Sinn Sinn 240 St GZ Tide Indicator SIN 232

Sinn 240 St GZ – Tide Indicator

Anyone who is at home on the world’s seas – either as a skilled sailor or a keen water sports enthusiast – knows how important it is to keep an eye on the weather. The tides are often just as important because they go a long way towards determining how things pan out. Whichever port you’re heading for, it is crucial to take a close look at the local tide table to work out the current tidal range. It is just as essential to keep checking your watch – especially if it features an interior tide bezel like the 240 St GZ. The rotating tide bezel can be used to read the relative water level of a location in terms of current tide, i.e. the time until the next high tide. All you need to know is the time of the last high tide and correlate this with the triangular mark ‘HW 1’ on the rotating bezel. This can be taken for example from a tide table or tide calendar. The hour hand can then be used to read off the current water level on the rotating tide bezel of the 240 St GZ. You can also read off the expected relative water levels for any given time up until the time of the next high tide, which is then shown at the position ‘HW 2’.

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.
