Earlier this year, German watch brand SINN unveiled a special edition 6200 MEISTERBUND I timepiece in rose gold to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the specialist watch company. Now the brand releases a white gold version of this model in a limited edition of 55 pieces.
Like its rose gold sibling, three “masters of their trade” have also come together for the 6200 WG Meisterbund I edition: Uhren-Werke-Dresden (UWD), Sächsische Uhrentechnologie GmbH (SUG) from Glashütte and Sinn Spezialuhren.
SUG is responsible for building and manufacturing the case made of 18-carat white gold, which proudly bears the “MEISTERBUND” engraving on the side – a distinguishing feature of Sinn Meisterbund series. Sinn Spezialuhren shapes the “face” of the 6200 WG Meisterbund I, which is in keeping with the brand’s traditional masterpieces, thanks to aguilloché and anthracite electroplated dial, while being suitable for everyday use. The 6200 WG Meisterbund I is thus also pressure resistant up to 10 bar and resistant to low pressure. UWD is responsible for manufacturing the high-quality hand-wound calibre UWD 33.1, which proved hugely successful in the rose gold edition, where it was used for the first time in series production.
The centrepiece is the fine, exquisitely decorated hand-wound calibre UWD 33.1 made of nickel silver – a contemporary technical interpretation of a design and development evoking a traditional sense of quality. With a flying barrel supported on one side, it is a prime example of precision and functional robustness while also expressing watchmaking craftsmanship at its best.
The reserve can be adjusted by shifting the eccentric weights in the balance system. This also offsets the imbalance in the complete oscillating system of the watch. The regulator system, on the other hand, provides a convenient means of precision adjustment and beat setting adjustment. Also noteworthy is the fact that all parts of the movement are exquisitely decorated. Plates and cocks are characterised by matte, diamond-planed edges.
The combination of matte and polished surfaces gives the movement an exquisite feel, while the diamond profiles underscore the high level of quality. The impression of a consistently designed watch is completed by the fact that the manufactured movement, made of nickel silver and with a diameter of 33 mm, so harmoniously fits into the white gold case which has a diameter of 40 mm.
