When you need a serious watch for a serious job, few brands out-pace Sinn Watches 556i Replica for hard-wearing watches that can keep up with even the most demanding of conditions. Announced at Baselworld last year, this is the Sinn EZM 9, a TESTAF certified pilots watch that is the ultimate expression of Sinn’s three hand models. Designed to be capable, legible, and nearly invincible, the Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF is the watch equivalent of speaking softly whilst carrying a big stick.
Launched in the early 90’s, Sinn’s EZM moniker loosely translates to “Mission Timer.” While Sinn doesn’t exactly make any watches that I would describe as whimsical or delicate, the EZM line takes the Sinn ethos to its logical end point. While the Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF is the sort of watch you could comfortably wear any day of the week for decades on end, I bet it would be just as comfortable on a summit bit of Everest.
When I hear the term “tool watch,” I inevitably think of one of two archetypes – a vintage Rolex Submariner (tool watch genesis) and modern Sinn models like the U1, the 857 UTC or this Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF. The Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF’s specs speak for themselves, starting with a 44 mm titanium case with TEGIMENT scratch resistance and a bead-blasted finish. The Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF is 200m water resistant and DIN 8310 compliant, along with being shock resistant to DIN 8308 and anti-magnetic to DIN 8309. Both the crystal and the bezel insert are sapphire, and the bezel itself uses Sinn’s captive system that secures the bezel from being knocked off or rattled loose.
Being a TESTAF certified pilots watch, the Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF is low pressure resistant and can function in temperature extremes including -45C to +80C (-49F to +112F). The Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF is also protected against humidity (which could cause the crystal to fog) thanks to Sinn’s AR-Dehumdifying technology that uses a combination of drying capsules, EDR seals, and protective gas fillings to ensure the interior of the watch case is kept dry and the crystal clear of fog (Sinn’s full explanation here).
Either way, the Sinn Watches France Replica Hunting Watch 3006 will soon be accessible on either stitched leather, matching green rubber, or a satin five-link bracelet, with a beginning price of $3,970 on leather. Sinn is known for producing trusted, well-built tool watches usually at an affordable price point. Having a chronograph, bi-directional countdown bezel, day-date index, and crown-guards, this is a watch built for a functional and dependable daily wearer from the category I would call ‘vintage-inspired pilot chronographs.’ The 103 has been a staple of Sinn’s product lineup for many years now — in one form or the other. This latest variant embraces its vintage roots with the usage of faux-patina lume on the mark and hands.Collectors familiar with chronograph moves will recognize that the Sinn 103 is powered with the Valjoux 7750. The biggest giveaway is of course, the dial, which has the three-dial layout with sub-dials in 12:00, 6:00, and 9:00. Of all the contemporary chronograph moves still in production, I feel the Valjoux 7750 is the only one with this particular sub-dial design. This is a suitable movement to get a tool watch as it’s automatic, time-tested, trustworthy, and comfortable to watchmakers and therefore, easy to keep and support. The Valjoux 7750 in the Sinn 103 is shock-resistant, has anti-magnetic protecting, and supplies 42 hours of electricity reserve.With case dimensions of 41mm wide and 17mm thick, there’s no escaping that the Sinn 103 is a rustic watch. Though, considering using a screen caseback at a 200m water resistant instance together with the domed sapphire crystal onto the dial, it should not be too sudden. However, this view is much thicker than several mechanical chronographs and you would find tucking it beneath a sleeve pretty tough. Moving on, the situation is machined from stainless steel and is polished all over. I feel the bezel is made of steel as well and some collectors might find this disappointing as more sophisticated materials like ceramic would have provided better longevity.
The Sinn Watches Online Sale Replica EZM 9 TESTAF uses a Sellita SW 200 automatic movement which is basically an alternative to the common but capable ETA 2824. Hours, minutes, seconds, and a date display at three, the SW 200 uses 26 jewels and runs at 4Hz. As Sinn didn’t exactly hold back on other technologies in the Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF, the use of a more expensive movement would likely cause its already considerable list price to sky rocket. Besides, what the Sellita might lack in bragging rights, it more than makes up for in reliability, simplicity, and ease of service.
Available on leather, silicone, or a matching bracelet, the Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF starts at hefty $3940. While that price tag is in the upper range for a three hander with a third party movement, Sinn doesn’t make cheap watches, and no corners will have been cut in the design and production of the Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF. So yes, it is a bit on the spendy side, but the Sinn EZM 9 TESTAF offers a very capable package and is a great example of a modern tool watch. Sinn.de
