    Re: UTS vs Sinn; Help me Choose

    I confess that I have never held a UTS in my hand, but have had three Sinns.

    I understand the UTS to be a great tank of a watch, well made, and well regarded. I get the impression that they are a pretty heavy hunk of metal which may be a selling point or a turn off depending on how you feel about such things.

    My experience with Sinn has really led me to put them at the top of my watch list. I have had the 787UTC, the UX, and just got the 140ST. They are all solidly made and, with the Tegiment process, have never shown a single scratch or swirl. Some have said that the PVD may wear away at some point, but my Sinn cases all look nearly brand new. I also find that they don’t wear especially heavy or clunky either, while still being a respectable size on the wrist. The Ar gas and Copper Sulfate May be a “wow” or a “meh” for you, but they are interesting technology that seems to work and certainly ups the cool factor if you are a watch tech nerd like me.

    The only potential weak point of Sinn for me is that their lume has never been nuclear. Don’t get me wrong, it’s OK. But with all that surface area and their tool watch cred, I was a little surprised at first at how average their lume was over time compared to something like the Omega 2254 which remains about the best lu,e I have ever seen.

    I think the styling between the two brands seems to be a bit different as well. So you may have a visual preference as well. I don’t think you can go wrong in either case.

    Oh, remember that the Sinn will really need to be sent back to Germany for service (or through whatever distributor is local to your area).

    based off looks/specs I'd choose the Sinn. Better design, looks like it'll be lighter on the wrist and it uses better technology. (tegimented Steel)

    2 solid picks though so it's a win win.

    Of course, it'll be lighter on the wrist.
    It's made of Ti, not tegimented steel. : )

    I am an owner of the UTS 1000M V2, and previously owned a SInn U1.

    Personally I much prefer the UTS to the Sinn. I prefer the comfort of the UTS, the down turned lugs fit me wonderfully. I prefer the brushed finish of the UTS over the blasted look of the Sinn. Based on my personal experience, when I received my Sinn - a U1, something has been sprayed/spilled on the crystal and it had damaged the outer AR coating. This was about 7-8 years ago, but at the time there were a few posts regarding this AR coating issue on another forum I followed. It really disappointed me and turned me off of the Sinn. I am sure Sinn was made aware of this issue and has fixed it, but I could never get myself to purchase another one. Otherswise, you will read countless great reviews on all Sinn models. as they truly are a great watch, just partial to my UTS.

    Haven’t got a UTS but Sinns are so good that I feel they easily make up for that shortcoming.
