    EZM13 is sadly sold, just to heavy.

    For the guy who hates scratches, wearing the Tegimented Sinn is very comforting.

    I owned an 857 for a while and really enjoyed it, the tegimented case is amazing, I owned it for 3 years and not a single scratch.

    ... and for the guy who works in a wet environment fill that tegimented case with inert Argon (Ar) gas and use a copper sulphate filled capsule to absorb moisture that might get through the seals. EZM1.1:

    ACFE9A8F-1E27-4CC1-B242-C5D171FD1ACB.png Fell in ❤️ with the Damaszener at the WB road show in NYC last Dec... but glad I got mine from a private sale a few weeks ago. Fun watch. A real “panzerwagon”... One of my few non vintage. A big departure from my 556I ...But Sinn builds them well. ... hey. Live once right?

    Here is my only Sinn a Sinn 103 with a 7760 hand wind movement. A older one when Sinn still owned the company. Traded a Benthos 500 for it some years ago thought it would save some cash plus I had to many watches at the time. Like the patina on the lume and the bund sweep hand and single date window kind of a rare one.

    This is a nice one!

    Have same Sinn with handwind Valjoux 7768 as Moonphase.
    Sinn made only about 600 pieces, most of them with automatic.
    My Sinn moonphase has a handwind Valjoux 7768, a steel caseback and the old case:

    I picked this one up in an auction, knowing only a little about it:

    upload_2019-6-29_15-56-14.png

    It's a 103 St Sa E that was a Baselworld LE in 2017, the main difference being the ivory lume rather than white, and the strap it came on (which I since changed).

    I put it on a SteveO tan strap ...

    ... but concluded it was a bit too thick for my skinny wrist. A Sinn-loving friend said he loved it and asked me to get one for him. Since they only made 300, I said it would be simpler just to take mine for what it cost me. Everybody wins :)

    It's original bezel is re-united with my EZM1 3H after it was replaced with a service bezel during a service in Frankfurt a few years ago. Slight ghosting of the original is visible compared with the service bezel on the right.

    Love the EZMs. Have been casually looking at a few different models for when I'm out of watch purgatory this spring.

    Have owned several Sinn chronos and finally let go my last 356 in favour of the BigEye, which is more legible and a much easier wear for me. Still miss those syringe hands tho.

    New to me: Sinn 103 LE. Apparently, this was a very small LE of 100 units, sold only in Germany, and designed to celebrate the Cessna 140 (which had a red and navy cabin color scheme).

    Lately, I've been wanting a watch that would actually be useful for me at work doing video production. I've been thinking that a chronograph with a countdown bezel would be the best tool for me. And, since I don't have money for a Blancpain Air Command, Sinn looked to have the most options with those features.

    I wasn't initially interested in Sinn. I found the overall design of the instrument watches to busy, the logo too whimsical for a tool watch, the syringe hands too anemic. But, the more I looked at the brand, the more I began to respect the brand's devotion to functionality and precision. And, now that I have the watch, I must say I'm really enjoying it.

    The case is tall (17mm!) and more polished than I'd like - but it's fun to wear, helpful for timing tasks, and it's currently keeping better time than any other mechanical I own (averaging +1.5 sec a day at the moment!)

    Tall case!

    Nice lume!

    A little too much on the red strap:

    I'm thinking I like it best on the nato. Makes it feel more like a tool watch.

    The 104 has been my daily wearer for the past couple years. One of the most legible watches I've ever seen. I use the countdown bezel for cooking all the time. It has been an amazing timekeeper too; within COSC every time I've bothered to check.

    Unfortunately, it's probably going to get less wrist time now as I have a Speedmaster on the way. But I expect it to make it's way back into rotation after the honeymoon period.
