    I am not the original owner of #11, but it was bought from the USA AD, Watchbuys in January of this year. Perhaps they got a low batch as well.
    No worries!

    Kind of weird that the next buyer of this watch from Chronomaster might, and I say might, get 001. Like you say 001 is probably at the Sinn HQ.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Re: The Sinn 556 thread

    Hi there. I just recieved my 556 a couple of days ago. It is my first "real" watch and i love it so far. The one thing that bothers me slighty is the S on the crown. Is there a reason why it is set in different font from the logo? Being a somewhat of a typography nerd that S annoys me...

    Also, I have a question about water. When is it a good idea to take the watch of? Is it safe to take a swim with it (in salt water)? Maybe a stupid question, but I don't want to take any chances...

    And by the way, I got number 517... Here is some shots of it







    Cheers

    Hi,

    This watch looks great.. im so close to buying one from chronomaster.co.uk. Does anyone have the strap with the holes in?

    Mine has a metal strap. My advice is buy the metal strap because they cost so much more as an accessory and you can pick up a better leather strap for a third of the Sinn price and have more choice to boot.

    Plus if you sell you have the bracelet which will enhance the value.

    Just my opinion!

    I wish I'd bought the bracelet now, when the leathers worn out I'm going to replace it with the metal.
