Sinn 6000 The Frankfurt Finanzplatzuhr
Form and function in the 6000 Frankfurt Finanzplatzuhr (Finance Place Watch). The watch is designed to commemorate the Finance district of Frankfurt, one of the busiest commercial and financial districts in Europe and the world. It is the seat of the European Central Bank as well as many other major German and non German banks operating on a global scale.
Within this global fast paced economy which is interconnected to the rest of the world by satellite and high speed digital communications – the Sinn watch is a mechanical and traditional device set apart from the technology of the financial district. Stunning good looks, symmetrical layout and highly functional – adhering to the fundaments of the financial institutions that the watch represents.
Most Sinn watches are sporty, practical or military looking. This one however is designed for more formal wear with a suit in a daily work environment, where the only bumps the watch gets is against a brief case or a computer keyboard. However whilst it is designed as a formal dress watch, it is built like a real work horse, it has the water resistance of a divers, watch, the anti magnetism and negative pressure of an aviators watch and the shock resistance of a military watch.
But finely crafted as a dress watch in an art form of watch making that Sinn understand only too well. The watch is presented ins a solid steel case that is highly polished with a matching highly polished fine linked bracelet. It has a scratch resistant sapphire crystal with anti reflective coating, protected pushers, screwed-on sapphire crystal case back, which is also anti reflective, pressure resistant up to 10 bar which is approximately 100 metres water depth. His an internal rotating bezel operated by the crown at 10.
Along with this, the UTC hand and the regular time, it is capable of reading off 3 time zones. The movement is a Valjoux 7750 with a UTC independent time zone build up – essential for people working in world trade environments.

It is antimagnetic according to DIN 8309 and shock resistance according to DIN 8308. The time is set with second hand stop mechanism, so it can be accurately set to a time signal.
