They used to, but they moved to elabore which they upgraded like a madman than back to top, nowadays it's random what you get in a 556. But some dudes say they would prefer the upgraded elabore because it's more accurate.

I wonder if it's possible to make a Venus-rated watch. Pressure requirement should be a bit under 1000m WR, so that's definitely doable, but surface temperature is going to be about 460°C, which means traditional gaskets will be destroyed, steel parts will heat way beyond the temperature for bluing, and springs will completely lose their tension. For quartz watches electronics will burn, plastics will melt, soldering will melt (even the melting point of silver solder is around the surface Venus temperature) and probably a lot of other nasty shit.

Every time someone mentions the sinn 104 or 556, someone else is quick to point out that it doesn't come with Sinn's proprietary technology.

What does this mean tho? When I looked it up briefly I found something about case hardening and some gas escape valve (I may be getting confused with something else on that one)

which watches have this technology?

tegimented steal
SUG cases
meme pvd coating
meme bezel
testaf, dnv gl standards

And there are other "technologies" not worthy of mentioning, but those are included within every sinn (556, 104 too)
Those are:
sinn's special oil in the movement
some secret stuff they do with the etas
low pressure resistance
better heat resistance than other watches in the same league
their stainless steal is kinda good too

Cooper Carter

Apart from case hardening most are kinda horseshit meme "technologies".

Their biggest scam is their argon filled cases, they charge Sinn certified independents 1500€ for a five liter argon tank. And the device itself is a huge letdown. Once the case is filled, the watchmaker has to take it out of the machine to install the copper-sulfate plug, exposing the whole teutonic precision filled case to air. You're supposed to hold the case with the hole facing up so the heavier than air argon doesn't leak out while you install the plug.

Real fancy precision watchmaking there.

I've never taken one apart so I can't say for sure, but I think that the logo is screen printed on to the back of the plastic so you should be able to scrape it off with enough patience. Alternatively, you could attack your problem from the top instead and paint from the front of the glass, hit it up with a gloss coat and polish the shit out of it with something like automotive buffing compound but that might not look good or last long. If you can do it from the back by removing the logo, you should definitely do that instead, it will look a lot better.

It might sound crazy, but for me it was honestly this thread.

I may have spent over a thousand dollars but I’m well on my way to have every Seiko windyknob, but only if I don’t use, otherwise my dreams will fall away.

It's thin plastic. You could probably remove the tampograph with alcohol or 50/50 diluted acetone, then polish the crystal with a headlight polishing compound. Meguiars PlastX and other similar compounds are excellent for polishing plastic crystals, not too abrasive, easy to control, and removes oxidation at the same time.
Turns this into pic related with a light buff.

The 56x chronometer, as points out, is a very good contender for GOAT vintage Omega movement.

I think there is a decent argument to be made that the 56x might be the greatest series produced automatic of the pre-quartz era, based on the astronomical success rates it had passing chronometer testing with a 19,800 beat rate where most other period chronometer automatics required a 28,800 or higher beat rate to achieve that kind of performance.

Plus its just beautiful to look at.

You have to take the watch apart then push the NATO onto it and insert depends exactly where you want it to be on the NATO band it will just barely work but you won’t be able to slide the watch on the band afterwards you basically install the Watch on the NATO you don’t just slide it on like a regular watch

Nicer case but the lack of micro adjustment in the clasp is niggly. The hands are polished on one side and brushed on the other which is really cool. The crown stone is ceramic and looks better in person than on the store page.
The bracelet is really cool, the edges that touch another edge of a bracelet section are polished which gives a really cool look. Dial and case look as great as online. Only wish is that the date was a colour as the dial , dark blue preference but black would look better too.

Pros:
best wr thanks to oil filled case, with all the other advantages (no fogging in the dial, extremely good visibility especially under water)
still not large like deepmeme challenge
Cons:
quartz (although it's a good ETA thermocompensated, so it's a matter of taste)
you'll have to send it to Germany every time the battery dies. It does it about every 7 years so it isn't a really big concern.

also, you can fill only digital watches or analog quartz which are "strong" enough to work in a liquid. Automatic watches obviuosly can't work.

Well the old black bays had ETA movements and were 11mm thick. It was only when they moved to the in-house they went to 14mm.

I looked it up and you can see the reps also now have the added space behind to make space for the new movement (that isn't really there). I guess the dumb dealers just copy pasted shit across and listed it as 11-12mm by mistake.

Yeah, but on the rose one the printing of the rose is a pretty big tell. I'd rather deal with the inconvenience of my watch being 2mm thicker if it was nicer, I have OCD for that kind of thing. The misprinted "300f" for example on the noob v7 sub would drive me insane.
