    That is a very desirable piece. I like the numerals font on this one far better than the 556a. I'd like to see a side by side with any 556 for comparison if you could arrange it.

    Excellent photos and perspective given. Thank you.

    Very nice write up and some great photos of the 856. What was the time frame that it was offered for sale?
    And how and thru whom does SINN offer Japanese Domestic Market limiteds? Is there a special dealer there in Japan who holds a certain amount of persuasion to obtain LE's?
    Does this dealer have an online presence?
    I know for instance, with some micro brands of watches, Gnomon often has some limited editions and these are easily obtainable via their website. (Not SINN however).

    Wow! I was not aware of that Sinn-Japan website. Most of it I cannot understand as it does not translate but there are some rather unique pieces in the JDM.
    thanks so much for the links!

    I'm having a hard time understanding why the EZM3 for the Japanese market would be limited to Japan. The same goes for the 856II. It seems like Sinn is missing a pretty big opportunity.

    Congratulations. What a stunning piece.

    Really like this watch except the price has turned me off...
