The historic Frankfurt am Main factory established in 1961 that has served as the spiritual birthplace for the last two decades of Sinn watches will close at the end of the summer as the brand relocates to a larger manufactory to accommodate recent growth. This is not before it produces one more very special limited edition: the new Sinn BLU1 dive watch, exclusive to Sinn’s retail brand partner Page & Cooper based in London.
To top it all off, The Sinn 103 St Sa E is fabricated in a limited run of 300 pieces, some that I think really is exclusive unlike any of the 4-figure manufacturing runs we have seen this year. The Sinn 103 St Sa E ships on leather for $2,250 and on the H-link bracelet for $2,560. If you would prefer one of the Sinn 103s without the faux vintage lume, the non-limited models start from $1,880 — a good value proposition for a German tool Sinn Watches News Replica that’s built like a tank.

For those seeking to brush up on their German, EZM is short for Einsatzzeitmesser, or “assignment timer.” The EZM series has now been a mainstay in Sinn’s lineup for 20 decades, where it routinely showcases the brand’s latest technologies and design innovations. Therefore it goes without saying that the EZM 12 has big boots to fill, since it joins a tradition of interesting and exceptionally rugged assignment timers, all of which have been purpose-built for a few of the most demanding professions in the world.These comprise the colorful EZM 7 with its air source timer designed for firemen, or the oil-filled EZM 2b which was built for GSG 9 (the equivalent of the elite SWAT unit together with the German authorities), and is now standard-issue for the German Navy’s elite combat divers. Granted, the ultra-specific feature sets of these watches may be limiting their respective audiences in some ways, but it’s probably safe to presume that there are still enough watch lovers out there who still enjoy this exceptional approach to design, even though they are not first responders or elite special forces operators.
