Finally caught up after making a few worthless posts. Interesting how we can develop dislike for certain aspects of watch collecting.
One of my personal dislikes is for the 2824 movement. Nothing wrong with it; I just donít like it. One reason is Iíve had either two or three Sinn 556ís sent back for winding issues. I love the simplicity of the Sinn 556 but donít like its 2824. On the other hand the Sinn 856 is powered by smooth winding 2892 movement with several other nice features that make it the ultimate tool watch but at greater expense than the 556.
While I never thought the manual winding of the 2824 as stiff, the 2892 is definitely lighter to wind.
I go back and forth on this. I’ve gone through three phases of opinions, too:
- Any GMT would be awesome!
- Only “true GMTs” are awesome!
- Well, a “true GMT” with a jumping hour hand is better for traveling... but the other kind, with a jumping 24hr hand, would be a better “office GMT”...
I rarely travel anymore. Hell, I haven’t had a proper vacation since 2015. But we’ve got family in all four US time zones, family in Europe and Korea, and some events at work are done according to Zulu time (I’m looking at such an email right now).
Maybe what would be best for me would be a GMT of any flavor but with a rotating bezel.
To keep track of multiple time zones nothing beats a smart watch.
I really appreciate the easy of a jumping hour hand. 1 - 0 in favour of PO over Sub ;)
I really don't see that value of a GMT for keeping track of 2-3 time zones. So for me, my interest is more on looks than function.
Soon as prices rise... Just too small.. Design not just physical size affects perception.
Itís disheartening how often bad decisions are made based on advertisements with pictures. My worst purchase in recent memory was the Railmaster LE. I like the ďregularĒ 40mm Railmaster but what a disappointment the Railmaster LE was - wears small, too much bling and overpriced.
