It’s been 25 years since the now iconic (yes, I’m giving it that word) Sinn EZM1 was first introduced. The watch set the template for what would become Sinn’s most capable collection of tool watches, and has since become the subject of many a tool watch collector’s fascination. We’ll get the full story of this watch in an upcoming missed review with the original, suffice to say that Sinn released a second version of the watch in the EZM1.1 in 2017. The follow up made a few changes to the original, most notably growing from 40mm to 43mm in diameter, and using modern movement instead of the Lemania 5100 that appeared in the original. For the 25th anniversary of the EZM1, Sinn is bringing back the EZM1.1 for another limited edition round, this time, in black.
The newest model, dubbed the EZM1.1 S, will be limited to 500 units, just as the first edition was back in 2017. The design remains largely unchanged, meaning the same centrally mounted timing hands stacked atop one another, a date under 3 o’clock, and a countdown bidirectional bezel. All of this placed within a new hard coated black Tegimented case with Ar dehumidifying capsule in the lug, and crown and pusher placement at the left.
