    New Sinn 103 A in blue, what you think?

    Tempted to put this one on pre order. Been wanting to add a blue dial to the collection for a really long time. How you guys liking this one? http://www.watchbuys.com/store/pc/Si...ion-4p2614.htm

    Only drawback right now for me is the 17mm thickness. If it was a manual wind like the older Sinns credit card would of been whipped out of the wallet already despite the thickness.

    I love the dial but I stopped reading the website once I saw that 17mm thickness. I've tried that before and could never get used to something that thick.

    As others have said, the sapphire version is a bit of a cooking pot. The St with acrylic is a slightly more manageable 15.5mm.

    Suspect it's the water resistance but I haven't been able to see what it is. I had a Ball Hydrocarbon NEDU that was about that thick with a rating of 600m, shock resistance and antimagnetic with probably accounted for it. Agree it was too thick so I traded it away, but that's why it was so thick.

    I like it, but not as much as the copper dial one you had prior.
