    Your first Sinn - Suggested best first

    Hi All -

    So, I know 556 is v. popular. If you were to buy your first Sinn (again), what would you choose?

    I like 356, 756, 103,60xx series, ie 6060

    thanks!!
    Brett

    I'd buy the 856 S UTC again. I foolishly sold mine and miss it dearly.

    I second the 856UTC. It was my first Sinn and still my favorite. Here is mine with different shoes.

    Your first Sinn - Suggested best first

    I was seriously foolish and sold a mint full packaged Sinn Arktis about a year ago.

    Regretted it ever since. It's the best value for money watch and the most striking watch I ever had. If I went back I'd have that as my one keeper and the rest of my collection could go and I'd be happy.

    I'd go for the 203 Arktis again as they are so special.

    My First Sinn I was 22 and not as into watches as I am now, so I was a good bit more restricted and selective on price.. I wanted it to be around 1000, and I went with a 556 A which was 985 at that time.

    But if I could go back in time I would definitely pushed it up a few hundred and went with the 104 st sa

    Now I have a 103 St Sa which is similar but better (granted it was 2.5x the price) so I probably wouldn't bother picking up a 104 anymore.

    Really depends, are you a diver guy, a pilot guy, a GMT guy? Personally, I love anything in the diver box. The only watch I've ever kept any real length of time is the UX. It is a great watch. I have no plans on selling it, and it is, in fact, on its way to Germany for a little lovin'. I've owned many watches and several Sinn pieces. The UX is the keeper.
    Too many flipped...

    There have been many good suggestions made; however, sounding like a broken record, my choice is the Sinn U1. Since I could not decide whether I liked the U1 or the U1 SDR, I ended up with both and they are keepers in my collection. I have owned several other Sinn models, but stuck with the U1.

    Bottom line though, you can't go wrong with any Sinn model! Cheers, Bill P.

    I love my Sinn 6068 NK ... still has sporty look but dresses up nicely. I also considered the 103 and 556. Name:  sinn 6068.JPG

    356 or 856UTC, I say. Had both. Regret flipping the 856. Still have and always will my 356. Love it.
