MeisterSinger is a German luxury watch company that is renowned for its single hand watches. Manfred Brassler founded the brand in 2001, and since that time MeisterSinger has consistently debuted watches that effortlessly meld classic styling and tradition with exquisite technology. The design of MeisterSinger timepieces are stunning inside and out, and contain some of the most precise components in the watch industry.
Here are the ten finest MeisterSinger watches in history.
MeisterSinger Adhaesio – $3,575
Swiss and German watchmakers have competed for superiority in the industry for centuries, and the Adhaesio aims to feature the very best innovations from the two. It has a distinct German style with masterful Swiss craftsmanship and is the first single hand watch in the world to include a second time zone. How is it possible? The watch has open rings to accommodate not just a second time zone but the current date as well.
This timepiece has an automatic movement made of 21 jewels, and its power reserve is 42 hours. Scratch resistant, anti-glare sapphire glass covers the display, and the 43 mm stainless steel case has a four-screw exhibition back. The MeisterSinger Adhaesio is available in Black, White, Ivory, and Anthracite Blue. Each version features different colored faces, hands, and straps, but the same movement and engineering.
MeisterSinger Circularis – $5,995
Excellent engineering, beautiful aesthetics, and an outstanding design can all be found in the Circularis. The single hand timepiece has plenty of fashion versatility and is available in several color iterations including Sunburst Green, Sunburst Anthracite, Sunburst Blue, Ivory, and Sunburst Blue with a gold bezel. The appearance of this watch alone makes it worth its price tag, but precision and attention to detail are what sets its design apart.
A glucydur balance, twin in-series mainspring barrels, and eccentric precision timing are just the beginning and are what helped the Circularis win major awards, including the 2015 Red Dot Design Award, 2015 iF Design Award, and 2016 German Design Award.
