Sinn 103 St Ty Hd Hand Winding Chronograph. Limited to 1000 Pieces


Which watches embody the essence of our company best of all? The answer to this question is easy for connoisseurs of our brand: the timepieces from the 103 series, which have been part of our collection as classic pilot chronographs since the mid-1960s and have since become the defining ambassadors for our company. Some watch lovers will no doubt remember that in the early days – in addition to timepieces with automatic movements – individual models also featured acrylic glass and hand-wound movements. Is it the love of tradition and the art of watchmaking that made SINN watches so popular with such a movement? Or was it the more intensive connection to the phenomenon of time, coupled with the daily ritual of winding the watch? The truth is that this fascination is probably born of various different preferences and values.

With this in mind, the 103 St Ty Hd model is a contemporary tribute to its prestigious predecessors, as it is also equipped with shock-resistant acrylic glass and hand-wound movement with a power reserve of more than 58 hours. Furthermore, a SINN watch with a hand-wound movement from the 103 series was last officially available around 20 years ago, which makes the release of the 103 St Ty Hd model all the more special still.

The special calibre is a classic Tri-Compax chronograph dedicated to functionality: a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock on a matt black dial. The symmetrical, V-shaped arrangement of the counters in matt-silk light yellow creates a wonderfully balanced aesthetic and creative design. In keeping with this, the stopwatch second hand and stopwatch minute display are dark red for improved emphasis and thus legibility – a specification also reflected by the stopwatch minute scale. In the interests of faster time recording, the first ten minutes are shown alternately in black and red.

High-quality faceted attached appliqués adorn the matt black dial. In combination with the faceted hour and minute hands, the watch exudes elegance and, thanks to the elements with luminous effect, is also legible in the dark.

Another complication – the tachymeter scale on the interior bezel – satisfies the desire of watch connoisseurs for the precise, manual measurement of speeds from 60 km/h to 600 km/h.
Low pressure resistant, waterproof and pressure-resistant up to 20 bar, these additional features guarantee a high level of suitability for everyday use. All in all, this 103 is a worthy member of a long-established series of renowned SINN watches, which, not least because of its limited edition of 1,000 pieces, looks set to become a coveted collector’s item.

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.
