Since its establishment in 1961, German watch brand Sinn focused continuously on high-quality mechanical watches combining a traditional sense of quality with advanced solutions. This has repeatedly resulted in the use of totally new watchmaking materials. In1995, the brand presented the first watch made of 22-carat yellow gold with a material hardness equal to that of stainless steel (220 HV). In 2005, German Submarine Steel was used for the first time in diving watches.
The new limited edition 1800 S model made of Damascus steel seamlessly follows on from this by rendering the highly traditional material appropriate for watch cases – without forsaking but rather enhancing its special allure. The watch thus displays a uniqueness that is immediately reflected in its design and appearance. In order to bring the characteristics textures of Damascus steel to the fore – an organic pattern of alternating bands of light and dark – the dial and central part of the case are forged from a complete steel block rather than designed as separate components, as is customary. The result is rather remarkable: for the Damascus pattern on the dial continues across the entire case to create a fascinating and impressive whole.
Damascus steel has fascinated humankind for centuries. It gained its legendary reputation above all in the making of swords, knives and blades. Damascus steel is a combination of at least two different types of steel, layered to create the aforesaid surface design.
The piece is then forged, halved while in a glowing state and layered together again. Experts refer to this as ‘folding’. By combining soft and hard steels, a new kind of steel is created, one which displays properties of both. In the final stage of production, the Damascus pattern is made visible through surface etching. The steels are dissolved to varying extents by acid, thus forming the typical light and dark nuances.
Also during production of the 1800 S DAMASZENER, the layered structure is made visible through final surface etching, which gives the material its characteristic appearance. Each watch thus becomes an extraordinary and unique timepiece, as the flow of lines cannot be physically manipulated.
