Sinn 556 vs. Omega Aqua Terra quartz?

Debating on possibly getting a Sinn 556 (with steel bracelet) or the Omega Aqua Terra quartz. Both have clean lines and simple designs on the dials. A preowned Aqua Terra quartz is in the same price range as a new Sinn 556.

Which one would you choose?

sinn hands down! if the omega was a high-end quartz, then i might opt for the omega (i think it looks better than the sinn).

Omega over 556 cuz the 556 is too entry level a Sinn to be compared to Omega...a Sinn if it were U1/U2 or other higher-end Sinn...just my pick :)

Spoke with Rob at Watchbuys (Sinn AD) who was more helpful than anyone I've ever talked to about watches and after getting into the details, he recommended some larger versions for me...but I think that 556 is just so classy and smooth looking.

I love my Sinn, it keeps great time and is very user friendly, especially the tegimented style
