My First Sinn

"My First Sinn"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I spent a couple weeks traveling with a diver with no complications. As I lost track of what day of the week it was as well as the date I began to fantasize about a watch that kept track of both for me. I watched review after review and fell in love with the 104 with numbers.

I couldn't believe I could get my hands on such a legible watch with the same 200 meter water resistance as my diver, with a display back, and all for roughly half what I paid for what I was wearing. I was not disappointed in any way. I love the legibility, I love the dial, and I have used the bi-directional bezel far more than I ever did on the diver style. I bought the bracelet version because isn't that what you're supposed to do?

I promptly used my Watchbuy points to pick up a Sinn leather strap and it is such a classy look. But wait, now the leather will be destroyed at the gym. Maybe I need something like a UX to compliment this one...

Clean, Simple, and Functional

"Clean, Simple, and Functional"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Simple design but does not skimp out on functionality. The numerals, the syringe style hands the count down bezel are clear and have great visibility day or night. The bracelet is decent and has the nice feature of the diver extension if you would ever need it. the day and date complication great and is instantaneous. Cons Not many but the clasp is friction fit and is some times difficult to take off but does break in eventually and isn't as bad. The power reserve isn't the greatest and can be an inconvenience went it dies and you have to reset the day and date. Overall I would definitely recommend this watch because you can dress it up or down and is a great everyday watch.

What a watch

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Loving my new 104. Bracelet fits perfectly (h-link) and the dial is incredibly legible.

Sinn 104 - Awesome Watch

"Sinn 104 - Awesome Watch"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I've worn my Sinn 104 with H Link Bracelet for several weeks now it's an absolutely perfect watch. Easy to read numerals, surprisingly useful timing bezel (why are these so rare? they are super practical for cooking), excellent lume and not too flashy.

I wanted a tool watch and this is perfect. The one flaw in this setup is not the watch but actually the bracelet clasp: Sinn, if you are reading this, please for the sake of everyone's fingernails make an H-link bracelet clasp with a two button release. The bracelet itself is excellent but the clasp is super annoying to open. If I was buying again, the fine-link bracelet might be worth the extra cost if the clasp is better.

Very happy with the 104 A St Sa

"Very happy with the 104 A St Sa"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: After having considered the 103 St Sa for some time but being concerned it would be too thick at 17mm, I decided to go with this 104 A St Sa for the same aesthetic except without the chronograph functionality at a much more manageable 11.5mm thick. It is shirt-cuff friendly and much less likely to get bumped.

The 41mm diameter is a good, understated size for my 7.5 wrist. Fit and finish is excellent, and the bezel rotates smoothly with very positive 1s detents. Used for timing, the count-down pilots bezel can be an adjustment if you're used to a count-up divers bezel. The highly polished case dresses it up for office or dressy-casual wear, but may be a bit much for casual weekend duty depending on your tastes - the matte may be better suited for that.

Accuracy has been good, after wearing daily for a few weeks it has settled into a steady +3s per day, within COSC Chronometer standards. Overall, very happy with my purchase.

Lastly - the purchasing experience from WatchBuys was excellent with free second day shipping, and would purchase from them again without reservation.

Amazing watch and great customer service

"Amazing watch and great customer service"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: Watch exceeded all of my high expectations. I read a lot of articles and reviews about Sinn prior to my purchase and the hype is warranted. Love the dial design and bidirectional bezel. The 41 mm diameter fits nicely on my 7 wrist.

Prior to my purchase, Watchbuys answered all of my questions with quick replies. Customer service was excellent and I will definitely buy again from Watchbuys.

Easy to read, very accurate

"Easy to read, very accurate"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I love it. Fits perfectly my 6 3/4” wrist. 3-5 secs/day!

Great Watch for Everyday Wear

"Great Watch for Everyday Wear"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: At 41mm case diameter with a 48mm lug-to-lug, this fits well on my small 6.25 wrist even with the standard H-Link bracelet. Very little slip when adjusting the minute hand so you can precisely place the tip on the chapter ring markers.

Out of the box, Timegrapher indicates +2 sec / day with dial up, but in use, deviation is 0 to -1 sec / day. Legible arabic numbers on black glossy dial with both day and date displays make this a great daily wear watch.

A wonderful watch

"A wonderful watch"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: This is my everyday watch. I wear it 24/7. The h link bracelet is very comfortable and was easy to adjust. I own many automatic watches (Omega, Seiko, Hamilton) and this is my most accurate.

It averages an incredible 0 seconds a day to -1 second a day. I would recommend this watch.

Very Versatile Watch

"Very Versatile Watch"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: The 104 is one of the best all around watches I've ever owned from any brand. I don't say that as a Sinn fanboy, either, as this is the first Sinn I've had. I chose the Arabic dial because to me it gives the watch a blend of pilot, field, and dive characteristics.

The watch is extremely legible and the lume lasts long enough to be readable at 5 in the morning. The countdown or mission timer bezel is very handy for daily tasks. Speaking of the bezel, mine is spot on in terms of alignment and the action is wonderful. The 104 dresses up nicely or can be very casual depending on the strap of choice. It's thin enough to easily slide under shirt cuffs if that's a consideration and wears nicely with the down turned lugs.

Even though it isn't marketed as a dive watch, the screw down crown and 200m of water resistance are certainly great features to have. If I was looking for a one watch collection, this would be a very strong contender. The only thing I wish Sinn would do is add drilled lugs, especially since the 104 is polished.

This was my first purchase from WatchBuys and I would not hesitate to do business with them again or recommend them. They were professional and prompt and the watch was delivered when promised. Prior to my purchase, I had heard many good things about WatchBuys from other customers. Great watch and great service!

Incredible quality and overall fit. Movement is beautiful.

"Incredible quality and overall fit. Movement is beautiful."

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I was a little concerned with the overall sizing of this watch but it actually fits incredibly and comfortably. The dial finishing is superb along with the look of the movement through the back. A watch that will always be in my collection.

A worthy stunner

"A worthy stunner"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I've been interested in the Sinn line of watches for a long time. I finally ponied up enough funds to get the Sinn 104 Arabic and I am extremely satisfied. I was torn the arabics or the white but settled with the more tool design of the arabics.

A very reliable watch with a tank like design that looks good in business suit or Jean and a t shirt. Something that's not really pointed out in every review is that the watch has very very good temperature ratings as in cold/ hot weather won't affect the accuracy. Since it has a lug width of 20mm, there is a litany of different strap choices that can pair very well with the watch. The pictures don't really do the watch justice, if you can see and wear on in person I highly recommend it. This watch is definitely something to keep.

After having it for a while I now understand why the watch has such a tight hold on its value/ price.

Best dressy tool watch for the $$$.

"Best dressy tool watch for the $$$."

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I love the display back. Quality exceeds the price. If you’re on the fence by all means pull the trigger!

Sinn 104 A St SA, H-Link Bracelet

"Sinn 104 A St SA, H-Link Bracelet"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: After looking at many watches, I came across the Sinn 104 and finally had the opportunity to purchase one from Watchbuys. The watch lives up to all of the reviews you may have seen - terrific finish, solid construction, great dimensions, and a terrific value for the price. I highly recommend the watch, you won't be disappointed.

Watchbuys I can also highly recommend, the whole process of ordering and delivery was topnotch. The owner actually took the time to discuss the Sinn brand and watches in general while I was placing my order. When I'm in the market again and Watchbuys carries the brand I'm interested in, I'll certainly make the purchase from them.

Sinn 104 the best pilot watch

"Sinn 104 the best pilot watch"

Verified Watch Owner Comments: I bought my 104 a few weeks ago and I love this watch. Watchbuys were very professional and great to work with, I kept having issues with my bank declining my purchase (4 times!)

I was immediately called by Watchbuys trying to help get the transaction completed. Saving up for the 903 now!
