    I guess Sinn read our Poll: Who Wants to Design Your Own LE Sinn? post, except PVD

    There are only two kinds of people in the world, the ones that own Sinn U1, U1W, U2, UX, U212 and U-Unlimited, and ones that don’t.

    I am the ruler of the attunement to my inner self.

    while I would LOVE a white dialed U1 I'm having a hard time believing that pic is real. Why is it in B/W?? It looks like a manipulated reverse negative...i mean would sinn REALLY put this watch on a white strap??

    I can assure you this watch is real...I handled it last Saturday at Baselworld and Ernie took a few pictures of it on my wrist. This was the TOP Secret Sinn he mentioned in his Baselworld Day Three thread.

    Looks a bit boring with no colours. We can learn from that, and create a much more spectacular watch!!
    Is the dial fully lumed or just white?

    I hate a white band. They stay white untill you actually use it, about 3.5 minutes. Max.
    This watch is a prototype for a proposed limited edition comissioned by one of Sinns other customers. If I were a betting man I'd say it's probably the same customer behind the Limited Edition (250 pieces each) U1 Black and the U1 Stealth. The fact the photo first turned up on Horomundi makes it hard to believe otherwise.

    GREAT NEWS!

    I hope this watch isn't too limited...I've been waiting for just the right U1 for a while and this is it!

    What color are the hands? From the gray tone it looks like they might be red??

    Right you are about our WUS U1 Project Watch, Janne!

    The reason I got to handle this TOP Secret Sinn is because Ernie Romers (WUS Owner), Marcel (Ernies business partner), John F. and I were meeting with Sinn on Saturday to discuss a WatchUSeek Limited Edition Sinn U1 of our very own.

    I pitched our preliminary design and Simone (Sinns Marketing Manager) smiled, excused herself and returned with this watch. We were floored! We discussed the possibility of a similar watch and Sinn is on board as long as it is unique enough that it won't be confused with the TOP Secret U1 for their other customer. I enquired about other color and feature combinations and it appears the sky (and our wallets) is the limit.

    All we have to do on our end is guarantee 30 buyers and they'll produce a run of 50 for us. I will post more from our meeting in the coming days. Ernie is going to set up a WUS LE Sinn sub-forum when he returns from Baselworld.
