"856 B-Uhr - Perfect Tool Watch"
Verified Owner Comments: The 856 B-Uhr is a beautiful watch that combines the charm of a B-Type Flieger with state of the art watchmaking technology. It's a true everyday tool watch. This is my first Sinn and it's easily the most legible watch I own. It's 200m water resistant, anti-magnetic, equipped with copper sulfate capsules to draw out moisture within the case, and it's even filled with Argon gas to prevent moisture from getting in in the first place.
Best of all the case is made from Tegimented hardened steel, which makes it pretty darn resistant to everyday dings and scratches. I've banged mine around while playing golf, landscaping, even woodworking and it still looks brand new and runs at just +4.5 sec/day. I do agree with the other reviewer that the bund pad is unnecessary and makes the strap too long. That being said, the strap itself is high quality and extra holes can be added in seconds with a leather punch. Also, It looks fantastic on Nato, so I had the strap swapped out quickly anyway.
Overall, this is an excellent watch that you can actually wear everyday, in almost any situation. WatchBuys was great to work with and I would definitely buy from them again.
"Perfect Everyday Wear"
Verified Owner Comments: I was looking for an everyday automatic tool watch that was 36-40 mm, under 12mm, easy to read, anti-magnetic, shock resistant, and scratch resistant. Easy combo right? This was honestly one of the only ones I could find that was less than $3000. I found myself mostly cross shopping this, the rolex explorer, the tudor ranger/blackbay, and the Sinn 856 UTC.
At the end of the day Sinn provides a much better value than the tudor/rolex lines, and I much preferred the simple aesthetics of the B-Uhr vs the UTC. My only complaint is that the limited edition strap, while nice, is too long, so I purchased a black nato nylon strap to complete the package. I love it.
"856-B-Uhr on strap"
Verified Owner Comments: Beautiful Watch. Bund pad is unnecessary which makes strap too long for my 7 wrist. Other than that small issue, this is a Beautiful Watch.
