Used but excellent condition Sinn U1 originally bought from us in 2009. It has just had a full service with a brand new complete bezel and comes on a brand new, unsized and unworn Sinn silicone strap. All around excellent condition, there are some marks to the anti reflective coating on the crystal, which are only visible at certain angles. It comes complete with box and papers, and two clasps for a silicone strap, booth in used condition. The U1 and U2 cases are made from stainless steel that used in the construction of the outer hull of submarines. The steel was by procured by Sinn from a steel supplier to Emden GmbH, one of Germany’s North Sea shipbuilding yards who construct submarines from the very same steel. This submarine steel is not only extraordinarily sea water resistant (PRE value up to 38), it possesses also the highest anti magnetic quality. The Uni directional ratchet operated rotating bezel is Tegimented where the steel can be hardened on up to 1500 Vickers. Compared to regular 316 L stainless steel which is hardened to approximately 220 Vickers. The indices are machined directly into the bezel without the use of bezel inserts, which can corrode or come loose at deep depths. The watch has the bezel hardened to 1,500 Vickers by the use of Sinn’s tegimented treatment in the Sinn laboratory.
