As a limited edition of just 55 pieces, this Sinn 6200 Meisterbund I limited edition watch (debuted here) is going to be rather rare – but at the same time, it should also be a sign of things to come, as this is the first watch released by Sinn with an exclusive new UWD movement. Sinn is based in Frankfurt and worked closely with UWD (Uhren-Werke-Dresden) in Dresden to develop the caliber UWD 33.1 mechanical movement that you see inside of the Sinn 6200 Meisterbund I watch. It is a real beauty and feels like a decent value for the money. Who is behind UWD? None other than Marco Lang of Lang & Heyne watches, that produces very fine and traditional German watches.
According to Marco Lang, he and his partners were keen to open up a real German watch manufacture whose goal was to do special watch projects for other brands. Until UWD opened up, as far as I know, there were no major players in Germany who were in the business of producing movements for others. Apparently, Sinn is their first major client and helped them to get to the point where they are now. Sinn also apparently worked closely with them on the design of the UWD 33.1 movement which has an incredible-looking design, even if it is a basic manually wound time-only movement.
