Sinn Space Chronograph 140 A Watch Review
Friday - 11 January 2013
The 140 A is a redesign of the Sinn Space Chronograph 140 that made watchmaking and space flight history: German physicist and astronaut Reinhard Furrer wore a 140 S during the D-1 Spacelab mission in 1985, demonstrating that automatic watches can function in a weightless environment.
The new Sinn Space Chronograph 140 A is powered by Sinn SZ01 chronograph movement, and was initially limited to 200 pieces. The limitation has now been extended, with the watch expected to become available in June 2013.
The 140 A has silver electroplated counter dials and a satinised stainless steel case with polished sides. The 44 mm case is surface-hardened with TEGIMENT Technology, making it particularly scratch-resistant. The watch has a centre-mounted jump 60-minute stop hand for improved readability, and Ar-Dehumidifying Technology for enhanced functional reliability and to prevent fogging. Additional features include an interior pilot's bezel, sapphire crystal glass, and a nickel-free case back. It is low pressure resistant and water resistant to 100 metres.
Available to pre-order now with a black leather strap or steel bracelet.
