A UX LE isn't something we have discussed. We have a lot of ideas that get bounced around, but that has never come up. I'll give it some thought.
An all black UX with crown at 1000, gray minute/hr hand, black with gray tip seconds hand, and gray indices on dial and bezel would be terrific.

It's exactly as I hoped. I prefer it to the black bezel, but it's good to have both. It's so easy to switch.

Prefer the pro bezel too by a good margin. Seems more cohesive.

Not on the first look. She might looks better in normal daylight condition.

I think I prefer the stock dial/red hands with the naked bezel. The bezel screws make it an easy swap though, so if you like it than keep it that way.

I think if you had someone change the red hash marks on the bezel to black, that'd be in the spirit of the U1P and would look awesome.

That said, even as is, I probably still prefer the naked bezel to the black bezel. But I have always preferred the naked bezel to SDR on Sinn divers.

It looks fine either way. Looks like a u1. That said I prefer the black bezel for sure.

That looks way better than I thought.

Larger Red Sinn logo is more balanced
Blacked out depth rating looks great
Gloss black hands match the gloss black bezel paint
No date is cleaner
Domed crystal looks much better in person than the flat crystal
Perfect use of red/black without being over powering. Regular U1 has too much red

I'm a black Sinn fan, but that looks pretty cool, too.

I prefer the original bezel by a longshot... naked bezel changes the whole look and purpose, may as well get a regular U1 :scratch:

Get that standard U1 bezel blasted naked except for the 1-15 markings, then leave the horizontal hashes under all the rest of the numbers and it would look stealth.

I like it fine. But I love the U1P the way Chris intended.
