    Sinn Germany Purchase 856

    Merry Christmas..

    currently have a a sub and an omega bond, both blue faces.

    Have been ooogling a Sinn for quite some time.

    Need a black face always worn with a dress shirt.

    Looking for the 856 on a bracelet, maybe a U1 too- always like it.

    I Travel to Germany often, US to Frankfurt to Lohmar. Will be there week of Jan 19.

    So what's the plan?

    Buy through the Sinn factory or a German dealer.

    Any my details would be appreciated.

    If anyone has had a positive experience, I'd appreciate your input.

    Hello Stephen,

    If you travel to Frankfurt it would be unfortunate to miss visiting the
    Sinn factory. Here is my suggestion.

    Leave enough time to visit Sinn and view every watch, even if you
    think you already have chosen your model.

    If you purchase, complete the paper work for Sinn to refund the VAT
    when you leave the EU with your new watch.

    Post photos here after you return home.

    The U1 is a good choice. However, if your shirts have tight cuffs
    getting the cuff to slip over the watch may present a challenge.
    I suggest you test that when you try on the watch. Here is the
    U1 SDR.

    I brought my 856utc direct from Sinn factory. It was extremely difficult walking out with just one watch for myself. I walked out with two Sinn that day, the 856utc and a 243TiW for my wife. At the factory you get to see and try every single Sinn, plus different strap combinations. Well worth the trip, plus if they have it available you get a hard copy of Sinn catalog for free with your purchase.
