Sinn prides itself on making watches for military and commercial applications or for use in extremes of temperature or humidity. There are many different technologies that Sinn employs in the manufacture of their watches and most are not just marketing fluff. How many watches do you know that are filled with the inert gas Argon and have a dehumidifying capsule built in? It’s an almost James Bond approach to building a watch and that’s pretty cool.
Cons: servicing has to be done at Sinn due to Argon gas filled case, dehumidifying capsule and special oils, so cost can get a bit pricey, a brushed case would look better than the high polish
Verdict: a tool watch for the ages, this is one watch that has functionality and good looks in droves and is also a piece that you won’t see the other guy wearing. Sinn, congrats on an amazing watch!
