Sinn Frankfurt Financial District Watch Model 6000 in Platinum

Created in 1999, the Frankfurt Financial District Watch model 6000 was the first of the Frankfurt Financial District series of watches. It embodied the conscious decision to integrate the highly regarded suitability of Sinn’s pilot watches for everyday use in a model featuring classic design. Many customers were enthusiastic about the watch — not least because it also paid homage to the city of Frankfurt, home of a major stock exchange and the city in which the company is located.

The inscription „Frankfurt am Main“, applied for the first time to the dial of a SINN watch, is an expression of the company’s deep connection with Sinn’s hometown. The brand is celebrating this anniversary by releasing a strictly limited edition of 10 platinum Model 6000 timepieces. The exquisite value of these watches is underscored by the case made of platinum, the most valuable of all precious metals, which aficionados appreciate for its purity, rarity, stability and durability.

This noble metal is a fitting complement to the engraved anthracite galvanized dial with rhodanized, manually applied appliqués. The watch includes DIAPAL Technology for greater escapement reliability in the movement, and a five year warranty is included. This extraordinary anniversary timepiece comes in an exclusive wooden case with black and mocha brown alligator leather strap.
