Sinn Introduces Four New Watches for MunichTime

Sinn has just announced four new limited edition watches in anticipation of Germany’s watch fair, MunichTime.

Two of these are the beloved 41-millimeter 104 St Sa with either an anthracite or blue burst dial. Sinn has used these dials before to excellent effect on their 556, transforming those clean-cut pilots tools in to surprisingly dressy watches. On the sportier 104, the black rotating bezel frames the gray and blue dials to form an interesting mash-up of dressiness and utility. As an owner of the 556 anthracite, I can attest to the lovely mellow shimmer of that dial.

The 104 houses a Sellita SW220-1 automatic movement with day-date complication, measures 11.5 millimeters thick, and is robustly water resistant (200 meters / DIN8310) anti-magnetic (meets DIN 8309) and shock resistant (exceeds ISO 1413). Lume throughout the hands, dial, and bezel keep it legible in all situations, while its polished case with traditional lugs keep it classic in style.

The 104 models will sell for $1330 on leather, $1560 on Sinn’s H-Link bracelet, and $1630 on the Fine Link Bracelet.

The 1800 Damaszener is a limited edition of Sinn’s 43-millimeter 836 that came out earlier this year, here rendered in Damascus steel. Damascus is a combination of two stainless steels that are folded in on each other, resulting in a marbleized effect that will be unique to each of these 100 watches. Even the crown, caseback, and pin-buckle are in Damascus, offering up a completely unique look. Impressively, the mid-case and dial are cut from a single piece of steel (normally they are separate components); this method allows the swirling pattern to transverse the sapphire crystal and continue onto the bezel and sides. Sinn’s acclaimed TEGIMENT metal hardening technology makes sure the steel will look great for years and years.

The 1800 Damaszener houses the trusted ETA 2892-A2 automatic winding movement with date complication. A sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating helps provide a clear view of the textured dial. Water resistance is rated to 100 meters.

The 1800 Damaszener will sell for $8580 US.

Last but not least, Sinn has given their 1000 meter rated U1 diver a new blue electroplated face. The U1’s technologies include Sinn’s Tegimented submarine steel and their clever “captive bezel,” which requires that one push on the bezel to set it, thus preventing any accidental movements that could jeopardize a diver.

At 44 millimeters wide and a full 14.7 millimeters thick, the U1 has always been an unabashed tool watch. Its minimalist design and clean lines are striking and highly legible, and this blue colorway is a welcome addition to the U1 lineup.

Inside the U1 is the self-winding Sellita SW200-1 movement (the beefier version that is claimed to be more resistant to shock). With excellent specs, around 40 hours of power reserve, and a date complication, this movement is a trusted machine ready to take all sorts of abuse.

The U1 sells for $2080 on the rubber strap and $2160 on the H-Link Bracelet.
