While the Sinn 757 UTC is referred to as "The Duochronograph with captive bezel" (how German is that?) it is intended to be used by pilots. Watch collectors typically envision a WW2 flieger when thinking of a pilot watch, but the 757 UTC is filled with Sinn's tech to be useful and durable for the conditions that one might encounter in a cockpit. Unfortunately, when looking up the 757's specs for this article, I discovered that Sinn had discontinued it. It does make models with similar functionality, but was there another reason that Sinn decided to stop making it?
Praesidus has been selling A-11 style watches for some time now but they have all been upsized compared to the Elgin, Waltham and Bulova originals. That changes with its latest version.

Regularly browsing watches on social media has the tendency to compress people'spreferences into a narrow sliver of brands, size ranges, and styles.
