    As said above, the H-link bracelet is built more for function than for finish with it being practical without being fussy. The best feature is the torx-like small screws that hold the links together, this makes it easier to DIY adjust the bracelet length.

    Edit - it's Damasko that use torx heads, Sinn are allen!

    The one I offered for sale looked top quality to me.

    I can't really compare the quality of the bracelet to much - My Speedmaster Pro has always lived on a leather strap, I took my B-1 off its bracelet the day it arrived and I don't have any Rolexes, etc.

    I would say, though, that they seem consummate with the rest of the watch and are generally very comfortable.

    I often switch watches on bracelets to leather, simply because I don't find them comfortable, but all 3 of my Sinns are still on their bracelets and, while I did try my Arktis on leather for a bit, I thought it looked and felt better on the bracelet.

    In my experience all Sinn bracelets are very well made however the micro adjustment is not great on some clasps
    The bracelet clasp on the U series is ok, but the finer link bracelet on the 903 etc has none!
    Others are in between.

    I've found the bracelets on my UX, and U1 (and on my briefly owned U2) to be perfect for the watch, not flashy, but robust, solid and hard wearing. Very well made too.

    Photo of my 2011 Sinn UX SDR, itís been owned by a few on the forum and since Iíve have it has had a service & battery change and is good as new - a fantastic, accurate, Ďgrab and goí watch.
    Bizarrely most of the Chinese fake UXís have a mechanical movement so the quartz real ones are easy to spot not just because of the awesome oil-filled legibility but the stop/go hand movement is quite distinctive.
    Mine is on a Da Luca 3-ring NATO strap.

    I'm developing a bit of a thing for the 857 UTC, on a bracelet it's more or less perfect.

  30. #480
    Am I right in thinking that the 857 uses the same bracelet as the U1, U2 and UX?

    I've subscribed and enjoyed your videos.

    Owned my Sinn U2 for 12 years and worn it virtually every day. Now have U1000 and 103 as well. U2 is my "beater" watch, still looks great.

    The strap looks great. Sets the dial off.

    My only current Sinn, a nice classic 103 ST SA, although the acrylic is the purist choice, I am a sucker for double AR crystals!

    Hard to find and the 206 seems, if anything, to have hardened 203 prices.

    Interesting that the last couple shown have been on leather, I put the majority of my watches on leather if they come on a bracelet, but I didn't like my Arktis on leather, so I put it back on its bracelet - I find all 3 of my Sinn bracelets some of the most comfortable I've tried.

    I know what you mean and I am usually a bracelet fan myself. Here it is on bracelet, however I still prefer leather, I think.
