The Sinn 103 ST OU was made in 200 pieces, the result of a collaboration between Sinn and high-end German retailer Manufaktum. The watch features a retro theme with purposefully aged luminous hour markers, syringe hands, and a "Snail Scale" Tachymeter, giving the watch a 1940s theme. The case is Sinn's beautiful 103, a continuation of the EPSA chronograph case used in the 1960s. The movement is the Valjoux 7750 modified to eliminate the minute and hour counter functions. Overall a very interesting, limited-edition watch from Sinn.
