  1. “They don’t say if they test to ISO standards (which means they probably do not)”

    According to Sinn, they meet the DIN 8306 and DIN 8310 requirements. DIN 8306 are the exact same requirements as ISO 6245. You don’t think the most overbuilt watch company in the world doesn’t meet (or surpass) ISO 6245 standards?

    1. It is not a knock on them. The vast majority of dive watches I see would not pass ISO standards because of the design features, regardless of how overbuilt they are. The Sinn does have the visual requirements to meet ISO, which I state. Sinn is also European based company and I do state (and link to Sinn’s page on this issue) that the watches are tested to meet DNV GL. I have read the ISO standards, I have not read any of the European standards.

      I have no doubt that these watches are more than capable of meeting all recreational dive needs and the vast majority of technical and commercial diving needs. Some people care about the ISO standards, some don’t (I don’t care about ISO certification on the watches I personally wear for diving, though I would like them to meet the general standards).

      But to get to your questions, no, I do not think that this watch would fail to meet or beat the ISO requirements. I think that the testing is probably equivalent to the ISO testing, and may very well be superior in some ways. I would have no worries wearing this as a dive watch. But equivalent is not equal, and the watch does not carry the ISO certification. If you care about that type of thing.
