Japan often gets special editions made specifically its market due to the size and highly developed taste of Japanese watch buyers. Sinn has made a couple of interesting limited editions for Japan, the latest being the U2 Meisterbund III.
This is based on the regular U2 dive watch, but unlike the normal U2, the U2 Meisterbund III has no second time zone function, giving it a much cleaner dial.

Rated to 2000 m, the U2 Meisterbund III has a 44 mm case in submarine steel with a black PVD coated bezel hardened with the Tegiment process. It also has Sinn’s Ar-Dehumidifying technology with a copper sulphate capsule in the case to absorb moisture. Aside from the depth rating, the specs are identical to the 47 mm Sinn U212 SDR limited edition.
The dial is in white and red, as is the bezel. And unusually the crown is at 10 o’clock.
Only 80 pieces will be made and sold through Sinn dealers in Japan. The retail price is JPY357,000 with tax, or about USD4280.
