Sinn Spezialuhren Wins iF Design Award Again

Continuing Excellence in Design and Functionality

Sinn Spezialuhren, renowned manufacturer of high-quality mechanical watches, has once again been honored with an esteemed award. One of Sinn Spezialuhren’s watches has been bestowed with the prestigious iF Design Award 2023, reaffirming their position among the world’s top design labels.

iF Design Award 2023 for Model 105 St Sa UTC W The model 105 St Sa UTC W, an exceptional blend of technical prowess, sporty aesthetics, and a wide range of characteristic SINN functions, has captivated the 132-member jury. This marks the second consecutive year in which Sinn Spezialuhren has met the stringent evaluation criteria, garnering recognition from the international panel of experts and receiving this esteemed design accolade. Unlike other awards, the iF Design Award meticulously assesses contenders through comprehensive evaluation in areas such as innovation, form, functionality, distinctiveness, and impact, forming the basis of a scoring system. The model 105 St Sa UTC W secured an impressive score of 285 out of 500 possible points.

The timepiece that received the award effortlessly combines a contemporary, minimalist design with the versatility of being a multi-functional instrument. The bezel’s durability is ensured by SINN’s patented black hard coating on a tegimented base, while the luminous dial adorned with round indices captivates with its fresh and uncluttered aesthetic.

Form Follows Function For Lothar Schmidt, a certified engineer and owner of Sinn Spezialuhren, this award serves as confirmation that the company’s philosophy of developing and designing timepieces based on functional principles remains unwavering. Schmidt states, “We firmly believe that form should always follow function in the design of our watches. This award further validates that exceptional design quality and uncompromising functionality are not mutually exclusive, but rather interdependent. We are especially proud that our 105 St Sa UTC W has been recognized with the iF Design Award this year.”

Design Excellence at its Peak Since 1954, the iF Design Award has stood as a pinnacle of global recognition for exceptional design. Presented annually by iF International Forum Design GmbH, the world’s oldest independent design institution, this prestigious award is renowned worldwide and encompasses a wide range of design disciplines.
