Verified Owner Comments: Wonderful experience for a first time high end watch buyer. This was a gift for my husband, the customer service was great and helpful answering all of my questions and concerns with purchasing as a gift. Shipping was fast.
My husband loves the watch, we couldn’t be happier.
"A solid watch"
Verified Owner Comments: I purchased this watch because I liked the Beobachtungsuhr dial. And indeed, the dial is not only attractive, but very legible and easy to read in the dark. I also like the flat sapphire crystal which seems to have very good antireflective coating. The case and bracelet are very rugged, and this has become the watch I wear when hiking, hunting, exercising, etc, as I think it will stand up to almost anything.
I also like the antimagnetic design, as I frequently work around high magnetic fields. My only complaint would be the clasp on the bracelet, which is rather difficult to open. I do like the water resistance of the bracelet as opposed to the leather, but maybe I'll eventually try a rubber strap on it.
Verified Owner Comments: Excellent piece and proportions. The tegimented steel and matte dial allow for a no-nonsense timepiece.
The winding action is smooth and the fitment with micro-adjustments is comfortable.
"Unique and well made Sinn"
Verified Owner Comments: I had been looking for a type-b dial and the 856 B-Uhr really fit the bill.
I love the Tegimented bracelet and it looks and feels great on a leather strap. The watch runs great and is extremely well built.
"Sinn's Perfect Watch!"
Verified Owner Comments: First, let me take my hat off to Watchbuys! Great, great customer service!!!
My latest purchase was the Sinn 856 B Uhr. I am 6' 3 and I am an avid runner. This watch is perfect in size and weight, easy to read, and has many of Sinn's technologies Incorporated. I love Sinn's choice to use the white and parchment colors (looks like a light shade of orange to me.) This really makes the watch stand out! I have had many compliments!
"856 B-Uhr on Tegimented Bracelet"
Verified Owner Comments: Love this classic design, esp. with the Ivory contrasts. Looks great with Tegimented bracelet. Easily converts to a strap for dress, formal wear. The 856 case construction is outstanding & perfect size at 40mm.
"Sinn 856 B Uhr on Tegimented Bracelet"
Verified Owner Comments: I was looking for another Sinn to alternate with my U1 on rubber strap. The 856 B Uhr is perfect as a rugged, hard-wearing, every day watch. The fully Tegimented case and bracelet ensure good looks for years to come and truly are scratch resistant. The Tegimented steel has a warm tone and great looking matte finish that compliments the ivory lume.
The dial is perfect and gives a welcomed unconventional look to an everyday watch. I also ordered the tan leather bund strap to switch out with the bracelet. Being partial to leather or nato straps on all my watches, Sinn makes such a high quality bracelet, I find myself wearing the bracelet more than the leather. It's just that comfortable. The antimagnetic and AR technology was also a must have for me. This 856 has all the the most practical tech Sinn offers. My only gripe is the lume only glows for a few minutes in the dark before fading beyond legibility. My U1 glows for hours without requiring a recharge.
The 856 B Uhr is also the perfect thickness to wear under a shirt cuff without bother. It also keeps great time! Within 5 seconds per day so far. I am very happy with it!
