Helmut Sinn

Helmut Sinn 1916 - 2018

We have received the news that Helmut Sinn has died at the age of 101. The former pilot and blind-flying instructor founded our company under the name 'Helmut Sinn Spezialuhren' in 1961 and helped shape it over many years.

It is with the utmost respect that we remember Helmut Sinn's extraordinary and strong-willed personality, his creativity and dynamism, his energy and his sense of humour.

The highest tribute must be paid to his achievements as an entrepreneur and as the founder of Helmut Sinn Spezialuhren, the company that laid the foundations for the one we know today.

We will always have very fond memories of Helmut Sinn.

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.
