Cool. U2.
“To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman

I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn't use numbers or moving hands
It always just says now
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

Hard pass. U1Pro still the best U series.

I dont remember the white dial u1 moving too quickly way back when.

Price consistent with the U series?
I like it. I had a U1 White and flipped it. I prefer this design.

Finally!!! I missed out on the U1W. I think this U2W looks better and is tegimented, too. This is will complement my Sinn collection. :love:
It's a beautiful world! Gerald.

The standard U2 is $2760 on strap. U1 on strap is $2080. Neither with a Tegimented case, however.

Could you imagine if they did this with a lume dial?

63 serial numbers left. 37 gone in about 2 hours. Not bad.

It's more than the U series, but not an apple to apple comparison. I can't imagine spending $3k+ on a UX. I paid $1300 for my UX-S on bracelet 3 months ago - mint.
The only thing that may keep this from tanking is the LE status, but I am not in love with the design. Lume dial would've been way more appealing for the price. I had a white U1 years ago and found it too jarring.

Looks good but the price is high and no gmt function. I think the U1W looked better. Maybe the price will go down in the pre-owned market and then I'll snag one.

I think this idea in concept is good, but in reality it falls a bit flat for me.
