There's a huge Steinhart following on WatchUSeek. You may want to post a WTB on their Sales Corner. With 400,000 members, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Saw this the other day and thought it was a very cool idea. http://www.breitling.com/en/emergency/ don't have the need or the cash but I like the idea if I where ever to do overlanding.

Great, so now I am looking at Sinn watches. I wish I would have looked harder before I bought my latest Breitling.


Where did you get your Sinn, and what did you pay? I am seeing that one for about $1950.

The only US distributor is a company called WatchBuys out of Raleigh, NC. Unless you can go to Germany. I read and read about Sinn on the watchuseek forum prior to purchasing. Unfortunately the only way to see these watches in person is to attend one of the WatchBuys shows or you buy it and have 3 days in your home to decide to keep it. I love my Sinn, definitely starting an addiction.

WatchBuys does not have a brick and mortar storefront; they are internet only.

I only have one Sinn that is still in production, and it's mounted in my 110.



It's next to an EZM1 LE #61/250 reissue. I have another EZM1 that is one of the 22 issued to the German Customs Enforcement SWAT Team (ZUZ):



And an oil filled chronometer grade thermo-compensated quartz EZM2 that is one of 40 that were issued to German GSG9 Commandos:



I guess you could say I've been a Sinner for a long time.

Yes, I posted two times in the WTB section. Both times propositioned with fake offers. Three have traded hands there since I started looking so guess I need to remain patient.
