Sinn Spezialuhren stands for highly functional mechanical watches. Our pilot watches, diving watches, chronographs and Mission Timer (Einsatzzeitmesser / EZM) are designed to impress not only pilots, divers, and the German federal police special force GSG 9 (Grenzschutzgruppe 9). SINN watches continuously prove their toughness, durability, high quality and precision in both everyday and extreme situations. These characteristics are due in no small part to the incorporation of our special technologies including DIAPAL, Ar-Dehumidifying Technology, HYDRO and TEGIMENT. When Sinn Spezialuhren develops a new watch, its form is always dictated by the required function.

The treasures of the North Sea are its stories

Andreas Peters

Wreck diver Andreas Peters counts on the U1000

“North Sea expeditions are a hobby of mine. I love wreck diving and I’m a keen treasure hunter.” These are the words of a man who has been diving for sunken ships in the North Sea since 1998. Andreas Peters was born in 1973, and raised in the town of Meldorf in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. As a professional technical diver, he is driven by an extraordinary passion.

Although actually a navigator with ship master’s certificate, he doesn’t mind being referred to as an ‘adventurer’. After all, wreck diving is very different to conventional scuba diving. “Being a technical diver, I work with extremes. I never know what to expect down there, so I have to be fully prepared. There’s no doubt that since my very first dives, I’ve been letting myself in for a new adventure every time. At first it was the fascination of hunting for lost gold and silver. Since then, however, the treasures that attract me down into the dark depths have assumed a very human aspect.”

DIN 8330 – The New Official Standard for Pilot Watches

In response to an initiative by Sinn Spezialuhren, the Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN) has decided in mid-2013 to create a new standard for pilot watches. A working group on pilot watches was created in which well-known companies and institutions are actively participating.

The new DIN standard is based on the Technical Standard for Pilot Watches (TESTAF) which was developed in a joint project of the FH Aachen – University of Applied Sciences and Sinn Spezialuhren. The TESTAF aims to give back the term “pilot watch” its original meaning as a wristwatch with particular functional and technical features. Similar to the well-known diving watch standard DIN 8306, the new DIN standard 8330 “Pilot Watches” will facilitate the creation of functionally superior, safe and reliable pilot watches.
