Sinn Wall Clock for US/Canada

Post by CGSshorty » Sun Sep 17, 2017 5:26 pm

As I am sure most of you know, Sinn has released a very cool radio control wall clock. The only issue is the radio control feature does not work in the US and Canada, as it cannot pick up the signal from Germany. At the price they are asking, it would be nice if this feature worked.
WatchBuys would like to have some made that will work in the US/Canada, but the available movement that picks up the Ft. Collins radio control signal does not emulate a sweep seconds like the German version does. Instead, it ticks like a regular quartz movement.
The other possible movement would be manually set with the simulated sweep seconds hand.
Rob asked me to find out which movement most people would prefer. As of this time WatchBuys has no idea what the price will be for either movement, so just vote for which movement you would prefer.

Make sure you go to a browser and vote in the poll. I don't think Tapatalk displays polls.

It's a poll. A pole is what you sat on last night. There is a difference.

update: spoke with Tim at the OC RS about the clock: they will be carrying the german version of the clock soon, the minimum cost for a custom version was too high.

Thanks for the update. I am sick and couldnt make the watchbuys event yesterday to ask. I'd really like this outside by my pool in a semi covered spot, but in reality I'll probably keep it inside.
