Earlier today, I had the chance to visit the Sinn Boutique in Frankfurt.  I was with a friend who was interested in potentially buying a 103, so I took the opportunity to see if the just-announced blue pieces (T1 & T2 divers and the L.E. 103 A Sa B) were in stock: they were!  I think the bullk of what has been published on the web has been based on press photos, so I took the opportunity to take a few pictures.  Sadly, I do mean only a few shots because the Sinn store was hopping!  I was there at roughly 3pm and there were no less than 3 people (locals, not tourist groups) buying new Sinns.  So, time was limited but I hope you enjoy seeing the blues in “real” lighting.

Sinn 103 A Sa B

My take: The Sinn 103 A Sa B looks really nice in blue.  I’d possibly change the strap to make the dial “pop” a bit more, but the blue strap looked nice nonetheless.  It has a darker, electroplated blue dial that really radiates.

Sinn 103 Blue

The L.E. Sinn 103 A Sa B has a great blue bezel insert

The bezel reminds me a little of the Tudor Sumariners of yore.  At 1999 Eurosand as a limited edition of only 500 units, it is going FAST.  This watch was officially announced on August 20th and I was told that there are only a few left.  Perhaps some were allocated to foreign markets, but if you’re in the EU and want one, you’d better hustle.

Sinn T1 Blue

Sinn T1 & T2

My take: The Sinn T1 and T2 divers have always been under-the-radar watches from the brand, but they really are great looking and supremely comfortable due to a great case shape and their titanium construction.  The blue looks fantastic and is almost a matte gray/blue.  Note that the blue version loses the “barber shop” striping on its sweep second hand.  The T1 starts at 2490 Euros on leather and the T2 starts at 2290 Euros.  I own a T2 and if the blue version had been available, it would have been a horse race for sure!

I hope you enjoyed a very brief look at the new Sinn blue watches in non stock photo lighting.  They’re great pieces from a great brand!

    Hi Michael, thanks for the brief yet informative write up re the Sinn blue watches. If you don’t think the blue watch strap for the 103 A Sa B makes the watch “pop” what would you recommend?
    Cheers, Serge

    • Thanks Serge…personally I like a bit of contrast and would likely go with brown…but, this would look pretty good on a bracelt too, IMO.

    Michael, the 103 especially looks fantastic. I just bought a 103 St Acrylic from a fellow watch lover who traded up to the 103 blue. I wonder, did your friend purchase the 103?

    • Romeo…he did not…he’s actually pretty sold on the gray-dial, sapphire crystal 103. He’s not a “watch guy” per se, so needless to say, he’s taking his time!
