Sinn is a German luxury watch brand that was founded in Frankfurt in 1961 by Helmut Sinn. The company initially focused on producing navigation cockpit clocks and pilot chronographs for professional pilots and military personnel, but later expanded its product line to include diving watches, sport watches, and dress watches. Sinn watches are known for their high quality, durability, and technical innovation, and many of them feature advanced functions such as chronographs, GMT, and flyback mechanisms. The brand is particularly popular among aviation and diving enthusiasts, as its watches are designed to withstand extreme conditions and provide accurate timekeeping in demanding environments. When it comes to watchmaking, Sinn is definitely one of the brands that have made a name for themselves, especially with the 556 A, one of the first watches ever tested by the watchmakers. Now, a few weeks away from Watches & Wonders, they have just unveiled a new line: the Sinn T50, a titanium plunger declined in a very attractive triptych. Let’s take a closer look at this new watch.
Features of the Sinn T50
The T50 is the most classic of the three models, with an entirely high-strength titanium case with a bead-blasted finish. It is also equipped with sword needles, a more widely marked bezel, and an offset crown. The T50 GBDR is a two-tone version with a bezel made of Goldbronze 125, an alloy composed of 87.5% bronze and 12.5% gold. It is also less allergenic and will retain its patina more slowly than a classic bronze. Finally, the T50 GoldBronze is a limited edition of 300 copies, fully made of Goldbronze 125 and equipped with a decorated dial. All three watches have a level of technicality that Sinn is renowned for, such as a 50 bar sealing, a captive diving bezel with protection against accidental manipulation, and a Ar dehumidification technique.
The case of the T50 is made of high-strength titanium (or Goldbronze for the limited edition) with a bead-blasted finish. It is 41mm wide, 12.3mm thick, with a 20mm distance between the lugs. It also features a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment, an engraved and screwed crown, a captive graduated bezel with protection against unintentional manipulation, and a solid and screwed caseback. It has a water resistance of 50 ATM (500 meters).
The dial is either matt black (T50 and T50 GBDR) or striped decoration (T50 Goldbronze), and the indexes and hands are entirely covered with a luminescent coating. It also has a date window at 3 o’clock.
The T50 is powered by a mechanical automatic Sellita SW300-1 caliber with a 40-hour power reserve, 28,800 vibrations per hour, 25 jewels, and hours, minutes, seconds, and date functions. It also features a stop seconds function.
The watch is available with many different strap options, such as titanium, silicone, or leather. The limited edition T50 Goldbronze comes with a unique green textile strap.
The T50 and T50 GBDR are in the permanent collection, while the T50 Goldbronze is a limited edition of 300 copies. It is available now on the brand’s website with a 3-year warranty and prices ranging from €2,990 including tax for the T50, €3,750 including tax for the T50 GBDR, and €4,980 for the T50 Goldbronze.
