Sinn Dive Watches
Last year, the German Historical Diving Society held its ninth annual meeting in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, with participants from all over the world. Some of them worked at Comex, others have a military background, and most of them are collectors of vintage dive gear – but above all, they all share a unique passion and dedication to document and preserve the history of diving.
Good news! One of my favorite modern mechanical watchmakers Ressence has debuted their first dive watch with the Ressence Type 5. Based in Belgium and started by the truly passionate and innovative Benoit Mintiens, the Ressence concept is about creating an ultra-chic timepiece case filled with oil to create the illusion that it is one solid dial with almost invisible connections between the parts.

Dive watches tend to be among the chunkier types of timepieces, which has often made it hard to find one small enough to be suitable for most ladies’ wrists — whether you’re choosing for yourself or as a gift for that special someone above and below the water. It gets even more complicated if you prefer a mechanical movement. When a Rolex Submariner unquestionably looks great on a woman’s wrist as well as a man’s, some manufacturers do in fact offer smaller versions of their dive watch models.
Sinn is expanding their core dive watch collection with the Sinn U212 EZM 16 after showing the limited edition U212 S E at Baselworld earlier this year. And Sinn has taken the general design of the UX and applied it to a 47mm steel case and a Swiss automatic movement for those wanting their hyper-focused mission timer platform in a larger package.
Sinn has announced an update to their T1/T2 family of titanium dive watches as the German manufacturer of all things tool watch. Now available with deep blue dials, the new Sinn T1 B and T2 B models remain largely unchanged from the T1 and T2 that Sinn launched at Baselworld in 2013 - translating Sinn's U-series dive watches into another thoroughly dive-ready design featuring a titanium case.
