Please note Klarna and PayPal are not available on this item

Exclusive special edition for the specialist watch magazine Chronos.

On the one hand, an eye-catching dial contrast, a matt black anodised, unusual aluminium rotating bezel and a highly domed shock-resistant acrylic glass. On the other hand, technical features such as low pressure resistance, water resistance and pressure resistance up to 20 bar: the 103 St Classic C model effortlessly balances historical design with contemporary technical values.
This special edition, which is limited to 200 pieces, has become a true favourite, thanks primarily to its appearance. Experts classify timepieces such as the 103 St Classic C, which combine black totalizers with a bright – in this case silver-electroplated – dial, as “Panda watches”. The models from the middle of the last century achieved a cult-like status among many watch lovers - also because their striking contrast was entirely in the service of optimised readability.
In terms of construction, the 103 St Classic C achieves this with the symmetrical Tri-Compax division of the totalizers for the subsidiary seconds at nine o’clock, the stopwatch minute at three o’clock and the stopwatch hour at six o’clock. Another important tool for measuring time intervals is the 12-hour countdown rotating bezel with luminous key mark, which rotates in both directions. Speaking of luminescence: for clear readability, even in the dark, the rhodium-plated indices and hour and minute hands are also filled with luminous paint.
A brown horsehide strap with a pin buckle deliberately contrasts the vintage design of the dial in colour and thus completes the iconographic overall appearance of this unique watch.

Additional Product Details

Sinn Watches was formed in 1961 by the legendary pilot and flight instructor Helmut Sinn. They began manufacturing flight watches based on his extensive aviation experience, this was primarily based on Mr. Sinn's dissatisfaction with the watches that were available for pilot and navigational purposes at that time. His own designs incorporated the features and functionality that he felt more fit for purpose as an instrument watch. This is a design philosophy that has transcended the company's culture right through to the present day. Sinn is now the world's most eminent manufacturer of high quality, precision, functional and purposeful instrument watches. From the beginning, their emphasis was on creating special purpose instruments that performed under extremely adverse operating conditions such as high speed, high and low pressures and altitudes, intense heat or pressure, extreme cold, high magnetic interference, and submergence in liquids. Sinn are becoming increasingly known for their instrument watches, and are today a force to be reckoned with as they lead the way in instrument watch design. The company changed hands in 1994 when Lothar Schmidt formerly of IWC assumed control and further expanded the boundaries of Sinn’s high tolerance manufacturing expertise. Over the past decade, Sinn has pioneered some innovative new technologies, including oil filled watch chambers to enable operation under extreme pressures, argon gas filled watches to prevent moisture infiltration, impact resistant gear suspensions, and new micro-lubricating techniques. Their timepieces are standard equipment in some of the most dangerous and adverse environments on earth - little surprise their watches are issued to the German military and elite forces. Above all the watches are manufactured and marketed to the world at large. Like the designs and their application areas, the pricing of the Sinn watches is most aggressive, making them available to most people. Due to distribution agreements Sinn watches can only be shipped to the UK and Ireland and certain countries where there is no Sinn agent assigned to that territory. Sinn watches are covered by a two or three year manufacturers warranty depending on the model.
