Default SINN for a TUTIMA...

Just did a fun trade with my strap maker G. in Athens, Greece. His father knew a friend who had a SINN clock NaBo 17zm in mintish shape from a German airforce jet Tornado and so G. managed to get his father to trade something for the mil clock.
G. liked my 1985 German Tutima Mil Chrono with the Lemania 5100 mvt. We ended up trading. He first made a pocket holder but then fashioned a desk holder for the SINN chrono.

wow. that's a helluva trade. And a nice piece of memorabilia - thanks for sharing.

Personally, I'd like to have a dash mounted rally timer by Heuer or similar. Timers like this are a whole genre of their own.

My friend appreciates military things as I, so we each got what we wanted haha! My SINN pilot watch 103 ti TESTAF will have a nice companion now.

Thian, your military horological taste and connections are second to none. Great trade. Win win for everyone. Dave

A very cool trade Thian! That's one interesting conversation piece. Always like your montages too although, you might want to use an image of a Tornado instead of a Typhoon?

The SINN NaBo17ZM arrived today and it is really excellent in condition. Like new really! Winding it is crisp. The dial and hands are perfect. G. made a really nice job of creating a stand.
