"Sinn 857 UTC VFR"
Comments about this watch: German precision tool was what came immediately to mind when handling this watch for the first time. Fit and finish are absolutely perfect and it looks incredible without any unnecessary design touches.
This will be taking over the number one spot in the daily wear rotation.
TESTAF Certified Pilot's WatchesLothar Schmidt, Sinn's CEO and owner had long been disturbed by a lack of technical standards for defining a "pilot's watch". As an engineer, Mr. Schmidt was fluent in standards for diver's watches, anti-magnetic watches and the many other technological standards used to manufacture watches.A widely used reference for standards is DIN, or the Deutsches Institut fr Normung (German Institute for Standardization). Oddly, he discovered there were no DIN standards to cover pilot's watches where such standards existed for example for diver's watches.The new "Technical Standard for Pilot's Watches" (TESTAF) was developed by the Aachen University of Applied Sciences and establishes the suitability for professional use as a pilot's watch.
