    Given my druthers, I'd probably go for a 6060, but the 6068 came up first and it's a sweet watch without the extra complication, and a cleaner dial.

    Re: How About a Frankfurt Financial District Watch Thread?

    I've got a 6099 that I wear out for dates, evening, etc, and love it every time I put it on. I keep thinking that I want to add an Omega PO or IWC Portugueser, but then i wear this and say maybe not..

    Hey Redharc, thanks for pointing out this thread. I was looking at the 6000 & 6060. I happened to be in Frankfurt so stopped in the Sinn shop and tried both on. The 6000 was too tall for my wrist so I decided to stick with the 6060. I have several GMT watches but they are all diver style so I really like having a three zone GMT dress watch.

    Congrats, but c'mon man -- where are the pics?

    I have the 6060. At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about it, but now I am really enjoying it. I prefer straps to bracelets, but this is a very nice bracelet and I find it really makes the watch. I don’t care for the black strap it comes with.

    I have a need to work in three time zones on a daily basis, so for me it has a real practical benefit. It’s also great for travel as it doesn’t get the kind of attention a comparable Rolex would.

    Very nice!

    Would you guys say the 6060 and 6068 wear larger than the 38.5mm diameter due to the fairly large dial?

    Not really honestly. Given the relatively thin profile I think it balances it out nicely. Given that the inner bezel doesn’t have any overhang on the case I think it wears very closely to the actual size.

    Thank you! It is such a beautiful watch. :)

    Counterpoint. I would say it does wear a bit larger. I was swapping out between a 556A and a 6068. Not too much of a difference, but enough to notice, and if comparing to a 38.5mm watch with any kind of substantial bezel, I'd say it would definitely wear larger.

    All that said, I'd stop short of saying it wears at all large.
