Quick take: Sinn in Blue
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.
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 & 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!
