    Sinn 856 & T2 - Next purchase?

    During my last 2 visits to Frankfurt I visited the Sinnstore and purchased the 856 and T2B.

    Both of these watches are very good. Small , thin , lightand excellent value for money.

    856 with blackstrap
    Cannot fault this watch. Small, thin, light and comfortableon the wrist. Just about the perfect size for my wrist , approx. 6.75”.



    T2B
    Great diver. Small, thin and very light.
    This watch in blue looks far better in real life compared tomany photos. I was going to buy a Pelagos , but this watch was a much betterfit.
    The titanium bracelet is nice , so light and comfortable.
    Only slight negative is the crown can be difficult toaccess/unwind and the diver extension on the metal strap opens when I take thewatch off.




    Next Purchase ?

    I will be visiting Frankfurt next month and would like toadd another Sinn to my collection.
    Unfortunately there appears to be limited options availablefor small, thin watches. Most of the smaller watches look similar to the 856.
    During my last 2 visits to the store I tried on manywatches, U1/UX/T1. All were too large or too thick for my wrist

    I really like the UX series, 903 St BE, 910 SRS & 936.Unfortunately all of these watches are large (44mm) or thick (>14 mm).
    Rather than buy a new watch its likely I will just buy somenew straps (Brown vintage style ) for 856 and the blue rubber strap for theT2B.


    Please Sinn , make more watches similar to thedimensions of the T2/856. (Otherwise Imay have to take a look at Nomos/Tudor!)

    How about the 104? 41mm diameter, 11.5mm thick.

    756 diapal, fully tegimented case/bracelet 2 subdial chronograph. Relatively thin for a chrono, at 14mm, 40mm diameter

    Those are just my two favorite that meet your >44mm diameter, >14mm thick requirements. There are tons more... just not necessarily designs I personally like.

    Check out Sinn’s website, or watchbuys. Watchbuys is easier to navigate IMO, but doesn’t carry every single model that the Sinn website has.

    Good luck in your search!
