Have to say I prefer the regular U2 Black.

I think the dial of the U2 W looks a bit empty without the GMT scale. And I'm not sure I see the point of the W's stealthy black case and a dial you can see from space ;)

I had a U2 Black and sold it. After a while the dial appears a busy to me.

I should have bought one when I was in Germany. I may do it next time.

I had an 857 UTC for years so maybe I got used to the busier dial. Being in red seems to make the UTC dial even less conspicuous.

Love the look but tried a Domasko with this color scheme and never wore it.

I was never really enamored with the U2 until I saw it in person at a Watchbuys event a few years ago and thought it looked much better in the metal.

This was not worth all the build up. A guessing game for what is essentially a different colorway of a watch that’s been around for years?

They wanted to do something since there is still quite a bit of excitement about the U50. If they just dropped it on the site it may not have gotten much attention.

I think they should have done this with the U50 and just made this one a standard “here’s another color” release.

Once the initial buildup of U50 demand is done, it will be interesting to see how U1/U2 sales numbers are impacted..... especially given that the U1 has been on the market for what, 15 years?

My guess is that now that they have the U50 case, they will create many variants much like they did with the original U1.

That's because it is a dud. This was a poor design execution from a brand that generally does design/LEs well.

I wouldn't call it a dud,it's just different,I had a White U1 which took me a lif time to resell.

That would probably sell quickly now.

My Meisterbund III (The one with the green nylon strap) is a U2.

This is my current Sinn collection minus the Dark Star. This U2W will replace the Dark Star in this picture. :love:

I have nothing against white dialed watches, but man is that thing white. Like Herb Tarlek belt white.
