    At last !

    Good morning everyone !
    I posted for the first time a few weeks ago, to ask you for some pictures / opinions on the 356 flieger... And I finally received last Friday my... 656 !
    Already owning some (non-Sinn) chronos, I was looking for someting aesthetically simple and pure, with a date, a kind of "chameleon" watch, that could be worn in many occasions.
    656 was finally the best choice in my opinion ! And I am not disappointed at all !
    A reliable watch, simple but... anti-magnetic, WR 10 atm, scratch resistant and anti-reflective sapphire crystal, ETA 2824-2 inside etc...

    Seems to go fast after a few days but, well, it is only the beginning...

    Just one question : I tried manual winding before starting to wear it, is there any point where the mechanism has to block, or not ?

    Will post you some pics later this week !

    Congratulations on one of the few watches that can be tool and dress watch at the same time!

    Automatic movements can be wound endlessly ... the mainspring just slips. Having said that, you may hear a fine "click" after some time when handwinding, indicating that the mainspring is fully wound.
    Cheers,

    Congratulations Bianconero, glad that you are pleased with your choice.

    I am also a new Sinn owner, I received my Fliegler 356 just last week and can't stop sneaking glances at it, timing flights and train journeys etc.
