MeisterSinger represents considerable authority in extraordinary, single-hand watches and its whole portfolio mirrors that – none have a moment or seconds hand (indeed, there’s this one ). The greater part of its cases have been treated steel so far, with a cool Black Line release of precious stone like carbon (DLC) covered cases giving an edgier, sportier look. Bronze has been an inexorably famous case material with brands like Bell & Ross , IWC and Montblanc hopping locally available, and MeisterSinger itself has fiddled with bronze with the restricted Perigraph Bronze . The German brand is now expanding on this with three new bronze editions of its best models – the No. 03, Perigraph and Metris. Bronze has for quite some time been supported for nautical and logical instruments because of its versatility and protection from erosion. It shapes a patina after some time, notwithstanding, making each piece novel with an antique(ish) quality as they age.
The No. 03 watches are important for MeisterSinger’s Classic line, having either no date or a roundabout date window at 6 o’clock (bronze release has the date). Bronze adds warmth to the sizeable 43mm case (water-impervious to 50 meters) and each of the three new models have a sunburst blue dial, “Old Radium” hand with a red tip and coordinating Arabic numerals. The No. 03 highlights a sapphire presentation caseback with an ETA 2824-2 or Sellita 200-1 programmed in plain view, both having a 38-hour power hold. It ought to be noted that the two developments are basically indistinguishable in plan. All bronze editions additionally come with a dull earthy colored calfskin tie with a bronze buckle.
The Perigraph watches are important for the Classic Plus line and highlight an uncovered date wheel that is set apart at 12 o’clock. Suggestive of instruments from a past period, the date wheel adds an outdated refinement and bronze supports that particular look of days gone by. The case is again sizeable at 43mm with 50 meters of water-obstruction, and a sapphire presentation window shows a similar ETA 2824-2 or Sellita 200-1 automatic.
The Metris watches , likewise a piece of the Classic Plus line, tone the case size down to 38mm, yet up the water-protection from 200 meters. Including an amplified date window at 6 o’clock, these are the more powerful, all around measured pieces for a functioning wearer. The multifaceted bronze case development combined with the sunburst blue dial make this a standout in either the office or back of a fishing boat. The bronze Metris utilizes a similar ETA or Selitta development as the other two, which is again shown through a sapphire display caseback.
All three bronze editions go at a bargain in April 2019 and cost will be affirmed later. They will go from around EUR 1,800 to EUR 2,100. More data can be found at www.meistersinger.com .
