Sep 3, 2020

Category: Gear

Even after the conclusion of WW2, the direct consequences and repercussions of the global conflict continued to be felt for decades, and while much of the world had returned to normal life, the same couldn’t be said for Berlin, which remained divided until the historic fall of the Berlin Wall in November of 1989. Having lived through this tumultuous time, German horological outfit, Sinn is now celebrating the 30th anniversary of the reunification that occurred on October 3 via a new limited edition dive watch.

Dubbed the Sinn U1 DE Limited Edition Dive Watch, this German-made timepiece is constructed around a 44mm case that’s made from high-strength seawater-resistant German Submarine Steel that’s been treated to a special black coating that utilizes Sinn’s TEGIMENT technology. Adorned in Germany’s national colors, the watch sports a high-gloss coating, a gold-plated second hand, rotating diver’s bezel with minute ratcheting, a submarine steel crown located at the 4 o’clock position, and a black rubber band. Water-resistant to a whopping 1,000m (or 3,280’), this limited-edition diver is kept ticking by a self-winding mechanical movement and backed by a two-year warranty. Limited to 300 units, the Sinn U1 DE Limited Edition Dive Watch is available now, with pricing set at $2,840.

Purchase: $2,840
