The upgrade to a yellow UTC hand offers not only a point of difference in the overall design but also facilitates legibility via the colour contrast. This small feature brings a good deal of clarity to an otherwise highly functional aviation timepiece.
The 900 DIAPAL brings together a number of different SINN technologies which, when combined, yield maximum reliability in terms of time measurement and functionality. Worthy of particular mention here is DIAPAL Technology for a lubrication-free anchor escapement. This is documented by the DIAPAL lettering on the electroplated charcoal grey dial. As a result of this extraordinary technology we offer a five year warranty on the 900 DIAPAL. The large pilot chronograph also features Ar-Dehumidifying Technology for increased functional reliability and freedom from fogging. The sanitised stainless steel case has been hardened with TEGIMENT Technology making it especially scratch resistant.
Magnetic Field Protection up to 80,000 A/m completes the list of technologies. Thanks to the luminous appliqués, the 900 DIAPAL also offers optimum readability even in the dark. The five conversion and tracking scales on the case back for European and American units are extremely practical.

The 900 series comprises Sinn’s multifunctional model range. The dial displays two time zones and the case back and dial include a multitude of calculation scales for European and American base units. The goal of this series was to create a stately watch with many functions in a diameter of 44mm and a height of 15.5mm. The result speaks for itself. The 900 series watches are truly multifunctional, and offer protection against water, cold, high and low pressure, magnetic fields and scratches. These watches have been given the title of the ‘expedition watches’, for obvious reasons.
In addition to its multitude of functions, the watch offers a case that has been protected against abrasion, scratches and wear and tear via Sinn’s patented Tegiment steel hardening, and sapphire crystal that has been treated with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal coating ensuring a hardness of 1800 HV. Furthermore, the dial is highly luminous in the dark thanks to the simple and clear orientation of the markers. The amount of tasks that can be performed with the model 900 watch is remarkable, and being remarkable is exactly what this watch was intended to be.
