Beyond Tool Watches

Now, I know that Sinn makes WONDERFUL "professional" watches.  Pilots, divers, rescue personnel... Sinn has gone above and beyond to offer the timing tools needed for these brave men and women.  But there are some of us engaged in another daily battle, the rat race that pits us against uncompromising schedules, relentless meetings, and the desire to be home in time to spend some of that irreplaceable time with our family.

Rest assured, while Sinn makes plenty of professional watches, they also make watches for professionals ; )

This is the 1736 St I 4N.   And what I really like about this new Sinn?  It marks a return to understanding about reasonable sizes.  The case measures a sane, rational, PROFESSIONAL 36 mm in diameter.  The dial is clean, clear and unfettered with nonsense.  Hours and minutes.  It is singularly beautiful in its simplicity.
