    thanks to you all for the kind words. The bracelet is the usual Sinn quality, price of the watch is 490EUR on leather and 615EUR on bracelet.

    It's not usual in the UK! I didn't get a tool, cd or threadlock.

    However, after some time spent online, in this forum as well as by reading ArmbandUhren (I can read German quite well; just don't ask me to form a coherent sentence in the language! ;), I lean more and more towards a Sinn as my next purchase - I had the 144GMT in mind, but the 556 really appeals to me. (Heck, I can get both for less than what a Cosmonaute would cost! :)

    There wouldn't happen to be a Sinn dealer at either MUC or FRA, would it? (I pass through both several times a year, that's why - buying the watch in Germany would save me 25% Norwegian VAT on the purchase price.)

    Me neither. I was e-mailed a pdf of the English manual when I asked for one.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    If you are in FRA and FRA is Frankfurt/Main, why not visit the world HQ itself?

    -Excellent idea. I was first and foremost thinking of a dealer inside the airport premises, but as the Sinn HQ is just a little cab-ride from the airport...

    Next time I'm flying through FRA, I will make sure I have a few hours to spare, allowing me to go see Sinn.

    Thanks!

    Yep. This is certainly one of the more affordable from Sinn.
