    Black, beautiful and still undecided.

    Hi, I am looking for a new watch. As you can see, I have already narrowed it down quite a bit.
    The first one (in no particular order) is the Christopher Ward
    C11 MSL MK1. The second one is the Sinn 856S and the third one is the Bell & Ross 123 Original Carbon.
    Am I missing an important one in this lineup? Which one do you think is the nicest and why?

    I'd say the Sinn. It has a stunning bold simplicity, your eyes are just drawn to it.

    Likewsise it's the Sinn that grabs me. I've been an admirer, though not an owner, for a long time.

    Sinn also. With a very close second to the B&R. I pick Sinn for simplicity and rarity.

    I have to admit that the B&R is pretty damned beautiful, especially compared with their other offerings (yuck!). But with the Sinn you get much more technological innovation, a better price, and no douche-stigma following you around from the brand reputation (apologies to all B&R devotees - I'm pointing to discourse and not my own opinion). To put it bluntly the Sinn is for the fashionable man of substance; the B&R is for the man of fashion (if I ever buy the B&R I'll eat my words...).

    Based purely on looks I'd take the B&R and it's not even close. I like the dial on the CW but the case ruins it for me. I just can't get into Sinn.

    Thanks!

    Budget tells me Christopher Ward.
    Reason tells me to go with the Sinn.
    Irrationality says B&R.

    Damn.
