    The Sinn 556 thread

    Hi all,

    I just ordered one of the new 556 on bracelet. They are in stock at Sinn and it should arrive in a few days. Impressions and pictures to follow. Anybody else already got one? I'd love to hear your impressions/thoughts.

    Greetings from Bonn,

    I just wonder if 556 is using top grade or elabouree grade 2824 movement. I heard that all the sinn watch is using top grade movement or COSC movement. But the price of 556 is so cheaper. Will sinn downgrade its movement level for 556?

    Picture And here it is!

    Here's a detailed first impression. The watch, even if heralded by Sinn as a "starter watch", is a fine piece and a full grown Sinn for those who don't want to shell out that much dole. It comes with the usual Sinn swag (guarantee card, instruction manual, strap changing tool and threadlock):

    The watch itself is of a minimalistic plainness, I bought it as a dress watch which seems to be the perfect fit for it. The dial is of a glossy, lacquer/enamel-like finish, giving a bit of "sheen" to the otherwise simplistic dial:




    Size-wise, it's bigger than the 37mm diameter would suggest, here's a comparison pic (Seiko 007 on the left, Marinemaster on the right):

    "Wrist shot" lol



    Case and bracelet are brushed, the clasp is "Sinn" engraved:




    The see-through caseback is nicely exectued, the Movement (ETA 2824-2) is nicely finished, the Rotor has the "Sinn" engraving and Geneva stripes:



    compared to the rest of my collection, the 556 is a nice change and hopefully will aid me in thursdays job interview ;)

    Next up is the EZM 3...

    Cheers,

    Nice and clean looking.


    I like the color contrast of the rotor too.

    Re: And here it is!

    I like the look of the black dial. It looks like a nice deep black dial. Very nice. Sinn did an awesome job on this one. Congrats.

    Great looking watch. I am really on the fence about this model as it seems odd that there is nothing to differentiate between the "12" and all others indexes...

    I've never had a watch like that and wonder what effect it would have on quick time checks???

    For me this is the best looking Sinn (just a personal opinion). I like the clean simplicity of the dial. I don't have a Sinn yet but I may well get this one.

    How is the bracelet ?

    Very good pics by the way.
