Sinn, the German maker of overbuilt tool watches and one of our favorite brands here at Worn & Wound, is retiring some classic models from their catalog. According to our friends at WatchBuys, Sinn’s exclusive direct retailer in North American, they recently received a final shipment from Sinn for some of the references that have been put out to pasture, so we thought we’d offer a heads up to our readers before these watches are gone for good. And they’re moving fast.
So, what’s on the chopping block, and what’s left to get?
The 75X Range
The 75x range is getting the axe. This is a bit of a bummer for me personally. One of the first “big” watch purchases I ever made was my 756 chronograph, and it was a major part of my rotation for a long time. It’s a hard-wearing, super-legible pilot’s chronograph inspired by cockpit instrumentation, and it perfectly embodies the Sinn ethos.
One of the coolest watches in this range, and it looks to be gone already, is the 756 Diapal Tegimented. What’s especially unique about this particular model is the Diapal component, which means that the watch features an oil-free escapement that helps to increase service intervals because you won’t have to worry about the oil drying up over time. Of course, you also get the Tegimented case here, hardened to 1,200 Vickers, which is five times harder than stainless steel. Other specs include a copper sulphate capsule and an inert gas fill for absorbing any possible moisture that may make its way inside the case, and an anti-magnetic cage.
