    Lightbulb How About a Frankfurt Financial District Watch Thread?

    I know most folks here are into the toolish watches, but there have to be a few of these floating around, right? Watchbuys is currently sold out of the 6060, 6068, and 6096, so someone is buying them, and I know there are one or two 6000 owners around the forums...

    Anyway, to start off, here are some pics of my new 6096 Frankfurt World Time:

    Am about a month into ownership, and am really enjoying it. Keeping COSC time (at +5/day, steady), extremely legible, with gorgeous applied indices and a wonderful sunburst finish to the jet black dial. Looks great with a suit, business causal, or jeans and a polo. The bracelet is super comfortable and build like a tank, with hex screws and alternating polished and brushed links. The date at 6 really preserves the symmetry while still allowing for a useful complication, and the GMT hand is great for tracking another time zone or (as here) simply presenting the home time in a different way. (I have always found that the natural presentation of a 24-hour hand really adds some nuance to one's perception and tracking of time -- seeing the 24-hour hand at 12, for example, really drives home that the day is already half over.

    The box is worth noting as well. It comes in a large black presentation box, with a leather strap, extra spring bars, booklet, hex wrenches, strap changing tool, loupe, polishing cloth, and metal warranty card:

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve been looking at this series for my next watch. I like the look of it on the black strap. How is the quality of the strap that comes with it?

    Actually, I'm a bracelet guy and have barely paid any attention to the strap. Glanced at it when opening the box and that was it.

    I'll take and post some pics in a day or two. Do you have any specific questions?

    Here are some pics of the strap. It seems nice to me, but as mentioned above I am not a strap guy and wouldn't really know what to look for:

    Nice watch! I think it's a great design for a GMT. I was very close to getting a 6060 but was concerned if it might be slightly too big for my slim wrist.

    Beautiful watch. Congratulations.

    For the longest time I was set on a 6066.
    Gave up- Never see them for sale. Seems like everyone holds onto them. Damn thick though. Sigh, something about a GMT alarm watch.

    There’s one on Chrono24, looks high though. (Not heckling, just I keep an eye out there for sinn’s)
