I've been eyeing up the Sinn 556i for some time now and I'm close to pulling the trigger.
I own a fair amount of watches, some large some small. I find myself always wearing my smaller timepieces and leaving my big boys in the box, I only have a 6.5 inch wrist so anything I own above 42mm I just can't get comfortable with. I can't sell a couple of watches (Hamilton X Wind, 44mm and Seiko Arctura, 46mm) because they were gifts for my 30th and hold too much sentimental value.
I'm rotating 4 regularly; Certina DS1, Steinhart OVM, Orient Mako and Orient Bambino (mainly for dress occasions) but I'm keen to add something else to my collection. I feel the Sinn would be perfect size wise and I love the design.
I understand they've increased their prices recently and have also released another 556i on a different fine link bracelet.
Can anyone give me any feedback on which bracelet is best, original or new?
Also is this watch worth the money? The original bracelet version is £795 and the fine link version is £810, I can't recall how much they were in the UK before the price hike.
I'm always on eBay looking for a nice used example but they don't come up very often.
Thanks for your time.
