Sword's hands are coated with Super-LumiNova complemented by a tapered sweeping second hand. At 12 o’clock we have the Sinn motif, “FRANKFURT AM MAIN” a nod to the city Sinn was founded and at 6 o’clock “Automatic” completes this contemporary designed timepiece. On the reverse, a screw-down sapphire exhibition case back with the details of the watch engraved around its edge, inside an automatic ETA Cal. 2824, 25 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour, the movement has hand winding and hacking for your convenience. The watch comes paired with its Sinn 20mm H-link satin brushed stainless steel bracelet and signed folding clasp and flip-lock, all links are provided plus a brown calf leather strap and signed pin buckle.

Personal Note

There is no denying how great the Sinn 556 is, especially for the price... Now add a beautiful tropical brown matte dial to the mix and you have something even more incredible! That is exactly what this early 2010s Japan Limited Edition of 150, reference 556BR, is. I would not hesitate to add this to your collection if you are interested as this is the first time I have ever seen this model and I highly doubt I'll see another one.


The Brand

In 1961 the pilot and flight instructor Helmet Sinn founded the Sinn watch company in Frankfurt am Main. They were principally making watches that gave the user maximum functionality at a reasonable price. His Pilot watches became popular with his fellow pilots as they appreciated their build quality and precision. In 1985, Professor Dr Reinhard Furrer, a German physicist, could be seen wearing the 140 S model on his wrist during the D-1 space lab mission. They continued their exploration of space with the 142 S in 1992. This watch was worn by Dietrich Flade during the Mir-92 mission. Later in 1993, the 142 space chronograph went on the second German Spacelab mission, the D-2. The mission was in space for 10 days, orbiting the Earth 160 times whilst onboard the NASA Space Shuttle, Colombia. SINN was bought by Lothar Schmidt an engineer in 1994 renaming the company ‘Sinn Spezialuhren GmbH’. Over the years Schmidt used his engineering background to develop Ar-dehumidifying technology which is resistant to temperature. In 2011 they celebrated their 50th anniversary.
