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.
We have selected pilot’s watches tested and certified to the technical
standard for pilot watches (Technischer Standard Fliegeruhren – TESTAF) by
Aachen University of Applied Sciences. The TESTAF ensures that a pilot’s watch
meets all timekeeping requirements during flight operations in accordance
with visual and/or instrumental flight regulations and is suitable for professional
use. 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.

Advancements in endurance testing
Take, for example, the absolutely condensationfree, 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 as well as Temperature Resistance
Technology to keep mechanical watches
performing at temperatures ranging from − 45 °C
to + 80 °C. This technology has proven its worth in
the EZM 10 TESTAF model, for example, used as
part of the official approvals procedure for Airbus
Helicopters (formerly Eurocopter) EC 145 T2 highperformance helicopter. Hot and cold climate tests
and high-altitude experiments were carried out in
the deserts of the USA, the Rocky Mountains and
the frozen wastes of Canada. The watch was worn
unprotected, outside the pilot’s overall, during cold
climate tests at temperatures reaching − 45 °C.

Innovations and certifications
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.
We have had selected pilot’s watches tested and certified to the technical
standard for pilot watches (Technischer Standard Fliegeruhren – TESTAF)
by Aachen University of Applied Sciences since 2012. The TESTAF, the result
of a research project at the initiative of Sinn Spezialuhren, ensures that a
pilot’s watch meets all timekeeping requirements during flight operations in
accordance with visual and/or instrumental flight regulations and is suitable
for professional use.
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.
8
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.
Workshop modifications and hand-engraving
From the robust case and the polished crystal
through to elaborate refinements: we make sure
that each and every detail of our watches is fit
for purpose. The same applies to our workshop
modifications. Only the perfect interaction of all
components and technologies ensures that our
watches can meet all their design specifications
in full. Take for example the SZ02 calibre of our
U1000 diving chronograph. The 60-minute scale
of the stopwatch minute counter is much simpler
and more intuitive to read than the 30-minute
scale commonly found on other watches. The
hand-engraving represents a highly personal form
of refinement. If required, our specially trained
engraver can etch a name, initials, monograms
or symbols onto the rotor, movement bridge and
case back.

Model Series 103
It's obvious at a glance what the 103 model series was created for:
uncompromising functionality. They are designed to resemble cockpit
instruments, in keeping with our company tradition. After all, the first watches
we produced were mechanical aviation clocks for professional use. The
patented technologies we have developed over the years are now also part
of these classic SINN watches.
The patented technologies developed over the course of time under the
leadership of owner Lothar Schmidt have since also been made manifest
in the technical features of selected models from this traditional series.
For example, DIAPAL Technology for a lubricant-free escapement and
Ar-Dehumidifying Technology for enhanced freedom from fogging, each of
which is indicated respectively in the name of the model ("DIAPAL" or "Ar").
Thus you will find traditional models in the 103 series that are also equipped
with additional special features, such as the 103 Ti DIAPAL and 103 St DIAPAL
with DIAPAL Technology and Ar-Dehumidifying Technology.

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.

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).

Usin g the c hron ograph to measure time
Models: 103 St DIAPAL, 103 St Sa Ar, 103 St Sa
The chronograph is operated by means of buttons A and B. The push pieces
are screwable. To loosen the push pieces, turn them counter-clockwise
(Figure 1). 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 (Figure 2).
Please take care to fasten the push pieces after using the chronograph.

Assembling and adjusting the length 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).
21
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. Loosen the screws on the side of the bracelet link which is to be removed
or added.
22
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.
23
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. Using 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.
24
3. Remove 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.

Tight-fitting strap
Hole for spring bar:
Extend strap
If you want to shorten the overall length of the silicone strap, refer to steps 1 to 3
in chapter “Adjusting the length of the silicone strap”.

Service
General advice
To preserve the water resistance for as long as possible, the watch should
be rinsed whenever it has been in contact with seawater, chemicals, etc.
If your watch is frequently worn in water or underwater, we recommend
having its water resistance checked at yearly intervals.
The watch is designed to withstand high levels of mechanical wear and
tear and is shock resistant as per DIN 8308. Nevertheless, it goes without
saying that continual mechanical stress in the form of impacts or vibration
will affect its durability.
Care should therefore be taken to protect your watch from unnecessary
wear and tear. It is only possible to judge how well the watch keeps time
after it has been in operation for approximately eight weeks, since it takes
that long for the working mechanism to become adjusted, especially in
view of the fact that everybody has different lifestyles and habits. In the
event of any excessive deviation, please keep a day-to-day record of its
timekeeping over a period of about one week, for example.
32
Does your Sinn watch need an inspection, repair, retrofitting or reconditioning?
If possible, please use our service order form. For information about our
service order form, please refer to the section entitled “Customer Service”
on our website www.sinn.de/en and to the section entitled “Servicing and
repairs” in our general terms and conditions at www.sinn.de/en. We would be
happy to send you a copy of the general terms and conditions.
Our international partners generally offer on-site service. However, should they
be unable to provide a certain service, they will organise the safe dispatch
and return of the Sinn watch to our manufactory in Germany. Please be aware
that our partners will wait until they have a sufficient number of Sinn watches
before they post a shipment, in order to keep transport costs and customs
duties to a minimum. This will increase the processing time.
Alternatively, you can send your Sinn watch to us directly. You will be required
to cover the postage costs for the delivery and return shipment, which vary
depending on the country. For insurance reasons, we strongly recommend
sending us any return goods by registered parcel post. We regret that we are
unable to accept deliveries with unpaid postage!
In case you have a chance to drop off your watch directly at our office in
Frankfurt am Main we look forward to your visit. Please make a note of our
opening times.
Do you have any questions?
Our employees will be pleased to
advise you.
