DEAR CUSTOMER,
We know from numerous
conversations that the people
who buy our watches do so out of
conviction. This includes people with
a pronounced affinity to technology
who are fascinated, for example,
by the solutions we have devised
for protection from magnetic fields
and scratch resistance. Some of our
customers, such as divers, pilots and
the German GSG 9 special police
unit, rely on their watches in their
respective careers because their lives
depend on it.
4
They all swear by the performance,
resilience and durability, as well
as the quality and precision of our
watches. That is why the world’s
largest classification society DNV GL
(formerly Germanischer Lloyd,
Hamburg) regularly tests and certifies
the water and pressure resistance of
our diving watches.
Selected pilot watches are tested and certified by independent institutions
according to the DIN 8330 Horology – Aviator watches in an extensive and
complex type and unit verification process. This ensures that a DIN 8330-compliant
pilot watch is a suitable all-round replacement for the on-board timekeeping
instruments available to pilots. Functionality is our top priority and ultimately
determines the design. Only the technical features that are really needed can
be found on our watches. Because we believe that products have to speak for
themselves.
The basic question that we ask ourselves is: which innovative technologies and
materials can be employed for our craft and provide solutions for rendering
our watches even more practical for everyday use? It is often worth indulging
in a little lateral thinking to see what is going on in other industrial sectors
or fields of science. We repeatedly go to the limits of physical resources to
upgrade our watches – with the aim of making what’s good even better. Most
of our best developments are yet to come!
I am delighted that you have decided to buy a SINN timepiece and hope that
it will continue to give you pleasure for many years to come.

Yours sincerely,
Lothar Schmidt

SINN SPEZIALUHREN ZU FRANKFURT AM MAIN
It was back in 1961 that pilot and blind-flying instructor Helmut Sinn founded
the company. Since then, we have been committed to producing highspecification mechanical watches. In 1994, the graduate engineer Lothar
Schmidt took over the company. This marked the beginning of a new era
for the SINN brand, because the new owner took a decisive step towards
more innovation. Under his leadership, new technologies and materials were
introduced, thus providing the crucial incentives for our company’s evolution
and gradual emergence as an insider’s tip for lovers of fine watches. Today,
our name stands for technical innovations – much to the delight of both the
trade and our customers alike.
Technical innovations
Take, for example, the absolutely condensation-free, anti-reflective, German
Submarine Steel diving watch – made possible by HYDRO Technology. Other
examples include a chronometer chronograph fashioned from a 22-carat
gold alloy that is as hard as stainless steel and a chronometer with a magnetic
resistance of up to 80,000 A/m. There are also watches with a clockwork
mechanism optimally protected from aging by an inert gas and integrated
dehumidifying capsule. The list would not be complete without mentioning
the development of mission timers (Einsatzzeitmesser or EZM in German) for
firefighters, for special police units and border patrol guards. DIAPAL is one of
our most important technological developments, with oiling no longer needed
for the most important functions in the watch thanks to the materials we select.
This technology was first used in 2001. With the aid of TEGIMENT Technology, we
achieve greatly increased scratch resistance through surface hardening.
7
Ongoing advancement in technology and quality
Our top priority has always been to develop watches that offer superior
performance – both in daily and in professional use. Which is why our
engineers are working continually to identify which innovative methods,
materials and technologies are best suited for optimising our watches. Each
new development has to first undergo rigorous practical tests before being
incorporated. And no watch leaves our workshops before it has been subjected
to thorough checking and fine adjustment by our master watchmakers.
8
Innovations in endurance testing
The world’s largest classification
society for maritime safety DNV GL
(formerly Germanischer Lloyd,
Hamburg), has been testing our
diving watches for pressure and
water resistance since 2005. As part
of DNV GL’s official certification
process, our diving watches have
been treated as part of diving
equipment since 2006 and tested
and certified in accordance
with European diving equipment
standards. This is unparalleled in
the watch industry. Selected pilot
watches are tested and certified by
independent institutions according
to the DIN 8330 Horology – Aviator
watches in an extensive and
complex type and unit verification process. This ensures that a DIN 8330compliant pilot watch is not only a suitable all-round replacement for the
on-board timekeeping instruments available to pilots, but is also capable of
remaining unaffected by the physical stresses of flight, posing no risk potential
for the crew or aircraft, and demonstrating compatibility with other on-board
instruments.
The Temperature Resistance Technology keeps mechanical watches
performing at temperatures ranging from − 45 °C to +80 °C. This technology
has proven its worth in the EZM 10 TESTAF, for example, used as part of the
official approvals procedure for Airbus Helicopters (formerly Eurocopter)
EC 145 T2 high-performance helicopter. The 303 CRYSTAL is impressive
proof of the functional reliability of our watches under the toughest
climatic conditions. Equipped with Temperature Resistance Technology,
the chronograph passed the acid test at the Yukon Quest, the world’s most
demanding dogsled race. The 203 ARCTIC passed its Arctic endurance test
on the wrist of extreme diver Mario M. Weidner, withstanding all dives in the
freezing cold waters of the Arctic Ocean above 81 degrees latitude. Both
watches were worn on top of protective clothing. The real test was in the
extreme temperature fluctuations between water and land – a test that the
303 CRYSTAL and the 203 ARCTIC passed with flying colours.

assessment has been specially designed for certification of the pressure resistance of our
diving watches by DNV GL (formerly Germanischer Lloyd, Hamburg), the world’s largest
classification society for maritime safety.
Workshop modifications
From the robust case and the polished crystal to the exquisitely decorated
movement, we make sure that each and every detail in our watches is fit
for purpose. In addition to our technology, the heart of any SINN watch is
the fascinating mechanical movement. That is why we rely only on selected
renowned manufacturers.
“SZ movements” is the name given to our movement modifications. The result
is high-quality calibres characterised by impressive technical features. An
example of this is the SZ04 with regulateur for the 6100 REGULATEUR series. Or
the SZ02 calibre for the U1000 diving chronograph. The 60-second scale of the
stopwatch minute counter is much simpler and more intuitive to read than the
30-second scale commonly found in other watches.
A special feature is the high-quality hand-wound calibre UWD 33.1 made by
Uhren-Werke-Dresden. This is equipped with a spring barrel supported on one
side, also referred as flying spring barrel. In accordance with the functional
principle of a swan-neck regulator, the regulator system enables zero-play
precision adjustment and beat setting of the watch. Another sophisticated
technical feature are the six eccentric weights on the balance wheel for
precisely balancing the balance system.

MODEL SERIES 900
Our pilots’ watches have long set standards for function and
technology. Thus it is only logical that the model series 900
seamlessly continues this tradition. At the same time, the
chronograph has a contemporary look.
The dark dial and the case diameter of 44 mm guarantee
perfect readability even at night, thanks to the luminous
hand-mounted appliqués. The satinized stainless steel case
which is specially tempered using the TEGIMENT Technology
demonstrates the watch’s suitability for everyday use as well as
the protection from magnetic fields up to 80,000 A/m and
the sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating.
The hardening through the TEGIMENT Technology
creates the foundation of the sophisticated
Black Hard Coating of the 900 PILOT S. The
Ar-Dehumidifying Technology enhances
functional reliability and freedom from fogging.
The 900 DIAPAL boasts in addition with the
DIAPAL -Technology, the lubricant-free anchor
escapement.
The 900 PILOT won the coveted 2010
“Goldene Unruh” award.

The colour scale for the Ar-Dehumidifying Technology: the capsule continues

Perfect freedom from fogging
All the watches in this series meet the technical requirements for
waterproofness, as set out in standard DIN 8310. But even with watertight
instruments, the air enclosed in the case contains water in a gaseous state.
And air can also penetrate the seals. When the water vapour in the case
condenses into liquid, the instruments are impossible to read. To prevent this
from happening, we have developed the Ar-Dehumidifying Technology.
The combination of a special drying capsule, EDR seals (extreme diffusion
reduction) and a filling of protective gas guarantee that the crystal remains
free from fogging, even in difficult conditions.
Longer service intervals
The sophisticated Ar-Dehumidifying Technology considerably slows the aging
process of the watch’s inner workings and keeps the movement functioning
properly for longer. That is why we issue a three-year warranty on all our
watches featuring Ar-Dehumidifying Technology. When the drying capsule
is saturated, as indicated by a deep blue colour (refer to picture on the left
side), we recommend you have it exchanged so you can continue to enjoy
all the advantages of the Ar-Dehumidifying Technology (enhanced reliability,
longer intervals between maintenance).

Winding the watch (crown position 1)
The crown is screwable (crown position 0). To loosen the crown, turn it counterclockwise (crown position 1). The movement is wound by turning the crown
clockwise. About 40 winds of the crown are generally enough to ensure reliable
functionality. Under normal circumstances, simply wearing the watch every day
should suffice to keep the self-winding mechanism wound. The power reserve
allows you to take off your watch overnight without having to re-wind it.
Time adjustment (crown position 3)
In crown position 3, the motion is paused. This helps you to set the watch
precisely. Please make sure the date changes at midnight and not at
midday. Just move the hands forward until the date changes. Afterwards you
attempt to set the time. We recommend moving the hands past the desired
minute marker and then adjusting it backwards. The movement restarts as
soon as the crown is no longer in position 3.
Quickset date adjustment (crown position 2)
Do not use this function between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. Set the crown in position 2
and turn it clockwise until the correct date appears in the date display
window. Please do not use the date-setting function between 9 p.m. and
3 a.m. Between these times, the gear wheels used for changing the date are
engaged, and the movement could be damaged.
Adjusting the second time zone (crown position 2)
Pull the crown into position 2 and turn it counter-clockwise until the correct
time appears. The UTC hand stops at hourly intervals. This setting may be
adjusted between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m., but it is important to ensure that you
are really setting the second time zone in this period by turning the crown
counter-clockwise! Otherwise the watch could be damaged!
Please take care to fasten the crown after making adjustments.

Using the chronograph to measure time
The chronograph is operated by means of buttons A and B. The measurement
starts when button A is pressed once. Pressing this button again stops the
measurement. The measurement is resumed by pressing button A once more.
This allows you to add up and record the cumulative time. Button B resets the
hands of the chronograph to zero.

Using the pilot’s bezel to measure time
The pilot’s bezel can be moved manually in both directions and is adjusted
with the crown in the 10 o’clock position. The triangle glows in the dark. It can
be used in a number of ways, including to measure important lengths of time.
For example, you can set the marking to the beginning of the time span to be
measured, or you can use it to indicate the end of a given span of time.

ASSEMBLING AND ADJUSTING OF STRAPS
If you are not sure how to assemble, shorten or lengthen the watch straps,
please contact your specialist SINN retailer directly or one of our watchmakers
in customer service in Frankfurt am Main. We would also be happy to help
you over the telephone.
Assembling the textile strap
1. Place your watch on a soft cloth with the dial facing down.
2. Fold over the shorter side of the textile strap with the two metal loops
pointing to the left. Then bring the longer side of the textile strap through the
spring bars on the left and right, as illustrated in figure 1 (steps A to C).

3. F old over the shorter side of the textile strap to the right over the case back
and bring the longer side through the two metal loops. Tighten the textile
strap carefully (figure 2).

Fig. 2
Adjusting the length of the solid bracelet
Determine the relative lengths of the two sides before adjusting the length of
the bracelet. To ensure maximum comfort, both sides of the bracelet should
contain the same number of links. If this is not possible, the top bracelet strap
(above the 12 on the clock) should be longer.
It is not necessary to detach the solid bracelet from the watch or the clasp.
1. L oosen the screws on the side of the bracelet link which is to be removed
or added.
2. Remove the superfluous bracelet link or insert a new one.
3. Before screwing tight, add a small drop (no more!) of thread-locker
(AN 302-42 medium-tight) to the thread of the bracelet screw.
21
Adjusting the length of the silicone strap
1. Release the silicone band from the clasp. To do so, use the pointed end of
the band replacement tool to push the spring bar out of the fastener. The
other side of the spring bar can be removed while the fastener is open,
enabling you to remove the silicone band.
2. U
sing a knife or scissors, cut the silicone band in the middle between two
metal pins. You should shorten the band symmetrically and little by little,
starting from the clasp, until you have reached the desired length. Test the
length from time to time before proceeding. Shortening both ends by the
length of one metal pin results in a total difference of 10 mm in the length
of the strap; shortening one end reduces the length by 5 mm.
22
3. R
emove the first metal pin and replace it with the spring bar. Then
reattach the clasp to the band.
Assembling the butterfly folding clasp as follows
We recommend first inserting the bar at the red marker, as per the illustration.
If the silicone strap is too tight, use the option shown in the illustration by the
white marker.

ADVICE
Water resistance
In its original condition, your watch fulfils the technical requirements of water
resistance according to DIN 8310. The static compressive stress of your watch is
given in bar. Each and every one of our watches is tested for water resistance.
However, in everyday use it is important to note that seals can suffer from wear
and ageing over time due to a wide range of factors which arise when wearing
a wristwatch. We therefore recommend having the water resistance checked at
least once a year. To ensure your watch retains its water resistance for as long as
possible, rinse it with tap water if it comes into contact with seawater, chemicals
or the like. Continual mechanical stress in the form of shocks and vibrations
can also not only reduce water resistance, but also increase wear and tear
of the movement. Care should therefore be taken to protect your watch from
unnecessary impacts.
Accuracy
The measured results of the watch’s rate are always “snapshots” taken under
laboratory conditions. For this reason, we also take each owner’s individual
movements into account when making a specific regulator correction. It is
therefore only possible to judge the accuracy of your watch after it has been in
operation for approximately eight weeks. In the event of a deviation, please keep
a daily record of its timekeeping over an extended period, for example one week.
Do you have any questions? Our employees will be pleased to advise you.
