The Sinn Classic B Regulateur 6100 is a regulator watch in the image of grand 18th century clocks used by watchmakers to keep time precisely and set time accordingly. The Sinn Regulateur reference 6100 is encased in 44mm of stainless steel surrounding a silver guilloche dial on a blue alligator leather strap. Remarkably for a dress watch, the Sinn 6100 includes 100-meter water resistance.. Functions include hours, minutes, and seconds. The watch also measures 10.8mm in thickness and 50mm from lug-to-lug.

The minute as the central indicator of time. This hallmark of the present had its origin in the 18th century. Louis Berthoud, son of the
famed watchmaker Ferdinand Berthoud, developed the Regulateur dial. His idea was that the minute hand should be dominant,
while the hour and second hands rotate in separate areas of the dial. This was a ground-breaking invention which also
accommodated a general development: people were increasingly measuring the most minute units of time. They increasingly
demanded time measurement that was both accurate and identical everywhere. The new dial appeared in precision pendulum
clocks, known as the regulators. They synchronized processes and measurements in transportation, trade and communications, and
functioned as timers for the following centuries. Until the late 1960s, precision pendulum clocks were the standard used for official
determination of the time - until they were replaced by atomic clocks.

Mechanical watches still fascinate us today. Their timeless principle has been ingeniously optimized and implemented in the 6100
REGULATEUR series by Sinn. The pendulum of the historic regulators continue to function in a modern form in these watches.
Round pendulums (in this watch a balance aligned with screws) facilitate the continuous and precise movement of the hour, minute
and second hands. The classic look of the REGULATEUR consciously focuses on a single minute hand as the primary time
measurement. The timepiece has a guilloché dial with contrasting appliqués. The numerals are delicate and recall the style of historic
predecessors.

Not a big fan of regulators, but I'd wear this one in a second. This is a real beauty, plus it's a Sinn and what's not to like about that?

I was looking up prices for this one and they seem to have gone up quite a bit since 2016. Govbergwatches.com had a used one for sale in 2016 for $1950. You can pickup another used one from them today for $2950... How's that for an investment timepiece?
