Catch and release for me.
Owned for 3 days, wish I could pull it off.
If you like beefy watches with wrist presence for days, and stark, all-business legibility, this is for you.
It is 11 years old according to the warranty card.
Its in incredible shape for its age- the fully tegimented case and bracelet are showing remarkably little wear.
Either it was really babied or barely worn for much of this time, or the tegiment really is as bombproof as everyone says.
Probably some combination of the two.
I don’t know the service history.
The watch runs a tad slow, between minus 8 and minus 4 seconds per 24 hours in normal wear (timed using the chronograph and the watchcheck app over about 60 hours)
The copper sulphate (anti-humidity) capsule seems to be maybe halfway through its life?
Kind of hard to tell honestly.
This has the ETA/Valjoux 7750, as it was produced far before Sinn switched to the Sellita clone movements.
I have included the previous seller’s pictures in this ad.
The last 3 pictures are mine (note this does not include the strap shown in the last picture)
Includes the box and papers.
Honestly the box is way worse condition than the watch.
including a (non-Sinn as far as I can tell) thick leather strap also (shown in pic #2)
These have been discontinued- watchbuys still has some of this model left, but only on the leather strap, and for a lot more than you’ll spend here.
