    You should go to a WatchBuys.com roadshow and try on the stuff they offer on their website. It can really seal the deal for yourself.

    How do people like this Sinn? I'm thinking of pairing this with a dark brown strap with contrast stitching.

    I like Sinn, but if I got one it would not be a 7750 in a derivative design. Sinn is all about dive/military watches.

    I kinda like that one because it reminds me of IWC's Pilot Chronos.

    I want to get a Sinn. Either the new Regulateur or the Lufthansa Cargo.

    Perhaps there it's the Germanic-horology influence that you are referring to.

    The Regulateur is very nice.

    I agree that Sinn 356 looks too much like an IWC Flieger chrono for my taste... I have a Sinn 142 (Lemania movement) and it's still my favorite Sinn. I'm also a huge fan of the EZM-4 and like the EZM-3 and 144 a lot. Most of the other Sinn, I don't care too much for. Regulateur is nice but I find that it lacks the Sinn DNA for some reason...

    I like the Sinn Flieger, but I wouldn't get one if an IWC Pilot was what I really wanted...

    I think the brown strap with contrast stitching would look good, though.

    Nice B&R - how thick is that watch?

    Pretty chunky. 44mm case, 15mm height. But the curved shape of the case makes for a good fit on the wrist and it wears like a 42mm

    See here on the right how the case is shaped vs. a Tutima with flatter lugs
