    Will be getting my first Sinn. Have questions.

    Hello,

    So the student decided to get a watch since I always wanted one, but I was afraid to spend the money. Now I am ready for that.

    At first, I was looking at Tag's, then Omega's, and then Tag's again, and finally discovered Sinn's ..

    I narrowed my selection to 3 choices.

    1. 556 on Bracelet - not too big, the backhead is nice too, but no numerals. It has the sign "Made in Germany" and "Automatik" which I like that.

    2. 656 on Bracelet - Like the numerals. A little oversized, but nothing to worry about. It looks kinda unique. I was wondering why doesn't have a sign "Made in Germany"..? Is it made somewhere else? Does it have on the backhead?

    3. 657 on Bracelet - New model. Looks like 656, but with a nice bezel. I don't like that its bigger, but would that be really noticeable between the 556 and 656?

    I like them more on the strap, and I will be getting that for sure. Do they all have the same movement? Which one would you take?

    Thanks.

    I believe all three use an ETA-2824 movement.
    All Sinns are made in Germany. My 356 also does not say "Made in Germany" anywhere.

    I personally would get the 656.

    I love my sinn 556. I have worn it everyday the last week since recieving it. I have worn it on the sinn strap and bracelet, either way the watch looks great. The 656 is also a great watch but is too similiar to the 556 for me to add at this time. I will buy one done the road though.

    It is very difficult to help you choose. All three are so nice!

    Take the 657. If possible the 657s.

    I think it's really not that big. if i'm not wrong it's 39 or 40mm which is a normal wristwatch size.

    556 and 656 are the same case pretty much (different back), about 38.5mm. I think the 657 is about 40mm, not too large. Not wearing my 656 today, so can't remember whether it says Made in Germany on the back or not!

    I've got a 656, and it's my favourite of those three. It's distinctly Sinn, and I like the discrete date and great legibility of the dial design. A future classic in my opinion.

    Alright, so it was kinda hard decision for me. So I pulled the trigger today on the 556 on bracelet.

    I really wanted the 656, but big numerals forced me to change my mind. I may get another Sinn later.

    This is my first real watch, so will see

    I know its a hard decision. They are both nice watches, but both look different on a hand.
