    Agreed. I've had mine on leather but have put the metal back on.

    Great watch...

    I just bought a mint condition Sinn 556. I can`t wait for it to arrive. I also am excited that my watch has the serial # 556.0017 on the back, which means I got #17. I will post pictures when it arrives.

    Was killing some time and thought I would bring this thread back up to the top.

    Does anyone have any new photos of their 556 they want to post? If so, do it here!

    Does Sinn have an AD in Australia?

    I would also like to know this.

    the Standard grade is adjusted in two positions with an average rate of +/-12 seconds/day, with a maximum daily variation of +/-30 seconds/day;
    the Elaborated grade is adjusted in three positions with an average rate of +/-7 seconds/day, with a maximum daily variation of +/-30 seconds/day;
    while the Top grade is adjusted in five positions with an average rate of +/-4 seconds/day, with a maximum daily variation of +/-10 seconds/day.

    Which one in a sinn 556?

    All I can tell you is mine gains 6 seconds per day and has done from new. If you can point me to a chart with the movement numbers I'll have a go at reading them.

    I dont know either but it's the most accurate auto I have. It was a little fast early doors but is pretty much spot on. I cant remember the last time I had to change the time....

    I just ordered one of these from Neil at chronomaster. Got it at an excellent price compared with Watchbuys, especially after VAT is deducted. Hopefully it fits nicely on my 6 inch wrist. I got it on leather as I couldn't stomach the additional cost of the bracelet. Some great photos in this thread, I'll post some when mine arrives.

    This is also my first mechanical watch purchase. The agonising wait for the postman begins...

    Thumbs Up Re: The Sinn 556 thread

    The more I see the 556 the more I appreciate it's simplicity. Keep the metal band and it has more of an classy/rugged look to it. Put on leather strap and it's the perfect dress watch (I particularly like the pics in this thread with the brown leather strap, very sophisticated looking). I think I have found my next watch.
