Back at Baselworld 2019 we reviewed many of the major horology brands, but among some many interesting offerings some get over-seen. Hence our need to glance back and take a closer look at the “Sinn 206 Arktis II”.


The 43mm case is made of stainless-steel with a polished and satinized finish, while on the flip-side we encounter a see-through sapphire crystal exhibition case back, which allows to view the inner works of the mechanical movement.


Mounted to the case is a diver’s rotating bezel with minute ratcheting and a luminous key mark.

It also come equipped with screw-in setting-crown and push-pieces to operate the chronograph functions, which have all been designed according to Sinn’s “D-3 system”, which are mounted directly in a fine-finish case aperture, creating a perfect seal to the case. This innovative craftsmanship even allows to use the pushers underwater. All topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating, which also assists with water-resistance on this watch reaching up to 300 meters (960 feet).


Time is exhibited on either a black or an electroplated blue dial with a sunburst decoration finish. Reading time goes thru white Arabic numerals, followed by a ring of white printed minute/seconds markers circling the periphery of the dial.

It features a chronograph function with three sub-dials: a 12-hour counter at the 6 o’clock position; a sub-seconds aligned with the 9 o’clock spot; and a 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock. There is also a double-window day/date aperture at the 3 o’clock position. The central hour/minute hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
