German watchmaker Sinn Spezialuhren is celebrating the opening of a new company headquarters today that includes a showroom for current collections and an exhibition of historic models from the archive.
The company has also created an anniversary model of its first mission timer, which was first worn by the German Central Customs Support Group ZUZ 20 years ago.
The 2017 edition EZM 1.1, limited to 500 units, houses an SZ01 chronograph movement based on a Valjoux 7750 and modified in house by Sinn.
The watch has a centre-mounted jump 60-minute stop hand designed for quickly and easily recording intervals during a mission.
In addition to a chronograph function, a pilot’s bezel can be rotated on both sides and used to record cumulative time, while the captive countdown rotating bezel features minute ratcheting.
Sinn is represented by Page & Cooper in the UK.
