    Question Watch that looks like Sinn 656?

    Hi All,

    Really looking forward to getting my first real watch but am having trouble deciding.

    I REALLY love the look of the Sinn 656, but it is a bit out of my price range.

    I was hoping you knowledgeable folks could point me in the direction of a watch that has a similiar look but is in the 200 - 400 price range.

    Id like 40 - 42 mm diameter and automatic or manual wind.

    Thanks very much for the help!

    Honestly, if what you really want is the Sinn 656 then save for it and get the Sinn 656.

    At $1,300-1,500 approximately set up a weekly budget for yourself and then cut it back by however aggressive you want to be with the watch. Then take the $400 you would spend on this watch and add it to the savings pot off the bat... now you're down to needing to save $900-1,100.

    (Example, my weekly budget is $20... I cut my meals out to no more than $8 a week (essentially only eating out once a week). From there I cut out going out to the bars all the time and stopped smoking. All together it adds up quicker than you'd think and you have the watch you're happy with).

    You say it's 'a bit' out of your price range. I'll assume that doesn't mean it's twice or thrice what you want to spend.

    My advice is to buy a bonafide 656 used, or save up for a couple additional months until you can afford your ultimate desire. Otherwise you will not be completely satisfied. You'll cherish the 656 even more knowing that you had to pass up a several paychecks' worth of lattes and movie tickets.

    Just save for the 656. The 656 was designed by the same person who designed the BR01, B. Bellamich. B&Rs new classic line is like a 656 on roids with awesome domed crystal. A copycat will not fill your needs. Those are the only two that are similiar with share heritage, like cousins.

    Yeah, that 656 is a [email protected] The others, not so much... you'll forever have to say (or think), "yeah, it looks just like the watch that I really wanted..."
