    What is the ranking of Sinn in the german watch hierarchy?

    I love Sinn, my favourite German watchbrand.
    I wonder how it stand in the ranking.


    Ultra luxury tier. A lange & Sohne, Moritz Grossman

    Luxury tier: Glashutte Original , Nomos

    Entry level luxury tier: Stowa, Fortis, Damasko, MeisterSinger



    Is Sinn in the luxury or entry luxury tier?

    Depending on the model, I would say.
    Sinn sell watches which could be considered entry level, whereas other models would qualify as luxury tier.

    Not easy, and maybe even unfair, to label a brand belonging to one category.
    For a few exceptional brands, Holy Trinity, I'm sure one category will apply.
    However, not for others.

    For me personally, I really don't care. My below entry level Vostok Amphibia is just as fun to wear als my, possibly, luxury tier Breitling Blackbird which is 100x times (literally) more expensive.
    It's only about enjoying the watch you wear.

    Enjoy your Sinn!

    I would put Sinn and Damasko in their own tier between 'entry level luxury' and 'luxury' though there are some models that belong firmly in 'luxury'.

    Yeah, I'd probably list them as "premium tool watch", at least Damasko and some of the Sinn's.

    It hard to classify as Sinn seem to do their own thing, i.e. premium tool watch.

    I have an EZM2 and 756. To me, Sinn is like a Porsche 911 - it's all about functional excellence and build quality. A 911 might have leather interior to make it feel luxurious but the core focus is engineering excellence. Same thing with Sinn; they may have a few models that compete in the luxury space but their core ethos is highly engineered tool watches.

    Not sure I would put Nomos on the same level as GO. I think Sinn, Nomos, and Damasko all belong in a category above Stowa, etc. and below GO.

    I definitely agree with this ranking. Sinn and Nomos are comparable in what they do respectively and the value they offer. Nomos on the dress and dress-sport side, Sinn on the tool side. I'd add Junghans and Archimede to the Stowa group.
