Sinn needs no introduction here on worn&wound – we have featured a number of their watches over the years, and they always seem to hit right in the sweet spot of good design, excellent performance, and solid value, all of which makes Sinn a favorite brand among w&w writers and readers alike. Sinn’s Baselworld 2017 lineup is no exception – we covered a few of the highlights yesterday, and now we’ll take a look at what might be the star of bunch: the EZM 12.
Sinn’s EZM line (EZM is short for Einsatzzeitmesser, roughly translated “mission timer”) marks its 20th anniversary this year with a new watch that fits nicely into the mission timer series. The EZM 12 was designed specifically for use by rescue helicopter doctors, and although that seems like an overly-specific group to target, the features designed for that mission make this an interesting and useful watch in any time-critical task. The three major feature areas this watch provides the wearer are: efficient and legible count-down and count-up timers; quick patient pulse monitoring; and a robust, legible, and easily cleaned case.
