    Sinn 104... I just don't get it.

    It seems like the black dial of the Sinn 104 is highly adored in the 'watch community' but I have no idea why.

    what is so special about this watch?

    The way its built makes it look really flat and thicker than it actually is in the specs.

    can someone share some insights please. the watch looks okay but just doesn't really please my eye as much as other watches do.

    If the watch "doesn't please your eye" you really shouldn't need anyone to explain why it should...........it's perfectly fine to not like something.

    It's a watch with good lume and high WR and can pass in many situations from work to casual.

    I have one myself.

    The next watch I get will definitively, finally, and without a question, be my last one!

    I don't know about that. Sometimes when someone explains what they appreciate about something, I find myself appreciating it too with a better understanding.

    Id this is what you're talking about:

    It's a very classic look. Yeah, I can think of 10 other watches (at 1/10th the price) that have the a similar look, but the Sinn executes it very well. Better, in fact, than some watches with 2-3 times the price tag. (I'm looking at YOU, Tudor Black Bay and your UGLY hour hand!)

    I don't know about the 104, but the Sinn 857 has a matte black dial, which limits reflections and makes the watch very readable. Sinn watches are practically bullet proof, with excellent water resistance, anti-magnetic, and shock proof. Their pilot watches also have protections against loss of pressure at altitude. I'm pretty sure all Sinn watch movements are COSC chronometers. If the style or appearance doesn't appeal to you, that's fine. Watches are a lot like cars. Aesthetics matter to the buyer.

    ....probably because the 104 combines all the features of a classic aviator watch ?
    Kind regards

    Hmmm....well if the original poster can't see the beauty in the Sinn 104 (which I grant is not for everyone but then again, what wrist watch is?) then he definitely would not even be able to contemplate and appreciate the beauty and artistic design of the Sinn 6100 REGULATEUR Technik dail.

    This is one of Sinn's best IMHO.

    I wonder the same thing about Rolex subs and Omega speedies -- two of the most hallowed watches in all of WISdom. And don't even get me started on those octagonal Genta-designed monstrosities that AP manufactures...

    Like what you like, and don't sweat whether others agree.

    No, they are not - as far as I know, currently only the quartz UX Series is C.O.S.C certified.
