have to buy through the website? Not that I plan on buying anything...I don’t plan these things

    They are very firm/clear that the road shows are for viewing/handling only -- no watches for sale at the show. I suspect there may be some tax reasons for that position.

    Once again Rob & Tim put on a great Sinn viewing experience

    There was a relatively small group (8) at the 1pm showing. It was cool to be able to thoroughly check out a watch with out being rushed. Last year I went on Saturday and there were 20+ and several people trying to look at the same watch. Last year I was hyper focused on the T1B and didn’t spend much time with the other designs.

    Today was about the larger chronographs EZM10, 936, 3006 Hunter and a few others.

    All of these are pretty thick at 15mm+. Design wise I felt the 3006 Hunter, based off the 900 Flieger case 44mm, had a great balance with the larger dial.

    The lighting was quite dim so please excuse the subpar photos





    I could easily see a 900S in my future

    The EZM10 is a Beast! I have mixed feelings with this one. It wears large as it’s spec’s would suggest.







    I was very impressed with the 910 SRS.





    The 936 looks killer straight on, but looks chubby on the side profile.





    The U1 Blue was sweet although I was really hoping to see the new U1 S Blue.



    The EZM13 was a pleasant surprise as well



    In the end it was the UX that blew my away!
    At 13.3mm thin it wears perfect. The legibility is off the charts. Zero distortion at extreme viewing angles. It’s like the dial is printed on the crystal



    I want to order a custom version just like El Gerto’s



    Looking forward to next years show

    Spring-Diver would you be so kind to share your “mixed feelings” on the EZM10? I’m aiming for that one as my next.

    Is the crystal domend?
    When some a wild-eyed 8 foot tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the bar room wall and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asked you if you’ve paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye and you remember what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like that: Have you paid your dues Jack? “Yessir the check is in the mail”

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

    IMHO it’s a bit bloated compared to my EZM9, which I think is perfect





    Maybe if the bezel was flush with the case I would like it more. Trust me, I really wanted to fall hard for it.
    As mentioned above, the 3006/900 case is more to my liking.

    Like the 9, the 10’s crystal is lightly doomed
