    Finally got a Sinn! 356 Copper & Sapphire!

    After long time admiring Sinn and the 356 in particular, finally settled down with the sapphire copper dial version. I couldn't be happier. The building quality and detail is unlike anything else I seen in the price range. Just a few pics and happy to join the Sinn group!

    Thanks! I was as well but after owning so many common color dialed watches I really wanted to go outside my "comfort zone" and try something different. The dial ultimately sold me. Wife use to love my Explorer 2 polar dial but she said this has become her new favorite piece of mine because its so unique. Took a few more pics today thought I'd share.

    That dial is beautiful! I've had a 356 Sa UTC for over a year and I always think about selling it and looking for a copper dial instead - and your photos really make me want to take the leap. I am not sure about acrylic vs. sapphire though; the outer AR on mine doesn't look so great.

    To me the dial thru sapphire version looks a bit more vivid when comparing to acrylic aka plexiglass version.
    -or maybe it's just because of those excellent wrist shots of JPfeuffer.
    -or has there been different dial versions?
    -or maybe the dial on acrylic version has different kind of coating for UV protection?

    Could someone please post a fine photo from the acrylic version?
    And is this the reason why it isn't available anymore? At least there is this new double domed Sa crystal nowadays that is almost as vintage as plexiglass...

    I now took a look of my Flieger II...there must have something wrong in my nearsight or memory as the dial looks the same thru acrylic when having a closer look with a better light.
    It's just because those close up wrist shots bring out the guilloche dial's details and curves so nicely.
    The sapphire is cleared for sure because of AR and thick plexiglass edges also blur a bit but I kind like it.

    One difference I did find, the solid case back is a bit thinner so I think the watch sits bit better. I don't know why the see thru case back is used in newer model.
    But both versions are for sure very, very unique and much discussed too. Wear your Flieger IIs in good health..

    JP - If it works for you I'd love to see your watch in person. Let me know. I'm midtown based. I could return the favor by bringing along something that interests you. Coffee, obviously, is on me.

    When the light hit the face at the correct angle, it really comes alive!
