    Sinn 556 on bracelet for 6 inch wrist?

    Greetings. I just became interested in mechanical watches in the past 6 months, and I purchased the Stowa Flieger in 36 mm. I love this watch, but I have already been looking to add to my collection (you know how it goes...) I have been looking at the Sinn 556. Given my 6 inch wrist, I did extensive research on this forum as well as reviews on the Watchbuys website. Although I can find some information from people with 6.25 to 6.5 inch wrists, I found almost nothing from people with 6 inch wrists like me. I called Watchbuys and they said that my wrist circumference was right on the borderline for this bracelet. Given this, I was wondering if anyone could advise me on their experiences with this. I hate to purchase the watch, adjust the bracelet, and then have to resell it if it doesn't fit. I would also be curious to hear opinions on the diameter of the watch for a 6 inch wrist. Any wrist shots would also be appreciated! The Flieger that I own fits well. It is only 36 mm, but the dial is about 32 mm of this. I tried the Hamilton Khaki automatic in 38 mm and found that the watch was a little to chunky, so maybe I'm pushing my luck with the Sinn? For reference, my wrist is about 50 mm across. If it doesn't seem like a good idea, then I might consider the Muhle 29er in 36.6 mm size instead.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hello, I have a 6.25 inch wrist and have owned both a Sinn 556i w/both bracelets, and I currently own a Hamilton khaki auto 38mm w/bracelet. For me, the lug to lug seemed bigger on the Sinn, maybe due to my wrist not being so flat. The Sinn H-link bracelet didn't help with that as there was a small gap from the lugs and overhang that was part of the reason why I sold it. However, the Sinn fine link bracelet was more form-fitting for me and masked any insecurities about the sizing. If you don't mind the aesthetics of the fine link, I'd say that is the best way to go, although I cannot attest to its fit on a smaller diameter wrist. Hope this helps, thanks!

    I have a 6.5” wrist and found the Sinn 556 looked to big to me. I have had 2 in different colors and just found since it’s an all dial watch it wears larger then the 38mm size. Some may view it different but I just prefer smaller watches. It’s a really nice watch for someone whom it fits tho.

    I know this is the Sinn forum but I think you should start leaning towards the Muhle. Do some good digging like you’ve done on the 556 about the Muhle. Good luck in your search.

    I cannot recall if my wrist is 6.25" or 6.5" but my Sinn 556a is absolutely the perfect size. I like the fit of my SKX013 for reference but I find the short lug to lug (44 or 45 I think) somewhat awkward due to the 13+mm thickness. The 556 on the other hand is perfectly proportioned being 11m thick and 46mm lug to lug. If you cannot find one local to try on, I think you'll be presently surprised by taking a flyer on it. That's what I did last summer and haven't looked back!

    Thanks for that. How do the lug ends sit at the edge of your wrist?
