    just got my 556 this morning and it is stunning,

    Yes it is a hacking movement, not sure yet about the date change speed,

    The hands and markers are super lume, plan to take some lume shots later.

    It is a fantastic watch, i am very pleased with it.

    A Sinn 556 lume shot, from my new watch, it glows well, but i did charge it with a torch before the shot, glows for a while.

    I am happy with it.

    Very nice lume. But it's kinda hard to differentiate the 12hr marker. At first, I thgt the shorter one was 12. Then I took a look at the day pic and realise it was 3.:oops:
    Maybe they should make the "Sinn" wording glow in the dark too! Makes it easier to tell where the 12 is.

    Just received my sinn 556. It is very nice. I got number 792. It does seem bigger than the 38.5mm suggests.

    How's the accuracy? Within COSC specs?

    #556.0011 arrived today. I posted a WTB (after consulting this thread amongst others) on Sunday evening and within 12 hours the watch was purchased and it arrived today. I am pleased. Thanks Bruce.

    It was everything I was looking for. I feel it's a great watch in that it has a fleiger like heritage and aesthetic, but has some dressy elements as well. The brushed stainless versus bead blasted and the glossy black dial (love it!) versus matte really help make this watch more appropriate for a broader amount of situations (imo). I also love that the lume doesn't look like an applied layer. It seems to be perfectly flush with the dial.

    Not a big fan of the black strap (or black straps in general), but I have a med. brown one on the way to remedy that. I will post pics when installed.

    By the way, I was suprised how much heft this thing has.

    Also, small wristers, this thing is perfect for my 6.5" wrist. While I could conceivably go 40mm, I think the 38.5 is perfect and about as large as I will ever want to go.

    has anyone added a Sinn branded deployment to theirs? If so, pics...

    Great watch!

    no, they are either elabore or top grade, depending on the serial batch.
