So, when I was going through Sinn’s catalog for yesterday’s post, I had something completely different catch my eye that I wanted to bring up. I figure there’s no better time for that than a lazy Sunday, right?
These hearken back to 1961 when Helmut Sinn created his first ones for the dashboard of a plane. So, I suppose you could throw these into your Piper Cub, or perhaps onto the dash of your kit car racer (easily removed via the bayonet joints, so you can take them in the house with you).
For me, however, I’d love to have this sitting on my desk at work, or mounted on the wall by my desk at home. Either way, they’re stationary. So, that makes things like a titanium case and baseplate, Ar-Dehumidifying Technology, 100 meter water resistance, and a sapphire crystal a bit of overkill.
And sure, hand-winding your desk clock may not be something you’d expect to want to do. But hey, you already do it for at least one watch, I’m guessing. And besides, that argument is a moot point. These suckers fall into the “if you have to ask” category of pricing. So, while they’re a stunning bit of horology, they won’t be on my desk any time soon.
That said, if you were to add some sort of different / unique desk clock to your workspace, what would it be? Would be it from a make like Sinn? Something more esoteric like a tank clock? Let me know in the comments what you think about this topic.
Oh, and if you want to read more about Sinn’s take on the situation, you can read the full pdf here.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
