"Everyday Wear Watch for a Working-Class Gentleman"
Verified Owner Comments: Context: Reviewer is male in mid-30’s, works in professional office environment in Northern Virginia and wears formal or business casual clothes for work. Generally, wears utility clothing at home (jeans, cargo pants, plain t shirts, flannel). Build is 6’6”/ 250lb - tall and lean king.
Look: The watch looks very elegant and masculine thanks to its bold size combined with the lug-free design, matte texture, and sleek, smoothed edges. Super versatile, subtle stainless bead blasted finish on the case/bracelet combined with the black dial goes with almost any ensemble. Black dial contrasted with the white hands and markers really pops with the red chronograph hand.
Tachymeter and pulse meter markers make the watch look like a tool without making it seem too busy. 41mm case perfect for man with substantial but lean body type. While the case is thick, due to its outside appearance you cannot tell by looking at it. Love having a sapphire back to reveal the movement, which was clearly machined using high quality tooling.
Movement: Accurate enough, the watch appears to lose about one second per day and power reserve lasts at least 48 hours when fully wound and left to run. Comfort: Watch weighs in at 157 g/ 5.5 oz, feels substantial but unless you’re a delicate flower you forget you’re wearing it. The bracelet is smooth and does not have any uncomfortable sharp edges or pinch points.
Durability: Does not appear to be tegimented, only downside of this watch. Clasp already showing minor wear from rubbing against table surface, but bead-blasted finish makes it less apparent. Utility: Love having a day/date function to glance at, and the luminous hands and dial are very visible even in moderate low light. The Chronometer is very useful for timing the espresso machine – much handier than having to cycle through different functions on a digital watch. Enjoy the ability to wind the watch manually to supplement the automatic movement.
Final Thoughts: This is an everyday wear watch for a working-class gentleman with good taste and a moderate amount of success. It looks good with any kind of outfit, and it’s nice to get regular use out of it given the price tag. However, I would recommend taking it off for any physical activity or manual labor. It looks too nice to let it get beaten up.
"My new daily driver!"
Verified Owner Comments: I recently acquired the Sinn 144 St Sa from WatchBuys, and it has surpassed all expectations. The watch's design strikes a perfect balance classic and contemporary aesthetics, reminiscent of the Porsche Design Orfina, and it looks even better in person.
The distinctive shaped case wears exceptionally well, along with the easy to read chrono and great water resistance, makes it a perfect everyday watch. Its quickly becoming my daily driver.
WatchBuys provided excellent customer service, ensuring a smooth buying experience, and the timely delivery made the entire process even more satisfying. The Sinn 144 St Sa is an awesome timepiece that combines elegance, durability, and precision, making it a valuable addition to any watch collection.
"144 st sa"
Verified Owner Comments: My first watch arrived with a defect unfortunately. I contacted watchbuys and had an immediate response with a paid return label and then a replacement sent upon delivery. No hassle, no questions asked. Top tier service, as expected.
The watch itself is excellent. Indices are crisp and legible, lume is good, Chrono pushers are positive and firm. The Chrono hands are more orange than red to my eye, which is what I had hoped for. Accuracy is so far holding at +1.9/day. We'll see how it settles as it wears in. Buy with absolute confidence.
Verified Owner Comments: Excellent experience with WatchBuys, as always.
The 144 is a modern classic with a workhorse movement and very cool vintage styling. The angled tachy scale and orange hands give the dial a ton of character and depth that doesn’t always come across in photos.
Quality and accuracy is outstanding.
"Solid Watch, Great Legibility"
Verified Owner Comments: I've had this for almost two weeks now, and it's rarely left my wrist. The construction and finish are impeccable. This watch is extremely legible, with excellent contrast the main hands and markers and the deep black matte dial.
I particularly like the color of the chronograph hands - they seem brighter in person than they appear in the stock photos. A nice pop of color on a serious watch. Timekeeping has also been great, gaining about five seconds a day, and I expect that will improve as everything settles in.
Overall, it's a great watch at a really good price point. And a bonus is the excellent customer support from Watch Buys, with friendly service when ordered and timely shipping confirmation. Can't ask for more!
Verified Owner Comments: Awesome watch
Verified Owner Comments: As always, easy ordering process and quick shipping from WacthBuys.
The 144 is really great- the dial is well structured and the pop of red from the chrono hands is stunning! The watch wears tall but comfortable. Also love the display case back- can't stop seeing how the chrono mechanism works. Overall very happy with the purchase.
"Excellence All Around"
Verified Owner Comments: My experience with WatchBuys was positive throughout, from initial consultation and advice to addressing and solving a fit issue to my complete satisfaction. The watch itself is handsome, a pleasure to wear, and a great timekeeper.
Verified Owner Comments: The Sinn144 is a fantastic watch.
The case shape, matte finish, and matching bracelet gives it a very unique look and feel. It wears small for a 41mm (in my opinion) so don’t be intimidated by a number if you prefer smaller watches. The see through case back and nice movement finishing is a nice contrast to the the very utilitarian/tool watch exterior.
Excellent pre-purchase communication and fast delivery made this another positive watch purchasing experience from Watchbuys!
"Purchase with WatchBuys"
Verified Owner Comments: I can’t say enough about the company and their products. I recently purchased a Sinn 104 and 144. They exceeded beyond my expectations. When I called in the owner answered.
We spoke for 30 minutes about how we both got started into watches. It’s been my pleasure doing business with WatchBuys. I’ll be lifelong customer.
Verified Owner Comments: This is an excellent watch. I was worried about how the watch would wear, but the curved case back and short lug to lug hides its size very well. It is extremely legible with the color differentiation for the chronograph registers and the tapered bracelet is very comfortable.
The movement is decorated very nicely and is a nice touch with the all business dial. Easily my favorite chronograph, and will buy from Watchbuys again (2nd purchase).
