    Newly converted to Sinn

    I never was much of a fan of Sinn in the past because a) they were out of my price range, b) I'm not a fan of the diver look with busy dials and thick bezels, I'm much more a bauhaus and aviator-style type of guy. But this weekend I decided to up my price limit from $1500 to $2500 so I took another look at the bewilderingly large selection of Sinn watches.

    I'm looking for a rugged black watch so I've added the 856/857 and the U1 SDR to my potential purchase list. The 856/857 are classic pilot-style with clean legible dials. The U1 SDR is a lot more "divey" then what I had in mind but I love its clean, modern look and blocky hands.

    **edit: I've also added the 104 St Sa to my list, although not available in PVD black, it looks great and seems to be a good value!

    *** BUT ***

    I have completely fallen in love with this Sinn that I had never seen or heard of before, the 6110 Classic with Steel-Blued Hands. Didn't even know Sinn made such watches. Wow! I absolutely love it and I think this will be my first Sinn even though I don't really need another dress watch... Anyone here has experience with that watch?

    That is a beautiful Sinn; however, when I think Sinn I think of a rugged tool watch like my U1 pair. Perhaps that is just me. Cheers, Bill P.

    sduford,

    I wish I could help you by telling you how great the 6110 is but I can't, I own a UX which I love. If I had to get rid of every other watch I own just so I could keep my UX I would. What I can speak to, that may be of some help to you, is that Sinn makes absolutely fantastic watches. Of course, so do other watch makers. I have found that German watch makers are pretty unique and produce high-quality watches. I don't think you would be disappointed if you pulled the trigger on that stunning watch.
