Show You The Sinn 358 Chronograph Replica Watches

Almost under the radar comes this new Sinn 358 replica watch. Did I intend to make that initial statement because this is a pilot replica watch? No but it works. I love timepieces like this that are all tool and do not look like they are made to be worn by tools. German Sinn replica watches continue to make me happy for mostly dismissing the pressures of the high-end replica watch world to upmarket all decent replica watches out there. Not that Sinn High Quality Replica Watches are cheap, but rather that they mostly feel fairly priced.


The 358 collection is a good sign because it shows sinn mens replica watch increasing the sizes of a few of their core collection replica watches. In essence, the 358 is a larger version of the outgoing 356. At 42mm wide, the 358 offers a more modern and Western-appealing version of the 356's 38.5mm wide case. The case is done in bead-blasted steel and comes with an acrylic domed crystal. Why acrylic? Sinn claims it is better for shock-resistance, but they also thankfully offer a sapphire crystal as an option (standard on some models). Actually to be perfectly accurate each of the three 358 models have different "standard" parts. Though it seems as though most of those parts and features can be optioned around. Basically you can get the model 358 of your choice through Sinn easily enough via a special order.

Another option is an air dehumidifying system that Sinn uses in many of its replica watches to remove potential moisture that can build up in the dial and cause condensation or fogginess. This can be a problem during quick rises or descents in a plane or just when rapidly changing climates (think of walking outside into hot humid air from an air-conditioned building). You can learn more about this technology here, and Sinn replica watches with it will have a little "Ar" logo on the dial. By the way, Sinn Ar replica watches only come with sapphire crystals.


Water resistant to 100 meters, the 358 is also highly antimagentic (with the solid caseback), and low pressure resistant. These are serious tool replica watches for serious use. The basic 358 model is called the 358 Pilot, which then goes up to the 358 Sa Pilot (Sa stands for "sapphire"), topping out with my favorite model, the 358 DIAPAL. I went into some detail a few years ago on what DIAPAL is here. You can read about it direct from Sinn here. DIAPAL is basically a oil-free (no lubrication) escapement that Sinn developed some years ago. Others have followed suit. This increases the lifespan of the replica watch and ensure more trouble-free usage. Sinn gives each of their DIAPAL replica watches metallic charcoal gray dials so you can them apart easily. I love the idea of these system in replica watches as such as this. The 358 Diapal is the top-of-the-line model in this collection and when combined with a metal bracelet is sure to be a hell of a replica watch. Don't forget it also has a GMT hand that is easy to miss.

Speaking of bracelet, these replica watches are available with a range of straps and a single metal bracelet option at this time. The dial is classic, legible, and stately. It is probably the epitome of German replica watch incarnate. Little details come out with close inspection such as how the chronograph subdials are all different and optimized for easy reading. People today will feel it is a bit retro, but that is totally in. I have a feeling they will find it fashionable as well, something which is good, but also nothing Sinn seems to be concerned with.

Limited Edition Watch Series:Sinn Model 1800 S Damaszener 100-Piece Replica

We have grown to like - well, love - Sinn for their consistently high quality, very technical replica watches like the EZM 10 (reviewed here) or the T1 and T2 Dive replica watches. With the Sinn Model 1800 S Damaszener Replica, the brand further strengthens its dressier line of replica watches, while also adding a twist to it all with the use of damascus steel for the case, case back, and dial.

Damascus steel (or Damaszener Stahl in German), is a material seldom encountered in wrist High Quality Replica Watches – and yet, not unsurprisingly, Sinn still couldn't resist adding a twist to it nevertheless. For the Sinn Model 1800 S Damaszener, both the central, largest part of the case as well as the dial have been cut from the same complete block of steel, rather than from separate pieces. This was done to allow the unique light-dark-light pattern of damascus steel to seamlessly flow throughout the case and the dial. The dial also features thirteen applied indices which, along with the long, lumed hour and minute hands, should provide ample legibility despite the complex and unique backdrop.



Damascus steel has traditionally been used in the making of swords, knives, and blades and is a forge-welded combination of at least two different types of steel, one softer and one harder – to create a new material that, theoretically, combines the favorable properties of both. The manufacturing process is rather complicated, as one would imagine, but what is actually relevant when it comes to the material's use in wristreplica watches is the fact that the steels are dissolved to varying extents by acid to form the typical light and dark nuances.

The problem this creates is related to corrosion, and the material has to be treated so that it is resistant to the elements – presumably the "patina" of damascus steel is not as desirable as that of bronze. Sinn Mens Replica uses a so-called Tegiment Technology along with additional "Black Hard Coating," to provide protection against corrosion and also to better highlight the patterns of the steel.

The case itself is 43 millimeters wide, boasts 100-meter water resistance, and even the caseback – where the individual 100 piece limited edition number is visible – is in damascus steel as well. Behind it is the ETA 2892-A2 automatic caliber – that reliable workhorse movement running at 4 Hertz for around two days, and that hardly needs any introduction at this point.
