MeisterSinger has revised this elegant, classic model
MeisterSinger makes watches for people who know just what is important to them. All they need is a long, single hand that displays both the hours and the minutes; seconds are not important to them, although the current date is quite another matter. That’s why MeisterSinger has revised one of its most successful models, the
Pangaea, and equipped it with a date display that reflects the design concept of the watch. The MeisterSinger design language is based on historical instruments with a rigorously objective look, but also on the faces of early pocket watches, especially those that needed nothing more than a single, slender hand. The Pangaea, the most elegant model among the MeisterSinger classics, is also part of this tradition. Apart from its slim 40-mm case, the finely curved serif typeface contributes towards its visual lightness.
Highly essential: every detail
The Pangaea Date, which was presented for the first time at the Baselworld, not only keeps perfect time, it also features a date display, which has been carefully integrated in the geometry of the dial. An extended marker at 6 o’clock points to the circular date window, which is typical for MeisterSinger. Its opening is finely metallized and, of course, the typography of the digits in the date window matches that used for the hour numerals.
The Pangaea Date comes in three variants, with the dial in ivory, opaline silver, or blue. The numerals, the hand, and the rim of the date window are all designed to match them. The hand on the two lighter-colored models is blue with black lettering and a date window framed in silver. The blue variant with the sunburst dial is fitted with a white hand, whereas the hour numerals and the rim of the date window are finished in fine matching gold. The watch is powered by a Swiss automatic movement. The glass back of the Pangaea provides a clear view of how the rotor, which is engraved with a golden MeisterSinger logo, supplies the movement with power. The exhibition back is fastened with six screws and the stainless steel case of the Pangaea is water-resistant up to 5 bar.
All three Pangaea models come with a matching calfskin watchstrap with an embossed crocodile pattern and are on sale now.
