Well I got my first Sinn yesterday (556i special edition with the red seconds hand). I donít think I would have done so if the forum member I bought it from had not provided some really well thought out pics with the ad. The pics he had convinced me to give the watch a try and I love it Ė itís a beautiful watch (love the red seconds hand) and the contrast of the markers and hands against the black lacquered dial is like nothing I have seen in another watch. Very glad I took the leap of faith.
When Iím spending north of $1,000 for a watch I want to enjoy its aesthetics even if it is ďutilitarianĒ (otherwise Iíll just wear my G-Shock). I know itís a hard thing for online retailers to present their watches in the best possible light when they have a huge volume of watches to post and maintain, but if all I had done is rely on the pics of either Sinn or Watchbuys I donít think I would have pulled the trigger.
P.S. Some of the best AR on a watch I have experienced.
