Introducing New Colorways in the Sinn 104 and U1 Collections

Sinn, one of our favorite utilitarian German brands, unveiled multiple new timepieces in updates to the 104 and U1 lines this morning. Both the 104, Sinn’s beefy pilots’ watch with a bidirectional bezel, and the U1, the brand’s divers’ watch made from German submarine steel, have reached cult status over the years for their good looks, reliability, and value. What we have today is two new dial colors for the 104 St Sa with the distinguishers 1 A and 1 B, and a new dial color for the U1, with the name U1 B.

The U1 B(lue) has a galvanized blue dial that helps it stand out compared to the brand’s previous versions. In fact, this might be the most “casual” iteration of the U1 yet, if you can call a watch made from German submarine steel casual, that is. Seriously though, the dark blue dial colorway is a great addition to the U1 lineup and it comes with a matching blue silicone strap or a stainless steel bracelet. Everything else that you appreciate about the U1 is still here including 1,000-m water resistance, enhanced seawater resistance thanks to the German submarine steel case, the crown’s placement at 4 o’clock, the scratch-resistant bezel with TEGIMENT technology, and exceedingly high legibility. Price: 1,820 euros (USD pricing not available at press time)

The 104 St Sa I A has a galvanized dial in an anthracite colorway and the 104 St Sa I B features a galvanized blue dial option. Both dials have a new sunburst application that is a first for the 104 lineup, which previously leaned more towards monochromatic tints. It’s a good look for those who want their high-performance pilots’ watches to have some additional flair. Just like with the U1 B, everything you like about the 104 collection has stayed the same including the focus on legibility, bidirectional 60-click bezel, 200-m water resistance, and sapphire crystal on the dial and caseback side. Both models come with your choice of either an Alcantara leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet. Price: 1,150 euros for the leather option; 1,320 euros for the stainless steel bracelet (USD pricing not available at press time)

Sinn 1800 Damascus Steel Limited Edition of 100 pieces.

Sinn also announced a new limited edition model of 100 pieces in its 1800 series featuring a Damascus steel dial. Price: 7,800 euros (USD pricing not available at press time)
