Man, I’m really liking this new Sinn chrono.
The 757 is 43mm and considered a Pilot´s watch. The bezel can be turned clockwise and anti-clockwise which is not typical for divers watches due to safety regulations. Case and bezel are tegimented. The bracelet for the 757 will be tegimented, too. The watch is water resistant up to 20 bar (200 meters) and the price of this watch is approx 1270 Euro. (Thanks to U Turn).

I’m going to guess we won’t be able to make this one, but FYI:
Dear watch-collectors and watch enthusiasts,
on September 3rd the former pilot, rallye driver and well known watchmaker from Frankfurt, Helmut Sinn, or as his friends do call him, the “fast Helmut”, celebrates his 90th birthday!
For this reason Helmut Sinn invites you for a small snack and a drink on
Saturday, the 2nd of September 2006, from 10:00 to approx. 16:00
in his office rooms of JUBILAR UHREN in Schultheissenweg 40, 60489 Frankfurt am Main. The office is in the district of Rödelheim, close to the old water tower.
Watch lovers will have the opportunity to see the entire Jubilar-, Guinand- and Chronosport-collections, or have a interesting chat with the watch master craftman Helmut Dietz, for all others there will be plenty of time to talk to Helmut Sinn himself.
So, come along, Helmut Sinn, or better: the “fast Helmut” is looking forward to seeing you!
P.S.: for our planning it would be very helpful if you could please answer to this invitation unti the 14th of August 2006. Please send us an e-mail under “firstname.lastname@example.org” or give us a call under 49 69 78 00 99. Thank you.
Meet by the old water tower!

When Velociphile says something is better than the Breitling Navitimer, I’d tend to believe him. This hot little manual wind from Sinn has a great movement is is considerably cheaper than anything Breitling has to offer. Plus, it’s busy without looking cluttered.
The Sinn 903 is a better Navitimer for those in the know. Despite now being based only on the ubiquitous 7750, it beats the Breitling hands down as it stays true to the tool watch ethic at a sensible price. In comparison the Breitling Navitimer is an overpriced lifestyle product and, frankly, jumped the shark a while back.
