Product Details

With the diving watch U1, Sinn engineers succeeded in developing a diving watch in which the quality of material and design gives it superior resistance to external influences under extreme conditions of use.

In their search for a steel with the desired resistance, the Sinn engineers found what they were looking for at the German submarine manufacturer ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems: the steel manufacturers supply small quantities of the original steel of the current German submarine production exclusively to Sinn for making diving watches — the very steel of which the external hulls of the German Navy's new submarine class 212, which currently represents the most advanced non-nuclear submarines in the world, are made. This original submarine steel is not only extraordinarily seawater-resistant but is also of the highest non-magnetic quality without any residual magnetism.

This preowned watch is in great condition. A few signs of wear. The watch movement is in great working order and the sapphire crystal is also looking very good.

One small consideration is that this watch has some small engraving on the case back 'Fur Dave, 2011' .. So if you're name is 'Dave' then this is THE watch for you!

(We can order a new caseback if required).

A great robust dive watch. So, beat the cue and buy this terrific Sinn watch (new RRP is $4345 so it's quite a steal for this price of only $2350).

The watch also comes with a, box, extra black silicone strap and a special book.
