Since its inception in 1961, Sinn has specialized in producing high-end mechanical watches, though in more recent years the German horological outfit has developed a knack for implementing novel case constructions such as debuting the first 22-carat yellow gold timepiece in ’95 and then releasing the first-ever watch crafted from German submarine steel in 2007. And the Frankfurt-based firm now looks to carry on this tradition with the release of its latest limited edition watch, the Sinn 1800 S GG Damaszener Limited Edition.
The limited-edition watch features a 43mm genuine forge-welded BALBACHDAMAST Damascus steel case with an integrated Damascus dial and a matching Damascus screw-down crown. The already rugged case is further fortified via a black hard coating achieved utilizing Sinn’s proprietary TEGIMENT technology. The dial also boasts 18-carat gold hands adorned in a luminescent coating, as well as hand-applied 18-carat gold appliqué indices. Water and pressure resistant to 10 bar (or 100m), the 1800 S GG Damaszener Limited Edition is kept ticking via a robust Sellita SW300-1 automatic movement.
Limited to just 100 units worldwide, the Sinn 1800 S GG Damaszener Limited Edition is sold in a special edition wooden presentation box that houses an extra black calf leather strap, a strap changing tool, extra spring bars, a cleaning and polishing cloth, and a watchmaker’s loupe. Backed by a two-year warranty, the 1800 S GG Damaszener Limited Edition is available to reserve now from WatchBuys for $8,940.
