Default Thinking about becoming a Sinn'er ......

I am rather smitten over this watch, wondering if anyone else feels the love, Puma man perhaps ? .................

Very nice looking watch with a proven movement. Here’s a little history on the movement. Personally I like the leather strap - black with red accents. Very classy!

I hope Puma chimes in on this.

Dave - While I generally think highly of Sinn watches, am not a fan of the aesthetics of those 'top hat' outer buttons on the one shown. Plus, it's mechanical, which no longer works for me. YMMV (obviously).

In my opinion, the appeal/draw to Sinn watches is their looks and the fact that they are mechanical movements.

How old fashioned.
Done with all the hassle of winders, resetting, etc., with mechanical watches. Having the batteries changed every couple of years in my IWC & Cyma are enough (actually, almost too much ). No longer drive a stick-shift. Not sure what my fascination with vinyl is? Must be the sound. Sinn needs to offer an electronic model (without 'top hat' buttons). Am sure Dave will get what appeals to him. But, he did ask for opinions (at least a feeling of love, or not).

Ooops.................. But, sir. It burns with a cool flame.

Dave - how about this one? Better buttons (IMHO).

It ain't too shabby, they have added quality to the eponymous 7750 so should be applauded, few do.

Handsome watch, I like the white face of the Sinn better though
