  • R.l.P. Helmut Sinn

    From my fb feed posted by Sinn 15 hours ago

    Today we received the news that Helmut Sinn died following a brief illness at the age of 101 years.

    The former pilot and blind-flying instructor founded our company under the name ‘Helmut Sinn Spezialuhren’ in 1961, and helped shape it over many years. We will always retain very fond memories of Helmut Sinn.

      a lot of the swiss watch world owe him quite a debt, he was smart enough to keep a few names and iconic designs alive during the tough times.
      sad loss.

      Despite having the numbers, there is the crazy man in the mountains that none of the tribes will go near!
      Always aim to be that man.

        That's a good innings too. As well built as his timepieces.
        If I think of something witty, I'll be sure to write it here.
