This is one of the watches I've been keeping an eye on for next year as well, probably in the Atlantik color scheme... very appealing as a one watch for all occasions.

I wonder how close the blue will be in real life to the C65 LE. I do like the look, but with the blue C65 already in my collection I'm not sure if I'd stretch to this one as well...

haven't hankered after a watch as much for a very long time. i'm dreaming of a non-bezel bracelet watch small enough for my skinny wrists, and this is the one - Sinn 556A........ cost is prohibitive unless i get over myself and splash out....... :-s

^^ thanks :thumbup: - chronomaster are already offering £100 less than the competition (i did wonder why!). i think a pre-owned price would sit easier with me if i can find the right deal / seller...
