Always a fan of a well-sorted diver, these new models from Sinn have been flirting with my wallet since we first saw them at BaselWorld last week. The all-new Sinn T1 and T2 divers offer a different perspective on the tool diver platform we’ve come to expect from Sinn after such hits as the U1, U2 and UX divers.

Dive watches, especially Sinn, are arguably the ultimate tool watches. They are typically rugged, water resistant, and usually offer some means to measure elapsed time. However, few use their dive watches outside the office. “Desk-diving” is the most common destiny of a modern dive watch and to highlight the irony…
When it comes to watches, we all have our particular tastes – one person may love chronographs, and another may opt for a simple three-hander. What we can all appreciate though, are a handful of attributes that a single brand has built into their entire lineup: Impeccable German aesthetics Solid build quality Impressive mechanical movements [...]
German Sinn watches are known for serious professional-use timepieces and not much else. A design-oriented novelty watch, no matter how well-made, just isn’t part of their DNA. That doesn’t mean they haven’t dabbled in fanciful things though.
Over a year ago I waxed poetic on the upcoming Sinn EZM 10 when I introduced the watch here. Later I was able to get my hands on the lovely Teutonic uber watch and I am smitten all over again. Sinn watches hold a special place in my heart because the brand exists in a total bubble. They totally do. They create very useful and durable mechanical watches for a world that probably doesn’t need them as much as Sinn thinks they do.
Sinn has announced the release of a limited edition chronograph in partnership with Paul Parey publishing. For those not in the know (myself included), Paul Parey is a German publisher of a wide range of hunting and fishing magazines.
I just got finished using a German proxy server to trick Sinn’s website into thinking I was viewing it from their homeland. Why did I do this? To get the price of this new 857 collection watch for you.
German Sinn timepieces are really hard for us tool watch lovers to resist. Often stalwart in their new products, over the last few years they have been a bit more trendy and playful. While I don’t know first hand, I have a feeling that the Bell & Ross success was a major eye-opener for them. [...]
This will be German Sinn’s new flagship rough activity watch, and the tenth watch to bear the EZM title. I quite love this watch and further find it interesting that it is quite retro in design in comparison to where the EZM series was going. Though not like 1950′s retro – which is a darn [...]
Almost under the radar comes this new Sinn 358 watch. Did I intend to make that initial statement because this is a pilot watch? No but it works. I love timepieces like this that are all tool and do not look like they are made to be worn by tools. German Sinn watches continue to [...]
Sinn has been getting real divers and desk divers alike drooling from the mouth since the 1990s with their seriously pro EZM line of watch. “EZM” stands for Einsatzzeitmesser, which roughly translates into “mission timer.” Really happy they chose to shorten that word to just “EZM.” Also sounds E-Z to say. These watches have come [...]
Die Fliegeruhr 900 FLIEGER S! Der groÃŸe Fliegerchronograph! This new tool watch from German brand Sinn is a handsome looker, and saying “screw you!” (in German) to fashion watches. This pilot style watch is a compliment to similar dive chronograph watches from Sinn. Such as the U1000. While the 900 Pilot is no longer brand [...]
I think Audi is the brand to mostly thank for this new Sinn timepiece. Back in 2004 (ish) they worked with Sinn to create a couple of limited edition watches branded “Audi Design.” Those watches (at least some of them) you can see below, and seem to be where this squareish, cushion case style came [...]
Did you know that Sinn makes ladies’ watches? Not too many of them, but they do. They are nice pieces – not what I would call pretty, but certainly handsome. To visualize this concept I am adding an image of a Greek statue of a woman. Handsome right? Not exactly “wow she is hot.” Sinn [...]
Sinn was pretty quiet this year at Baselworld 2010. I walked into their booth proudly wearing a Sinn watch myself to find not a soul that spoke English. Really Sinn? Actually, I can’t be too surprised, the competent watch maker is a ghost in the United States. With just one authorized dealer (only online), Sinn [...]
I don’t know how a watch like this slipped through the cracks. It came out just last summer as a limited edition. This is a very interesting and rare Sinn watch that is thankfully available on James List, and for not that much dough. Many of you know of the super functional and durable Frankfurt, [...]
