    Which Sinn??

    I am trying to decide between the Sinn 6100 Regulateur or the Sinn 1746 Klassik. The 6100 is 44mm with a manual wind movement. The 1746 is 42mm and has an ETA 2892 automatic movement. Thoughts?

    Thoughts? Well... The most apparent thing that strikes me when seeing both of these watches is how much better looking the Regulateur is.

    Remove those ulgy 10, 20, 40, 50 numbers on the Regulator dial and you've got a winner...

    the idea of altering the 6497 to isolate the hour/minute/sweep functions is interesting, but I kinda prefer the clean dial of the klassik, even though I generally don't prefer roman numerals.

    I'd go with the Regulateur, nice looking watch.

    The Regulator is the nicest looking one, but at 44mm, it would look your wearing an Alarm Clock, on even my 8" wrists.

    Unless you have some special need for the chrono -- and I suspect you don't for if you did, they'd both be chronos -- go with the second one. It's more handsome, more versatile as goes wardrobe and less expensive. I don't ever suggest someone pay for complications for which they have no real need, unless of course one is specifically collecting around the idea of this or that complication.

    All the best.

    The first watch isn't a Chrono, it's a Regulateur. The center hand is minutes and the sub-counters are hours (top) and seconds (bottom).

    I would go with the regulateur in most any case for two reasons:

    1. You'll almost certainly be the only one in the room wearing one; and
    2. If anyone asks the time, you can pretend to be distracted, show them your watch as you pretend to do something else, and chuckle as they try to figure out where the hour hand went.

    I am generally opposed to watches without a seconds hand, although I also usually require a date window. The Regulateur is so unique and beautiful it would be an easy choice for me.
