A Look at the Sinn 103 Ti Ar Watch
Monday - 25 April 2022
The new Sinn 103 Ti Ar watch is a classic pilot’s chronograph integrated with the brand’s innovative fog-free Ar‑Dehumidifying technology
Founded by ex-pilot, Helmut Sinn in 1961, it’s no wonder Frankfurt-based watch manufacturer Sinn is most recognised for its expertly developed pilot’s chronographs. First and foremost, Sinn watches are equipped to serve. These innovative and incredibly robust tool watches have been designed for armed forces, pioneering pilots, professional divers and rescue service workers to name just a few. With a strong focus on German engineering, the brand first specialised in creating navigational clocks, which went on to feed its love for pilot’s chronographs. In an industry where finding the right balance between a dependable chronograph and a reliable pilot’s tool is crucial, Sinn has never had to worry about that. The manufacturer has released many iterations belonging to the 103 chronograph range, namely the 103 St – the traditional pilot’s watch made for superior functionality and performance, as well as the 103 St DlAPAL. The latter is made from Sinn’s DIAPAL technology and aims to keep the escapement of the movement free from lubricant whilst also enhancing the accuracy of the movement. Now it is time to meet the new Sinn 103 Ti Ar watch, integrated with Sinn’s Ar‑Dehumidifying technology.
The new Sinn 103 Ti Ar watch
Serving as a functional and reliable tool on the wrist, the new Sinn 103 Ti Ar chronograph watch measures a 41mm diameter and sits at a height of 17mm on the wrist. Crafted from bead-blasted titanium, this material promises a case that is three times stronger than traditional stainless steel and three times lighter in weight. The front of the case is sealed with an anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass, which protects the surface of the dial from damage caused by denting, moisture, heat, light and scratching. The back of the case is also fitted with this same material, granting a clear view of the peerlessly performing movement that sits within the case. The caseback is also screw-fastened and the crown positioned at 3 o’clock is screwable.
Two push-pieces positioned at 2 and 4 o’clock grant effortless control over the chronograph features of the new Sinn 103 Ti Ar watch. The case is integrated with Sinn’s leading Ar‑Dehumidifying technology, which enhances functional reliability and freedom from fogging at times when the watch is faced with adversely high or low temperatures. A captive black bezel surrounding the dial features 60-minute markers and is designed in a way that makes it virtually impossible to detach from the case.
Upon the matte black dial of this Sinn 103 Ti Ar watch, three chronograph counters can be found at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock. The 12 o’clock position shows the 30-minute timer, whilst the 6 o’clock area features the 12-hour totaliser. The 9 o’clock location is where the small second sub-dial can be found. The cathedral-shaped hands and Arabic numeral hour markers on the dial are treated with luminous material, whilst the central chronograph second hand is identified by its arrow-shaped tip. The reference to Sinn’s Ar technology can be found in red a 4 o’clock and a day-date feature resides at 3 o’clock.
Inside the robust 200-meter water-resistant titanium case of this Sinn 103 Ti Ar watch is a Concepto movement – the self-winding Calibre C99001, which performs at a rate of 28,800 semi-oscillations per hour. It is also certified by DIN for its antimagnetic properties and bears a total of 25 jewels. The watch is completed on a matching titanium bracelet with a folding clasp but can be purchased on a rubber, leather or canvas strap alternatively.
