Introducing The Sinn U50, U50 SDR, And U50 S Dive Watches
Spring is truly starting to look more like Hot Dive Watch Summer, and sweltering off the heels of a couple of truly fun announcements , Sinn has dropped their own contribution via another average size U-Series jumper. Accessible in several versions, this is the new U50 jumper, and what you cannot deny is that it’s 41mm wide, 11.2mm thick, and accessible with a Tegiment solidified steel case.
Sinn’s U-Series represents their most current and cutting-edge plunge watch offerings. With strong decipherability and chunky-yet-present day styling, the U has acquired its way into a great deal of enthusiasts’ hearts and was something of a unimpeachable uber-jumper when I got into watches longer than a decade back. Trouble is, the core product, the U1, is 44mm wide. While it wears well for an enormous watch, it is still a huge watch.
Over the past several years, customers have been asking Sinn for something in a more classic sport watch size. Indeed, they were listening, and the U50 takes much of what made the U1 a much-cherished present day staple and ports it into a 41mm case. For a certain crowd (myself included), this is a huge release.
If 41mm x 11.2mm wasn’t enough to borrow your time, what about 500-meter water resistance, a dual-sided hostile to reflective sapphire crystal, a screw-down crown, a solid caseback, low-pressure resistance, and assurances that the entire package meets both DIN 8310 and DIN 8306 plunging requirements (alongside Euro jumping equipment standards EN 250/EN14143 with certification from DNV GL). On the off chance that you need to make an advanced jump watch without cutting any corners, Sinn does it with typical German panache. Timekeeping is overseen by a Swiss Sellita SW 300-1 with automatic winding, a date display at three, and a 4 Hz heartbeat.
Weighing in at 74 grams without a strap, the U50 comes in several distinct iterations based on three model expressions (portrayed previously). First, the dab blasted steel U50 which has a matching steel bezel with Tegiment solidifying and discretionary Tegiment solidifying for the case (at that point called the U50-T). Second, the U50 SDR, which has a Tegiment solidified bezel but with a black coating (can also be optioned with a full Tegiment solidified steel case, thus the U50-T SDR). At last, the reach besting U50S, which has a fully black Tegiment solidified PVD treatment for the case and bezel. All models are accessible on a matched steel bracelet or your pick of several rubber straps (red, white, or black).
Starting at $2,180 for a U50 on a rubber strap and garnish out at $2,940 for a U50 S on a matched black bracelet (also fully Tegiment treated), the U50 territory looks simply incredible. With zero “fauxtina” or vintage inspiration, an excellent (and meager) case size, and the specs for a true apparatus plunge watch, this is one I simply cannot hold on to take a stab at. I’ve cherished the U1 for quite a while but sadly never had the wrists for it. Presently, I don’t have to.
