For lovers of German horology, there is no better part of the year than Munichtime, a German-centric watch expo running from the 28th of October through the 30th at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in, as the name implies, central Munich. As expected, worn&wound favorite Sinn is showing (for the full list of exhibitors, click here), and for this year’s event they’ve prepared four new cool (albeit not too unfamiliar) watches that merit a closer look.
6200 WG Meisterbund I
Following this year’s release of the 6200 Meisterbund in rose gold, Sinn’s now offering that limited model in 18-carat white gold. It’s a seemingly small change on paper, but one that packs quite an aesthetic punch, with the WG being a bit more toned down and discrete than its predecessor. It’s not often that Sinn ventures into dressier territory, but when they do, they do it right.
As we noted in our initial write up of the movement, the UWD 33.1 is made of nickel silver and features a flying spring barrel, which is a barrel supported on just one side. The balance system has six eccentric weights, which allows for adjustment and offsets the imbalance in the watch’s oscillating system. Furthermore, the regulator system allows for additional precision adjustment. The UWD 33.1 comes with a 55-hour power reserve.
The 6200 WG Meisterbund I is limited to just 55 units. The Watchbuys direct price for the 6200 WG Meisterbund I is $15,460 on leather.
