Sinn’s Limited Edition Characteristic Replica Watches UK

Limited editions can be a risky thing—taking an existing and already well-received watch and revising it significantly enough to justify its existence, but also making sure the changes don’t ruin all that was good with the watch in the first place can be quite the challenge, and we’ve all seen our fair share of misses from brands. Sinn, however, seem to have a lot more hits than misses in their back catalog and plenty to choose from in the last few years alone, be they divers, chronographs or three-handers. Although not intended to be a definitive collection, today’s list takes a look at some of our favorite past limited editions from the beloved German brand.

First on our list is the 356 Isetan, a 2016 collaboration with noted Tokyo department store, Isetan. The 356 Isetan features the same 38.5mm case and Sellita SW500 movement (Sinn had already switched from the Valjoux 7750 at this point), but here the running-seconds register and day/date displays are removed to leave a clean and symmetrical dial. The watch retains a domed acrylic, and the hands and indices are painted with “old-radium”-style Luminova for a bit of a vintage vibe. The watch comes on a rich, brown leather strap. Only 50 of these were ever produced.

U1 Dune

As Sinn’s iconic Diver, the U1 has had more limited editions replica watches than any other reference, including the recent U1 Professional and Blu1 releases, but it’s the U1-D “Dune” that I’m giving the honors to here. Released in 2015 in collaboration with The Hour Glass, one of Asia’s largest watch retailers, the Dune replaces the iconic red accents of the mainstay model with a more muted sand-toned finish for the hands, bezel markings and dial text. The Tegimented submarine steel case features a hardened black coating along with the bezel, crown and case back. Bringing it all together, the dial is a matte grey with darker charcoal-grey, lumed indices. This one is limited to just 350 units.

U2c

A 2015 collaboration with German magazine, Chronos, the Sinn U2c fake watches UK another serious tool diver from the brand. Using the same case as the regular U2 model—44mm of black hard-coated, Tegimented submarine steel—the U2c does away with the GMT hand and accompanying 24-hour scale on the inner portion of the dial and leaves only white and grey markings against a deep black dial and bezel. Inside this stealthy looking beast is the ETA 2892-A2. The watch also features Sinn’s Captive Bezel, Ar-Dehumidifying and Temperature Resistant technologies, and it’s water-resistant to a whopping 2,000 meters. Only 50 were ever made, and the entire run sold out quickly.

The Dive Replica Watches Black List

Should you currently be on the lookout for a “stealthier” or black-on-black dive replica watches for holiday gifting, we have selected nine different models, in different price categories, each with different approaches on how to make a black case. Scroll down to see our selections.

Christopher Ward just recently announced a black-PVD version of its C60 Trident Pro (available in 38-mm or 42-mm sizes) These “Vintage Editions” (pictured here, below left, is Ref. C60-42-AUTO-KVKK-C) are water-resistant to 600 meters and powered by either an SW200 or an ETA 2824.

Black_Divers_Part_1One of the watches we will review for this column in the coming weeks is the 49-mm Oris ProDiver Force Recon GMT (Ref. 01-747-7715-7754, above, center) with a DLC-coated titanium case, 1,000 meter water resistance and a bezel-locking mechanism. It is powered by a SW220-1 and – as its name indicates – offers a second time zone and bears the United States Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance unit’s insignia.

Even though the 47-mm Sinn U212 SE was sold out within days after its presentation in 2015, Germany’s Sinn brand does offer a couple of other cheap Sinn replica watches that are equipped with a black case as well: the 44-mm Sinn U1000 (Ref. 1011.020, above right), for example, comes with a hardened stainless steel case with PVD coating, offers 1,000 meter water resistance and is powered by a Valjoux 7750.

Black_Divers_Part_2Clerc’s Hydroscaph range (pictured here, above left, is the 44-mm Ref. H1-4A.1.6) includes versions with black cases as well: both the 500-meter water-resistant chronograph and the standard automatic model are available with a DLC case and bezel; a more recent version offers a carbon bezel. The base caliber is the ETA 2892, with or without chronograph module.

IWC was a pioneer in the use of black ceramic cases, but the two black chronograph models in the current IWC Aquatimer collection (Editions “Galapagos Islands” and “50 Years Science for Galapagos,” with blue lume) both opt instead for stainless steel cases with matte-black rubber coating. The 44-mm-diameter Ref. 3795 (above center) is water-resistant to 300 meters and equipped with IWC’s chronograph caliber 89365.

The black version of the Girard-Perregaux Sea Hawk (Ref. 49960-32-632-FK6A, above right) comes with a 44-mm ceramic case that’s water-resistant to 300 meters (contrast with the steel version’s 1,000-meter water resistance). The watch is powered by the brand’s in-house caliber GP03300, with a power-reserve display at 6 o’clock.

Black_Divers_Part_3In 2015, Blancpain introduced the 43-mm Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe (above left) in a brushed ceramic case (Ref. 5000-0130-NAB A or 5000-0130-B52-A); the Blancpain replica watches uk is water-resistant to 300 meters and powered by Blancpain’s in-house Caliber 1315 (visible thanks to its display caseback), which offers a five-day power reserve. And there’s a chronograph version available as well.

Panerai’s various takes on black cases include examples made with PVD, ceramic, and, since 2015, a composite carbon fiber material: the 47-mm Panerai Luminor 1950 “Carbotech” (Ref. PAM00616, above center) is water resistant to 300 meters and powered by the automatic caliber P.9000. The solid caseback is made of titanium.

Along with the gold and titanium models, Hublot also offers both versions of its massive, 48-mm Hublot Oceanographic (automatic, above right, and chrono) with a case made of carbon. As you will notice, Hublot chose a more traditional carbon fiber look than did Panerai replica watches, but its case is tested to ensure fully 4,000 meters of water resistance.
