    Help me decide 836 or 857 non UTC

    I know its up to me but I do value everyone's opinion:). Im torn between these 2 watches. I realize they are quite different but I have narrowed it down to these two for not just looks but size. I prefer watches larger than 42mm. This will be my first Sinn and I plan on keeping it in the collection for a lot of years. Which one? or is there another Sinn suggestion that I should consider.
    thanks!

    Both nice watches. I use a rotating bezel everyday to time something or as reminder of an upcoming conference call, so my vote goes to the 857.

    That’s a tough decision

    As Dan mentioned, they’re both great watches. The 857 is more “tool” with the blasted finish. Where as the 836 has a beautiful satin finish, very sporty. Eventually I’ll own both, I love them. With that being said, go for a minty used 857 and save a few bucks. The 836 will be released later this month, so full retail on that one.

    Looking forward to your arrival thread

    The non-Ar thing might save some service costs and/or allow more service choices once it’s out of warranty.

    As a previous member said avoid the AR gas filling etc. I had to send my (now sold) 856 UTC back to Germany for service. Although I now believe they have service centers in US and UK that can cater for that.

    I have now got myself an older pre-owned 656S which they don't produce any more that doesn't have all the dehumidifier capsule or AR filling but still has 200m water resistance.

    if it seems too good to be true...it usually is.

    I’d say the 836 as I don’t like the numerals on the dial of the 857
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    I was really torn on this one but eventually went for the 857.
