Today it is a Submariner, blue face, steel and yellow gold case and bracelet.
Tomorrow - who knows.

That blue 103 has me rethinking my "not anticipating any further changes in my collection" statement. I so nearly bought an Arktis (203) so many times...

Oh I thought about it very seriously for a moment too (sell acrylic 103, get blue one, keep the bracelet I have already) but you know what, just like people do with the Speedy, I'm happy with the original version in this case - the blue Gemini LE Speedy is a stunner, but I would still get the original classic one first.
Plus, who likes screwdown pushers ?

It is a stunner though. If I did not have the blue alt1-p I would definitely be interested in that. (And if course assuming that it was a reasonable size)

You are right about the pushers, and it's also 17mm tall - which is a bit big for a 41mm case. It's one to try before you buy, and that's not easy with Sinn.

I agree with all the praise for the blue Sinn but this caught my attention today.

That's around the £1400/£1500 mark isn't it ?
