    Question Sinn UX

    Has any one any experiance on the Sinn UX.
    It seems like a cheap way to get hold of a
    Thermoline movement (it utilises the ETA 955.652).
    I wonder if the change of battery is a problem
    because of the silicon oil that the watch contains.
    The local watchdealer will probably be unable to
    change the battery because of that.

    Here is a link to the Sinn site.

    Haven't seen one, no. Oil filled watches are an interesting concept. Not only do they enable incredible depth ratings (way beyond what a living human would ever need), they also allow a clearer view of the hands at high angles underwater (a somewhat more practical benefit).

    It is undoubtedly true that a local watchmaker could not change the battery. You'd probably have to return it to Sinn. Does Sinn specify a battery life? I'd imagine that it may draw a little more power to run in order to move the seconds hand through the somewhat resistive medium.

    The watch must be returned to Sinn for the battery/oil change. The battery has a life expectancy of seven years.
