Sinn crowns

I was curious about the crown sealing on the EZM 9, 1.1, and U1, so I asked Sinn. We know the Rolex Triplock uses 5 gaskets, but Sinn advised they use 3; one in the crown and two in the tube. This seems better than many brands as most use only one. In fact, the Grand Seiko divers only use a single g...

Re: Sinn 2018 Basel Releases

That does look nice. I bet it looks enormous on the wrist. 43mm will be perfect for me and at 10.6mm thin, I bet it’ll be ridiculously comfortable on the wrist too! I’ll be putting a deposit down in a few weeks for the strap version & silicon/large clasp[emoji106] Hopefully I’ll have it by mid summ...

Re: New NAFT with Kanji

You've got to wonder how this company stays afloat.
It's a front for Mexican narco terrorists.
It's gotta be something like that, probably the same org. that owns CraZy dEaLZ dude - not in business to sell watches :lol:

That dude cracks me up! I can’t see how he sells anything.
