This year saw the pass­ing of two prom­i­nent fig­ures in the watch­mak­ing world. Last Fe­bru­ary, Ger­man watch­maker and for­mer pi­lot Hel­mut Sinn, who founded his epony­mous brand in 1961, passed away last Fe­bru­ary at the age of 101. “It is with the ut­most re­spect that we re­mem­ber Hel­mut Sinn’s ex­tra­or­di­nary and strong-willed per­son­al­ity, his cre­ativ­ity and dy­namism, his en­ergy and his sense of hu­mor,” read a state­ment from com­pany owner Lothar Sch­midt. “The high­est tribute must be paid to his achieve­ments as an en­tre­pre­neur and as the founder of Hel­mut Sinn Spezialuhren, the com­pany that laid the foun­da­tions for the one we know to­day.”

Last June, Chair­man and CEO of Ca­sio Com­puter Co., Ltd. Kazuo Kashio, who played a key role in G-Shock wrist­watches, passed away at the age of 89. A state­ment from the brand read: “He de­voted his life to the cre­ation of new prod­ucts that help im­prove peo­ples’ lives and learn­ing. He led the Ca­sio man­age­ment team for 27 years, over­see­ing the com­pany’s evo­lu­tion from its foun­da­tions laid by for­mer pres­i­dent Tadao Kashio.”
