    Confused Next purchase: another diver (Sinn UX) or different (Casio Oceanus)?

    Hi forum.

    I’m reaching out to you for some opinions. I am contemplating my next purchase for a couple of months now. Currently there are two contenders:




    Yes, these watches are totally different from one another, apart from telling the time To understand this choice, this is my current lineup:

    • Citizen JP1010-51L (ana-digi diver, stainless with blue dial)
    • Citizen PMX56-3002 (black DLC titanium Eco-Drive diver)
    • Citizen HiSonic (tuning fork watch from 1971)
    • Citizen Leopard SuperBeat 10 (mechanical 36,000bph watch, 28 jewels, from 1970)
    • Casio GW-M5600-1ER (black resin standard digital Casio square)


    I realize it looks as if I have a weak for Japanese watches although I strongly consider the Sinn for my next purchase. Both the UX and the Oceanus have their pros as far as I’m concerned. I like the “technical marvels” both watches have, such as the Hydro tech of the Sinn and the Bluetooth/ titanium and slim size of the Oceanus.

    But now I’m stuck. Which watch should be my next? I don’t like flipping watches, I try to keep and wear them all. Except the vintage pieces all watches come with me when diving, hiking, doing normal daily stuff et cetera. I do like divers, should I get the Sinn? I don’t yet have a chronograph-like model, should I get the Casio?? I’d like to read your thoughts and reasoning

    Think I would go for the Sinn UX on a bracelet.

    I've seen a lot of JDM Oceanus' in Japan. I like them but I've never been super struck by their designs. Great tech, really nice cases but very visually muted in person. A more quiet looking watch than the Sinn by a long shot. The Sinn is a beast.

    Thank you all for your opinions 🙂 I think the best way to go is “buy both,” but the Sinn will be the first 🙂

    How often and how much $$ do typical services cost @Sinn?

    Was also contemplating one.......
