"Great all around watch"
Verified Owner Comments: The U1 with the blue dial has quickly became my favorite daily wear watch. The shade of the dial is more light blue than I normally like for a watch face, but with the contrasting white indices, it makes for an extremely legible watch face. The lume is adequate, although it could be better.
The offset crown is a blessing on a watch of this size. I had reservations about it, but it works very well to keep the watch crown from biting into your arm when you perform daily activities. The only complaints that I have of the watch are the small date window and the strap. The date window is too small and would be much better if it was just ever so slightly larger. As for the strap, I’m not a fan of rubber straps, and that’s a personal preference.
I purchased a canvas strap in blue and then waxed it so it would be waterproof. It seems to work much better for me. Although the rubber strap that comes with the watch is high quality and has some very nice innovations such as the adjustability of the diver’s deployment. If you have doubts, I would say, buy it. You won’t regret this watch.
And Watch Buys is awesome to deal with. They really take care of their customers.
"The U1 is an excellent watch!"
Verified Owner Comments: This new U1 B is my second U1 the first is a Camouflage LE from 2016. The U1 looks like a big watch however it wears nicely even on a smaller wrist due to the short lugs and feels much more like a 42mm rather than a 44. On the beefy rubber strap the U1 doesn’t feel top heavy at all despite its height.
Both U1’s are in my regular watch rotation now along with my Panerai Sub 42 and a Blancpain Bathyscaphe 43 while much more expensive pieces sit on Orbitas in the safe. The U1’s are super durable yet their Sellita movements have been very precise and both are running +2-5 seconds per day.
For the money I seriously doubt that you can get a better automatic dive/tool watch and they looks good too. The team at Watchbuys is also excellent with their communication and professionalism.
Verified Owner Comments: This is my 2nd U1. I already had the black dial SDR. I've lusted after the blue dial since I first saw it. I got it with the blue strap & it's been on my wrist for the 2 weeks since I received it.
Watchbuys customer service is second to none!
"Amazing After So Long"
Verified Owner Comments: I have been wanting to experience the Sinn U1 first hand for a long time. I ended up grabbing the U1 B from Watchbuys and could not be happier. The watch is amazing, and Watchbuys answered all of my questions before purchase.
Shipping was swift and professional. Highly recommend both Sinn and Watchbuys!
