Sinn 556 A RS
Thank you, Lords, for assisting me in making my decision. Your thoughts on the watch/transaction that I inquired about influenced me to purchase a new one instead of a 17-year-old model for $500 cheaper. For a long time, I've admired this watch style. I was planning on getting a Seiko-Spork-SINN-style watch at one point.
I won't bore you with the details or a comprehensive review. There are numerous reviews, comments, threads, photos, and videos available on the interweb. I was thinking about getting a Damasco DA36 or a Sinn 656. The Damasko appealed to me more since the hands are, in my opinion, the right length. I think the Sinn hands are too short, but I couldn't find either of those watches new.
I went for the 556 on the fine link bracelet, and it's rather comfortable. I've had it all of 6 days, and I'm really digging it!
I bought it at https://www.watchbuys.com/

They are an AD online here for Sinn.
They were great! From the online chat on their Website, to the pre-sale Phone Verification, and Confirmation, to the packaging, etc.
All First Class! The watch did come with 2 Hex Bracelet Wrenchs, and also a signed Springbar tool.
And the Date/Time was correct :)
Very pleased with Watchbuys. I got a good feeling from the start!
Thank you once again, Lords, here's she is:
