i think it's this. newest sinn 556 LE.

quite like this. reasonable size, nice blue, bit of sunburst, the preferable 5 link to the h link (at least for this watch, to me) just nicely done. hoping it'll see the light of day at watchbuys so i can snag one.

need to get on my lower end watch selling spree to fund for it.
the "g" is for Greg...

I have always considered these a rather nondescript oversized, overpriced rehash.

Then I saw one in the flesh......... Utterly jaw droppingly gorgeous, exquisitely made and has certainly caused a rethink!

I've seen the black PVD version of this and it's beautiful. Big but beautiful... No doubt the bronze version is equally lovely.

^^^ I have looked at this many times - in the smaller size, and I've seen it at very attractive discounts... but why-oh-why do they write "Pilot Extra Special" on the dial?

I suspect because someone else got the copyright on “Superlative Chronometer”? :D

They are bloody amazing Guy, and considering I had never seen one, they are available from a surprising no of places!

I actually thought of you Guy with this one...

Big bugger though, although I know you like a bund.
