Contact tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it! Shop all Sinn watches: http://bit.ly/2KePakK Shop all Rolex watches: http://bit.ly/2uUNJD9 Rolex vs Sinn watches isn’t a common watch buyer consideration, but it should be; there’s more common ground than meets the eye. Both luxury watch brands are known first and foremost as producers of tough stainless steel sports watches, and Rolex is nothing if not focused on sport-specific watches such as its Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116520. Sinn takes the same approach with its 910 55th anniversary 910.010; it is as purposeful as the Rolex. The first Rolex Daytona launched in 1963; an automatic Daytona arrived in 1988; the in-house caliber 4130 Rolex Daytona bowed at Basel 2000. Today’s white dial Daytona 116520 has been discontinued since 2016, but it remains identical in most respects to a ceramic-bezel 2019 Rolex Daytona. Key features include a 40mm stainless steel case, a full Rolex Oyster bracelet and clasp with Easylink extension, and white dial with white gold hands, indices, and Rolex crown. Technical specifications of the Rolex Daytona include super luminova for easy reading at night and 100-meter water resistance thanks to a screw-down Triplock crown and chronograph pushers. The Rolex caliber 4130 automatic chronograph movement boasts a 72-hour (three day) power reserve and a COSC Swiss chronometer certification. Additional features include stop seconds (hacking) a chronograph complication with both vertical clutch and column wheel, a full balance bridge with free sprung balance, and a Breguet overcoil hairspring with Parachrom Blue antimagnetic alloy. The 2016 Sinn 910 Anniversary Rattrapante is a 300-piece stainless steel limited edition. It celebrates 55 years of Sinn Spezialuhren of Frankfurst. While Sinn is best-known for its pilot’s watches and U-Boat steel dive watches, the 910.010 is a graceful split-seconds chronograph with a glorious crème-lacquered dial. At 41.5mm, the SUG-built steel case is close enough in size to justify direct comparison to the 40mm Cosmograph Daytona. A set of black hands and applied hour indices punctuate the soft tones of the dial; a double-concentric tachymeter permits reading of speed at race tracks. Sinn equips its 55th anniversary rattrapante chronograph with a double deployant clasp and a full stainless steel bracelet. The hex screws that fix the bracelet’s removable links are the only clue as to the hardcore tool-watch focus of Sinn’s more common models. A caliber 7753 modified by La Joux Perret provides automatic winding, a 44-hour power reserve, stop seconds, and the rattrapant function. Sinn employs a variant that has been adapted for split-seconds functionality, reduced to a twin register layout (i.e., chrono minutes and seconds), and converted to crisp column wheel operation. Unlike the Rolex, the Sinn 910.010 includes a sapphire display caseback without compromising its 100-meter water resistance. Sinn vs Rolex starts now on Versus!
