Bingo! Same hour markers as well , the minute markers are a hair longer on the T50

are you saying that the hands of the U50 Hydro are not proportioned tomorrow case and dial the same as the original UX?
I’m saying they look too small in relation to the dial.

The UX hands were substantial and worked well with the dial. These look like T-Rex hands to me. I wanted to like the T50 too, but same dinky hands.

Dinky hands probably good if you’re getting a Image but not when Sinn does them on this watch.

Just heard a rumor from a German Sinn collector that Sinn is indeed going to have an adjustable clasp coming out. Said he heard it from his local dealer … “adjustable without tools”.


May not be worth anything but thought I’d share.

Rumor is true….. Actually like the Spring offerings:
The 103 Chrono and the Lumed dial👍

Yep, though (unless I"m missing something) you have to buy the whole bracelet to get the clasp, and nothing for the U50 series. Hopefully it's not that cut and dry.

I do like most of these offerings, and the lume dial looks really nice.

I like the lume dial, but not sure I like it $3640 worth.

It’s funny you say that. The U1P almost had U2 hands, but I didn’t want to change the dial markers, so the original hands worked better.

The U2C is a not a GMT, and is pretty much the perfect U2. I doubt Sinn will recreate it as they are very good about protecting the scarcity of their LEs done with partners.

Yes very happy…
But I want to be able to buy clasp separate from bracelet. I’m guessing it may be an option down the road.
Would love one for my U50P.

Love the lume dial U50.

As much as I want to love the U50 Hydro something just seems a little off. The original UX looks perfect and has a more aggressive feel. Something is lacking from the new 50 hydro.. I think maybe the smaller indices?
I’d like to see it in person.

And really… you’d think the new watches being released would come with a new clasp. Not that I’m in the market for a new Sinn but I would hold off on any new model until the adjustable clasp was an option.

I just talked to WB. They said that the clasp will likely only be available with the bracelet and that bracelets for other models will be rolling out over time. I asked if they would be sending updates to those on the mailing list, as the new bracelets become available, and he said yes.

Right. It’s a shame they won’t. That U50 almost looks like it so I thought of the wish list I had for the longest time.

I’m sure that’s a watchbuys decision. Money.

I bet if I send a watch in to Sinn Germany they will add a new clasp with service- if available.

Someone on Reddit visited Sinn germany to check out the new offers. He said you can buy the clasp separate there.

It’s either a supply issue and Sinn made the decision that you have to buy a whole bracelet from Watchbuys or it’s a Watchbuys decision to not offer it.

It’s just the angle of how he’s holding them. Same watch different finish.

I received the non-Tegimented bracelet today for the UX. Mine was delivered on rubber, so I needed the complete bracelet. I did speak with one of the Watchbuys guys last Wednesday and he seems do think they will eventually offer just the clasp.

First impressions:

Typical Sinn build quality, good.

Micro adjust has a nice amount of adjustment, which seems to be maybe just shy of one full link (based on my guess).

Twin-button release like Omega, but the “click” on close is very soft. Looking at the latching mechanism, it seems secure and strong, but I’d still prefer the older flip lock closure but with the micro-adjustment feature.

Overall I’m happy. I have never been able to get a good fit with Sinn bracelets, as I do expand & contract throughout the day. This seems to solve the issue. Hopefully a Tegimented U50 clasp (only) is next.
