“I want a real watch. Something I can wear everyday for the rest of my life and then leave to my kid when I’m dead. Also, I only have about $1500 to spend. What do you suggest?”
You want a mechanical device that will last at least two lifetimes and you only want to spend $1500? Sounds impossible, right?
It’s not… The Sinn 556 is your answer. It’s a German made tool watch that is made like a brick shit house with a proven movement and, in my opinion, the best aesthetic on the market. The only thing keeping it from absolute perfection is that it features a date window… and I prefer clean “no date” faces.
Still… Starting at around $1300, you will not find a better a watch than this. Period.
