My New Do Anything/ Go Anywhere Go To !

"My New Do Anything/ Go Anywhere Go To !"

Verified Owner Comments: First: I want to say I was drawn to this watch for it's fantastic blue dial and applied indices. I've always admired the 556's various versions but the more simple painted dial just never screamed buy me... the blue did ! (spoiler alert the dial more than lived up to hype)

Second: I bought in addition to the FINE LINK the more traditional band the H Link Bracelet (I've owned that style before and loved it.) So just in case I didn't love the Fine Link and considering the drilled lugs I figured I could have two different style watches for just a smidge more than the price of one. ( lastly If I had concerns about adjusting the fine links sans micro adjustments I could always fall back on the H link for daily wear)

Impressions: Let me tell you everyone at work including some serious watch geeks, all love the fine link, they think the traditional H link is great, but the Fine link really caught their attention. And as it turn out so many people I come in contact with when I wear this beauty. So, let's talk Fine link, it comes with a pair of half links, and as fine as it is it's still ALL SINN with the the pair of Allen keys ( supplied needed for sizing ) it fits and wears better than I could have hoped, in fact, dare I say, for me better than the H link. Now When I travel I take a traditional Diver's watch and This 556 I-B and feel I'm ready for anything from formal dinners to play/adventures.

The Fine link certainly dresses it up but keeps it's 200Meter advanture side active. Strongly recommended, for work to dress to play! Bonus: my wife Loves it! In my eyes a combo of fantastic build quality, great aesthetic choices and dressy tool watch that's the one to beat short of a Rolex Explorer IMO. (and even then, you might just say... nah this thing is more than Nice enough to save the money & take a nice vacation to say Hawaii or Europe, Yeah it's that great! )

Sinn 556ib

"Sinn 556ib"

Verified Owner Comments: This is my third Sinn watch. This has to be my favorite, never a big fan of blue watch dials but this dial is beautiful. Watch accuracy is fantastic, bracelet is really comfortable.

Watch size is perfect on my 7 1/4 inch wrist. Dealing with watchbuys is a pleasure. Quick response to any questions and very knowledgeable about their products.

Great service

"Great service"

Verified Owner Comments: The watch exceeded expectations. Ordered on Tuesday. Watch delivered to Toronto Canada 12 hours later.

Watchbuys paid all shipping and brokerage costs. All I had to pay was local sales tax plus 5% duty. Highly recommend purchasing from this source. Five stars all around....

Awesome watch

"Awesome watch"

Verified Owner Comments: The picture doesn’t do this watch justice it looks even better in person. Keeps within 5 seconds per day so far. Quality of the watch looks and feels superb.

Customer service was great too. I asked if I could swap the fine link bracelet for the one seen on other 556 models. I got a call within minutes to tell me they would be happy to accommodate and credited me the difference.

Classic Blue dial mens watch

"Classic Blue dial mens watch"

Verified Owner Comments: The dial is much more handsome in person than any pictures I have seen. Nice and simple and the blue dial looks mostly utility in normal lighting. Then when the light is right the dial shines and the nice silver markers light up and it looks brilliant. A great watch on a handsome mans band for the price.

Plus 8 seconds over 3 weeks. I really like the no date feature. That is how I bought my date to fuss with. My eyes can't see a date anyway. Highly recommend this watch. Only hesitation for trendy buyers might be the lack of size. I really like it and wanted a metal band for summer.

Perfect watch for everyday

Verified Owner Comments: Great customer service and communication from watchbuys. The watch is perfect. Simple, well built and acurate. More accurate than my Omega seamaster. Sinn definitely make some nice watches.

Very pleased

"Very pleased"

Verified Owner Comments: This is a great watch. Great looking, great size, comfortable to wear and extremely accurate (thus far) at +1 second/day....thats better than any of my COSC certified watches have been able to achieve (with exception of Brietling Aerospace and Tissot PR100 Quartz Chronometer, both with HAQ movements). Really impressive.

If I had to make a couple suggestions to Sinn it would be !. to engineer and offer a micro adjustable clasp. 2. make sure all distributors are aware not only what their territory is, but who their fellow distributors are so a customer can be guided correctly and directly if they happen to live in a part of the world where their nearest distributor is not in fact their distributor. But in regard to the watch itself, could not be more pleased!

Superb Wrist Presence

"Superb Wrist Presence"

Verified Owner Comments: This watch has to be seen on-wrist to be fully appreciated. The rich blue dial is very understated until viewed in full sunlight where it truly reveals its glory.

The applied indices give this model a true sense of luxury over the printed dials of the 556 A and 556 I black dial. The fine link bracelet is one of extreme quality with an excellent double deployant clasp that has no equal. It is also thinner and quieter than Sinn’s H-link bracelet albeit a trifle less comfortable.

This watch would make a great 1 watch collection.

Perfect one-watch

"Perfect one-watch"

Verified Owner Comments: Perfect one-watch. Slim yet sturdy. Rugged and sporty yet perfectly acceptable in dressy occasions at the same time. No date means no fuss. Strap monster. This is one beautiful watch.

I bought it for a graduation gift for my son but wish I bought this for myself over my IWC Mark XVIII Le Petit Prince. By the way, the georgeous blue dial on this Sinn watch leans more toward a purplish-blue than my IWC’s medium-blue dial, but is equally beautiful.

556I Blue

"556I Blue"

Verified Owner Comments: Pictures don't do this watch justice. It has to be seen in person.

Sinn did a great job with this one. Hope to see more variations in this configuration, without the date and with the applied hour markers.



Verified Owner Comments: I own both of the older A and B dial models and have enjoyed them. But this version really blows them away and takes the series to the next level. The fine link bracelet is definitely an upgrade from the H type and the watch as a whole wears very comfortably. The sunburst dial is gorgeous as is the color. Case finish is very nice indeed.

What I really love though is the way the light plays off of the indices and hands, which totally livens up this piece compared to the older all white scheme. If you were only going to get one Sinn and didn't want to go the larger diver route I would say this as good as any model they have put out so far and that is saying a lot!

556 I B

"556 I B"

Verified Owner Comments: I recently purchased a 556IB w/ fine link and I must that I couldn't be more pleased. I set it to Atomic Time and if it's lost time I can't see it. I have had numerous nice comments.

The service from Watch Buys has been spot on and I will definitely use them again.

Great watch!

"Great watch!"

Verified Owner Comments: I've been looking at Sinn watches for a few years but, for whatever reason, didn't purchase one until the 556i B came out. The simplicity without the date complication, the clear indices and that fantastic blue face. Photos don't do it any justice!

WatchBuys was fantastic throughout the purchase process and I couldn't be happier with the experience and look forward to doing business with them again.
