    Sinn 856 A B

    Anyone have one of these? Any pics? I guess the blue is the same as the T2 blue? Is the date window black or just in a shadow?

    The date is white on black. I’m not sure if the blue is exactly the same as the T1 B, but it’s definitely similar.

    Hmm. Black date window on that blue dial seems pretty bad.

    I have been wondering the same thing, I can't find any other photos and also wonder how limited of a release the 856 A B is really going to be.

    When blown up on a computer screen it probably looks worse than it actually is. On my starburst blue 103 A Sa B, there is also a black day and date window, and its either I barely notice it, or its very easy to get used to.

    Not really if the black matches the black of the hands?

    Interesting. You're right. And looking into it more, the T1 B and the T2 B are the same way, and pics of those have never seemed to bother me (in fact a T2 B is kind of on my list). Not sure why this does. I'm guessing it looks better in person, as has been suggested above.

    Color matched date wheels are fairly new. For years we got black or white and we were fine with it.
    Who was the first company to offer color matched date wheels?

    On the T2B I don't think a colour matched date wheel woukd work as well. As noted the black matches the hands as well as the Ar at 9. Not as sure here but probably a similar situation.

    I'd be interested to see how the date window would look with black text on a white background, for Sinns with black dials. Maybe they tried it out and it looked odd
