Sinn EZM-10 Watch

For what you are getting, the price of the Sinn EZM 10 is very good, but it is clearly at the higher-end of what most people are accustomed to spending on a Sinn product. That means traditional Sinn buyers will need to save up a bit more, but at the same time, with all its cool features, I think the EZM 10 has the ability to even bring new people into the brand. Sinn sells the EZM 10 on the leather strap and additional straps as well as the bracelet are extra.
