 The Hour Glass Special Edition

The Hour Glass is pleased to unveil the latest and edgiest U1 to date – the U1-D, a Special Ops Edition. After a wait of 7 years since the last U1 project, The Hour Glass and Sinn have joined forces once again to create this highly anticipated 3rd installation of the U1 collectible series.

Taking inspiration from military codes, the Sinn U1-D is dressed in sartorial ruggedness of a sand trooper warrior – featuring a matte grey dial, contrasted with charcoal indices and sand-beige detailing – a significant departure from the U1’s minimalist black tones. Paired with a distressed tan brown calf leather strap with white stitching, the U1-D also comes in Camo Zulu strap – the final touches to the guerilla grunge style of the mission timer.

Sinn U1 has come a long way from its birth as a cult status watch whispered about and shared only amongst sports watch connoisseurs; today, the U1 is an icon in its own rights, immediately recognisable on a wrist. Boldly different and completely unexpected, the U1-D Mission Dune is conceived by and created for The Hour Glass, leading as a global unprecedented twist to this most iconic U1 series of Sinn.

In a Special Edition to commemorate the 35th anniversary of The Hour Glass, expect the U1-D stealth instrument to rise to the ranks of the still talked-about U-series from The Hour Glass hall of fame: U1-Tempus, U1-Black & Ultimate U – all of which are sold-out capsule collections.

The U1-D continues to be powered with the heavy duty proprietary technologies that Sinn is known for.

Do visit your favourite The Hour Glass boutique to reserve your Sinn U1-D Special Ops Edition before they disappear like true stealth troopers.
