Sinn - 240 St GZ with Tide Bezel

| 1 Comment
Together with an eye-catching look, the new Sinn 240 St GZ comes with a function that anyone who interacts with the sea – either as a skilled sailor or a water sports enthusiast – will like: a rotating tide bezel that can be used to read the relative water level of a location in terms of current tide, i.e. the time until the next high tide.

Its use is pretty simple: you just need to know the time of the last high tide - taking it for example from a tide table or tide calendar - and correlate this with the triangular mark ‘HW 1’ on the internal rotating bezel (HW stand for Hochwasser, high tide in German). The hour hand can then be used to read off the expected relative water levels for any given time until the time of the next high tide, which is then shown at the position ‘HW 2’. NW indicates the low tide (Niedrigwasser in German).

The light blue rim of the rotating bezel shows the relative water level of a tide and indicates the most important water levels. The corresponding time can be read with sufficient accuracy on the fine-minutes dial. Each stroke on the fine-minutes dial is equivalent to three minutes. Of course, the tide bezel must be readjusted for each tide.

Water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet, the 43 mm x 11 mm case is crafted from stainless steel with a bead-blasted finish. Thanks to the anti-reflective treatment on both sides of the sapphire crystal, the dark blue dial featuring indices and hands coated with luminescent colour is perfectly legible in any light condition.

The watch is powered by a self-winding Sellita SW 220-1 beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offering 38 hours of power reserve. The movement is shock resistant and anti-magnetic as defined by the DIN 8308 and DIN 8309 standards.

The price of the Sinn 240 St GZ is Euro 1,490 with leather strap or Euro 1,660 with the steel bracelet.
