    Torn between Sinn 757, 857 & 857 UTC

    Need a flieger watch to complement my Sinn U1 SDR.





    Which should I get?
    I'm leaning towards Sinn 857 S








    Or UTC? ( But I've already got a GMT watch)




    Or maybe 757 because I don't have a chronograph yet...





    Bonus...maybe I should get a Damasko instead?

    DC66 SI?

    You have excellent taste. I've had a few U1 models. SDR is a great look.
    Recommend a 757 (non-s). More versatility in the silver model, plus the chronograph function.

    Just from aethestic look, 857 look better. But I don't have any Chronograph watch yet, hmm...

    They are all awesome. I would just like to point out that there is a significant difference in the case thickness between the 857 (12 mm) and the 757 (15.5 mm). This doesn't sound like much, but I laid my 857 next to a 757 once and the difference was striking. As much as I like the dial of the 757, it's way too thick for me.

    I love my 857. Super comfortable and extremely versatile. The thin case is just one of the things I love about it. Prob the main reason it gets much more wrist time than my Pelagos.

    I'll also add I wen't with the non-UTC 857 and have no regrets. To me this watch is as versatile as a sub.

    I tried on the 757 and really like the size and function of it. I think thicker watch than 875 but its not uncomfortable. My vote would go with the 757.

    Yeah I guess the counterpoint is that 15.5 mm is not at all unusual for an automatic chrono. And it does give it a strong presence. Bottom line is that they are fairly different watches.

    Also, don’t get a damasko instead. Sinn design is just too good.

    Comfort is important for me. Thanks for the tip!
