    556 what are you going to get ??

    I'm ready to buy a Sinn 556, but after some reading ,I'm not sure what I'll be getting [new]
    It seems AD can't be sure what mov't will be in watch -ETA or Stellita .. if it's an ETA What grade ?
    The case was previously marked SUG indicating the maker ,not sure if it is marked now ??

    I just think that for over $ 1200 it should be perfectly clear what you are buying !

    Contact the seller (WatchBuys) and ask what configuration is currently available for delivery.

    Spoke with them a few days ago. No guarantee on which mov't,they think its still eta. Didn't ask about case,I'm sure it will be uncertain.

    I just bought a 556A from WatchBuys a week ago or so...it's definitely an ETA 2824, but not as decorated as in the past I guess. Still has the gold rotor and blues screws, but no pearlage, etc. Not sure if the case is SUG...haven't taken the bracelet off yet. On a side note...I managed to get a couple hairline scratches in the AR on the crystal after just a couple days wear! So...I polished it off. (It was pretty easy, using a felt disk on my dremel and a little polishing compound.) Less to worry about, now. Sweet watch though!

    Sinn has all along been using Top Grade ETAs for their watches.
    I presume it'll be a like for like grade swap if it's Sellita.
