Hello there, this is a wonderful watch and to me, given its background, it is the Sinn chrono if one must narrow it down to a single model.
Congratulations on yours, it really looks beautiful with a creamy patina on hands and hour bars - perfectly matching too: this is how a vintage watch should look like.

Here's a picture of mine: I was lucky enough to get one with the old bracelet.
Cheers

Fabrizio, thank you.

I agree, this for me is the quintessential Sinn chronograph too. The old bracelet looks great on your 142. Congratulations!

Jeff, let's schedule our next coffee gtg soon.
I'm afraid to, ever time we meet up watches change hands. :roll:

JK, I look forward to it. I always assumed the 142 would feel too big for me, but seeing it on your wrist, it looks great. I really am anxious to try it on, but I know once I do I'll be in big trouble.

Hahaha. I hope nothing bad happens this time. I would like to see your 2 recent Sinn purchases too.

The 142 wears really nicely, even on a smaller wrist. Here's a quick pic of mine beside my EZM-3 and 144 GMT. Mine is obviously one of the older ones, but I haven't seen many (any?) with these hands.





I have the old NSA bracelet on mine as well,but it was a little short, even for my girly wrist. Thanks to a WUS member, I now have the extra links I needed and can wear it on the original steel. Unfortunately, I don't have a decent photo of this one on the bracelet. It's a rainy day here so maybe I'll take some watch pics.

Thanks a lot...:-!

Looks like my hunt for a 142 starts now. But wait, the 157 is calling me too! I know, I know...two words: get both.

Stick a fork in me, I'm done. ;-)

It looks great on your wrist! Normally, I do not care for day date displays, but when it is in German, it somehow allows it to play into the watch heritage instead of being unnecessary. I also like the sporty red seconds hand!

It was nice to see you again Jeff. Great watch collection. Remember, I am first dibs on all those old Sinns and the Fortis. :-!

It's time for you to look for a 142. It looks good on your wrist. ;-) |>


Just had a chance to try on Okinana's 142. I was really hoping I'd find it too big, but unfortunately, I love it. Great, another must have!



A little Lemania party.

You got it my friend (although I'll never sell em lol! Well, maybe the Fortis) and good seeing you too.
