Sinn 856 on Bracelet

Just how functional can a watch be? This is a question we've been asking ourselves since founding the company. And the answer? Our cockpit navigation clocks. Conceived for the instrument panels of aeroplanes and helicopters, and optimised to provide rapid and clear readability, they are specifically designed to offer time measurement in its purest form. And they have now inspired us to create a watch with these same characteristics as well as Magnetic Field Protection of up to 80,000 A/m to complement our range of instrumental chronographs. The dial design ensures especially clear readability: Maximum contrast of the hands, indices and numerals against the glare-free black dial. â€â€Â Extremely large numerals for intuitive orientation even in low light levels. Striking hand profiles. Special long-lasting, luminous paint on the minute and hour hands and indices to ensure accurate reading even in adverse conditions.

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.
