For 2013, the aBlogtoWatch watch gift guide will take the form of an editor’s and contributor’s wish list. Some of the editorial team has gone ahead and chosen a few of the timepieces from last year that are really high on their list. These are mostly newer watches, but ones that should be available for purchase now. So for this holiday season you’ll get a good idea of what we’ve personally wanted, and we didn’t include crazy stuff that no one can get, even if they could afford it.

There are two things about this watch that make it worth sharing. First off, the limited-edition galvanized matte blue dial. Normally sold in black, this version (ref EZM 8) is only available through December 31, 2013.
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. […]
Leaving Baselworld each year is bitter sweet because I tend to have such a good time. I don’t get to see even a third of what I would like to check out, and it is great to be among my friends and close colleagues for over a week. It is tiring however, and during final […]
One of the most notoriously difficult to find German watch brands is Damasko. They tend to make cool, high-function tool watches for a fair price. If you are a fan of Sinn, you’ll also like Damasko – and it goes without saying that Damasko’s designs are highly inspired by Sinn timepieces (which are also less […]
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 […]
So you want to buy a watch? Be it for yourself or as a gift to someone else, the following guide will help you this holiday season with a number of good choices, brands, and suggestions for various types of people. This guide is designed to lead you in the right direction when making a […]
