    A small gripe and not at all a criticism of the watch.
    It is one of my favourites and I find that more and more my collection of 12 watches in my drawer, is reducing to a rotation of 2/3 regulars, which coincidentally are other Sinns.
    Might be time for a clear out ūü§Ē

    Great looking watch.

    So many dial colours black to light blue.

    It's ticking a lot of boxes for me and could be my goto summer watch.

    Really want to get a bit of nice sunshine to try it out.

    A moment of madness led me to list this for sale (which soon became a procession of yes/no'ers and hassle). Well, I'm glad it didn't sell frankly.

    I had hoped someone from here had bought the Arktis that was on eBay recently. I think it sold for just over £1700

    Looked like a battered one to me. For the later 206. Wasnít it relisted after selling once also?.

    Certainly is. I purchased it direct from the sellers web shop though where it was £100 cheaper.

    Iíve had no issues with mine. Just look where the crown is. Not exactly the most exposed position unless youíre wearing the watch on your right wrist.

    Nothing there that really floats my boat I am afraid.
    I think the gold takes away from the tool watch nature of the U Series

    The T50 looks nice but could do with a bit of colour.

    Too much for me though and a 30 week wait on release day? Nope

  30. #1380
    Why does the T50 cost more on a silicon strap than a bracelet?

    Really like it but agree with ACG that it needs some colour.

    I donít think anyone makes straps out of silicon! Silicone rubber maybe?

  32. #1382
    Fair point, perhaps if they had it might explain why they're charging more for it than the ti bracelet.

    It might be a glitch? Bracelet option has always cost more from what I recall.

    A titanium bracelet will cost a fair bit more than a bit of rubber.

    One thing I would like to see is an improvement on the standard Sinn bracelet clasp. Some form of easy adjust like the new rubber strap clasp would be great. (Although not at the price Sinn are selling it for).
    I think the standard clasp works well on the older rattly folded end link bracelets but it’s a travesty on the newer screw link thicker examples.

    In a "one watch collection" that would be near the top of the list for me.

    Very nice. Good catch Andy.

    Great watch, usually leave the UTC hand hidden behind the hour hand on mine.

    I love Sinn watches but their clasps are a disgrace. Such poor quality in comparison to the competition.

    I understand what you mean Tony. Not the best but having owned a lot of Sinns, they are ok. In a weird way it adds to the tool watch feel, maybe thatís just me. Have never had an issue with one opening etc either. Quality wise, some of the Chinese watches put them to shame but at the end of the day it does the job.
    I suppose with what Sinn charge nowadays, it is definitely something they could improve.

    Yes, agreed. Perfectly functional but they spoil the ownership experience a bit (for me at least).

    Itís fortunate Sinnís rubber strap and large clasp is almost perfect IMO.

    I thought it would be a great idea to fit a Damasko bracelet on my Sinn UX.
    But it wonít fit without modifications. Plus the colour is different.

    Was worth a try.

    Bargain compared to some
    But yes it’s not cheap / offering anything remotely like value for money but since when is this hobby sensible?

    Like everything Sinn the prices have jumped huge amounts in the last couple of years. The rubber straps and clasps were reasonable not so long ago.

    As an aside
    I am looking at the Sinn 3006 as my next purchase but the wait time is eye watering.

    One thing I will say, while the quality could be improved I find Sinn clasps as comfortable as any brand out there. That to me counts for a lot. The Tudor BB58 clasp by comparison really dug into my skin and was the primary reason I flipped it.

    Same experience here! The first link after the Tudor clasp on the 6 side is my nemesis. Also find the sinn clasp well balanced with the rest of the bracelet, which is not always the case with other brands, although could arguably be a better engineered product

    I agree the Sinn clasps do seem very cheap (I've AliExpress watches with ones which look better made) but they do just work (to borrow a phrase from Apple) and I find Sinn bracelets amongst the most comfortable of any I've tried.

    I often swap watches off their bracelets onto leather, but all my Sinns are on their original bracelets.

    I'd never really thought about it but you have a point although the big clasp on my U1 rubber strap which was a recent purchase is very good. The clasps on the H link bracelets are definitely pretty poor.
