SINN 103 Ti TESTAF on mesh....
 
Traded my Omega Moonwatch for this excellent pilot watch from Sinn, the 103 Ti TESTAF with a milanese mesh from my Squale diver....

I hadn't really paid any attention to the Sinn range, other than the U1, but this is a really nice piece. I don't know whether it's the black mesh bracelet that makes it look so good the way it matches the dial or just the overall blend. Whatever it is I think it beautiful to look at.

Nice display pose as well!

thanks! I had the oem black leather with orange stitching on it but it just looked a tad cosmetic. The black mesh really worked for some reason and it takes part in the rotation group! Being titanium, it is quite light, though 17mm thick. My Seiko MM feels like a monster in comparison, yet I still love the MM.

Love the 103 with the Classic Sinn toolwatch look. Enjoy that fine timepiece!

Absolutely stunning watch.

I have the EZM1 model, these now fetch big bucks with the Sinn collectors.

Yes, I noted that EZM1 price is holding. Seems like it has a strong following. Is it the clear dial for a chrono? The Destro aspect is not my cuppa tea though.

I just obtained a EZM2 from Japan, is was listed as non working so i will have it sent over to Sinn in Germany for the full deal.

They still have a NOS bezel in stock with the black insert that i will instruct them to fit.

Nice grab! congrats on adding another SINN to the collection.

uncleluck 05-26-2017 06:05 AM

That's a lovely piece!

Looks excellent with the black mesh bracelet

My EZM 2 is now in Germany awaiting service.

I asked them to fit a new Bezel with the black insert, and they will also supply a bracelet with solid links.

that will look really nice! I found installing the bracelet with solid end links to be rather easy!

Just received my EZM 2 after the full works in Germany, had a new bezel fitted as i dislike the silver insert, and had them supply the correct bracelet.

Have now fitted a black Isofrane to preserve the bracelet.

thianwong1 04-08-2018 03:48 PM

The excitement builds! hahah! I am happy with my SINN!

pollyc 04-08-2018 03:57 PM

So would I be Thian, the ti bracelet is my favourite option.

That's a hell of a good looking watch

thianwong1 04-13-2018 04:16 PM

Thanks! The mesh/SINN combo seems attractive to many. I do have the ti bracelet and the OEM leather strap, but the milanese black mesh just works !

Bemopti123 05-08-2018 11:27 PM

Most Sinns are gorgeous and this one reaffirms this fact.

Chazman1946 05-09-2018 02:26 AM

You don't lose much money flipping a Sinn. I have owned three separate ones, the 556i, the 856 and the U1, everyone one of them I sold with no problem, getting back almost exactly what I paid for them.
