Editor’s note: Like you, we are also excited for the Time To Watches novelties. Before we get to dive deep into them, here’s our preview & Gut Reaction Review (Grr…) of the new Sinn U50 S BS. For our detailed hands-on reviews, please head to our dedicated reviews section here. This is not a sponsored post.
The New Sinn U50 S BS Arrests Your Senses
The new Sinn U50 S BS is essentially the last year’s U50 S Mother-of-pearl S but with an exciting new blue and black gradient dial that not only is legible to a degree of crime but also so darned sexy that it should be locked up.
Keeping in-trend with the latest onslaught of gradient dials, with very wearable dimensions for a range of wrist sizes courtesy only 47.8mm lug-to-lug spacing, and with an impressive 500m water-resistance, the new Sinn U50 S BS is a dive watch par excellence that will win hearts (and trust) both under and above the water.
Fortunately we have gone hands-on with the Sinn U50 S Mother-of-pearl S and can appreciate this release better.
The 5W1H Of The New Sinn U50 S BS
The new Sinn U50 S BS ref. 1050.0202 features a 500m water-resistant 41mm diameter and 11.15 mm thick German Submarine Steel case with Black Hard Coating on a TEGIMENT Technology basis with a screwable crown at 4’o clock and with a lug-to-lug spacing of 47.8mm and a welcome interhorn spacing of 20mm.
Retailing for 4’225 AUD, the limited to 500-pieces model is announced today on 29 March 2022 as part of the Time To Watches event.
Inside the new Sinn U50 S BS ticks the calibre SW300-1 which is an automatic-winding movement and is anti-magnetic as per DIN 8309. It features 25 jewels, beats at the frequency of 4Hz (28,000 vph) and provides with a 42-hour power reserve.
Nothing BS About The New Sinn U50 S BS
Don’t let the nomenclature abbreviation of BS — for those including my mother who might be reading this and don’t know, BS in casual-talk stands for Bull-Sh&% — fool you, there is nothing BS about the new Sinn U50 S BS.
A through and through purpose built tool watch, it’s also boasts of very wearable dimensions and features all the elements that make Sinn watches so distinguishable and alluring:
- a diver’s bezel with minute ratcheting and luminous key mark
- final product tested based on European diving equipment standards EN 250 / EN14143
- watch certified by DNV
- a screw-down crown and case-back
- a high-strength and seawater-resistant steel case
- indices along with hour, minute and second’s hand all coated with luminescent colour
- and just all round great looks
It’s for those who would like a highly legible and rather distinct looking diving timepiece that is over-engineered to provide satisfaction to any of your horological needs.
