Default Was Sinn

the originator of this design? If so, homage versions have since appeared by Pulsar and now K. Cole. Highly legible, IMHO, in either version. (K. Cole image by vendor)

Default Re: Was Sinn

Any watch that bills itself as an aviation watch with the face designed to look like the old "steam" gauges on aircraft has a face like that. I don't think Sinn is the originator. I've seen watches from the 1960s that had that type. I don't know who was the first.

Thanks for that info, Nelson. My Pulsar PXH221 didn't bill itself as an aviation watch, but the face is similar. It also came from the manufacturer with a cloth camo strap that didn't, IMHO, fit at all and got promptly changed to a black leather strap with white stitching. It remains my most legible watch though.
