So far a really great Valentine's. I got soemthing special for my wife--not just the flower or chocolate thing and she wanted to do that too.
I have been oogling the IWC Spitfire for the longest time--it is a great watch by every standard but a bit more (about 3 large) than I wanted to pay.
Then I saw this watch--it appeals to me very much like the IWC--it's even a bit more plain which I like. It does not have an in house movement like IWC but it uses a top of the like ETA movement and is specially oiled by Sinn before being put into the watch. The watch is a Sinn 656--I wanted a strap rather than bracelet for this one although the bracelet is pretty too IMO.
I have a thin wrist so this watch fits well. The trend of course is to larger and larger watches--not 44 mm to 50 mm is more common. This watch is 38.5 mm so it it regular sized (not 33 or 35 mm whcih would be midsize) but it looks just right on me--again with the style being the larger watches. The band is available as a short and was installed by the dealer so it fits perfectly.
It goes great with one of my favorite pen sets--the Lamy 2000--which silly enough is important to me.
What do you think?
