MeisterSinger launches three of its bedrock one-hand designs with new, highly polished white dials, golden numerals and blue hour markers. The watches, MeisterSinger No. 01, MeisterSinger No. 03 and the Perigraph (with date indication) remain in their traditional 43mm stainless steel cases under domed sapphire crystals.
MeisterSinger’s watches focus on one-hand time displays. The relatively young German-based watchmaker offers a leisurely option for displaying time, producing a wide range of watches featuring one hand that rotates over combined hour and minute markings around the dial – essentially echoing dials on many pre-eighteenth-century clocks.
MeisterSinger’s top-selling models, the manual-wind No. 01 and its sister model, the automatic No. 03, are among the most basic within the watchmaker’s collection, with easy-to-read hour markers separated by clearly defined five-minute markers.
And while Meistersinger has added various displays and colors to its Perigraph model over the years, this edition simply shows the date via an exposed, rotating date ring.
MeisterSinger powers each model with a modified Sellita movement. On the No. 3 and the Perigraph, the automatic movement is visible through the watch’s sapphire caseback. The No. 01 model features a decorated, solid back.
MeisterSinger has added a wide range of calendar displays and several handsome moonphase models to its collections, but all retain the single-handed design found in the No 01 model.
“Luckily, I soon realized that the basic design elements of the № 01 need to be maintained in every model of the collection – no matter what complication it may have,” explains MeisterSinger founder Manfred Brassler.
Prices: 1,690 euros (No. 01, manual-wind), 1,990 euros (No. 03, automatic) and 2,190 euros (Perigraph, automatic).
