The Hour Glass has an interesting series to commemorate this year’s TEMPUS. It is an All‐Black collection of watches from seven brands - namely Audemars Piguet (limited to only 1), De Bethune (limited to 10), Hublot (Bigger Bang limited to 10 and Big Bang to 50), Jaeger Le‐Coultre (limited to only 3), Richard Mille (limited to 10 - image not available at the time of the press release), SINN (limited to 250) and TAG Heuer (limited to 10). Click on the image above to see it in a higher resolution.

Of these watches, the Sinn U1 intrigues me the most. Its identical to the original U1 diver rated for 1000 metres but the case is in matt black tegiment that has the same texture as ceramic. Easily the most affordable limited edition from the whole series.

Fortunately for me, Hour Glass has promised to let me have the first watch that arrives. Undoubtedly, I will photograph the Tempus U1 for the world to appreciate as soon as it arrives.
