The chronograph 936 from German watchmaker Sinn is a reliable and elegant timepiece equipped with Tegiment Technology and Magnetic Field Protection. The dial is designed to greatly increase clarity and readability. The watch features the chronograph movement SZ05 which was redesigned in house and focuses on the stopwatch minute display with 60-second scale at 3 o’clock and running seconds at 9 o’clock.
The advantage of this is that it does away with the necessity of adding stopwatch minutes, as is required with conventional 30-second stopwatch minute displays. Optimum readability is also ensured in the dark, as the indices, hour and minute hands are coated in luminous white. Furthermore, the 936 is pressure-resistant up to 100 meters and resistant to low pressure.
The 936 also boasts clear design aesthetics expressed through elegant details such as the skeletonized hour and minute hands – both of which are rhodium coated and matt brushed. The counter rings for the stopwatch minutes and seconds have an iridescent effect, caused by a fine central groove.
The mechanical movement developed in-house by Sinn features a self-winding mechanism and is shock resistant. The watch case is made of stainless steel, with a polished finish and a sapphire crystal glass covers the watch front which is anti-reflective on both sides.
The case back of the watch is fastened with screws and is nickel-free. The watch meets the technical requirements for waterproofness, as set out in standard DIN 8310. Key watch functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date display and chronograph.
Thanks to the Tegiment technology the watch is especially scratch-resistant. TEGIMENT Technology raises the hardness level of the base material, e.g. stainless steel, by a significant factor. The technology was first introduced in the 756 Duochronograph at the International Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show in Basel in 2003, replacing the ice hardening technique for nickel-free watch cases first presented in 2002. Originally Tegiment Technology was only used on stainless steel cases. The term is now used to refer to all materials with a hardened surface.
The watch diameter measures 43 mm and weighs 111 grams without strap. The watch dial is matte black and the indices are coated with luminescent color including the hour and minute hands and each watch comes with a two-year warranty.
