This thread sucks!

The only Offshore model that really speaks to me is the Scuba.  That's a great looking watch.  The other Offshores are nice but never interest me.

I had been eyeing a Sinn U1 for a few years now and an immenint price increase persuaded me to pull the trigger on one this morning. Now the waiting game begins...

Dear lord, I haven't looked at prices for these in years. I think I paid something like $3k for my 112 (new and from an AD).

I paid like $2800 for my 112. Now theyre around 5k on the grey market...I just cant believe how theyve jumped. Especially the SE historics...holy balls I wish i wouldve kept em a little longer and cashed in.

when i bought mine they were going for a little under 4k, in like new condition with full box and papers. i know there has been an MSRP jump since then, but i cant imagine they have increased that much on the secondary market. but i guess you never know.

I always liked the EZM3 or black bezel watches better from their diver selection but I haven't seen them in person. A bit like blackmail they way WB increased Sinn prices and kept sending out reminders of the impending deadline. Speaking of Sinn, does anyone else love the 103 Klassik?

I really like the EZM3 too and was having a hard time deciding between the two. Even now I am thinking of calling up my salesman and ordering the EZM3 as well and deciding which one to keep once they arrive but I know I would probably ending up keeping both... which I definitely don't need. Having seen them both in person last year (but unable to make a decision at the time, I ended up going with the U1 today because I prefer the duller finish of the submarine steel. It seems to make it a bit more unique.

That 103 is Sweeet.

I had the SDR version, and while it was damn near indestructible, in the end it didn't sing to me the way I thought it would. Couldn't put my finger on it. More than several of their models are quite nice looking though.
