For 2015, Sinn has released the limited edition 103 A Sa B watch, hearkening the beautiful blue tones of cult favorite Sinn 203 Arktis. Blue happens to be hot this year (if you didn’t notice), and I am glad that watch makers ranging from those producing fashion items, to companies known for making seriously high-function tool watches, like German Sinn, are embarking on the complicated task of releasing their own blue-colored watches.
This is a finely finished dress piece in precious metal — a cooperation between three German companies who each bring specialist skills to the table. The Sinn 6200 WG Meisterbund I is cased by the exact same manufacturer that provides A. Lange & Söhne, provides an insanely intriguing movement produced by UWD, also shows a well-decorated yet legible dial characteristic of Sinn Spezialuhren. While it’s up against some strong competition from fellow German (not to mention Swiss) watchmakers at the price, I can envision 55 people enjoying the workmanship and watchmaking which goes into a piece like this.You don’t have to live in a family where the first week of November is an observed holiday to appreciate the arrival of Sinn’s yearly “Jagduhr” (hunting watch) collection — this year taking the form of this Sinn Hunting Watch 3006. Hell, even if your “holy trinity” does not happen to include Smith & Wesson or Cabela’s — you still may want to keep reading.Now from the fourth iteration of the yearly series, the recently announced Jagduhr 3006 Hunting Chronograph (or however you may decide to consult with it) brings a fantastic new complication to the mix: some luminescent, day/night moonphase in addition to a 24-hour index, pointer date, and a full calendar — all of which ought to prove handy for anyone who might eliminate track of time whilst bumping into a tree, waiting for game to wander into their scope.The Jagduhr show got its start on this fairly fundamental “Paul Parey” special variant 756, then continued with much more rugged offerings, such as last year’s entry dependent on the U1000, or the preceding season’s predicated on the 757 UTC pilot’s view — both of which, were essentially re-skinned in green, and didn’t bring anything fresh complication-wise into the table.
Why a complicated task? A successfully made blue watch makes the process to create a blue watch look simple, even though it is certainly not. Making a nice-looking black watch is easy, because when it comes down to it, there is just one real shade of black. Blue, on the other hand, involves a whole world of tones, shades, and finishes that must work in perfect harmony on a watch in tandem with things like case materials, dials, and hands. Thus, producing a nice blue watch with just the right shades that appeals to the most people is tough – perhaps that is why Sinn Watches Website Replica feels that there will be only 500 takers for this very attractive Sinn 103 A Sa B.
The Sinn Watches Resale Value Replica 203 Arktis is still one of my favorite Sinn watches out there – even though that list is quite long. The Arktis is functional and beautiful in a way that gracefully elicits the cold temperature exploration theme Sinn was going for. Unfortunately, the 203 Arktis is no longer produced, but Sinn has a nice habit of “making old watches new again,” by releasing updated new version of old watches. I have been patiently waiting for a more modern Sinn 203 Arktis, and I hope that this pretty blue version of the Sinn 103 is a step in that direction. I will go so far as to call the Sinn 103 A Sa B the “Arktis of 2015.”
In a 41mm-wide by 17mm-thick steel case, the Sinn Like Watches Replica 103 has Sinn’s Captive rotating bezel and “Ar” dehumidifying technology (a capsule that absorbs moisture that may leak into the case). Water resistant to 200 meters, the Sinn 103 is also quite anti-magnetic and shock-resistant. At heart, the Sinn 103 is a pilot watch. So, now, you have a pilot watch that makes you think of flying in freezing temperatures.
The hour and minute hands of the Sinn 6200 WG Meisterbund I’m slim, could be described as leaf-shaped, and contrast well against the anthracite dial without obscuring the view. The tiny seconds counter at 6 o’clock utilizes a matte disc to distinguish itself from the rest of the dialup, also features its own railroad trail with Arabic numerals marking every 10th second. At a glance, there may be no doubt that this isn’t a Swiss timepiece — true that is being celebrated here instead of concealed.Through the sapphire crystal display caseback, the hand-wound grade UWD 33.1 is shown. This is the same caliber that’s featured in the previous rose gold 6200 Meisterbund I, and it’s at least as beautiful here. Marco Lang of Lang & Heyne watches is the man behind UWD — that also creates very finely finished watches in traditional German style — and his experience shows here. The motion is made from nickel silver (also called German Silver or Maillechort), which has a silver-like appearance when fresh but will tarnish a creamy yellow with age. The grade UWD 33.1 also comes equipped with a hacking seconds mechanism for precise time-setting, and is anti-magnetic according to DIN 8309 (approximately 4 800 A/M, or amperes per meter). The crown wheel and ratchet are additional sunburst-decorated by hand.
This blue Sinn Watches Used Replica 103 A Sa B has an electro-plated blue dial with matching bezel insert. The slight sunburst polish on the dial gives it a slight glossy touch, but the legible hands and hour markers maintain the utilitarian feel of the 103 collection. What I also really like about the Sinn 103 is that it was one of Sinn’s first “all around watches” that were designed for a primary purpose but were also good for a range of environments and uses. The Sinn 103 still does that very well, but is accompanied by a lot of other “well-rounded” Sinn timepieces.
Inside the Sinn Watches Malaysia Replica 103 A Sa B watch is a Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement that is nicely decorated and visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. I quite like how the limited edition number of the watch is actually placed on the automatic rotor and not the caseback of the timepiece.
Sinn includes a strap changing kit as well as both a blue alligator-print leather, and gray NATO-style, strap. As this is a limited edition model, I would have liked to see Sinn offer a real blue alligator strap, as I think that would have made the watch look visually even more impressive. Perhaps most people will, however, wear the Sinn 103 A Sa B on the cool NATO-style strap – on which this particular style of military watch appears particularly handsome. The Sinn 103 A Sa B watch is limited to 500 pieces and in Germany has a price of 1,999 Euros. Price in the USA is $2,230 via watchbuys.com. sinn.de
