Sinn earlier this month released two special blue dial timepieces that feature the classic three-hander and also a world-time watch. These latest releases also play a significant role in extending the brand’s lineup of classic elegant watches. Up until 1999, Sinn, or better yet “Sinn Spezialuhren” as it was known back then, was thought of as a company that specialised mainly in pilot and diving timepieces. Then came along the first “Frankfurt Financial District Watch” and it marked the beginning of Sinn’s expansion into classical timepieces.
Now, Sinn is further expanding the more classic timepieces with the release of the updated Frankfurt Financial District Watch 6060B and Frankfurt World Time Watch 6060B
This timepiece has elegance and luxury written all over it. The watch has a beautiful contrasting dial which starts of with the blue -sunburst background. The hour indices are coated in white SuperLumi-Nova, which gives that sharp contrast against the blue dial background. There is also a subtle date window placed between the 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock positions. All of this is encapsulated in a 38.5mm stainless steel polished case.
The Frankfurt Financial District Watch 6068B features the same characteristics from models of the past that connoisseurs of this collection have come to known, such as the two time zones which can be read simultaneously, which on this timepiece is displayed on a 12-hour basis.
This model features a Sellita movement, the SW-300-1. This SW-300-1 is a self-winding movement that operates at 4Hz (28, 800 VpH) and gives out a power reserve of approximately 42 hours. The case back is also open in which the exquisitely decorated movement with rotor engraved bull and bear can be seen. The back of the movement is certainly eye-catching as it also features Geneva stripes and blued screws.
The Sinn Frankfurt World Time Watch 6060B watch features the same dial characteristics as the 6068B model. Enclosed in a 38.5mm case, the beautiful sunburst blue with contrasting white hour indices and hands has been used on this model as well.
The main difference between this and the Financial District Watch is that it is characterised by three time zones that can be read simultaneously. The main addition on the dial when compared to the 6068B model is the 24-hour ring in the inner portion of the dial, along with the hour indicator for the third timezone.
The engine behind the Sinn Frankfurt World Time Watch 6060B is the Sellita SW-330-1 movement. This SW-330-1 movement operates at a frequency of 4Hz (28, 800 VpH) and gives out a power reserve of approximately 42 hours. Like the 6068B model, the Sinn Frankfurt World Time Watch 6060B comes with an open case back that features the same engravings and decorations.
When purchasing either the Frankfurt Financial District Watch 6068B or the Frankfurt World Time Watch 6060B, the owner will receive a fine wooden case with a stainless-steel fine link bracelet, cowhide strap, band replacement tool, spare spring bars, an Eschenbach watchmaker’s loupe, a care cloth and also a brochure.
