    836 just landed...

    Have coveted this watch and lived vicariously through other forum members who posted their photos for too long. Finally got off my fat ass and purchased. Such a cool looking watch and feel so fortunate to receive. My reservations regarding how the 43mm case would appear on my 7.25” wrist were ill founded. Leather strap is very supple and comfortable, but am considering ordering bracelet.

    Congratulations. Hopefully my pictures were some that helped push you over the edge!

    This really is a great watch. Very comfortable. I bought a SMPc recently (also great) but the 836 still gets plenty of wrist time. It's honeymoon-period-proof

    Congratulations! Your new 836 is a beauty! The black strap looks great, but the bracelet would be too.

    I’m loving this watch. Haven’t owned a Sinn for years and this will be a keeper. So comfortable on wrist. Timekeeping is excellent so far at +2-3 seconds/day. It does look amazing on leather strap, but need strap options that are conducive to water activities. Will likely purchase bracelet.

    The bracelet is comfortable and very substantial. The clasp feels a bit cheap compared to the rest of it but not too bad. This is my only Sinn so I don't have anything to compare it to but this seems to be a common complaint with their bracelets.

    It is easy to adjust with the included tools - add/remove links or fine tune with the micro adjustments on the clasp.

    The bracelet sometimes looks to be a slightly different shade than the case. I think maybe the brushing on the case is finer than the bracelet or something because as far as I know they are both tegimented steel.

    I would buy the bracelet again. To me, it makes the watch even more versatile.

    I really like the date placement, and the red seconds adds a nice splash of color against the deep black. Nice real nice.

    Congrats and welcome to the club

    The 836 is a great piece for sure! ToxicNATO’s with brushed hardware is a great option for water activities as well as the Sinn silicone.

    Enjoy that Bad Boy for many years!
