My problem with Sinn is that there’s just something that grinds my gears in every single watch of theirs that I could like. The 103 is cool, but I can’t get past the friction-fit bezel. The 356? The „Flieger” moniker on the dial annoys me.
Sometimes I feel that there’s too much of something in a design of theirs, sometimes it just seems somehow wanting.
I admire their quality and specs, I just can’t see myself wearing anything from their current line-up.
Perhaps it’s just me already working for too long in watch retail, I’ve noticed that it’s becoming harder and harder for a watch to have me amazed. I saw a green Submariner, and I found it dull. I adjusted a bracelet in a Speedmaster Racing, and the watch was incredibly boring.
I’ve once heard that my work could give a WIS his daily fix. I suppose it’s not unlikely I’ve simply overdosed.
My manner of thinking, so you say, cannot be approved. Do you suppose I care? A poor fool indeed is he who adopts a manner of thinking for others!
