    Congratulations - I am interested in your thoughts and pictures on this one. If I may ask, what is your wrist size?

    556I on leather... looking to put it on my greg stevens strap.

    My wrist is about 7" but its fairly small. 38mm is a size I am fond of with watches. Will post pics when it arrives. Hopefully this week or early next week.

    My first Sinn!

    So I've posted this in the dive forum (where I normally frequent) on the WRUW threads but thought I should close this thread up and show my new 556I on a GSD custom:




    what do yall think of the combo?

    by the way I think my frequenting of the dive forum might be coming to an end... these german watches are taking my fancy of late. Love Sinn of course but also love the look of the Stowa Antea and white Damasko's.....

    Very handsome combo! Love that strap style and color. I remember my old 556 had pretty tight strap clearance at the lugs, and my custom straps rubbed and got worn. You may have the same problem with thicker custom straps. But a small price to pay for such a nice watch and strap. I had the 556A, but next time I think I will get the I version for its simplicity and versatility. In the meantime, your pic has inspired me to take another look at the Greg Stevens site--not cheap straps, but obvious quality.
