Legibility. That is Sinn’s number one calling card. If Sinn can make the effort to integrate a date wheel and quieten down a challenging aesthetic to the point at which it is downright delicious, the rest of the industry needs to take note. This is, to my eyes, the opposite of laziness on Sinn’s part. And it really makes their competitors look bad.The rest of the industry needs to take note.
But as good as the Sinn R500 chronograph in titanium is, the fact its production is limited to 300 pieces does strike me as a wise limitation. Why?
