Quality watch. Unfortunately quite hard to find in Malaysia

Yes, I know The Hour Glass have a few Sinn Models.

Here a picture of my Sinn 556i anniversary

The dial is really nice bro, good choice. Like the way it shimmers in the light. Was it difficult to track this model down, being a limited run?

Hi, tbh i got lucky I wanted a 556 mother of pearl, and I was on the french equivalent of mudah and saw one guy selling it, I met the guy and got it for a very good price :p , i like everything in this watch, i don't get bored of it unlike some of my seiko.

The only Sinn model i have seen in real life is the U1. The submarine steel is really heavy in real life and i like the lego-esque hands.

Even with other time pieces available, I still find myself coming back to this one.

Can the Sinn be serviced by regular watchmakers? I bought a pre-owned Sinn and it's running slow, so would like it to be looked at.

Thanks.

Shouldn't be an issue - they typically use 3rd party movements (e.g. Sellita, ETA) that are easily serviceable. What is the model u happen to have?

The SW200 movement is common enough, no worries, can service.

Not sure about discounts la really, or even if available. Its probably best to just order it online though its gonna cost just a wee bit more due to postage and import duty.

On a side note, anyone managed to land this bad boy right here? The 103 classic 12. Thicc af measuring at 17mm, LE with a production of 600 pcs and all sold out di.

Bro, I tried to order fr Sinn website. They don’t send to Malaysia. I think they want us to order from THG.

Checked eBay, watch fr Japan price abt 6k but no paper and box.

Checked Chrono24, price varies between 8-9k but comes with box n papers. Shipment+tax is abt 1k.

Do you think buying fr Japan is ok? Not sure if 356 got rep..

Hmmm just had a look on c24, cheapest 356 i saw was rm6489 no box papers, good condition. I suppose the price can't be helped la i reckon, it being a chronograph. Had a look at the TWC watch company (they're a japanese watch seller, available on c24), cheapest 356 brand new on leather is going at JPY238,300

https://www.thewatchcompany.com/sinn-instrument-chronographs-356-022-leather-cwae-blk-csw.html

I reckon ur gonna have to order from outside la looks like, if Sinn won't send here n THG won't carry it. I faced the same issue when I enquired THG about the 556i that I wanted previously. I had ordered mine from a place called Timeless in Luxembourg, but for the life of me.I can't seem to find their site nor their c24 listings anymore. Between Timeless and TWC, these 2 had decent prices on brand new german timepieces.

One good thing though, u r probably right in thinking that 356 doesn't have much reps. That particular industry is based on demand volume n the price of the gen timepiece itself. There's little enough demand for Sinn reps as it is, let alone the 356 specifically. Checking out the usual suspects, I come across a bunch of other models but not 356. YMMV, but I reckon its a safe bet.

Ok bro pleasure, thanks a lot for the info! Will check with  TWC

Btw, checked with THG, they give ard 15% off. They only have 358 LE model, other model need to order fr German.

Morning guys,

Other than The Hour Glass at MV, are there any local sellers that sell Sinn watch?
I put my name for 556i with red second hand since last year, but no news from them until now.
Cheers.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but anyone got any watchmaker with the ability to source parts from Sinn?
I got a 256ta with a compromised crown that needs replacement...

Is anyone able to share about how the tagimented vs non tagimented models age and if anything else should be a factor to consider when choosing between these?
