I love that one, and agree about the endless, pain inducing fauxtina discussion.

I was really unsure what the reaction would be to this one. The fauxtina complaints were inevitable. I thought there might be some complaints about the blue bezel.

It looks like it should be on an ugly LE Seiko. :thumbsup:

They should have done a proper insert.

Always liked 103 but fully anodized aluminum bezel in other than black is not for me

I actually find this watch to be pretty attractive despite the lume and the insert.

I love this watch but at nearly 3k i won’t even consider it.
I’ll save up a few hundred more and go for the BB58

That's the thing for me as well, Tudor killed a lot of competition including some Sinn models

Sinn pricing had a hand in that too. The 103 has little of the Sinn tech and and an off-the-shelf movement which makes it a little hard to justify the asking price.

Agreed. For me personally Sinn plays well in under 2K range in Euros.
