With its foundations in Frankfurt Am Main, Germany in 1961, Sinn
over the years has "quietly" grown into one of the most respected
watch brands based in
Sinn is owned and managed by Lothar Schmidt, formerly production director with
IWC and A. Lange & Sohne. Mr. Schmidt is an engineer, and over the years has led
the Sinn team in creating a number of patented technologies that genuinely
benefit the watch, its technical operation and the maintenance of the movement.
Sinn pioneered the use of oil in watches to achieve extreme depth, in addition
to the DIAPAL technology that allows the movement's most important bearings to
do without lubrication.
Sinn's Tegiment processing hardens cases to 1200 HV or more, resulting in a
watch case that is highly scratch resistant and many times the hardness of
standard stainless steel. And their use of inert gasses with copper sulphate
capsules creates a humidity free environment for the protection of both the movement and oils.
Sinn is not only about technology - they make great looking watches whose
designs hold up over time. Sinn's many fans around the world have supported this
brand since its inception, and now Sinn is a leader in high functionality
watches featuring new and exclusive technologies.
