    Why has it taken me so long to discover Sinn/German watches?!

    Hi all, hope you're well. Just a quick post to say how impressed I am with Sinn. I've just purchased a pre-owned (but like brand new) Sinn 356 on bracelet, and I am genuinely blown away by it. Plenty of weight to it, construction seems robust and the case size and dial layout are spot on.
    I'm very lucky to have a wife who tolerates my watch passion (obsession), so have quite a few nice pieces (IMO) in my collection - Omega/Rolex/Tudor/B'ling/Glycine/Pan - and I would say the Sinn is up there for build quality and value for money.

    And yes, I know no pics and it hasn't happened. (Hopefully to follow).

    Amazing brand and watches. Saw them live for the first time while in Germany last year. Was soooo close to buying a 358 Sa. Just a beautifully executed pilot chrono with truly innovative tech.

    In the UK do you have stores that sell Sinn watches?
    In the USA there is just a website. Zero stores.

    I stumbled across a photo of a U1 many years ago and thought WOW! Now thats a watch!
    I have never seen another person wearing a Sinn besides myself.

    I don't know if we have any stores in the UK, but Jura on-line and Neil at Chronomaster are very good retailers. I was very lucky that a friend had a 356, but he's a Tag guy, so a deal was done.
    I think the attraction for me is the size, as I'm losing the love for my larger watches - B'ling Avenger Skyland, Pan 005, Glycine Airman 17 - despite me being 6ft 1" and 250 lbs.

    Pretty much the only brand that is a "must have" for me.

    First Class Watches carry Sinn but I don’t know for sure whether they are available in their shop.

    Page & Cooper too, but I believe they won’t have all in stock.

    Watchbuys is the only US dealer, online only, but they have annual traveling "road shows" where you can check out Sinn and all of their German brands in the metal.
