    My first Sinn - with a 356

    I finally did it, and chose this 356 Flieger, with acrylic. I really love the watch, and actually prefer the acrylic as it has more of a traditional feel. Build is fantastic, and it is very comfortable. I was initially a bit worried about the size, but as soon as I put it on, I was happy. I have quite big wrists, but it is definitely not too small, and fits really well. All in all very happy - and it has surpassed my expectations. My Rolex has been in the drawer since I got this one! I ordered it on thursday from Eric at Sinnwatches.com and it arrived he next day. A great service, and highly recommended for anyone buying in europe. I suspect this will not be my last Sinn.

    Congratulation offshoredriver. Excellent choice of SINN watch.

    I have two SINN 356 myself.

    I wear the SINN 356 UTC most of the time during the causal days. The 40th anniversary sits in my watch box most of the time as I don't really want any damage to it. Having said that, I've just got new brown strap for it and it might be in the rotation soon.

    Thanks. Brown strap sounds cool. Got any pics? Been thinking about that myself.

    Hi offshoredriver,

    I will see what I can do tonight. Have not touched my camera for a while, may be I will try something tonight. Mind you that the 356 40th Anniversary has a different dial color (not black, forgot what it is called, something starts with "anth". . . .)

    Hi offshoredriver,

    Here are some pictures that I took tonight:

    356 with original strap:


    346 with new non-SINN strap:


    This is with the original strap that I've took a while ago:


    Hope you get the idea.
