The Sinn 104 – The Classic Pilot Watch

Sinn 104

The Sinn 104 is a classic pilot watch in the Sinn tradition. Clearly structured, with its three hands providing optimum readability of the time, date and day of the week down to the second.

A quick guide to the Sinn 104; available in a number of different colours and variations, available with metal bracelets or leather straps! This model arrives with a clearly structured dial, and three hands providing optimum readability of the time, date, and day of the week! Featuring a Pilot’s bezel sitting around the edge of the dial, with minute ratcheting, which can be rotated on both sides, and has been secured to the case of the watch. The Sinn 104 has a luminous triangle at the 12 o’clock position as a key mark, and the piece has been low pressure tested, and is resistant up to pressures of 20 bar. This pilot’s instrument watch has a stainless steel case, finished with a polished look, along with sapphire crystal glass, front and back, allowing for a glimpse in to the mechanical movement of the watch.

Currently, there are 5 different base model designs available from the Sinn 104 collection, with multiple variations of each. I have linked to an example from each model below.

As you can tell, there is not much difference from model to model, which is actually what makes the Sinn brand so special. Rather than having 1 model available in multiple colours, they have provided slight variations of the same model, to ensure that you are getting everything that you want from the watch, so you can pick from different hour marker styles, and different dial colours, and then, you can also select which leather strap or metal bracelet you would like to have on the watch too! This adds a great depths and choice to the process of purchasing a Sinn watch, which is not available to this level from many other luxury watch retailers!

Another Sinn watch that you need to see, is the Sinn 903 Navigation Chronograph, which is a chronograph model that uses the slide rule, logarithmic bezel, of which the rights were purchased for, from Breitling back in the quartz crisis in the late 70’s. read more about this fantastic watch here!
