    1st time sinner

    Hi All,

    Iíve spent the year looking for my first mechanical watch. After countless hours of web search and visits to various dealers, I just couldnít pull the trigger on any of the usual suspects. I liked the way the sinn watches looked, but was a little hesitant to drop some serious coin on a watch I wasnít able to try on.

    Watchbuys is the only dealer here in the states and seemed to have a good return policy, so I gave it a shot and purchased an 856 UTC. Let me say that this watch looks even better in person. Pictures donít do the tegminted steel justice. In pictures, the finish looks matte, while in person is has a slight sheen. The dial is extremely legible up close, but doesnít look out of place on the wrist.

    Overall very happy with my purchase and with the Sinn brand. I plan on keeping this watch for awhile. Maybe when I save up, Iíll delve into the other sinn lines. The 6060 has peaked my interest as a dressy watch.

    Welcome and Congrats on your new Sinn. 856UTC was my first Sinn, it remains to be a favorite watch of mine.

    Congrats! The 856 is high on my short list as well. But first, I'm waiting on the white dial 104's to come back in stock at Watch Buys. That'll be my first Sinn and I can't wait.

    Pics might not do it justice but you still need to post some
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    Did you get a new watch? Pardon me for not knowing since YOU MUST ATTACH A PICTURE OR IT DIDN'T REALLY HAPPEN. However, welcome to the club.

    I am sure before you know it, you will already be a "Sinnful" WIS!
