The Case

The SUG-presented defense of the 356 is 38.5mm in width (barring the screw-down crown and crown monitors) with a drag to-carry tallness of 46mm, putting it on the marginally more modest finish of the range. These measurements, nonetheless, are marginally beguiling on the grounds that the case is quite thick with a width of roughly 14mm. A ton of that comes from the wonderful domed acrylic gem, which gives the watch some additional wrist presence while as yet keeping it open for those of us with more modest wrists.

Dial, Hands, Lume, and Crystal

From the start the 356 dial looks jumbled, particularly when one thinks about how much data is full into a generally modest quantity of land. After looking into it further, nonetheless, it becomes obvious that the 356 is very clear for a chronograph of moderately small size. For general timekeeping, a dainty tick denotes each moment at the external edge of the dial, while a thick, bolded square shape denotes each 5-minute addition and hour. Arabic numerals can be found ridiculous, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11 spots, with the 12, 3, 6, and 9 markers consumed by the sub-dials and the day/date window.


As I’ve effectively referenced, the 356 is customarily fueled by the consistently solid Valjoux 7750. A great deal has been said about this omnipresent development that I don’t want to rehash the same thing here. It is, notwithstanding, imperative to take note of that Sinn’s most recent group of chronographs appear to be outfitted with the Sellita SW500 type, a drop-in substitution for 7750. This is without a doubt a consequence of the new ETA press on outsider makers by the Swatch Group. It would be your smartest option to contact your approved vendor to discover what type is ticking away inside any expected buy. By the by, I’ve heard beneficial things about the SW500 and am sure that Sinn makes whatever strides important to guarantee they’re putting out a strong item. In the event that anybody has any drawn-out experience with the SW500, kindly ring in beneath in our remarks segment. We’d love to hear your musings.

Fun Fact About Sinn Watches

The 356 is sold on either a calfskin tie ($1,710) or an H-interface wristband ($1,930). I selected the H-connect armband and would encourage anybody considering the 356 to do likewise. Sinn’s H-connect wristbands are known for being both agreeable and very much made, and the 356 looks incredible on the armband. Outwardly, the armband adds some weight to the watch, and its weight gives a decent equilibrium to the weight of the case.

Sinn Watches cautions against utilizing the quickset capacity somewhere in the range of 9 PM and 3 AM. Doing so may prompt harm in the development since, during this particular period, the stuff wheels that are utilized for changing the date are locked in.

Instructions to Use the Chronograph

Prior to getting into how to utilize a chronograph, we should initially acquaint ourselves with the pieces of the watch that are worried about the chronograph. To begin with, we have the watch’s recycled which likewise works as the second hand for the stopwatch. For the stopwatch hour and moment hand, we’ll be taking a gander at two out of the three sub-dials. The sub-dial by the 12 o’clock position estimates the minutes for the stopwatch. In the interim, the one by the 6 o’clock position has the stopwatch hour hand.
