The world of pilot’s watches is a crowded one, with seemingly a new model, line or brand dedicated to the style coming out every day. But not all are created equal, and not all are made to truly be worn by pilots. Naturally, most of us are not pilots, myself included, and don’t need something that is truly to spec, but often the same technologies and details that make them fit to fly also just make them long-lasting, tough-as-nails tool watches with bold and aggressive designs. Of the few brands that offer something truly meant for the cockpit, Sinn’s watches go the furthest, offering the most cutting-edge tech as well as TESTAF certification, authenticating their credibility.
We’ve looked at many a Sinn before on w&w, from the classically styled pilot’s chronos 103 and 356 to the clean and purposeful 556i and 240 to the mission-ready EZM 13 diver’s chronograph, all of which offer a great value for their build quality, style and functionality. Today, we’re going to take a look at a watch that sits at the top of Sinn’s food-chain, the EZM 10. Packing more technologies than most brands will ever develop, a unique modern design, an in-house modified 7750 that recreates the function of the Lemania 5100 and TESTAF certification, the EZM 10 is quite possibly the most serious pilot’s chronograph on the market.
Of course, all of those features come with a cost, making the EZM 10 at $5,290 one of Sinn’s most expensive pieces. That said, compared to luxury brand offerings at the same price, or frankly double and triple that price, the EZM 10 stands alone with its feature set. Like all Sinn’s, it offers a unique value, one that is based on an honest though not cheap price for something high-end and unique. With the EZM 10, you also have a watch that is very specific and designed as an instrument, and while useable as an everyday watch, likely will appeal to die-hard pilot and chronograph fans, as well as people who need the level of tech inside. And for those people, there really is nothing else quite like it.
