60th Anniversary - Sinn's Jubilaeum

The Sinn 144 is one of Sinn's most instantly recognizable models.  Its endurance through the years is a reflection on its popularity and historical significance to the brand.

In 2014, Sinn celebrated 40 years of the Sinn 144 series by releasing the Sinn 144 St Black Jubilaeum.  That limited edition watch featured fan-favorite Sinn technologies like Tegimented steel, a black PVD case, and dehumidification - features not present in the standard Sinn 144.

That series quickly sold out and we still receive requests today for that model.

The Sinn Jubilaeum II celebrates Sinn's 60th year producing German watches - the company was founded in 1961 in a small Frankfurt neighborhood.

And to mark their 60th anniversary, Sinn has styled the 60 marker at 12 prominently in red.

The Sinn 144 St Black Jubilaeum II features the same Sinn technologies as its predecessor, but with a fresh panda dial design and bright red accents. 

This watch is a limited edition of 600 pieces worldwide, and the series number is engraved on the case back along with a "1961-2021" engraving to commemorate Sinn's 60th anniversary.  The "60" on the pulsometer scale is bright red.

Finally, Sinn has added special packaging for this watch including a silicone rubber strap, Tegimented black bracelet, strap changing tool and additional spring bars.

Tegimented Steel With Black PVD Finish

The Sinn 144 St Black Jubilaeum II features an all Tegimented case construction.  

Normally, watch cases with applied PVD are subject to increased risk of cracking because of the difference in hardness between the base metal and the PVD (eggshell effect). 

At Sinn, technology again has been used to not only solve a problem but to enhance a watch.

The Tegimenting process also acts as an extra protection for the black PVD coating by providing a harder surface for this material. It is interesting to note that Sinn's black PVD watches are hardened to higher standards than most of their non-black Tegimented watches.

Dehumidifying Technology

Mechanical watches require oils to ensure proper operation, and the proper care of any mechanical watch movement mandates that these oils maintain both their viscosity and lubrication properties.

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.  

This inert gas mixture, signified by the Ar symbol on the dial, is used to fill the watch case prior to being sealed.  This will prevent air from entering the watch case, which will promote a dry and stable environment, but also prevents the dial and crystal from fogging.

The second aspect of this technology is a dehumidifying copper sulfate capsule that absorbs unavoidable diffused atmospheric moisture within the watch, thus slowing down the aging process of the movement inside. A second advantage is that any condensation that were to develop does not appear underneath the crystal, even in very humid weather conditions. 

Important features of this watch include:

  • Tegimented steel case with black PVD hard coating
  • Sapphire crystal and transparent case back
  • Elaborate movement decoration and finish
  • Ar-Dehumidifying technology
  • German day and date display at 3
  • Low pressure resistant
  • Water resistant to 200 meters
  • Limited edition of 600 pieces
This watch ships on a fully Tegimented black PVD Sinn bracelet with black Tegimented locking clasp.  Also included in the box is a black silicone strap with a Tegimented black PVD compact buckle and tools.

Sinn Packaging

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 FedEx 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).

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.

DIN 8330 / TESTAF Certified Pilot's Watches

Lothar 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) and DIN 8330 were originally developed by the Aachen University of Applied Sciences and establishes the suitability for professional use as a pilot's watch.

Great tough chronograph

"Great tough chronograph"

Verified Owner Comments: First and foremost, great customer service experience. Watch arrived 2 days after ordering, excellent communication throughout. I had been looking for a pilot style chronograph for quite some time, but could not find anything I really liked. However, when I saw the Sinn 144 Black edition, I immediately purchased it. I have really enjoyed the watch in my short time with it. I really like the look on the watch. It is different than most other chronographs, but not in a overly showy way. It is a tough watch and can be worn essentially doing anything. I have found it to be very accurate (+2-3 seconds a day). The watch wears well on my 6.5 inch wrist. It has a size/weight to it, btu can fit under most shirt cuffs. I measured the height @ 14.2 mm not 14.5 mm. Reviews online also found that it is skinnier than mentioned on the product sheet, The only potential negative in the bracelet is not designed for wrists smaller than 6.5 inches. I had to remove all the links and use the microadjust... - more details

Love my first Sinn

"Love my first Sinn"

Verified Owner Comments: Easy transaction. Shipped on time. Happy with my purchase. My first Sinn watch. Overall I really like this watch a lot. I own a Damasko watch as well and feel like the germans do their watches like their cars and over engineer them. I wanted a chronograph that was tough and waterproof that I didn't have to worry about taking off along with being tegimented and black and this watch seemed to check all the boxes. So far I really like the look/layout of this watch and the overall feel. It seems to wear a tad smaller than the 41mm probably because of the black color. Still unsure of the Concepto movement as I don't have any experience with them. So far keeping good time just a few seconds fast every day but still a little early to see what it will settle into. The chronograph pushers seem a little on the stiff side for what I am used to compared to my Speedmaster. But it is a different chronograph movement so not a fair comparison. The chrono seconds hand is nice orange/red tint and high... - more details

German precision

"German precision"

Verified Owner Comments: Transparent transaction on behalf of watchbuys was appreciated. Will purchase additional watches in future.

As for this 144 black jubilaeum 11. Extremely well built. Reminds me of a 2003 BMW M5 I owned in past. Bulletproof. Have not sized my strap yet. Bracelet is comfortable though should have a closure that is up to par with all this watches attributes. Silky feeling on as it is a demure on the wrist.

Panda design works well on this model. Muted and flys under the radar as far as styling . Loving it so far.
