About This Watch:
The Sinn 556i B is designed to be as sporty as it is elegant. With a blue electroplated sunburst pattern dial, diamond-cut rhodium-plated lumed hands and indices, and a minimalist dial layout, the 556i B has maximum readability.
The History: Founded in 1961 by flight instructor and former WWII pilot Helmut Sinn, the Sinn Watch Company began developing both pilot chronographs and navigation cockpit clocks. Helmet Sinn’s mission was to produce durable timepieces in extreme conditions. In 1994, the company came under the direction of Lothar Schmidt, who has been the driving force behind the engineering and technological advances that Sinn has implemented in their watch-making techniques that continue today.
The Watch: The Sinn 556i B features a 38mm satin-finish stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal and an exhibition case back. The blue electroplated dial features a sunburst pattern, with rhodium-plated lumed indices, a minutes track, and rhodium-plated hour and minute hands. Powered by an ETA 2824-2 movement, the Sinn 556i B has a power reserve of approximately 38 hours and a water resistance rating of 200 meters.
The Details: This Sinn 556i B comes on the Sinn H-link stainless steel bracelet. Some wear is visible on the bezel and case, as shown in the photographs. This timepiece includes the inner and outer boxes, strap-changing tools, and the instruction manual.
