Helmut Sinn Dies at 102

Postby Racer-X » February 15th 2018, 7:02pm

by Su Jia Xian (SJX) "When Helmut Sinn retired for the first time, selling his eponymous watch brand, he was well past the retirement age at 78. That retirement, as it turned out, was much too early, for the maker of aviation watches and instruments passed away on February 14, 2018 – at the age of 102. He died after a short illness, according to a statement issued by Guinand on Facebook."

Nice read and a nice tribute to the man as well.

Don’t know that I would want to live to 102 and certainly don’t want to outlive any of my kids.

May he rest in peace.

102? Think I'll be lucky making it to 62!
