Sinn has released two more limited edition watches for the Japanese market. Both the watches, Sinn reference 556 CR and 556 BR are based on the Sinn 556. Both the 556 CR and BR are a limited edition run of 150 pieces each. And both the watches share the same specifications with the standard Sinn 556 but there are some minor differences between the three watches.
The major difference between the watches are the dial colours, with the 556 CR having a beige dial, the 556 BR a brown dial, while the standard 556 has a black dial. The 556 CR will have a mix of Arabic and baton hour markers, while the 556 BR will have all baton hour markers. Both the 556 CR and BR will not come with the date complication. The 556 CR will be fitted with black luminous hands while the 556 BR will have white luminous hands. The hour markers on both watches are luminous as well.
Both the 556 CR and BR share the following basic specifications:
Functions: hours, minutes and seconds
Case: stainless steel, 39 mm diameter, 10 mm thin, 20 mm lug width, screw down case back and crown
Crystal: sapphire with AR coating front and back
Movement: Automatic ETA 2824-2, 25 jewels, 40 power reserve
Water resistant: 20 ATM
The watches are expected to retail for about $1,840 USD.

I have seen both the watches, and have to say that they look smaller than the 39 mm diameter the watch spots. Even with the fact that it is all dial, it still looks small. I like the black lume on the 556 CR. There were other limited editions Sinn at the shop like the Sinn Military Type II. I am surprised that the watch is still available as it is a limited edition of 300 pieces and it is a left-handed watch.
