    Sinn 144

    Greetings ó just curious if any one has a Sinn 144? I donít see a lot of references to it, but according to Sinn it is one of their oldest designs. I like that according to the Sinn Spec Sheet it only has internal AR coating (the external AR coating frustrates me, as the scratches take away from the otherwise ruggedness).

    i think the PD Orfina may be ripe to have a revival, if not already. Iíve seen them a couple times on Hodinkee Takking Watches, and think that that type of design is due to ride the nostalgia/design wave.

    I am also wondering about the origins of the Sinn design for the 144.

    Thanks!

    The earliest 144's I've seen are essentially the same as a PD Orfina, even using the same case. Back in the day I think it was not uncommon that Helmut Sinn was sourcing parts from the same suppliers.
    See this one as an example (sourced from a sale post in the past)

    Thanks!

    I hope you are right, I've got an oddball old 144 that I'm looking to sell.

    That is an awesome GMT version. I wish they still offered the GMT with the black dial (only grey dial/diapal version seems to be current).

    Is the gmt hand a 24 hour hand, or another 12 hour hand?
