New MunichTime 2016 Release
This is a brand new release and is the second in their series of Meisterbund watches featuring the new UWD movement and SUG case.
This watch is limited to 55 pieces, and the case is in 18K solid white gold.
This is a limited edition of 55 pieces celebrating the 55th anniversary of Sinn, founded in 1961.
Lothar Schmidt, CEO and owner of Sinn (and SUG in Glashutte) has a history of producing some of the finest watches in the world.
His past association with IWC and Lange & Sohne, along with his 22 years with Sinn, have provided a background in watchmaking that few can match.
And one day he had an idea.
That idea was to form a cooperation between three of Germany's leaders in watchmaking to create a new watch - the Meisterbund I Series. Meisterbund translates to "Master Association", and the three companies involved with the production of this watch are:
- Sachsische Uhrentechnologie GmbH Glashutte (SUG)
- Uhren-Werke-Dresden (UWD)
- Sinn Spezialuhren
The 18K White Gold Case - SUG, Glashutte
SUG is based in Glashutte, Germany and is known for producing some of the highest quality watch cases in the world. SUG produces cases not only for Sinn, but also for a number of very expensive brands with which you are quite familiar but we are not allowed to mention.
The case is made from solid 18K white gold, and is beautifully finished with both polished and satin surfaces. All surfaces are hand polished, and sapphire crystals are used on both sides.
The Movement - UWD 33.1, Dresden
This watch features a manufacture calibre produced through a collaboration between Sinn and Uhren-Werke Dresden (UWD).
UWD is a German independent movement manufacture located near Glashutte in Dresden, Germany. The Sinn 6200 Meisterbund I is the first watch to use this movement.
The movement design and production are all made in Germany - it is not an adaptation or modification of an existing movement.
UWD's hand-wound calibre UWD 33.1 is made of nickel silver with a spring barrel supported on one side, also referred to as a flying spring barrel, and features a 55-hour power reserve.
The movement can be adjusted by shifting the eccentric weights in the balance system. This also offsets the imbalance in the complete oscillating system of the watch.
The decoration and finishing on this movement are amazing. The plates and cocks are matte finished with diamond-planed edges. The combination of matte and polished surfaces gives the movement an exquisite feel, while the diamond profiles underscore the high level of quality.
Other features of this movement include:
- Manufacture hand-wound movement UWD 33.1
- Flying spring barrel
- Power reserve of 55 hours
- Balance system with six eccentric weights
- Regulator system enables zero-play precision adjustment
- 19 bearing jewels
- 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour
- Hack feature for accurate time adjustment
- Anti-magnetic as per DIN 8309
The Watch - Sinn Spezialuhren, Frankfurt
Once the case is completed in Glashutte, and the movement is finished in Dresden, final production of this watch takes place in Frankfurt at Sinn Spezialuhren.
Although the design of this watch is more formal (commonly referred to as a "dress watch"), Sinn adds a number of technological features during final production.
First, Sinn's D3 crown design and special seals provide a water resistance to 100 meters. Next, the watch is designed to be low pressure resistant to provide stability to the sapphire crystals at high altitudes.
The watch is finished with a guilloche anthracite dial and applied numerals and indices.
This watch includes a wooden presentation box with Sinn strap, solid white gold tang buckle, loupe and metal warranty card.
How Can I Purchase This Watch?
This is a limited edition watch which will first become available in mid to late December, 2016.
Because of the hand work required to finish the case and proprietary movement, Sinn will produce only a small number of these watches each month and deliver them to us as they are completed. We will fulfill orders in the exact order in which your reservation is received.
