Like the Moonswatches, I think they're interesting ideas from a business standpoint, and they certainly sell well in their target demographics...

I just wouldn't be able to bring myself to spend $300-$500 on a plastic watch, regardless of the name on the dial.

I have a new favorite watch. I’ve been wearing this one for a few months now but have not posted a pic of it up until today.

The Sinn 206 ST AR is one hell of a watch.



The used but in great shape 206 I acquired came with the “heavy bracelet” which has brushed main links with polished center sections. It IMO pairs with the 206 case better than the “fine” Sinn OEM bracelet option. The lighter fine bracelet didn’t do as good a job keeping the heavy chronograph case in place on my wrist.





The moisture absorption capsule is also another unique design element unique to Sinn. Sort of like how an IPhone watch has a capsule that indicates moisture absorption levels the Sinn 206 has an EXTREMELY well built 300m wr case with pushers that can be operated underwater and a capsule that absorbs moisture over years of use and indicates when the next service is necessary.

The darker the shade of the blue dot the closer the watch gets to requiring a service at Sinn in Germany.

Awesome watch Maestro! I love that orange and black dial. KTM colors! Cool

The colors on the bezel insert & dial also kind of remind me of my favorite holiday, Halloween. But it is very subtle so it works. This model Seamaster has tempted me quite a bit over the years.

A sized down white dial variant Planet Ocean has also come dangerously close to being added to my shrinking collection of watches. That design is timeless!

VERY cool watch. Enjoy it! Smile

Beautiful watch Stickman! I think Sinn puts out some of the best "tool" watches out there. A few days ago, I decided to scratch that chronograph itch. It's going to take a couple of weeks to arrive, it's of German origin too and I hope it wears as well on me as yours does on you!

Great choice! The orange accents really "pop" on that diver!

Maestro, I have to say that's the first Seamaster I can say I really like. Great looking watch.

Agreed, the Speedmaster is more my style, but love the black/orange.

Thanks all. I have never enjoyed owning a watch as much as this Planet Ocean.

I sure love that watch. I almost picked that over my Seamaster, but the Seamaster fits my skinny wrist better.

I am glad this is being done. I like the idea of these brands trying to stay around. I will by a Moonswatch someday. The Mission to the Moon and the Mission to Mercury. I see Tag got together w/ Kith and is bringing back the old plastic various colored watches again. Like it!!!

Ok. A question for Stickman and our other watch fiends or modders. I have a beat up old Invicta 9403. It works great, keeps time, and the case is all good. However; the bezel is chewed up bad and the glass/sapphire is blown up. I want to see if I can get a new sapphire and bezel at one of the mod parts shops online. Everything seems to measure the same as in my orange Seiko I got from Stickman(sorry, don’t remember the model #).

Thanks!!!

The Red Bull F1 cars have Kith Heuer on the car this week. Was wondering what that was about.

It looks sharp, man, and that price isn't terrible.

I really like that TS1 bracelet on it.




God bless America.

Check out Crystal times USA or Namoki mods. They might have a crystal for your Invicta.

It's TITANIUM! So light, you won't even know you have it (on).

Yep. I like these "super engineer" style bracelets. The issue usually is that they're quite heavy. But that is obviously not a concern in titanium.
