Updated: SINN U1 Black “Limited Edition” Model (Prototype)

UPDATE: I guess after all that ranting in the earlier post the polite thing to say here would be that I was underwhelmed. As advertised, Hourglass and SINN launched the latter’s latest re-invention of the popular SINN U1 watch at Paulaner’s Brahaus in Singapore last evening. Cutting to the chase and leaving out the bits on the scantily-clad SINN models and the several invitees who were tripping over one other in the buffet queue, here’s the prototype in all its understated glory.

I checked and I wasn’t the only person who found the scheme strikingly similar to at least two other designs already out there. But who cares! ‘Stealthy’ designs rule! Stealth is clearly the way forward in horological design, since watchmakers can now save money on paint! (technically they would still have to buy grey paint – ed.) Stealth is good as most people should now tell time from their mobile phones instead of their watches! I’m relieved. One truly can do no worse than sticking with the original SINN U1 with its unbeatable value for money (but I know 399 other persons will disagree).
