I've just returned from holiday and see Decksurgeon has announced the Sinn Ultimate U-A being initially released through THG. You can jump to the thread here:

https://www.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=331210

This 47 mm cased U1 has been in the works for some time and is being made available to us Sinn Forum members for our Sinn WatchUSeek Limited Edition project (see the Sinn Forum Watch sub-forum for details). Please take a moment to vote on which case you'd like to see our white lume dialed fully tegimented U LE to have.

With this final piece of the puzzle we should be able to get this project moving again...finally.

47mm just seems... um... big.

Heck, 44mm is an imposing watch as it is.
Amen... 47mm is an occasional watch that won't fit under a shirt sleeve. The 44mm can be a daily wearer.

I would like to see exact layout as U1 but with 47mm case and crown at 10 o'clock

Main concern with a 47mm wouldn't be the watch size as much as the $$$ pirce $$$ size increase. If you could make it forthe same price as the 44mm then I would change my vote to have something a little different in my winder.

Standard size U1 is perfect for me.

Another vote for 44mm. On some watches 44mm is a bit big, on the U1, 44mm is perfect...

Well this seems like a lopsided vote. I voted 44mm but the truth is if I liked the watch otherwise, I would buy it regardless of size.

So what you're saying is it's a U1W with a normal color case and a red second hand. FTL
No, the U1W is our watch with a PVD case, black second hand and a non-lumed face. ;-)

Our watch was on the drawingboard three months before anyone knew anything about the U1W. The main detail that really sets our design apart is the fully lumed dial with solid black hands and markers. Sinn (Herr Schmidt) liked the concept so much that they are planning to release our design as a regular model after the WUS LE is sold out. How cool is that?! :-!
