Sinn 142 ST II Automatic Chronograph
Used but mint condition Sinn 142 which is the new re-creation of Sinn’s cult classic 142. The original 142 was discontinued as it utilised the Lemania 5100 movement., the Lemania 5100 was discontinued by the parent group. Sinn wanted to continue the production of one of their best selling watches To create the 142 St II, Sinn worked with the established movement atelier Dubois-Dépraz to modify an ETA calibre 2892-A2 to create the new chronograph movement. This is know at Sinn as the Dubois-D. 2070 movement. The result is an especially clear, perfectly symmetrical dial with date at 12, sweep seconds at 3, chronograph hour register at 6 and 24 hour indication at 9. This new movement design preserves the large chronograph elapsed minute hand indicated with the red tip, which was the most distinguishing feature of the Lemania 5100. The 142 automatic chronograph is a watch amongst watches. It is made from stainless steel with the steel integrated style bracelet. It is a substantial and heavy watch which is solid and durable. It not only feels the part but also looks it as it is a purposeful and imposing looking watch. For the first time in any 142 series, Sinn has opened the back for viewing. The movement has been elaborately decorated with engraved rotor, Côtes de Genève, perlage, and blued screws, all covered by a sapphire crystal. Other features include resistance to shock and magnetic fields, water resistance to 100 meters, and bi-directional rotating inner bezel with 60 minute scale which is rotated through the crown at 10. It is reputedly the first automatic chronograph worn in space by Reinhard Furrer on the 1985 Spacelab D1 mission. The design is outstanding and has been around for a number of years, ignoring the fashion trends of the 80's and 90's, the watch has remained a constant and won a great deal of respect by sticking to the initial design principles, not least to mention it's durability, reliability and functionality. Width is 44 mm excluding crown and 46 mm including crown Lug to lug is 44 mm, Thickness is 16 mm.
