    Re: The Sinn 556 thread

    Hi, this is my first post. I got a Sinn 556 and wanted to post a couple of pics as every one else seems to. I've been lurking for a while but now seems to be the time to get on board. Forgive me if I screw up the pics up.

    Have to say love the watch. Nice, clean lines and very much in keeping with the "less is more" ethos. I bought mine on the bracelet which I changed and but is now back on. My leather strap didn't fit flush enough so if you do put your own leather on it has to be a big one IMHO.

    Hope the pictures appear OK and have a good weekend.

    Greg

    Re: The Sinn 556 thread

    On the back of my 556 there is "556.002"

    What does the .002 mean? Is it a version number?

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks.

    I think it means you got the second 556 that was made. where did you get it?

    Bought it in the UK... Chronomaster.

    There must be a Sinn expert out there. May be I should post the question in the main forum.

    Anyone?

    Reread the previous post. The first one is the model number followed by the prouction number. It means you got the second 556 made ever! The second one to leave Sinn HQ is on your wrist right now.

    Mine is 556.0011 which means I have the 11th one they made.

    I did read the post!

    I am surprised however because I bought mine new a coupe of weeks ago and I would have thought the 556 on my wrist would have been a much later number in terms of the production run.

    All the same it's quite a nice little turn of events. Am kind of chuffed about that.

    Thanks Greg

    Yeah that is awesome! After they are made sinn must just batch them all together and then they get shipped out in whatever order. Maybe one day I will get lucky and get a low number. I have a sinn 856 UTC SG on the way. Hope I get a good number on it!

    greg,

    i hope i didn't come off as harsh in my reply. that's pretty awesome that you got #2. i am guessing #1 is at Sinn HQ. Perhaps the first order was placed by Chronomaster and he got some low ones.

    I am not the original owner of #11, but it was bought from the USA AD, Watchbuys in January of this year. Perhaps they got a low batch as well.
