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.

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.

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.

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 !

Most Sinns are gorgeous and this one reaffirms this fact.

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.
