That's a nice Chrono :thumbup:
Thanks. I think the Racing series are underrated. I bought it in one of those moments when you go out for a sandwich at lunchtime, walk past an AD, go in, and 30 minutes later go back to your desk with a completely unplanned purchase! :o

Had a meeting with a local WIS who has been collecting watches since decades, and he kindly let me try on some very nice watches. I tried on a 5513 Submariner, a Kobold, a Seiko MM300, and half a dozen Sinns (U1, UX, EZM1, EZM3, Arktis, etc.).

The U1 has to be the heaviest watch I have held, and probably the Shogun is the lightest on bracelet. Unique looks and amazing fit for a big watch. Until Sinn makes a titanium U1, I will be happy with the Shogun (or will I?)

Titanium Arktis, very lovely - If this had the Sinn 103 hands and non-screwdown pushers, it would be a dream watch.
Image

The MM300 was sooo thick. The Sinn UX looks awesome at extreme angles, and had an oil bubble, but the second hand did not hit the markers.

5513 Submariner, oh so nice. Today I learnt that 5513's have bidirectional friction bezels, just like the one my Sinn 103 has which I like very much, but a bit tighter to move.

Oh, that is cool. Love the ball bearings that rides outside the case, but I'd be worried about whacking it and rendering it stuck or missing. But as a design, a great idea especially for a sight impaired person.
