Sinn BLU1 LE

Post by gwells » Fri Jul 21, 2017 6:33 am

Collaboration with UK AD Page & Cooper of a 50 piece Limited Edition (35 - steel and 15 black)

https://www.pageandcooper.com/blog/intr ... sinn-blu1/

overall, i really like this. the giant BLU1 on the dial, not so much, but everything else.

Too many colors for my taste.

This is how blue is done

I love the blue dial and would have loved a SDR bezel.
How much are they ?

the more i look at it the more I'm becoming not a fan of the colors....the red accent on blue isn't a great look.

Sinn doesn't seem to have an issue with doing any stupid LE as long as there is funding to back the project.

Maybe we should self fund a Sinn LE with a dick and balls hour/minute hand.

Homage? To what?

I like it, especially the black one, but it's too bad that they just did a dial swap. It would look way better with all white hands and make the blue lettering smaller.

I'm fairly confident they'd do it. We just need 50 participants.

Don't like the fading, don't like the name, don't like the red.

It even has a stupid jarring bit of mis-colored text on the bottom half.

well, it pulls from the dial gradient, but since that's the only thing common between them, i think the word "homage" is overboard. took one design cue is legit.

So it took the most distinctive aspect of the watch, copied it almost one-for-one, and then released it? Get some standards people.

I don't hate it, but this is exactly the opposite of what I tried to achieve with the U1-P.
I "unpimped" the U1. They turned it into Dolemite.

OK. Lets go with a dial that fades from brown to black. We can call it the Balls Deep Shit Diver.
