Product Details

The Sinn 104 Series has become one of the most popular in the line.

The original Sinn 104 I St Sa has no numerals on the dial but instead uses indices.

The Sinn 104 A St Sa (Arabic) adds increased legibility to this watch with Arabic numerals.

We love the look of this watch and this small dial change makes quite a difference in the overall look of the watch.

The Sinn 104 A St Sa dial is highly legible, with its three hands providing optimum readability of the time.

As an added benefit, it also features a day/date display at the 3 position with the day display in either English or German (you change the settings through the crown).

The pilot's bezel with minute ratcheting can be rotated on both sides, is securely attached to the case, and features luminous triangle as key mark at 12.

The 104 A St Sa is low pressure resistant to secure the sapphire crystal at high altitudes and is water resistant to a depth of 200 meters.

  • Case made of stainless steel, polished
  • Captive pilot's bezel with minute ratcheting
  • Sapphire crystal glass on both sides
  • Water resistant to 200 meters
  • English and German day display
  • Low pressure resistant
  • Sinn calf leather strap

WatchBuys is the official and authorized North American distributor and importer for Sinn watches.

When you purchase your new Sinn watch from WatchBuys, you'll not only get a finely engineered timepiece with excellent value for money, you'll also benefit from the WatchBuys Sinn Advantage.

WatchBuys Advantage #1

Because we are the official and authorized North American Sinn distributor and importer, your name and watch serial number will be automatically registered in our database for a Sinn manufacturer's limited warranty which we pass through.

This means that should your watch require service during the Sinn manufacturer's limited warranty period, service will be provided by Sinn in Germany when you return your watch to them. This Sinn manufacturer's limited warranty is transferable to subsequent owners as allowed by Sinn.

You are responsible for paying the shipping charges to Sinn, and all repairs that Sinn approves under its warranty are at no charge. Sinn will also pay the return shipping charges to the address you specify.

The Sinn manufacturer's limited warranty period is as follows:
  • Watches in the EZM Series: 3 years
  • Watches marked AR containing inert gas: 3 years
  • Watches in the DIAPAL Series: 5 years
  • All other Sinn models: 2 years

WatchBuys Advantage #2

As an added benefit to those who purchase Sinn watches from WatchBuys, you may choose to have your warranty repairs serviced through our US Sinn Authorized Service Center, RGM Watch Service located in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania. This added benefit saves our clients the time and effort of returning their watches to Germany for repair. This service is transferable to subsequent owners who purchase directly from the original registered owner.

Please note that you are responsible for paying shipping and insurance charges for sending your watch to RGM. Once they reach your watch in the service queue they will determine which repairs are covered under Sinn's warranty.

It is important to note that oil-filled quartz Sinn watches must be repaired in Germany (EZM 2, Hydro and UX series). If your watch meets one of these conditions and requires service under warranty, please click here for instructions on returning your watch to Sinn in Germany.

WatchBuys Advantage #3

Your watch will be repaired at no cost to you other than shipping charges to either Sinn or RGM during the warranty period. Sinn watches purchased through the "grey market" (non-authorized sources) may carry no warranty from Sinn. Sinn watches purchased through authorized overseas retailers are governed by the warranty policies of those dealers and/or Sinn, and typically must be sent to either the overseas dealer or Germany for repair.

WatchBuys Advantage #4

You'll be wearing your new Sinn watch soon after your order is placed since we stock Sinn watches and ship free using UPS Air. Plus, since we are located in the United States, there are no "hidden charges" for shipments to US residents as is the case with most overseas dealers. Such charges can add up to 15% to the cost of your new watch, and include credit card surcharges, foreign exchange credit card bank fees, import duties and taxes, and custom's broker charges.

WatchBuys Advantage #5

WatchBuys offers a comprehensive return policy with no restocking fees to US residents. Overseas dealers, including those involved in the grey market, typically don't offer a return policy, and if they do, returning a watch under the policy is both complicated and expensive due to import/export and custom's requirements. Restocking fees are also common and may range up to 15%.

Learn more about our return policies.

WatchBuys Advantage #6

WatchBuys is pleased to accept payments through PayPal, debit and credit cards. We charge no surcharges to use credit or debit cards, and because we are based in the United States your US card is charged in US dollars with no conversion or exchange rate fees.

We also accept payments from PayPal and charge no surcharges.

Please note that to pay by credit card, debit card or PayPal your account and/or card must be issued by US or Canadian financial institution and billed to a confirmed US or Canadian address.

WatchBuys Advantage #7

When you purchase your new Sinn watch from WatchBuys, you'll earn WatchPoint Rewards which accumulate and may be redeemed against future purchases.

Sinn watches feature a number of cutting edge technologies, many of which are unique to Sinn. Please note that not all Sinn watches, including the watch on this page, use all of these Sinn technologies.

Among the more notable Sinn technologies are:

Tegimented Hardened Cases

Many Sinn watches are fitted with Tegimented cases produced in-house by Sinn's case making affiliated company in Glashutte, Germany.

Standard steel used by most watch companies has a hardness of between 200 and 240 HV (Hardness Vickers is a common scale used to measure material hardness). The Tegiment process produces a hardness of at least 1,200 Vickers which is five times harder than standard steel (and on some Sinn models up to nine times harder than standard steel).

The Tegiment process is not a coating consisting of a foreign material; instead the steel itself that has been hardened using a special engineering process that creates a hardened barrier. The base material is a type of stainless steel also used for surgical implants, and the stainless steel resistance to corrosion is further improved by the Tegiment hardening process.

The primary advantages to a Tegimented case are extreme resistance to scratches and other case abrasions, as well as increased resistance to corrosion.

Please note that certain Sinn watches are fully Tegimented (case, bezel) while others are Tegimented only on the bezel. Use the links below to view both categories.

  • View Sinn watches with fully Tegimented cases.

  • View Sinn watches with Tegimented bezels only.

Dehumidification Technology

A number of Sinn models feature cases filled with inert gas. Sinn has found that filling the case with inert gas can help prevent the introduction of moisture and humidity to the case, as well as provide a more stable environment for the oils that lubricate the movement.

The proper care of any mechanical watch movement mandates that these oils maintain both their viscosity and lubrication properties.

  • View Sinn watches with dehumidification technology.

Copper Sulphate Capsules

A number Sinn models use one or more copper sulphate capsules to absorb humidity trapped inside the case. Over time these capsules will gradually turn dark blue indicating that humidity has been absorbed.

The primary benefit to these copper sulphate capsules is a more dry and stable environment for both the movement and the lubricating oils. Together with Sinn's inert gas treatment these capsules form the basis of Sinn's Dry Hold Technology.

This technology not only provides a more stable environment for the movement, but also prevents fogging of the crystal when going from hot to cold environments or from humid to non-humid conditions (such air conditioned buildings).

  • View Sinn watches with copper sulphate capsules.

Extreme Antimagnetic Protection

Magnetism can cause dramatic swings in the timekeeping of a mechanical watch movement. People are often exposed to magnetic fields without even being aware - frequent high altitude flying, metal detectors, audio and video equipment, medical equipment and computer equipment can all cause problems with magnetism.

Many Sinn watches offer extreme protection against magnetism up to 80,000 A/m. Sinn achieves these results using a number of different technologies, including special case and case back construction, soft iron components in the case and protective rings surrounding the movement.

  • View Sinn watches with extreme antimagnetic protection.

DIAPAL Oil Free Escapement

Sinn caused quite a stir when they first released their DIAPAL technology. Beginning in 1995, Sinn began work to create an oil free escapement. With any mechanical watch movement, the aging of oil, especially in the escapement can create long term problems for that movement. Additionally, as movement oil ages, required service intervals become more frequent.

Sinn's early analysis to this problem provided a quick solution (at least in theory) - if you don't use oil, it can't age. The process began by exchanging the ruby escapements for diamonds (the word "DIAPAL" derives from the German name for diamond escapements) in order to achieve the desired effect. The designation stuck, even though today Sinn works with solutions taken from advanced nanotechnology rather than diamonds.

The result is a movement that proves so reliable that Sinn offers an unprecedented five year warranty on their DIAPAL watches.

  • View Sinn watches featuring the DIAPAL oil free escapement.

Hydro Oil Filled Technology

Sinn has developed a technology termed "Hydro" in which the entire watch case is filled with oil. Watches using this technology are based on quartz rather than mechanical movements.

By using this type of movement, Sinn is able to fill the watch with oil, which has the joint affect of greatly enhancing the readability of the dial and time from any angle (including under water), and increasing the water resistance of the watch even at great depths.

  • View Sinn watches with Hydro Oil Filled technology.

Submarine Steel

Sinn has created a line of watches featuring cases made from German submarine steel (the U Series). The steel was procured by Sinn from a steel supplier to Emden GmbH, one of Germany's North Sea shipbuilding yards who construct submarines from the very same steel.

Because of the special steel used from the submarine steelmanufacturer, the case resists the effects of exposure to salt waterand salt water environments.

These cases are produced in-house by Sinn's case making affiliated company in Glashutte, Germany.

This special steel is also amagnetic which means that is does not have magnetic properties and cannot itself become magnetized. The watch movement itself is protected from magnetic fields up to 4,800 A/m.

  • View Sinn watches built from German submarine steel.

EZM Mission Timers

Sinn is a partner for manufacturing watches for the German Special Forces, including SWAT, Customs, FBI, helicopter police, GSG9 and other units.

Beginning with the now highly collectible (and valuable) Sinn EZM 1, Sinn has grown this collection to some of the most durable and highly functional watches made and they remain among the most popular in the collection.

Awesome watch

"Awesome watch"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: This is my first Sinn watch and I am very impressed with the quality and attention to detail. I can't find a single flaw in the manufacturing: the case is nicely done, the bezel clicks when it needs to and doesn't have a play, the leather strap is very comfortable.

I'm very pleased with this purchase and for sure this won't be my last Sinn.

Fourth Sinn

"Fourth Sinn"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Got this for my youngest brother as a gift for his upcoming marriage. Impeccable build quality on a beautiful watch.

The 104 is my favorite watch model. Truly a do it all watch. Dress it up or down.

Countdown bezel is so much more practical than a traditional count up. Almost kept it for myself.

Sinn 104 A St Sa on Strap

"Sinn 104 A St Sa on Strap"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Firstly it is imperative that I praise the staff at Watchbuys. I sent an email with questions, they responded promptly with answers. I called with more questions, someone picked up the phone and had all the answers. It was so nice to be able to speak to a pleasant, and knowledgeable human. As for the watch, well it is fantastic. None of the images online do it justice. The piece really comes to life when you see it in person. The polished surfaces, the bezel, the inner ring absolutely pop in the light. The black matte dial with white Arabic numbers balance the watch, allowing to be dressed up or down. I looked at this watch for weeks and weeks online talking myself in and back out of the purchase. Any of the tiny little details that I was concerned about disappeared the instant I saw the watch in person. If you are on the fence, BUY IT. You will not be disappointed. In conclusion this is an awesome watch, I thank you guys at Watchbuys for your professionalism, and thanks to the f... - more details

Verified Watch Owner Comments: The watch is simple, elegant, and timeless. First, because of the quality of the materials used to construct the watch. Second, because of the visibility and legibility of the numbers and letters etched into the watch. Third, because of the watch’s regal aesthetic. Fourth, because of the reputation of the company whose craftsmen crafted the watch.

Lastly, the customer service that the authorized dealer of the watch provides is superb.

Great service and amazing watch

Verified Watch Owner Comments: They verified my order, followed up on my questions and concerns about shipping and approval time. Watch came as promised and on time.

I love the Arabic’s as they harken my back to a time long pasted, but with a modern twist. What a clear read! The count down timer is great too. This piece is a keeper, and it’s a great everyday wear. Paul

Sinn 104 A St Sa Review

"Sinn 104 A St Sa Review"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Purchased the Sinn 104 St Sa on leather strap a few months ago. This was my first purchase from Watchbuys - great experience. I ordered online. Talked to a human shortly thereafter who was responsive and knowledgeable. I'll definitely do it again. In terms of the watch itself, I love it, and am trying to figure out what took me so long to pull the trigger. Matte dial is highly legible in all light conditions (for some slightly aging eyes). Lume good, not great, but lasts through the night for me. Bi-directional countdown bezel much more practical for me as someone that doesn't dive, but likes to time stuff on the grill. Out of the box, movement gaining about 18-20 seconds over the course of the week. Quite happy with that. I hack it about seven seconds slow Sunday night, and by next Sunday its about 10-12 seconds fast. Case size of 41mm nice balance function and form for me. Fits under shirt collars. Apropos of another commenter's thoughts, the strap was a little too big for my wim... - more details

Excellent value

"Excellent value"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I am new to buying higher end watches, but I am very picky when it comes to getting something that expensive. After reading a lot of reviews I ended up getting this particular model. I am very happy with the solid feel of the watch and the way it looks and feels on my wrist.

The guys at the watchbuys were very helpful and knowledgeable about watches they sell. Excellent customer service!

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I purchase this Watch from Watchbuy as a Christmas gift for my husband. He absolutely loves the style and all the functionality of this watch.

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Very happy with the purchase of this watch. From the fine dial finishing, easy to read layout, incredibly accurate time keeping (stays within -3s a day out the box), this is truly a piece that has it all.

Very happy with my purchase from watchbuys, they go above and beyond to make sure the customer is happy. Thanks again guys!

Great Service, Great Watch

"Great Service, Great Watch"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I purchased this Sinn 104 after wrestling with my decision for a month or so. I'm very happy I went with the Sinn 104, it is a very nice watch. After wearing the watch it has not lost any time and it feels rugged enough to wear it at all times regardless of the activity. .

The Sinn is a gorgeous watch. I choose the Arabic dial and I just glance at it to ck the time, very easy to read quickly. The service provided by WatchBuys was spot on. All my questions were answered and the deliver went went as planned. Great service from a very good company. I certainly would purchase another watch from them if and when the need arises.

Great Watch and Dealer

"Great Watch and Dealer"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I have been looking for a all around watch for quite some time now and the Sinn 104 fits all the criteria. It is an amazing timepiece which outstanding build quality . I have smaller wrists(6.5in) and was reluctant at first since its a 41mm(normally wear 38mm) but fits great.

The customer service from WatchBuys was over and above what I was expecting. Within a hour of purchasing I received a call from an employee verifying all information and answered all questions I had regarding the product. Ordered on a Friday and received that Monday! Would one hundred percent recommend this watch and also WatchBuys in the future!

Outstanding Timepiece

"Outstanding Timepiece"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: The 104 has been a longtime sweetheart of watch enthusiasts and for very good reason... it’s wonderful. It’s one of the few watches I’ve come across that can wear just about any strap you throw at it. Leather, bracelet, nato, rubber, it can do it all. Truly a versatile watch.

Great piece from a great brand and distributor.

Initial Thoughts

"Initial Thoughts"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Very happy with purchase and process. Sinn 104 is thing of beauty for those enamored with Germanic precision, functionality and design. A perfect timepiece for those in technical workplace looking for a watch exemplifying strict attention to detail. Watch is not over-sized for my average size wrist.

Very happy with choice of band (a hint of retro-hip styling). No issues mechanically. Was a pleasure to work with watchbuys I spoke with very knowledgeable, pleasant and efficient customer representatives twice.

"Sinn 104 A St Sa w/upgraded strap"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I'm a frequent window shopper on the site been eyeballing the Sinn 104 for a while now. I decided to pull the trigger and am glad I did. The watch wears well and exudes quality. The lume is very good. The upgraded strap gives it a more refined look. I have no complaints.

I've ordered from Watchbuys before and, as expected, the customer service was great on this purchase as well. Shipping was quick.

Verified Watch Owner Comments: This was my first purchase of a Sinn watch and my first experience with WatchBuys.

The experience could not have been better, from the personal phone call the first morning after I ordered to confirm, to the quick delivery, and of course an outstanding product.

I will use these folks again for my German watch purchases. Simply the best.

"Sinn 104"

Verified Watch Owner Comments:

I recently purchased this watch and I cannot be more pleased.

First of all with the watch itself, it is everything that I had hoped it would be, and has lived up to the very positive online reviews.

Second is my experience with the good folks at WatchBuys. Right after ordering, I received a phone call verifying my address and delivery. This is most likely standard for first time buyers, but great customer service none the less. I will be buying from these folks again!

The Perfect Tool Watch

"The Perfect Tool Watch"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I must’ve looked at all sorts of divers and Fliegers, but I kept coming back to the Sinn 104. This watch fills the bill, offering everything I want in a watch that will last me a lifetime and at a great price.

Dealing with WatchBuys was very nice. I spoke with a rep before making my purchase and then got a follow up call to make sure all my ducks were in a row. I can’t say enough positives about the whole watch buying experience through WatchBuys.

Fantastic Watch!

"Fantastic Watch!"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: The 104 had been on my list for a very very long time, so I was very excited to acquire one once I was able to. I can wholeheartedly say that I was not disappointed at all! The 104 A is absolutely fantastic and perfect in every way! The flieger style dial - hands, numerals, markings, countdown timer bezel - is just beautiful! It also facilitates very quick time telling with a fleeting glance. The contrast is superb which adds to legibility - the syringe hour and minute hands and long arrow seconds hand all hit the markers perfectly. The day-date snap at midnight will probably never get old. I love the see-through case back as well - its always fun to see the little workhorse heart trucking away. The dimensions are also wonderful, without being unnecessarily large and lumpy on the wrist. Only drawback is the size of the leather strap that it comes on. Even on the nearest hole, its still sized for a relatively large wrist, so I had to switch it out immediately for something more normal... - more details

Top Gun

"Top Gun"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: There is nothing I can see wrong with this watch, It's easier to read than my Explorer and it's beautiful. Onething to note. Crown will not move to the third stage to set the time 9pm and 3am. It seems to lock to protect the day date complication while the day turns over. At least what a watchmaker told me. This is not a defect but an added protection.

Sinn 104 A St Sa

"Sinn 104 A St Sa"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Classic design never goes out of fashion. Great craftsmanship is a thing to behold. This watch is very satisfying to look at and to ware. It looks like pride in design and construction. I take pride in wearing it.

More than just a working stiff

"More than just a working stiff"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Much have been written and said about Sinn's credential of being purveyor of sturdy and precise instrument watches. While the 104 is certainly sturdy and percies, one would be remiss to ignore the indulgence the 104 affords for opulence. While the matted dial under that anti-glare coated sapphire is certainly designed for usability, it also makes the polished steel bezel pop and shine under even the faintest light. On the back, the humble Sellita 220-1 is ably decorated for the sapphire case back. In all, the 104 wants to make sure the steadfast work to still be celebrated and glamorized. One thing that somewhat marred my experience with the 104 is the spring bar it came on. The springs are very hard indeed and feels somewhat rusty, combined with frankly excessively sharp tips caused quite a lot of scratches the first time I tried to change out the strap. My 104 became a much better watch after I switched out the stock spring bars to the complementary ones that came with the afterm... - more details

Out of this world clarity

"Out of this world clarity"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: First of all, Watchbuys service was great. As a first time buyer, I received a call from customer service confirming my order. Watch arrived quickly and was packaged perfectly.

The Sinn 104 is breathtaking. I wanted a great non-flashy everyday watch and got so much more! The first thing I noticed was the amazing high definition clarity of the crystal. The hands and markings are so razor sharp! LOVe the Sinn.

Fascinatingly understated watch!

"Fascinatingly understated watch!"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Less can be (and many times is) more! I wanted a watch that wasn't ostentatious. I wanted that watch to be capable of being worn in a variety of situations w/o being inappropriate. Versatile, in other words. Casually competent comes to mind!

I've found the Sinn 104a st sa easily fits in so well, in so many instances, it's merit is (perhaps) deceptive. It's the kind of watch that, for the $, represents a very good value too IMHO! Easy to make friends with, at the end of the day! All good!

The experience at WBs was pretty much the same as the watch, when all is said and done. Hard to go wrong here! I wouldn't hesitate to buy from these guys again!

No regrets

"No regrets"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I sold an Omega PO with the intention of getting something less blingy and the 104 A seemed to fit the bill. I can safely say that I have no regrets whatsoever.

The Sinn surpasses my every expectation and I really don't even miss my PO. The numerals make the dial impressively legible. While the lume is not quite as bright as my Helson Sharkdiver or Seiko Turtle, it gets the job done and remains legible all through the night, which was a pleasant surprise. I bought the 104 on leather with the intention of putting it on a NATO, where it looks like absolute perfection.

Thanks WatchBuys for the fast service! This will not be my only purchase.

Great time piece

"Great time piece"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: This is the first watch I got that is over a $1000 bracket. I thought I should get a Swiss watch, but after a thorough research, I realized Sinn 104 is even a better choice!

WatchBuys had a fast response to my purchase and the watch arrived within 2 days of purchase. I could get it for about $200 cheaper before paying import taxes on grey market, but for such an elegant watch, I thought it’s worth the extra pay, knowing WatchBuys is the authorized Sinn distributor in US.

Excellent Watch

"Excellent Watch"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Fantastic watch. I purchased the 104 A as a knockaround, EDC watch that I won’t have to worry about exposing to a bit of work. It fits the bill perfectly. It wears very comfortably, looks fantastic, is easy to read at a glance, has great lume, keeps excellent time and has twice the water resistance of my Rolex OP.

It just does everything well. The leather strap is beautiful and of excellent quality. I currently have this watch on a Marine Nationale strap, as I do a bit of splashing around in my daily life and wish to preserve the terrific leather strap for now. The bidirectional countdown bezel has already proven its usefulness - for cooking, which sadly is about as close as I will ever come to piloting an aircraft. I look forward to enjoying this watch for many years.

The purchasing experience from WatchBuys was outstanding, and I would not hesitate to buy from these fellers again. Communication, consideration and attention to detail were above and beyond expectations.

Beautiful watch and great service

"Beautiful watch and great service"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: You cannot beat the quality of this watch for its price point. Very easy to match with everyday clothes. I find myself looking for things to time with the countdown bezel all day.

The Arabic numbers make it very easy to read at a glance, the syringe hands make allow very very accurate readings, and the lume is also very bright.

Overall 5/5 watch for me.

Beautiful timepiece

"Beautiful timepiece"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: The Sinn 104 A St Sa is stunning in person. Pictures do not do it justice. Keeps excellent time (it has gained 8 seconds over a week and a half). Awesome customer service and lightning fast shipping.

My First Sinn

"My First Sinn"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Decided I wanted to get a nice automatic watch a few months back to compliment my current quartz watch so started researching what was out there in the $1k-$2k range and settled on the 104 A with leather strap. Have had it for a couple weeks now and love it!!

Many thanks to Kevin & Matt for answering my questions and helping me through the process of putting together the perfect watch that I was looking for.

Sinn 104 on Strap

"Sinn 104 on Strap"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I had been eyeballing this watch for a few months, and finally decided to make the purchase. Extremely happy with it. The polished steel case is slick — the online pics don’t really do it justice.

The watch feels well-built, and is now my everyday casual go-to option. The case size is just right for my 7” wrist, although I am on the tightest strap hole, so those with smaller wrists may need to purchase a shorter after-market strap. If I had to nitpick, I would say that the lume, while bright, does not last very long. Other than that, this is a perfect pilot-style casual watch.

WatchBuys transaction was very professional and fast. They had the watch in my hands within 24 hours (with expedited shipping). I would definitely order from them again.

Beautiful watch, great service.

The watch itself is everything I had hoped for: beautiful design, very high quality - can't say enough about it! I would highly recommend both Sinn and WatchBuys in the future!

First Mechanical Watch - From A Longtime Quartz User

"First Mechanical Watch - From A Longtime Quartz User"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: This is my first mechanical watch. I've stared at this thing for hours over the last 3-days and I cannot find a single physical flaw on it and the alignment is perfect everywhere. The movement is clean. With the almost needle point precision of the hands, I was worried about the sync of the minute-hand pointing while the seconds-hand was at 00, it's spot on. So is the hour-hand. Over the last 3-days I've recorded it at ~ +4-sec per 24-hours. This seems to be well within COSC standards (-4 to +6). As a prior quartz user, this will take some getting used to. (side note: I think it's kind of neat I have to consider this specific watches timing offset and account for it. This may sound like a bad thing, but there is an odd getting to know your watch quality to it.) The face is very matte black and very simplistic. It doesn't do anything but tell me the time, day, and date. If I had to complain about something it would be the size of the day/date display. As it sits at the :15 position of... - more details

Sinn 104A = Perfect

"Sinn 104A = Perfect"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: The Sinn 104A is an amazing watch.

I compared it to most of the other Sinns at a recent WatchBuys road show and it came out on top for me as the most versatile. The proportions of the watch are spot on (weight, thickness, and diameter), and it is an incredible combination of classy and rugged. I’ve worn it to a black-tie wedding in addition to wearing it with shorts and t-shirts.

It’s my everyday watch and I rarely take it off. I wear it mostly on a green or black NATO strap and it has a sophisticated field watch military aesthetic with the Arabic numerals. There is a very clean and crisp contrast the white hands and numerals and the deep black dial that is very visually appealing. It is extremely accurate – I am getting less than +2 seconds per day. The lume is also excellent.

I highly recommend picking one up. The road show and overall purchase experience were great too.

Better than expected

"Better than expected"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: If you can get Rob on the phone he will answer all your questions and make sure your are comfortable with the entire process. Thanks Rob for your dedication. I prefer the Arabic numerals. Also I purchased the deployment buckle but personally the watch and strap wear better on the tang buckle.

What can I say guys the watch far exceeded my expectations. I wear it to work and then with shorts to watch a game with buddies. I appreciate the craftsmanship and the price was very reasonable. Would love a sinn 104 a st sa on the new limited edition blue dial. It has kept time since the day it arrived. Been wearing the watch for a month and am very happy. Would buy another sinn.

Thanks again Rob in customer service.
