Boast­ing a case made of spe­cially hard­ened sub­ma­rine steel with a hard coat­ing, this tick­ing jack-of-all-trades from Frankfurt am Main re­sists cor­ro­sion by salt­wa­ter and stays wa­ter­tight to 2,000 me­ters. But that’s not all: Sinn’s own stay-dry technology re­lies on a sul­fate cap­sule to ef­fec­tively cap­ture any mois­ture that might pen­e­trate into the case as the years go by. Fur­ther­more, tests con­ducted inside a cli­matic ex­po­sure cab­i­net guar­an­tee that this 44-mm wrist­watch func­tions per­fectly at tem­per­a­tures rang­ing from -45 to +80 de­grees C (-49 to + 176 de­grees F). The bracelet and case are equally well pro­tected against scratches; the for­mer cul­mi­nates in a fold­ing clasp with a divers’ex­ten­sion mech­a­nism. Along with the time of day or night and the date, ETA’S self-wind­ing Cal­iber 2893 also shows the time in a sec­ond time zone. Con­sid­er­ing all you get for your money, $3,230 is a good price to pay.
