The 900 is an automatic chronograph by Sinn produced since 2004. It was initially marketed as a field watch but transformed into a pilot's watch by 2011.


The expedition watch model 900, beneath a second timezone, presents many time-based units on the smallest space.

Seen from the outside to the inside, the following data can be read or set

  • By the 24-hour scale and the yellow UTC hands the day and night hours of a day.
  • By the UTC hands in conjunction with the ordinary hours hand and the sun the north direction can be determined.
  • The pilot's bezel - bidirectional rotating via the crown at 10 o'clock - allows direct, minute-precise reading of time intervals up to one hour. Average speeds between 65 and 600 km/h can be displayed with the help of a universal hour scale with base 1. This scale also allows to convert any units to their average per hour, for example the piece numbers of a production process.
  • Units per minute like pulse or respiratory rate are measured with an analog designed scale with a base 15. The average value per minute can be read directly, when the time for 15 strokes, breaths or any other countable size is stopped.
  • The red telemeter scale measures the distance of a sound source from ones own site, for example, the distance of a thunderstorm area, using the time difference between lightning and thunder.
  • At stop-minutes and hours counter, on the basis of an average walking pace of 5 km/h, traveled distances up to 60 km can be read.

To make the Sinn 900 an adequate companion for auto testers and tour friends, Sinn engineers have engraved on the caseback the tire/speed indices and the most important conversion scales for European and American units, such as liters/100 km in miles/gallon.

In 2009, Sinn introduced the 900 Pilot, a variant on the 900 with an inner pilot's watch bezel using a crown at 10 00. The solid caseback on the Pilot features an English/metric conversion chart. The Pilot model has magnetic resistance to 80,000 A/m. All non-pilot versions were retired by 2011, shortly after a PVD-coated “Pilot S” was added. A DIAPAL version was added in 2013 with the same pilot's watch bezel.
