Sinn 857 or Bremont MBII

Post by downer »

I have been offered a decent deal on a Sinn 857...

Should I allow myself to divert my Bremont fund..

The Bremont... a bit more depth (from the pics) and definitely because of the little flash of colour. Makes the Sinn look a bit flat in comparison.

The Sinn would be 'just another watch' , the Bremont would be special.

I like Bremont, but I really feel they are overpriced.

I vote Sinn.

Both nice, Richard, though not my type. Go with the heart on this one! Good luck! :thumbup:

Can only agree. The Bremont is lovely, but it is 20% more than it should be. If I keep saving, maybe I'll find a second-hand one.

Problem is, all the second hand ones I've seen have been orange, rather than green.

The Sinn is nice but with that bezel it becomes a bit too much. It would be a distraction to go for the Sinn if you really want the Bremont. The thrill is in the chase. Having said that the Sinn should resell very easily.
