-There's a few key differences you may want to consider to aid you in your decision:
-Only you can tell whether you think you'll be happy or not; however, you may find that even if you're happy with whichever watch you choose, after some time you'll start wanting another. And another. And yet another...Well my first choice was 556 you think that my choice will satisfy me if i have it? than to prefer 656? is it worth it the money?:think:
-Maybe it can be done, but you'd lose the display back, for sure.I wish there was an antimagnetic 556
Well, it would assume that the 556 dial is made of soft iron, which I doubt. I don't think they'd run off one dial in a different material as a special. But I guess there is no harm is asking. As for the display back LOL I really could lose that quite comfortably ;-) Looking at ETA movements does not really get me going. The novelty fizzled out after a few days on my Glycine Airman. I don't know why they don't do it as a regular model. I guess most people buy it more for the looks than the specification. Cheers!-Maybe it can be done, but you'd lose the display back, for sure.
As the case and movement are the same, I would not be surprised if you could simply order a 656 with a 556 dial and date wheel, for all practical purposes resulting in an antimagnetic 556.
Sinn has been known to be quite accomodating when it comes to special orders; I'd drop them a line and ask, if I really wanted an antimagnetic 556.
-Or that there's a soft iron lining behind the dial; I seem to recall (ever so vaguely) that this topic has been raised before, and someone who had disassembled his 656 claimed that this was indeed the case.Well, it would assume that the 556 dial is made of soft iron, which I doubt.
Yes that sounds quite probable. For sure! Thanks for pointing my :-!nose in the right direction! :-! I'd have to be careful or I'd end up buying a 144 Diapal as well LOL...one thing is certain, I am fated to own another Sinn!

There's only one way to know for sure, though. Ask Sinn and see what happens. (Oh, and let the forum know how it turns out, of course!)
