    Sinn Hour Glass LE U1

    Thoughts? No doubt they will sell out quickly, even at $4800.

    By far the best looking U1 yet.
    However....
    I couldn't live with PVD coating.
    I wouldn't give up $5000 for it.

    Sinn needs to De-"Koboldize" their price expectations.

    OTGabe you bad man you! How could you do this to me??? Now I have yet another watch to lust over. <sigh> I mean, it's not like I'm all set to bust out 5k bux for one right this minute. But the U1 is fast becoming one of my favorite watches, and really the only two things Sinn could do to make me love it even more are to fix those freaking Leggo hands & indices, and change the color scheme. Though they haven't yet fixed the former, they now appear to have fixed the latter rather handily. If it comes in a fully Tegimented version I may have to rob a bank or two before long...

    Thoughts? Striking but ultimately a bit contrived.

    Limited editions often strike me that way - if the design was a real winner, it would be in series production.

    Why on earth would they for this anyway. I suppose Hourglass set the price and not Sinn first of all and I guarantee they will sell out FAST as all the other Hourglass LE Sinns.
