FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION IS THE NOTORIOUS SINN 103 DATING FROM THE EARLY 80s RUNNING ON A VALJOUX 7750 WITH ORIGINAL BOX AND SERVICE PAPERS FROM SINN.  

 

  • CASE: MASSIVE SOLID STEEL CASE IN GOOD VINTAGE CONDITION.   THIS GUY MEASURES A LARGE 41mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING SIGNED CROWN BY 47mm LUG TO LUG. THIS CASE DOES HAVE SIGNS OF WEAR AND TEAR FROM YEARS OF ACTION, BUT IT IS VERY FITTING FOR A BADASS TOOL WATCH SUCH AS THIS.  THIS IS A HEAVY WATCH WITH NICE THICK FACETED LUGS AND LARGER THAN LIFE WRIST PRESENCE.  BLACK BEZEL IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE AND IS A BIDIRECTIONAL FRICTION TYPE WHICH IS REALLY A TREAT TO OPERATE AND ROTATES SMOOTHLY. THE 
 
  • DIAL: ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC FLIEGER DIALS WITH THOSE GORGEOUS LUMED ARABIC NUMERALS.  KILLER SYRINGE HANDSET IN WHITE. LUME ON THE HANDS AND DIAL ARE SUPER TORCHY WHICH IS A NICE PERK. I JUST LOVE THAT FANCY "AUTOMATIK" WHICH CURVES AROUND THE TOP OF THE HOUR COUNTER.  ONE OF THE TRADEMARKS OF THIS WATCH IS THAT ACRYLIC DOMED CRYSTAL WHICH REALLY ADDS SOME NICE DEPTH TO THAT AWESOME DIAL AND ADDS THAT VINTAGE FEEL TO IT.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS MACHO DIVE CHRONO IS POWERED BY A SWISS 17J VALJOUX 7750.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. WATCH WAS SENT TO SINN FOR A FULL OVERHAUL WHERE MANY PARTS WERE REPLACED BACK IN 2004.  THIS HAS BEEN ONE OF MY DAILY WEARS THIS PAST SUMMER AND RUNS IMPECCABLY.

 

  • I'VE GOT THIS SINN 103 ACRYLIC MOUNTED ON A SUPER COMFY AND HIGH QUALITY CLOCKWORK SYNERGY GREY CORDURA STRAP WHICH MAY BE THE BEST SET-UP I'VE SEEN FOR THIS WATCH.  I BOUGHT THIS CHRONO FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER WHO PURCHASED IT NEW IN THE EARLY 80s.  HE SENT THIS ONE OFF TO SINN IN 2004 TO HAVE IT FULLY OVERHAULED AND MANY PARTS REPLACED.  THE CASE IS ORIGINAL AS IS THE MOVEMENT, BUT THE DIAL, CROWN, BEZEL, HANDSET, AND CRYSTAL WERE ALL REPLACED WITH OEM PARTS FROM SINN.  ALL OF THIS IS DOCUMENTED IN THE ORIGINAL PAPERS FROM SINN.  INCLUDED IS THE ORIGINAL INNER/OUTER BOX AS WELL AS THE ORIGINAL BRACELET WITH WHAT LOOKS TO BE ALL THE ORIGINAL LINKS.  I HATE TO PART WITH THIS ONE, BUT....I JUST HAVE TOO MANY PIECES RIGHT NOW, SO I'M CONSOLIDATING A BIT.
