I got it last year from my wife for my birthday. I would assume its a recent model, but I don't actually know. It replaced the Tag Professional I've had for 15 years and never took off.

Yep. You can try the authorized US dealer (Watchbuys) or there has been mention of a Canadian place (Louis Black). Of course forums like Watchuseek always have lots of info and watches. See link below. Also you can try www.elitedealseeker.com and search for Sinn. Good luck! PM or call me if you want. I will be happy to tell you all I can.

PM sent.

There is not a scratch on this thing. New Glass, New Clasp and fresh service. I have not worn it since I got it back from BUSA.

Always be careful though. I had someone try to scam me out of $3200 on a watch I sold.

How do they try to scam you? I have two Tags that have never been worn that I bought a few years ago from LVMH - one of Tag Heuer's 2 US Headquarters is near my old place, and I became friends with a few employees there. I offered them to a board member, but if that doesn't work out, I may look to post them on one of those sites.

Buyer claimed that I sent him an empty box. I even overnighted it to the fucker. I sent it insured and he had to sign for it. Paypal ruled in my favor, then a week later I see another -$3200 in my account. SOB filed another dispute saying it was an unauthorized purchase. Paypal f'd me over because he shouldn't have been allowed to open another claim. I got my money, but I think they paid him too. The whole thing took a couple months to settle + he posted that I was a scammer on the watch forum. Tons of assholes out there.

Bob Ridley is supposed to be the best vintage watch guy, but if it has the 861 movement (69 is close and may have the older 321) nearly any decent watch maker will be able to fix it. DO NOT POLISH IT. DO NOT REPLACE THE DIAL. DO NOT REPLACE THE HANDS. DO NOT REPLACE ANYTHING. IT WILL BECOME WORTH LESS IF YOU DO THESE THINGS!

About a year ago I bought a Lumi Nox as a back up to my everyday Submariner. It is the 3080 Black Out. A tribute to the Navy Seals I believe. Turns out to be a great watch. Alot of compliments and I have been wearing it more than the Rolex. Think I paid around $300 for it.

That is a nice watch. Luminox makes great watches.

Love that watch - have it in Green and wear it 90% of the time!
