WATCHPRO Salon 2021: Damascus steel brings organic style to Sinn’s Damaszener watch

0

Damascus steel is most associated with ancient swords and modern day high end kitchen knives, but German watchmaker Sinn has put the metal to work in a 100-piece limited edition of its Damaszener watch.

Damascus steel was used to create weapons 2000 years ago because it is tough and easy to mill to a sharp edge.

Those qualities make it perfect for watchmaking as well, plus it has a distrinctive wavy pattern that add interest to the Sinn 1800 S GG Damaszener.

Sinn is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, and will mark the occassion with a presentation at WATCHPRO Salon, which takes place from November 12 to 13 at luxury The Londoner Hotel on Leicester Square.

Sinn is known for using interesting and historic materials in its watches.

For example, in 1995 the company presented the first watch made from 22ct yellow gold with a material hardness equal to that of stainless steel.

In 2005, German submarine steel was used for the first time in diving watches.

Using Damascus steel for the 1800 S GG Damaszener gives an organic pattern of alternating bands of light and dark that is unique to every watch.

The one-piece dial and central part of the case were forged from a complete steel block rather than designed as separate components, so the Damascus pattern on the dial continues across the entire case.

Sinn has used 18ct gold as an accent on the hands and applied hour markers for the 43mm watches, which are powered by a Sellita SW300-1 automatic movement.

They retail for €8250.
