Well, I have been hanging around here on the SINN forum, and collecting SINN's like a magnet attracts metal filings on the beach.
I have noticed that the SINN forum has not devoted a thread to document the various limited editions and special issues that the SINN watch company
has developed and sold over the years.
Now, you may therefore say... "Well hold on there Flighty7T34, SINN does have an SINN WATCH ARCHIVE area on their website for all the old retired watches! Would that
In a nutshell ... I feel it does not. It is not complete nor does it fully encompass in scope, and celebrate all the variants and limiteds.
(aside: Kind of sad that SINN Marketing has dropped the ball in this area?)
As an example, I have a rather limited edition (100 units) of the SINN 103 which was/is known as the Zeit - Sonderedition 103 Ti Ar (also known as the "103 Ti Ar Die Zeit")(Die Zeit = The Time)
It features reddish orange hands on the chronograph seconds hand as well as the sub dial registers of the chronograph (at 12 and 6) while the running seconds sub dial's hand is white)
Also unlike the current Titanium cased 103's, this variant has both the Day and Date as well as a black face with unique reduced minute markings, and the typical 103 countdown black bezel.
The winding weight is engraved "Zeit Edition - nnn/100"
The watch features the AR dehumidification technology and also non screw down pushers on the chronograph. The Titainium bead blasted case appears to not be Tegimented.
The hour and minute hands are not the typical 103 "Syringe" style but are rather like those on an EZM 10, aircraft gauge style.
The case/box is also the typical SINN limited case, with tool, pins, extra strap and the owner's manual rather unique as it is not typical in its size and format.
SINN produced this watch in 2019.
Here is a picture
So should we build such a thread?
I do think we could all add value to the SINN forum by documenting SINN's Limited Editions.
Lastly, one of you suggested in a private message, that using Google Search could reveal some "Hidden" Sinn web pages.... yes it is true!
Here is what I found...
a) the SINN Link... https://www.sinn.de/en/Modell/103_Ti...n_DIE_ZEIT.htm
