Germany’s commando frogman force, KSM (Kommando Spezialkräfte der Marine), will now be wearing a diving watch made by Sinn Spezialuhren zu Frankfurt am Main on its special missions: the mission timer UX S Combat Swimmer (EZM 2B).
The development of this official timepiece was based on the technical mission requirements formulated in a tender by the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw). Out of all participating watchmaking companies, Sinn Spezialuhren best met the requirements.
These include optimum readability under the most adverse lighting and water conditions, seawater resistance, extreme durability and operation of the rotating bezel even when wearing gloves.
The Sinn Spezialuhren mission timer is designed specifically for professional users for whom precise, quick time measurement is crucial – especially in critical situations. The UX S Combat Swimmer is therefore also intended purely for use in specific missions.
The UX S Combat Swimmer is produced exclusively for KSM and is not available for retail.
