Sinn T1B in the House

Post by spring-diver » Fri Mar 02, 2018 11:54 am

New arrival... Sinn T1B Full KitImage

I fell in love with this one last November at the WatchBuys Roadshow. So once again, Ed “Hoppyjr” sends me a link, he knew I wanted one Image Full kit at a smoking hot price! Thanks again buddyImage

And a huge thanks to the seller, Johnh1265, for working with me. Super smooth transaction Image

Needless to say, I’m blown away again!
At 45mm x 50mm it’s a large diver. However at 12.5mm thin and being made from grade 5 titanium, 71 grams, it’s ridiculously light and comfortable on the wristImage

Powering this Bad Boy is a top grade Soprod A10 movement. Running spot on in 24 hours! IImage this is a good one.

I know it’s only been 24 hours on the wrist, but I’m in love with the T series from Sinn. In fact, I’ll probably add the black dial version as well Image

Photo time🤡

Image

The curved case is so comfortable Image

Image

Image

Outstanding lume too!

Image

Bezel action is excellent as well. Very precise with zero play.

Thanks for looking Image

Thank you gentlemen for the compliments

After wearing it for a day, I’m surprised these are not more popular. The Soprod movement is spot on after 24 hours on the wrist. The lume is killer and the bezel action is superb! I’m guessing price & the hand set is what’s holding people back. Me, I love it

I’ll try the bracelet tomorrow

Cheers

Installed the bracelet this evening. What a FN PITA, nerve racking to say the least. I’m sure I’ll have to buy some spring bar tweezers to remove itImage

The good: It fits perfectlyImage Super comfortable & feather lite.

The bad: Color match is a bit offImage hopefully I can live with itImage

This one highlights the color difference Image

My t2b bracelet didn't match either. I thought it cheapened the watch due to the mismatch and how light it was. I think that watch is made for natos.

never sized nor wore the bracelet on mine, so never noticed shade mismatch.
vintage iso, zulu, nato worked great, and in that order of preference for me.

It’s a chameleon🤪 it changes colors depending how the light hits it, it’s a different texture than the case too. I really like it on the wrist thoughImage

Image

Here it looks darker than the caseImage

Image

I’ll keep it on this week to see if it improves... mentally Image

I just sent WatchBuys photos. Hopefully I can exchange the bracelet for a darker one

Now is the time to get a spring bar tweezer
