    Long story short....

    So long story short, a few months ago I purchased a Sinn 556i. Simply, I love everything about it. A few days ago I attempted to purchase a 556a red special edition and due to a website snafu it fell through (it said it was in stock and it was not). I wanted to keep the 556i on the bracelet for a dressier “wear with anything” watch and the 556a on a canvas strap for an every day watch. Now I’m looking for a replacement and find myself torn between the regular 556a and a Damasko da38. I liked the pop of the colored seconds hand on the 556a red and that is also why I like the da38. I’m slightly concerned about the size difference between the two because I do like the size of the Sinn and am looking for insight. Pics for interest (not mine).

    Buy the Damasko, you already have one Sinn.

    That is definitely part of my thinking. I am however trying to remove that from my thought process because although it would be great to have a Damasko and a Sinn, I don’t want that to be the deciding factor. This watch buying/collecting stuff ain’t easy...

    I like the Damasko. I really dig the day date complication and I like the bracelet more too.
    I also like the hands more. Especially the blue minute hand.

    Go for the Damasko as you’ve already got one 556.

    Go neo-green second hand (DA 36)!

    Btw, the Damasko bracelet is a tank so do your homework before pulling the trigger.

    I'd get the Damasko and the 556a and remove the 556i from the group.
