Sinn U1 Ref SI-255 Diver's Watch

The Above Pictures was taken by Samsung Note III

This is a massive watch for deep Sea Diving, a head to head competitor of Rolex Submariner Ref 116610LN.  Function should be very similar but price is just a 24% of a Rolex!

Well, I was deceived by the Titanium look of the watch but it was made with super sturdy steel. This watch weighs 190 gram with metal strap, may be it helps to pull you sink faster in sea.

The Finish is superb, colour and arrangement of the hour minute hands is perfect, easy to read.

Price is just HKD$15,000 net if you had  a chance to buy in Munich. But in HK the list price is HKD$28,000.

This might be another choice for your diving gear if you have had already Rolex.
