    Sinn 857 UTC Tegimented

    With the dollar just bottoming out day in and day out, I think I have decided to not wait till Basel and to finally pull the trigger.

    This is the object of my affections...what does everyone think. I expect to order on Monday. If anything comes out at Basel that I have to own, I am selling a kidney.

    Been one of my favorite Sinn watches for a while now. For me the perfect size-43mm and thin at ~12mm. You can wear it with anything. I really like the Yellow tipped GMT hand. Bracelet is pretty sweet too.

    Thus spoke a true WUS member! I think this is an awesome piece! When you get it, we expect some wrist pics! I would not worry about the value of US$. If it goes down, say, 10% more, a (for example), a Sinn EZM 3 will go from $2000 to $ 2200. No big deal or what?

    its the fully tegimented version so I'd add the bracelet as well. then the entire watch is almost scratch proof. Go for it. I'm thinking about getting one as well before another price increase. I'm thinking about the black tegimented version myself.

    thanx for all the feedback guyz. 43x 12 is perfect...legible and fairly flat, and I dig the yellow (I'm a cyclist).

    hopefully I won't be selling any kidneys soon.

    I tend to wear straps, so I may consider the bracelet down the line, but I always wind up with straps somehow.

    I can't wait to pull the trigger Monday morning.
    kind regards,

    Thanx Johnny and congrats Brian...it was a tough call for me with 856 or the 857, that's for sure.

    Hmmm never thought about that... Would a kidney get me enough for a chronometre royal?

    as a cyclist, don't sell a kidney. Just sell a bag of blood to Johan to keep the astana legend moving.
    I too am a rider.
