Sinn EZM 9 Tegimented Titanium – $3,680
Right here’s the factor, I attempted so as to add a Ming my listing. It appeared like the precise factor to do. When speaking about cool lugs, how may I not embody these whimsical flared lugs? However, even on this hypothetical listing with hypothetical cash, I couldn’t do it. I don’t suppose Ming shall be offended since they don’t have any watches to promote me, hypothetical or actual.
I like huge, chunky watches. Often, I’m silly sufficient to spend actual cash on an actual watch that lacks this presence. They at all times sit forgotten in my watch field. I couldn’t do this to a hypothetical Ming. So as a substitute, coming in at quantity two, is a watch I WILL put on: The Sinn EZM 9 Tegimented Titanium.
Traditionally, lugs have had a single function: securing a watch to a wrist. They’re superb at this and didn’t want any improvements. However Sinn innovated anyway, and I’m glad they did. Sinn is a model with a well-deserved popularity for overengineering. And, in true Sinn vogue, if they’ll fill a case with nitrogen, harden the titanium, and use temperature resistant oils, they may as nicely add their Ar-Dehumidifying Expertise to a lug to go along with it.
Do I really want this additional moisture safety standing guard over an SW200? No, however I don’t actually need any of the specs of this TESTAF licensed pilots watch with 200 meters of water resistance and a copper sulphate capsule tucked right into a lug. Since Sinn is providing… it might be impolite to say no. And on the highest worth level on the listing at $3680, the additional assurance is welcome.
Why choose the 44mm EZM as a substitute of one thing extra midsize, such because the U50? If I’m leaving Ming off the listing for its modest wrist presence, I’d as nicely go huge. With the EZM, I can go huge with out sacrificing consolation due to the titanium case and a modest thickness of solely 12mm.
