    I originally bought it on the Sinn leather strap, which for me was a mistake. The strap isn't waterproof (even though the watch is 200m resistant) - so I ended up buying a waterproof leather Hirsch Mariner strap and of course swapped the buckle to the Sinn one. Now after spending the additional money, I decided I had to have the steel bracelet and so bought that too. So I wasted a fair bit of money all told on the straps. I should have just bought it outright on the bracelet and saved a small fortune!

    Any way, the bracelet is a keeper; unusually for me it fits me well and it isn't 'in between' links. The double clasp is particularly stiff and I hope this will loosen a little with use. I can see me busting a nail otherwise!

    The movement is running to around + 3 or 4 seconds per day which is great. I do worry about the longevity of the external AR coating on the crystal. I did a rough-and-ready YouTube review here and please see my photos of the timepiece below

    I think I've read somewhere that some folks actually remove the AR coating by buffing. I so want the bracelet for mine that I see yours.

    I disagree, the bracelet on my 556i is one of the watches strong points, it is very well constructed, fit and finish is excellent and the satin finish has almost a buttery feel to it. Purchasing a 200m WR watch with a leather strap on it just doesn't make too much sense to me. If you plan on going swimming with it, you best have the bracelet.

    I have mine on bracelet as well. I feel that it isn't the greatest quality bracelet for a $1330 watch. I have a $240 victorinox that comes on a better quality bracelet. Still love the watch though.

    The clasp on the 556 bracelets isn't unique or the best, but the actual fit and finish on the links is superb, can you tell me the Victorinox has screw in links on it's bracelet, because if it does it's the steal of the year then. The 556i bracelet is as good if not nicer then the one on my Tag Aquaracer, that I paid almost $2,300 for .

    Thank you! Since the straps and bracelets are so easy to change on these Sinn watches, I have been thinking about putting my 556i on a mesh one in the near future. I'm a sucker for mesh bracelets and came real close a couple of times to purchasing a Breitling Superocean Heritage 46mm diver that comes with one.
