    156B in da house!

    The 156, a long time grail for me. Finally bit the bullet and went for it. I think I got a good one, super clean bezel appears new. Overall very nice watch. Of the things that drew me to the 156 are it's history and the font... Just love the dial font. Of course, the Lemania 5100 as well.

    I had a newish 356 bracelet that I wasn't sure what I was going to do with, so I thought it would be fun to see if I could modify it to work on the 156. I didn't want to change the overall radius to perfectly match the lug radius as I don't have any way to refinish the blasted finish. It's only about .5mm if that, so I can live with it. It's not a perfect fit, but it looks pretty good overall.

    Looks pretty good. Nice choice. Of course, the Lemania 5100 seals the deal!

    Super watch,good deal,gratulation.
    Sinn made it also without the military text on the dial.
    For me as an flower keeper is it a little bit more clean on the dial.

    awesome piece! Can anyone speak to when these where produced? One day a chronograph will reside in my collection, this would definitely fit the bill. I would guess the age and conductibility of the 5100 movement in this model will add some difficulty. Are they as rare as I fear?

    They were produced between ‘87 and ‘97 roughly. The heritage comes from the Heuer Bund.

    Here is a good history lesson.
