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.
