You know Ron, how many people out there are envy of you because of this piece. Congrats!! It looks like a wonderful creation from Sinn. I like it much better than 756

The very FIRST of the 757 production and "Basel Neuheit" was sold to Ron on Friday. That's cool huh ?? Congrats Ron, it is indeed a very nice watch!

:-! Well done Ron! The 757 is a very tempting piece indeed and judging
from the reactions on different forums Sinn has landed a solid Numero Uno hit.

Best regards

Thomas

Nice catch Ron, can I have the old worn out Bund you were wearing?

Seriously, nice meeting you in person yesterday and congratulations on your newest baby!

"Old worn Bund"? :-| That's one of my most valued watches!

Just kidding :) . Nice meeting you too.

I must say though, when I went out of my hotel room yesterday evening, in the not so friendly at night Frankfurt Haubtbahnhoff area, I wondered if it was wise to walk out with a valuable watch. And to be honest, I'd still rather have the 757 stolen then the Sternzeit Reguliert. But I felt lucky, and wore them both anyhow.

What's the price of 757 :-s Also, as I already asked in the meeting thread, is 757 dial smaller than 756? Or bezel does this to look like?

The price is between 1200 and 1300€ - can't recall the exact price anymore. The dials are the same, they look different because of the bezel.

:oops: Should we have warned you about the Bahnhof-area? :-d Truely not one of the savest neighboorhoods in Frankfurt ;-) (Nor is Rödelheim, where Sinn is...)

Without reducing its value, and since Sinn is open in new ideas, I wonder if there could be a 757 like that, or a UTC version, which could have a non diver-counter bezel, but a second time zone instead. :think: I'd love to see it too.

That's the first thing I thought. If I could make a new Sinn model, using existing parts, it would be a 757 with Diapal, two timezone movement. I would keep the black dial, and a 0-12 bezel would be optional.
But I've learned from Mr. Schmidt that we only need to ask. As long as we are starting from a standard model (as opposed to the limited editions) they are willing to modify it to the customers wishes. Even changing movements. So who knows? I may ask them to make me one:) .

Congrats on the first 757. That is one serious looking tool watch and I like it. The bezel bring some nice form to the 756.

Well, the quality of my 757-pictures doesn´t match Ron´s, but I think it´s still worth to post a pic of the other one sold yesterday. For those interested in buying a 757: the price with leather strap is € 1.270 including german VAT of 19 percent. A bracelet will be available in a couple of weeks, probably just in time for the BASELWORLD WATCH SHOW in April 2007.

Since the 757's 22mm lugs look almost identical to the U1's, U2's, and UX's I wonder if the bracelet for the U's work with it. The bracelet for the U looks like the same color of the new 757 also. :think:
