That is the only one that does anything for me, at least initially.

Only 100m whereas their other similar looking 556/656/856 stuff is 200m as I recall.

Size is nicer for larger wrist, but 43mm all dual will be a large appearance.

The others are just ok IMO.

How big is 936? Looks good to me.

Edit: just read it's 43mm - NICE!

That 936 is hot, as well as the blue 103.

So other than the 936, essentially minor variations of existing models. Maybe I'm jaded but I think Sinn is in a design rut.

I was a little surprised as well. Apparently the crystal is very expensive to produce.

The 836 and 936 certainly aren’t groundbreaking, but they are entirely new watches. They don’t do that very often.

I’m no watch designer. Coming up with something brand new is difficult.
Anything I’m capable of working on would just be improving an already good design, like I did with the Pro.

You don’t take compliments well.

BTW, your butt does look big in those yoga pants.

The 836 looks like an up-sized 556 without crown guards. Maybe a new watch for Sinn, but a variation on the 556 IMHO.

I’m skimming from work, does it have a special crystal on this one?
Best improvement they made was no screw pushers

Now- to make it truly a classic- take the 103 acrylic and install that nice blue dial in it.

The crystal is sapphire designed to mimic the appearance of the acrylic.
I would have just used the acrylic.

I'm a piss lume fan, so it is right up my alley. The cost is prohibitive for me.

Oh yes I see... and the bezel. That’s why it looks so good. And the height is 16 and not 17

I really would love to try it out. But I’m for sure a no go for 3k. I mean, it’s still a 103.

A used 103 acrylic for $13-1500 is such a good deal- even more now. And classic.

Nothing offensive, but nothing super compelling for me either.

I like the metallic hands on the 836, but I really need the markers to match.

The 836, crisp and clean at 43mm, does it for me, in theory.

I am still hoping for the 203 ARKTIS to make a return visit.
