Diving with Sinn: The limited edition U1 Camouflage

Watch of steel

Diving with Sinn: The limited edition U1 Camouflage
Made to withstand the harshest of oceanic pressures, Sinn’s limited edition U1 Camouflage is German engineering at its finest

Being great is trying enough but being exceptional is an even tougher and trickier undertaking. So what would make a diver's watch stand out from among a sea of typical diving watches? Enter Sinn with the U1 Camouflage, an eye-catching precision machine sheathed in military colours and toughened with German submarine steel.

Named after the country's first submersible — the U1 U-boat — at the turn of the 20th century that revolutionised the way mankind could safely plumb the depths of the seas, this singular timepiece too is completely manufactured with high-strength seawater resistant German submarine steel. The epitome of a diver's watch, the U1 Camouflage runs on a shock-resistant and anti-magnetic self-winding SW 200-1 calibre with 28,800 semi-oscillations per hour. Its captive rotating bezel also incorporates proprietary Sinn Tegiment Techology on the surface for an enhanced scratchproof attribute. Unique diving considerations were also taken into account, thereby positioning the crown at the 4 o'clock marker instead of the traditional 3 o'clock to prevent pressure on the back of the hand.

Having undergone testing based on European diving equipment standards and certified by the international DNV GL board to be pressure-resistant up to a diving depth of 1,000 metres, the remarkable capabilities of the U1 Camouflage doesn't just end there. More than meets the eye, its camo dial functions beyond a visually bold design. Paired with a set of luminescent hands and indexes that generate an intense glow when placed in low light conditions, the rest of the watch face seemingly vanishes into the darkness, thus proving true its name. 

Additionally, an olive-toned textile strap or a matching green silicone strap accompanies the watch for you to switch them out at your preference or to suit the occasion. A true champ of diver watches, Sinn's U1 Camouflage is the steely companion that won't fail you.
