    For me, I would look at it that with the bracelet model you can always put it on a strap later on if you want to. However, with the strap version - because of the section between the lugs, you CAN'T add the bracelet to that version at a later date. Besides, even if you could, it would make sense to get a discount on the watch and the bracelet, as most companies don't discount the parts bought later (and I'd rather get a discount on the bracelet than on the strap).

    Thats is a solid point.

    All the same, I much prefer that watch on a strap. Id use the 6600 for another watch. : )

    Yea....but when you're playing at TC's level; what kind of junk does $6600 get you?? Bracelet all the way.

    Thanks. Went through a period of many different watches and this one def made the keepers list. Sadly if your a fan of that colour combo they discontinued it, a shame as IMO the blue indices are striking. You can still get rose gold hands/indices though which is a nice second.

    Thanks! Great build quality on Sinn, highly recommended. Good example of German watchmaking too in a market where many people presume quality only means Swiss. I'm drawn to this one but have yet to bite the bullet....

    I agree here, the FP 1185 is one of the finest movements out there. Though newer movements with power reserve of 60 hours would be handy. :)

    I wasn't in the watch market back then, did Daytona's price go up significantly when Rolex went in house in 2000?

    Always wanted to visit.

    I understand their "store" is a bit underwhelming (dodgy even? is it upstairs?) ...but they really know their stuff.
