Never seen that one before, possibly a mod?

I believe it was Sgt. Bo or one of the other WUS guys. They had it modded.

I like it, though Mark's always superb photos probably don't hurt.

It looks nice. I have a regular U1 here too. Compare and contrast.

It's a million times better without the red.

I like the modded version fine, but the original is better.

Both look good, but original version with the non SDR bezel wins.

IMO it's much better modded. Cleaner design.

Modded doesn't scream "designed by lego" so it gets my vote

Ah ah thought the same :)
Sinn watches are very cool, but they have always a little something that doesn't work well with my taste.

I like it like that with the black bezel better. I like it the original way with the silver bezel.

Nice.
