    Anyone with both 556 I and 556 A?

    So does anyone on here have both the Sinn 556 A and the Sinn 556 I yet?

    I had a 556 I and a 856 UTC at the same time and liked them both but then thats very different watches.
    I have a 556A on the way but I still like the 556 I. There was one post by Rambam showing his 556 and 656.
    I am wondering if it would be too much to have both the I and A version of the 556.
    There isn't much else out there quality for $$$ wise in my size that I like except Sinn, Damasko, Nomos and Seiko. I keep coming back to the Sinn. I have had 2 856's, 2 x656's and a 656L, and 556 I. The main aspects I like about them are the bracelets are super comfortable and the cases are thin, the dials super legible...

    I am seriously considering getting both...

    I've never owned the 556, but I used to have a 656 and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I think the I and A dials are different enough that you can have both, although since your signature includes the DA 36, I'd be looking closer at the similarities between the 556A and the Damasko (although the 556A on bracelet will be a completely different feeling watch since Damasko doesn't have a bracelet).

    Have you looked at the Kazimon Eins? It's a similar size and feel, but once again without a bracelet option. I'm told that the Sinn bracelet will fit it though.

    Kazimon Eins looks nice but I prefer the dial of the Damasko D34/35.
    I thought about the similarities between the 556A and DA 36 Black but the 556A with brushed finish case and bracelet is very different to the Damasko.
