In the late 90's I was living in Japan. Every day I would walk past a small watch shop in Umeda Station in Osaka. The carried both Fortis and Sinn watches, and I became enamored with both the "space watches," the Fortis Classic Cosmonaut and the Sinn 142. I ended up buying the Fortis. While I love my late 90's Classic Cosmonaut, I have always regretted not buying the Sinn 142.
To me, the 140 / 142 (along with the 103) are the cornerstones of the Sinn lineup. There are a lot of other iconic Sinn models like the 156, 157 and 144, but to me, the 140 / 142 epitomizes everything that makes Sinn great. With that in mind, I would like to start a thread for folks to share their pics and thoughts on this "most classic" of all Sinn watches.
Unfortunately, I don't currently own a 142 so I cannot post a picture. The next watch I buy will be a Lemania 142, probably titanium, and I promise to post pictures as soon as it arrives!
