Introducing the Sinn EZM 1.1 Limited Edition

Post by CGSshorty » Thu Aug 31, 2017 9:01 am

This new watch celebrates two significant events in Sinn's history - the first is the 20th year of producing Mission Timer (EZM) watches, and the second is the company's move to new production facilities in Frankfurt Am Main on September 1, 2017.

• Case diameter (mm): 43
• Case thickness (mm): 16.5
• Case lug width (mm): 22
• Weight - head only (grams): 105
• Case back: Solid
• Case finish: Matte
• Case metal: Tegimented hardened steel
• Dial color: Black
• Front crystal: Sapphire
• Tegimented: Fully
• Inert gas: Filled
• Sinn calibre: SZ-01
• Copper sulphate: Capsule
• Movement: Automatic mechanical
• Manufacturer's limited warranty: 3 years

Sinn SZ-01 calibre
Centrally mounted elapsed chronograph hand
Jump minutes function with chronograph operation
Case made in-house of Tegimented steel by Sinn's case manufacture in Glashutte, Germany
Case is matte and bead blasted to cut reflections
Dehumidifying technology enhances functional reliability and freedom from fogging
Captive pilot's bezel with minute ratcheting
Sapphire crystal glass
Water resistant to 200 meters
Low pressure resistant
Screw down crown
Sinn's D3 integrates the crown and pushers into the case removing the tube insert
Limited edition of 500 pieces

The new Sinn EZM 1.1 Limited Edition differs from the original model in the following ways:

Fully Tegimented hardened bead blasted matte stainless steel case replaces titanium
Chronograph hand precisely jumps to the next elapsed minute marker rather than continuously moving
Case diameter is 43 mm rather than 40 mm
Dial is marked SZ-01 at 9 rather than 3H
New D3 crown and pusher system for protection against dust, debris and moisture
Sinn Calibre SZ-01 has replaced the discontinued Lemania 5100
SuperLuminova is now used in place of tritium
Limited to 500 pieces:

Sinn has incorporated a black, vintage style cowhide strap, black silicone rubber strap with Tegimented buckle, strap replacement and changing tool and additional spring bars.

Your watch will arrive in a special Sinn box with the two straps. You may optionally add a fully Tegimented Sinn H-link stainless steel bracelet made for this watch to ship with your new watch for an additional payment of $410.

You would let WatchBuys know of your decision to add the bracelet once your watch arrives and you make your final payment for both the watch and the optional bracelet.


This is a limited edition watch which will first become available in September 2017. WatchBuys is now accepting reservations for this new watch.

Because of the extensive amount of work required to create the Calibre SZ-01, Sinn will produce only a small number of these watches each month and deliver them to WatchBuys as they are completed. They will fulfill orders in the order in which your reservation is received.

Not for me at 43mm, but I'm sure it's going to be wildly popular.

I really am tempted to order. If they made 100 instead of 500, I'd already have ordered.

Link is up and working. Even called WB.

Deposit made.

To me all improvements over the original. I always thought it was too light for me and slightly too small. Well all fixed.

this will be a very hot watch. Grab it if you can now.

And 16.5mm thick. That's thicker than the Big Pilot.

I saw that and didn't mention it. It's not exactly DSSD thick, but it's going to be a big hunk of metal.

I almost bought another U1000. It's just a little more for this new watch over a used U1000....

$4900 is big cash for a Sinn, but it's great looking.

That's awesome. If it weren't upsized to 43mm (not that that's gigantic, but it's bigger than I wear these days) I'd be very, very tempted. Well, that and the $4800 price tag. But for those jumping on it looks like it'll be a great grab. I like that Sinn has made a movement that functions like the old Lemania. :thumbsup:

43x16 I think will be better proportions than the original EZM 1 which I always felt was a little hamburgerish.

In fact, isn't the original EZM 1 also 16mm thick?

I actually agree. 43 & titanium maybe, but it's the price that keeps me away.

The price has kept me away, too.

I think it was 15.5mm but it has a domed crystal and sloping bezel so that mid case wasn't too crazy.

I don't get the economics . 500 pieces which they will surely sell. But what if this was not a limited edition and it was $3500 they couldn't make these fast enough and it would become a flagship iconic piece that would never not sell . It would be like the Toyota Camry or Ford F150 of the Sinn lineup....
