Day and date – concentric and contrasting
MeisterSinger adds two strikingly colorful models to its Pangaea Day Date family.
MeisterSinger makes single-hand watches for people who don’t need to worry about the seconds, but just want to keep track of their time. The Pangaea Day Date is one of the most successful models MeisterSinger has ever created and the timepiece has already won a number of design awards. It displays the date and the weekday in typical MeisterSinger fashion, not in windows but by means of two open, perfectly balanced, rotating rings that have practically no joints or gaps. The current date is shown at 12 o’clock, without disturbing the symmetrical smoothness of the dial.
So far, the date disks of the Pangaea Day Date were designed in the same color as the surrounding dial and the display was structured via the height difference of the various elements.
Now, however, MeisterSinger is accentuating the radial geometry of the dial by using strong colors and a brushed steel case, giving the two new models a completely different character:
The first model features carefully selected dark hues next to each other. The center and the circle with the hour numerals are in steel blue with a sunburst design, while the outer edge is matte black, just like the day and date rings, providing a clear, but discreet contrast. White typography and red markings, also on the tip of the single hand, not only make it easier to read the time and the date, but also give the model its very own dynamic look.
The second version, however, has a more energetic character: The edge of the dial and the two day-date rings are finished in a matte sand gray, providing a striking contrast to the shimmering blue of the dial. Here, too, the functional MeisterSinger typography is designed in white combined with an instrument-like red trim. A leather strap in matching colors underscores the energetic character of the two new models. Fine cordovan straps are available in cognac and dark brown.
A Swiss movement keeps perfect time in the 40-mm stainless steel case and can be observed through the sixfold screwed glass exhibition back of the Pangaea Day Date, which is water-resistant up to 5 bar.
The new models will be available from May.
