    Newbie seeking Sinn 656

    Hey All! I am looking to buy my boyfriend the gorgeous Sinn 656 for his birthday and am having so much trouble finding one! I am in Australia, have been in contact with my local distributor to find they are no longer manufactured. I have looked on chrono24 and ebay but am coming up with nothing so was wondering whether any kind soul could point me in the right direction or otherwise im guessing they are v difficult to find these days? I realise there are the new models 556 and 856 but ideally he wants the all black look of the 656 which doesnt seem available in these newer models? TIA, awesome forum, so glad to have come accross you guys!! :D

    The 556 is only available in silver. However, the 856 S or 856 S UTC are both black finished.

    Either of those would make very nice gifts.

    Hello, and welcome to the Sinn watch forum.

    A Sinn 656 is a very nice gift.

    The Sinn 656 has been out of production for a while, and the black cases
    were not common. There may a black 657 (656 with rotating bezel) at a
    German Sinn dealer, but they won't ship a new Sinn watch to Germany.
    It seems like a long shot unless you know someone traveling to Germany
    or have a friend purchase from New Guinea or Antarctica.

    As mentioned the Sinn 856 S and Damasko DA36 Black would be good
    alternatives. For Damasko, Gnomon Watches in Singapore or WatchMann
    in the US will ship to Australia.


    Thank,
    rationaltime
