    Question Sinn 656 case size??

    This watch must be one of THE most popular on the various internet watch forums. My question is this....is it too small? Certainly size is subjective, and the dial may in fact be large due to the thin bezel, but what do most owners think about the size of this watch? Also, is the lume good or only average?

    If you are used to wearing a U series , it will seem tiny.

    The lume sucks on it - I ended up selling the one I had.

    Well made , and has a chunky feel for it's size when on the bracelet.

    There is a Model 657 with a diver bezel that looks nice and I think the case is slighty bigger

    I consider the 656 one of my larger watches.

    Hello,

    The 656 has an IMHO ideal size... not to big, not to small. Diameter, height, bezel size and dial design are very well balanced. I also had no problems with the lume.

    If you think the 656 is to small have a look at the 856. It has a (about) 2mm larger diameter and comes in the same plain style (with an additional 24h hand).

    Kind regards Philipp

    I think 38.5 is a good sweet spot but then again I have average size wrists.

    The 656 is dominated by the bold face and small bezel so that the watch just looks and wears bigger than it is.
