Arktis is a winner. But way too big for me.

The case should wear the same as the EZM 1.1 (although I am told the cases are not identical), which wears really well. Don’t write it off without trying it.

The Arktis is nice but I can't help but feel that Sinn pricing is out of control. The watch is pushing $4K. Wasn't the original Arktis about $2500? That blue Frankfurt chronograph is $4400 on a leather strap :scratch:

I know there was one Arktis titanium for sale here from Ben few years back. Heads me up if the owner is one of us here.

when I go back to pics of my Arktis...... and remember why I sold it -- I get the urge to shove an ice pick through my ear

1.1 actually worked ok for me. This one is even thicker, though. I’d hit it.

Yes. I would love to have it back but I searched and searched and nothing.

I want to be excited about the new arktis but I think it’s going to be way too big for what it is. The ezm 1.1 worked with a big case because of the big open dial. I’m not saying the arktis will look bad, but if I had one I would wish it was the OG size.

And the prices... long gone are days when Sinn was a bang for your buck watch. I can say that I’ll never buy a new Sinn at these prices and if I ever do buy it will certainly be used.

New 43mm Artkis is sexy, but I’d buy a Speedy for that money. I was hoping for an adjustable clasp this year, but they leave us wanting.

Nothing this year that will get my money.

I'm on vacation and saw that email, and I am in on the new Arktis. I missed out on the previous one, and I will not miss out on this one.

The Arktis is expensive, but damn it is hot. And compared to the Rolex and Tudor offerings this year, looks even better.

I love the Arktis. I just can’t justify it with the blue 103 and EZM 1.1 already in the box.
