New sporty dive, pilot and GMT watches prove that Sinn is still making the best utilitarian timepieces in the world.

German watchmaker Sinn embodies an image of Teutonic toughness, build quality and no-nonsense, function-first watches made for use and abuse. Their new models for 2020 — which range from chronographs to dive watches to GMT watches (all unceremoniously named only by numbers and abbreviations) — might just be some of the most rugged and compelling timepieces we've seen all year.

R500

Unlike many of the brand's minimalist modern designs, the R500 revives a funky chronograph it produced in the 1960s. Chronographs oriented with the crown and pushers on the top of the case like this are referred to as bullhead chronographs, and they've got a generally funky look that's further emphasized here by some pops of color and other vintage cues. Though chunky in dimensions, titanium construction should keep it lightweight. It's limited to 300 examples.

105 St Sa

The 105 St Sa has the look of a classic Sinn dive watch, here offered in black or white (105 St Sa W) versions in stainless steel. Its rotating bezel featuring a 12-hour scale as well as a 60-count scale for tracking minutes or seconds indicates that this watch has more versatile intentions than those of a pure dive watch. A vertical day-date display at 6 o'clock maintains a pleasing symmetry.

Diameter: 41mm

As the name indicates, this is an iteration of the 105 St Sa above. It features a similar design and specs to that watch, but here is interpreted as a pilot's watch with a GMT (or UTC) function and 24-hour rotating bezel for tracking other time zones. It's also available in black or white dial versions.
