    A Year On The Wrist

    This past June marks the 1 year anniversary for me and my Sinn 556I. I have worn this watch everyday for the past year. What does this mean? Well I've worn it everyday, taking it off only when I'm sleeping in my own bed, when I shower (unless it needs a rinse), or when playing sports (basketball, soccer, racquetball). “How” and/or “Why” you might ask? Well… first because I wanted to, and second because I had no need for anything else.

    This watch has criss-crossed the country a few times. It’s been in hotel pools, rivers, lakes and 2 oceans. It’s been hiking up in the Catskills and Adirondacks and the Great Smokies. It’s been there at work and out in NYC bars. It’s been to a wedding and a funeral. Wherever I was or whatever I was doing it was there.

    I usually wear it on the bracelet, but when the situation calls for it I will put it on a dark brown Horween leather strap or an olive green Zulu.

    From a technical stand point it’s performed very well. For the past 9 months it’s consistantly been humming along at about -2 seconds a day…which I am happy with. It started out running around +5/7 secounds for the first couple of months.

    The case and braclet still look great with the satin finish. Some scratchs here and there but nothing crazy. The braclet is super comfortable and solid. In my opinion if you get this watch you NEED the braclet.

    The outer AR coating on the cystal is scratched to hell, but you can only see it in certain light. Kinda new it would pick some up some scratchs going into it so no surprises there. I’ll eventually have it removed…but it’s not bothering me to bad right now.

    All in all it has been, and hopefully will continue to be a great watch that is comfortable in almost all situations I get myself into.

    And now for the current, year later pics…

    So whats next? Will I ever wear another watch?
    Well…I’m getting married this fall and decided I wanted to get a nice dress watch to wear at the wedding. So I just got a Tudor Ref. 7995 (with a serial to date it to 1966) from the fine folks at watchestobuy.com. I may need to take it for a spin before the wedding. (*pics to come soon)

    Thank you all for reading!
    Kind Regards,

    It looks good for being a daily wearer under all conditions. A testament to the quality of the watch. I look forward to the new acquisition and congratulations on your upcoming nuptials.

    It means you need more watches to start rotating

    I'm a one-watch kind-of-guy as well (er, for now). Great choice for a daily wearer. Hope you enjoy it for years to come.

    What a great story.. most of us would not be able to wear just one watch for a whole year.. Sinn comes out with the most impressive timepieces out there..

    Re: A Year On The Wrist

    People can go an entire year with one watch? (This gives me great confidence in ordering the 556, as I've been eyeing it for the longest time)

    In all seriousness, congratulations on the pending nuptials.
