The Germanic watch brand Sinn, which has accustomed us over time to tool watches and which has always been characterized by a classic design and colours that rarely deviate from the monochromatic standard, now enters the bandwagon of coloured dials through one of its most beloved models, the 556.
We don’t know if for fashion or for demand, but the reality is that since Rolex presented the Oyster Perpetual in a selection of striking colours, the market went into ecstasy and the watches ran out of stock in stores and prices on the secondary market soared to absurd values. After Rolex and very recently it was the turn to see Omega through its Aquaterra collection also entering the world of coloured dials, and now it’s Sinn’s turn and we suspect that the market will not stop here, and more brands are coming.
The new Sinn 556 is similar to the standard 556 model with a black dial, with the exception of the date window, which has no space in the four new colour variants that come in emerald green, citrine yellow, aquamarine blue and carnelian red.
Everything else remains the same, like the 38.5mm diameter satinized stainless steel case, smooth bezel, screw-down crown, sapphire crystal in front and in the case back and 200 meters of water resistance. On the dial, applied baton hour markers and hands in rhodium-plated filed with lume, and finally, the usual inscriptions of the brand logo at 12 o’clock and “Automatik” at 6 o’clock.
Inside, there is also nothing new, it continues to operate the self-winding movement SW200-1 that offers up to 38 hours of power reserve.
All models are offered with a grey canvas leather strap with a butterfly folding clasp.
The watches appear as a limited edition of 400 pieces per colour, and are available with prices starting at €1,290. If you are thinking of purchasing one, know that the blue one, probably still on the Tiffany blue dial effect, is no longer available, the yellow one you will have to wait about 13 weeks and the green or red 9 weeks, be ready for a long waitlist.
The discreet but valuable Sinn has always deserved our best attention and is one of those brands that doesn’t take much for us to like her. Although the coloured dials are no longer original these days, coming from Sinn does not cease to amaze us, but when we got used to the idea we ended up liking the result and the 556 model could not have been better chosen.
With the blue already sold out and the other colours on the same path, it remains to be seen if the bet on a limited edition instead of opting for a current production will not leave Sinn with a feeling of knowing a little.
