Where do you see that? I just looked and I see 19 pieces still remaining.

Looks like there's still a chance for some DWCers to grab one.

19 left. Once Jason's article hits Hodinkee I imagine they will sell out quickly.

Watchbuys site says in stock, ships immediately. It seems like some serial numbers from the latest delivery batch weren't claimed.

Out of curiosity I tried putting 20 of them in my cart, and it said they have 8 available in stock. Perhaps they are done taking reservations and received the remaining balance of the 100 watches. Looks like you can have on your wrist by tomorrow morning.

Rob told me Sinn wasn't shipping these in sequential order or by date reserved. Still waiting for Sinn to ship #11

So they must have gotten in 8 of the unclaimed numbers.

Which seems good for WB, since the article just hit.

If I could swing it I'd buy another.

#46 showed up at my office today. Changes from regular U1 are subtle, but have a significant overall effect. Really nice job on the design. :thumbsup:

My only complaint is that the bezel action is fairly loose. Might be able to adjust it if I pop off the "captive" bezel.

I just broke down and ordered one myself from their "in stock" stash, but since I ordered after 4 pm ET it looks like it won't ship until tomorrow.

Just tried to tighten the bezel by bending the click spring prongs. Made it a bit stiffer to turn but didn't help the looseness much. I think the looseness comes mainly from the shape of the ratchet teeth which I can't do much about. I checked my early U1-T and the bezel feels about the same. Some threads on WUS indicate that Sinn has stated that the looseness is by design to reduce debris collection.

Overall an awesome watch.

Thought I'd chime in on bezel looseness. I also found it the case with the U1 Pro but having just finished a weekend diving with the new Bell & Ross Diver, I have come to understand and appreciate a looser bezel. The B&R got pretty gummed up with dried salt after diving to the point where I had to flush it immediately after diving for fear it would get stuck entirely. I've found this with other watches with tight tolerance bezels. I actually think I'd prefer a good friction bezel or looser ratcheting one. Or if it's a snugly fitting one, at least give it a tall profile so you can grip and rip to free it from the debris.

The newer ceramic Rolex's tend to freeze up due to tight clearances that get jammed up when salt water comes into play. So good point about the U1 bezel design. :salute:

Totally agree. My Pelagos had the best bezel action I've ever experienced, but gums up easily, especially in salt water.
