I've bagged one of these but it hasn't arrived yet - it was a bit of spur-of-the-moment thing as it looked to me like the old Heuer Bunds, and I love acrylic glass.
But i know little about them, or anyone who's had one.

Any owners on here with a view on them? (It's also my first Sinn)

Re: Sinn 256 - what's the consensus?

I personally like the 256 (I have a 256 Ty on bracelet coming from Germany next week :-!) but they are probably not everyone's cup o' tea at 38.5mm... plus I hear that they are being discontinued... but definitely a cool, smaller cased Sinn!

maybe some other 256 owners will chime in?

good luck with your decision and happy hunting!

cheers,
Peter

I've always liked the 256...

Very similar to the 156.

Friction bezel, 7750 mvmt, acrylic glass.

would look sweet on a bund strap.

nice pick up. you won't be disappointed.

I know they're a bit smaller, and I'm used to 40mm and above, but recently had a Fortis Cosmonaut's Chrono (Lemania version) and that was about 38mm - and I found something really refreshing in a smaller watch. I think there may be a re-surgence of popularity on them!

I'll get some piccies up when I finally get the 256 on my wrist!!

Here you go bhall41 . . . I just picked this one up! For size reference, my wrist is roughly 7.25.

Cheers. Looks pretty good on your wrist, even at 7.25 ". Are you happy with the purchase?

I have sold my Sinn 356 to finance a 256 - I prefer the bezel on the 256, as well as the hands.
