    Default Buying SINN from THG or direct..?

    Hi guys, I'd just like to find out the pros and cons of buying a Sinn from THG or direct from Frankfurt. I'm looking at buying a Sinn U1 SDR but I'm not sure if it's alright to make a purchase from Sinn Factory direct.

    Also is there anything I should check if I was to purchase it 2nd hand i.e. condition and authenticity etc.

    Hope you guys won't mind helping me out with your experience and opinions. Thanks for sharing and spending the time!!

    buying direct - cheaper. however, when come to servicing, THG may not be so interested in servicing you.

    buy from THG, can always go back to them, more willing to serve you.

    anyway, depending on which model you looking, you can always try to go to their sale to see if any model u fancy is on sale. rest assured the u series is seldom or never seen on sale.

    Ic thanks for sharing bros!

    Another curiosity is what would you check for if purchasing 2nd hand from another forum member (i.e. condition, serial no. and authenticity etc.)?

    So sorry I had to drop another question..

    on the case back, u should be able to see the serial number and model. there should be a metallic card or paper depending on series to match. there should also be a mini cd and a booklet.

    do note that most of the models have the argon gas indicator and any authentication has to be sent to germany. if it is a U1, can be check locally. pricing wise, please check with THG.

    Hey Mmax, kindly pm me if you do manage to buy a new Sinn direct. For what i know, it is not possible. I've tried, but due to sales territory restrictions, if buying new, they would only ship to an address within territory. For Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand; covered by THG

    Default Buying a Sinn in Singapore

    Hi. I'm planning to go to Singapore next month and I want to buy a Sinn 356. I know that the Hour Glass is the authorized reseller of Sinn watches there. Is the price difference compared to Europe/ Germany significant? Or just a few dollars differece?
