New Sinn DIN 8330 Certified Aviator Watches

Sinn's new DIN 8330 watches have been tested along similar lines (200m water resistance, functionality in temperatures spanning –45°C up to +80°C, etc.), but the scope of watches that can chase this certification has been broadened to include quartz watches – this is a key differentiator between DIN and TESTAF. Furthermore, several testing criteria have been strengthened – that for legibility (specifically, compatibility with night vision goggles), operability with gloves, shock and impact resistance, and special protection from exposure to aviation fluids like de-icer or fuel. A new test was also developed specifically for DIN 8330, which subjects the watches to repeated, prolonged air pressure changes that simulate the differences between pressures at sea level and those inside a pressurized cockpit.
