Solid watch

"Solid watch"

Verified Owner Comments: I’ve been on a wait list for this watch for close to a year. I had wanted the version on the leather strap, but missed that one and chose the fully Tegimented version. This is one solid watch, and the heft is noticeable even in the box. I’ve worn the watch quite frequently since I received it, and in my desk duties that normally really leave tell tell marks on straps and clasps, this one is mark free.

This has to be one of the more legible watches that I own. Even at night, it just stands out and is highly visible. As for the accuracy, it tends to run fast, but within tolerable limits. This is my 4th Sinn and they all seem to run fast. I think that’s a German attribute as even my Glashutte Originals, Tutima and other German watches all run a little fast. Personally, I prefer a watch that runs fast to one that runs slow. Guess that’s in my German DNA.

If you have the chance to pick one of these watches up, and you need a tough, reliable watch that is no frills and will not let you down, don’t hesitate on this one.

Verified Owner Comments: Easy to order and customer service was great.

Received the watch. Looked great coming out of the box. Came with tools to adjust the bracelet as well as spring bar tool if you wanted to change the band. Highly visible in the dark and keeping great time so far. No problem so far.

Amazing Watch

"Amazing Watch"

Verified Owner Comments: I've owned the Sinn 857 UTC for a month, and it has quickly become my everyday watch. The dial is easily read in a glance, day or night. The tegimented case and bracelet are great. Not a single mark on them.

I highly recommend this watch and Watchbuys.

A watch for every occasion

"A watch for every occasion"

Verified Owner Comments: I have had this watch for 7 or 8 years now. I love it so much that I rarely take it off. Its suitable for every condition. It can be worn in a casual or more formal setting. The outside of the bracelet has suffered some scratchs over the years, but they are hard to notice.

Considering that I have worn it every single day for 8 years and there are only some small cosmetic damages from use now is a testiment to its construction. 10/10 would reccomend.

A tool watch Icon!

"A tool watch Icon!"

Verified Owner Comments: I bought this for my son-in-law on the occasion of his first child and he was overjoyed. It bold but not oversize, intricately and elegantly designed. Dial legibility, GMT feature and tegimented steel steal the deal. This is my 2nd Sinn purchase and I am already planning the next one.

There is nothing that compares in quality and value - the Swiss don't offer tegimented steel!

The Tech You Crave

"The Tech You Crave"

Verified Owner Comments: I had owned a Sinn 856 UTC in the past and loved it, but something about a rotating bezel appeals to me. So the natural progression from here was the 857 UTC, and I am extremely glad I took the plunge.

It has all of the cool Sinn tech I was looking for, in a nice everyday wearability package. Great watch!

857 utc tegimented on bracelet

Verified Owner Comments: Thanks watchbuys for another great watch. Super legible, large watch with great wrist presence, but wears small and is very comfortable. The bracelet was easy to size, and the watch works flawlessly. The tegimented steel finish is not only tough, but has a cool industrial look that I really like.

Thank You again, Watchbuys.

Excellent Pilot Watch

"Excellent Pilot Watch"

Verified Owner Comments: I'm currently training to be a military aviator and wanted a tough watch with a GMT/UTC complication for use during flight training and beyond, which led me to this Sinn.

It's great to read in terms of legibility, UTC is integrated very well on the dial, and the watch is most definitely tough. This Tegimented steel is no joke, I haven't managed to put any scratches on it after a solid three weeks of daily wear. Pair that with the magnetic resistance, and the cool copper sulfate capsule and I'm thrilled.

In terms of options I'm very glad I chose to go with the 857 over the 856 to get the bezel. It's very functional (I use it all the time), and adds to the overall tool aesthetic of the watch. I'm also glad I chose Sinn's bracelet. Like I said the Tegimented steel looks and performs great and the bracelet is very high quality in terms of finishing and function.

Very happy with the watch and how the Watchbuys folks went above and beyond to answer my questions and were very proactive in updating me on the status of the order once I had it placed. Thanks again!

857 utc ultimate everyday timepiece

"857 utc ultimate everyday timepiece"

Verified Owner Comments: I have worn this watch every day for 2 years, in my collection I don't have anything that is as hard wearing or beautifully utilitarian! The styling is slightly confused , divers and pilots but I actually prefer this to my Rolex Sub!

Beautifully made and it's one of those watches that people own that KNOW about good watches.



Verified Owner Comments: I've been wearing this watch everyday for about 6 months and like it. Very nice size and weight. I bought the rubber (latex) band (large clasp) after the initial purchase and am impressed with it as well.

The steel one was fine, was just looking for something different and the rubber one happens to hold the watch a bit more firmly on the wrist while mountain biking. I do wish the watch was easier to read in the dark. It has decent glow power but the hands are too similar in shape and size to be totally legible in the middle of the night.

Overall, would recommend it though. Very well made.

No regrets...very cool watch.

"No regrets...very cool watch."

Verified Owner Comments: I have had this watch for 6 months now and I love it.

I spent a lot of time looking for a rugged but classy sport watch, and decided on this one over an 856 to get to the right case size. I had some reservations about the bezel, but one thing worth mentioning is that the numbering is in gray, matching the case metal, so it doesn't "pop" as much as it appears to in the pictures. The yellow UTC hand is not unattractive or distracting.

I wear this piece often, and the tegimented case is pristine. Looks great with a pebbled reddish-brown strap. If Sinn would "get the red out" of the U2 model, I'd buy it.

500 days of Sinn

"500 days of Sinn"

Verified Owner Comments: I have had my 857 for about two years and wear it daily.

There is almost no noticeable wear and tear. The clasp on the metal bracelet is the only piece that show signs that it is worn at all. It still catches the eye of watch enthusiasts who often ask who makes it and how nice it looks.

I love this watch. That is the reason I have not bought more watches...I would still want to wear this one.

Great Watch

"Great Watch"

Verified Owner Comments: I love this watch. There are very few true dual time-zone watches that have a diver-style bezel. This is one of them.

The watch is an ideal military timepiece. The tegimented steel is also fantastic. Looks like titanium, but with a more solid feel.

Also, watch is not too big. I also wear a Submariner, and have a relatively small wrist. I was worried it would be too clunky for me, but it's perfect.

Fantastic watch.

"Fantastic watch."

Verified Owner Comments: This really is a nice watch.

If you are thinking about getting one, DO IT! It's well worth the price.
