Sinn EZM 1.1 S – Limited Edition
Limited Edition – purchase limited to 1 per person
Always ready for action – Sinn’s mission timers have been part of their range for 25 years and like the EZM 1.1 S, they are always up to the task.
Special anniversary edition – this striking EZM 1.1 S chronograph is a special limited edition (500 pieces) to mark the 25th anniversary of Sinn’s mission timers. It all started in 1997 with the now legendary EZM 1 – a chronograph that set the benchmark in terms of functionality and clarity. Sinn’s founding principle of ‘form follows function’ sits at the core of its design DNA and served as the basis for all subsequent mission timers in that the design is based exclusively on its intended function.
Over the years, professional users such as the German Central Customs Support Group, ZUZ (Zentrale Unterstützungsgruppe Zoll), pilots, divers, firefighters, emergency doctors, rescue workers, special units of the German police force such as the GSG 9 and Germany’s commando frogman force KSM (Kommando Spezialkräfte der Marine), have relied upon the precision of Sinn’s mission Timers for the successful outcome of their tasks. Thus, each of Sinn’s mission timers is designed precisely according to the principle of functionality, based on individual requirements. The key is in working with the experts – in other words, with those who use the watches. Especially since the conditions in which our mission timers have to prove themselves are as varied as they are challenging including wetness/humidity, magnetism, extreme heat and cold, major changes in temperature, vibrations, impact and knocks as well as aggressive liquids such as salt water or disinfectant, sometimes all at once. Basically, Sinn’s mission timers must withstand a great deal – especially when the going gets tough.
The EZM 1.1 S mission timer has everything it takes to stand its ground even under the most adverse conditions. Equipped with the technology necessary for the most demanding of missions including Ar-Dehumidifying Technology for greater functional reliability and freedom from fogging and Sinn’s special Temperature Resistance Technology for reliable functionality in temperatures ranges between –45°C to +80°C.
The robust movement is protected in a sturdy case, designed to withstand wear. The bead-blasted surface of the stainless-steel case has been hardened using Sinn’s TEGIMENT Technology, which forms the basis for the Black Hard Coating. This gives the chronograph a high quality, modern and professional feel. This combination is also the most durable form of black coating that is feasible according to the latest advancements in coating technology.
As with all things Sinn, functionality is paramount. To complete its core mission of unhindered and accurate time measurement, the EZM 1.1 S must have durable qualities and be able to function with instrument-like precision. As such, the top priority for this mission timer is outstanding readability at a glance – a prerequisite in time-critical situations – even under the most adverse conditions. The EZM 1.1 S therefore features the accurate SINN chronograph movement: the SZ01. Based on the tried and-tested Concepto C99001, the SZ01 is designed in such a way that the watch has a jump, 60-minute stop hand from the dial centre. This enables stop times to be recorded more easily, quickly, and accurately. Firstly, 60 rather than 30 minutes are counted in one sweep of the hand. Secondly, the minute stop scale covers the entire diameter of the dial.
The EZM 1.1 S is field proof down to the last detail. Another useful instrument for recording cumulative time, besides the chronograph function, is the bidirectional, captive countdown pilot’s bezel with minute ratcheting. Its captive design makes it virtually impossible for it to become detached from the case. In the interest of readability and timekeeping, all markings on the dial not relevant to the mission are muted in red. Note also that Sinn has positioned the crown and pushers on the left side of the case to prevent pressure on the back of the hand and keep the watch from getting caught during deployment in time-critical situations.
This mission timer comes in a set with a specially marked, black, integrated silicone strap and a tan, vintage-look leather strap on black PVD pin buckle
