FS: Sinn 809 Firefighter Edition with Box + COSC Papers

Hi CT,

I thought I listed this on CT but evidently forgot, so here it is... For sale is my Sinn 809 which comes with its box and COSC papers. Scroll all the way down past the wall of text if you want to see pictures .

The 809 is one of the thinnest rated 200m rated divers I've come across, at about 9.5mm thick. An especially cool aspect of the watch is that the lume for the hour markers are painted on the inside of the crystal, instead of the dial.

This watch has the signed Sinn crown, along with an early style Sinn bracelet (which has some stretch to it). The bracelet integrates well with the case of the watch and completes the look very well. I'm confident that the bracelet goes with the watch, because the dial is also the earlier variant (with "T Swiss Made T") at the bottom and has tritium lume.

Beating inside of it is a COSC certified ETA 2892 movement. Service history is unknown, but it's performing very well. If you ever wanted to get it serviced, I think most owners of this watch send it to RGM if in the United States, or Sinn directly.

Certainly still under the radar, and a really really awesome watch.


I can't find any serious flaws with the watch. Only thing is the bracelet has some stretch to it. Besides that the condition is superb.

I sized the bracelet to my 7" wrist and it's kinda tight because I don't like it when they move. There are a couple extra links (see pictures), so I'd be glad to go to my guy and adjust them for you before I ship. Otherwise, you can do it but just be warned depending on your wrist size you might not be able to put it on immediately until you add links on!


I had some trouble pricing it, as it's one of the nicest examples I've seen with its corresponding box and papers. I'd like to ask $2,000 with FedEx Overnight Shipping and see where that takes us. Offers are always welcome. As I'm selling to fund something else, I'd like the sale to be final. So please ask any questions, etc. up front -- I'm responsive and always happy to provide any information that I can.

I have plenty of references on OF and MWR as "shishy", and you can also find me here:

I also listed the watch on eBay with a higher BIN, just FYI... might pull it from there soon as I've only been contacted by scammers!
