    My New SINN 857!

    I ordered this 857 about 3 weeks ago from Watchbuys (along with a U1 on a brushed Tegimented bracelet) and finally received a spring bar tool so that I could install this black Tegimented bracelet on the watch. Although I absolutely love both watch's after a partial day with the black bracelet, I just don't think I will ever warm up to it. (Although I do live in Minnesota, and it has been bitterly cold, there was no pun intended with that last statement ).
    For now I think the 857 will reside in my watch winder and I will go back to my U1 until I can find a brushed Tegimented bracelet. I just took a look at Watchbuys website and they are not presently in stock. I will probably end up selling this black bracelet along with the black leather strap that originally came with my 857.

    Looks great. Temps have been rising though? The brushed bracelet will look better. Im on the fence about an 857 just concerned about the L2L for a 7 wrist. Yours wears very well!

    Just snapped this pix. I gave it a quick wipe with a sweatshirt to remove finger prints and replace them with lint...

    Definitely warmer (Local news has us at 21 degrees F, my deck thermometer says it's only 12 degrees) but we are getting too much snow. My wrist are 7" if that helps to push you over the edge.

    High here in Florida in the low 80's today. I don't miss subzero weather and snow! I love my 857 UTC VFR. The black bracelet on yours just looks out of place to me. Maybe they make tegimented brushed bracelets, but mine is sand blasted and tegimented. It's got that matte look but could be mistaken for brushed. Most folks that see my bracelet mistake it for titanium. I think your watch would look better on a matching bracelet or a strap.

    We just received another 6" of snow... I ordered the tegimented sub steel bracelet which should be arriving from Watchbuys tomorrow and will probable be selling the black bracelet at some point.

    Nice acquisition! What a fantastic looking watch! The 857 with the UTC complication is becoming my grail watch. It's also nice to find another Minnesotan here!

    Lovely looking watch though I'm not sure about the black bracelet. Have you tried the 857 on leather - it's quite stunning IMO.
