The Metris is undoubtedly the leisure watch in the MeisterSinger collection: robust, uncomplicated, waterproof and customizable to suit any outfit thanks to quick strap change. Furthermore, there’s nothing the one-hand principle is better suited to: who wants to count individual minutes let alone seconds in their free time? With its casual look, the Metris will soon be as indispensable as your favorite pair of jeans.

Further versions of the Metris are now also available: a bronze case and dark blue dial hint at nautical adventures. In the Black Line with a DLC-coated, black case and numerals in Old Radium it is reminiscent of a vintage on-board instrument. MeisterSinger watches can be elegant, striking, sporty and colorful – but never loud, flamboyant or provocative. This also applies to the Metris models. Until now.

What’s that then?

The colors of the Metris with a black case and a bright yellow dial contrast more strongly than any other MeisterSinger model. So where does the yellow dial come from? Here, too, founder and designer Manfred
Brassler was actually inspired by old instruments. And even though he brought the yellow Metris to Baselworld earlier this year as a spontaneous design idea, he designed it with the same care as all MeisterSinger watches. It features slight color progression on the dial and a matching seam on the black leather strap. At the fair the watch became a talking piece and an Instagram star surprisingly quickly. Someone said “mellow yellow” – and there was its nickname! But to start with it couldn’t be ordered, and neither could it be found in the catalog.

A little provocative

But now it is available, just as it was shown in Basel. Because “its mellow yellow” is far removed from everything instrumental and more reminiscent of leisure topics such as ripe fruit or a sunset. And because MeisterSinger is committed to classic trade fairs that have their own dynamism. And especially because with this watch you can do something that barely any pair of jeans can do: provoke a little.

The technical features of the Metris are undoubtedly sublime. The watch is powered by a Swiss automatic movement. The scratch-resistant stainless steel case has a diameter of 38 millimeters and is water-resistant to 20 bar; its powerful flank protects the screw-down crown. The yellow Metris is available as of now.

  • Model: Metris
  • Movement: ETA 2824-2 or SW 200-1
  • Diameter: 38 mm
  • Case: Stainless steel (DLC), caseback with six screws, water-resistant up to 20 bar, sapphire glass, magnified date

MeisterSinger watches indicate the peaceful flow of time; the rotation of the single hand is hardly perceptible with the naked eye, despite its high precision. The same is true for MeisterSinger’s first astronomical watch, the Lunascope, with its unusually large and unusually exact moon phase display, where the moon looks almost as realistic as it does in a planetarium. Above all, however, the movement of the Swiss automatic caliber is so skillfully constructed that it only requires a minor correction after 128 years and not – like many other moon phase watches – already after three years. The moon phase display of the Lunascope is an exact astronomical measuring instrument and at the same time so inspiring to look at that it has already won a number of prestigious design prizes such as the iF Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award.

Evenings to remember

The first two Lunascope variants have now been joined by a third, which depicts a glowing golden moon against a dark blue starry sky and is complemented by a dark blue dial with a shimmering sunburst finish. The new model also features superimposed hour numerals and a date window with golden trim. With its highly unusual representation of the moon, this Lunascope is definitely the most poetic, romantic watch in the series. Especially because it always displays the beautiful truth, as the moon can very well look as golden yellow as this when it appears just above the horizon. The best way to observe it is out in the countryside, on a sandy beach, or when looking at a broad view of a mountain range – in those special moments when nobody counts the seconds and which we love to remember all the more.

The Swiss automatic caliber with the high-precision moon phase module purrs in its stainless steel case with a slender 40-millimeter diameter and is easy to observe through the screwed, glass exhibition back. The Lunascope with the golden moon comes with a cognac-colored calfskin watchstrap and is on sale right now.

  • Model: Lunascope
  • Movement: ETA 2836 with MS-module, automatic
  • Diameter: 40 mm
  • Case: Stainless steel, 6-screwed exhibition back, water re-sistance 5 bar, sapphire crystal
  • Power reserve: 38 hours
  • Variants: Sunburst Blue

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.

Three variants

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.

  • Model: Pangaea Date
  • Movement: Sellita SW 200-1, Date
  • Diameter: 40 mm
  • Case: Stainless steel, Exhibition back with six screws, water-resistant up to 5 bar, sapphire glass
  • Power reserve: 38 hours
  • Variants: Sunburst Blue, Opaline-Silver, Ivory

The single-hand watch like your favorite pair of jeans is now available as a Black Line
model

A year ago, MeisterSinger gave four of its classic watches a new finish and therefore a completely new character. The Black Line, with its black case, black dial, and red highlights accentuates the instrument-like heritage of single-hand watches made in Münster, Germany. Despite their differences, however, these models have one thing in common – their coolness.

Rugged exterior

These characteristics make the Metris the ideal choice as the next member of the Black Line. In its unusual stainless-steel case, it doesn’t only look elegant, but also particularly rugged and features a screwed crown as well as sturdily protected sides, which means the Metris can be worn in any situation without a worry. Its scratch-resistant, matt sandblasted DLC coating makes the case of the Metris Black Line look far more striking and its lugs have a predatory look, similar to the ears of a wild animal.

The jet black dial has a structure that swallows every reflection, additionally accentuating the red highlights in the minute scale and on the tip of the hour hand, making the hour numerals even more striking: During the day because their “Old Radium” hue gives the impression of dignified ageing and at night because the luminous “superluminova” coating lends them a strong afterglow.

Swiss core

And that is highly appropriate, as Metris Black Line owners don’t simply go home at 5 p.m. or because it’s dark. This watch is much better suited to a visit to a favorite bar or a late swim in the lake.

The Metris’ 38-millimeter stainless steel case is designed to protect its Swiss automatic movement from pressures of up to 20 bar. The Black Line comes with its typical cognaccolored saddle leather strap, emphasizing its unusual character, and its seams highlight the vintage shade of the luminous numerals.

The Metris Black Line is on sale now.

  • Model: Metris
  • Movement: ETA 2824-2 or Sellita SW 220-1
  • Diameter: 38 mm
  • Case: Stainless steel, sixfold screwed back, water-resistant up to 20 bar, sapphire glass
  • Power reserve: 38 hours

MeisterSinger highly successful at Inhorgenta and Baselworld, next stop:
the Dubai Watch Week 2019

MeisterSinger, the Münster-based maker of single-hand watches, enjoyed outstanding success at both the Inhorgenta in Munich and the Baselworld in Switzerland. Managing Partner and Sales Director John van Steen believes in the great intrinsic value of the two trade show venues: “The personal contact with customers and jewelers from all over the world is an indispensable factor and worth its weight in gold. We earn 75 percent of our revenue with international customers and a key part of the business is either transacted in Munich and Basel or prepared when discussing our watches.” The rich mixture of product innovations, whether the three bronze line models, the sixties look of the Vintago, or the Urban Day Date entry-level model, has convinced distributors and jewelers alike. “Our sales at the two events are up by a further eight percent year-on-year,” says Manfred Brassler, Managing Partner and founder of MeisterSinger. The renewed success has given MeisterSinger fresh impetus as it takes up the invitation to go to Dubai to showcase its collection at the Dubai Watch Week, which will be held from November 20 to 24.

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.

Radial geometry

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.

  • Model: Pangaea Day Date
  • Movement: ETA 2836-2 or Sellita SW 220-1
  • Diameter: 40 mm
  • Case: Stainless steel, Exhibition back with six screws, water resistance up to 5 bar, sapphire crystal
  • Variants: Ivory, Sunburst Blue, Blue Black, Blue Sand-Gray
  • Power reserve: 38 hours

The blue Lunascope wins the iF Design Award
MeisterSinger can add a further major design award to the list of those it has already received for its single-hand watches, as the blue version of the Lunascope moon phase watch has won the prestigious iF Design Award.

High-precision aesthetics

The Lunascope is the first MeisterSinger watch to be designed with an astronomical complication. Its construction and design are in keeping with the company’s high standards in terms of the technology and aesthetics of its products. The watch thus became a talking piece at the Baselworld in 2018 not only because of its unusually large moon phase display. It is also remarkable for the outstanding precision with which the realistically depicted moon moves across the dial, as the display only needs to be adjusted by one day once every 128 years.

Modern night sky

The blue version of the Lunascope turns the entire dial into a night sky, creating a romantic scene, which,
however, combines well with the typical, functional MeisterSinger stylistic elements, such as the needlesharp, instrument-like hand and the sans serif, doubledigit hour numerals. From 6,400 products submitted from 54 countries, the expert jury of the iF Design Award singled out the Lunascope to be honored for its excellent modern design. After the success of the Circularis in 2015 and the Adhaesio in 2016, the fact that the Lunascope has now also received this award, which is rich in tradition and highly regarded in the industry, is priceless acknowledgement of MeisterSinger’s creative work.

  • Model: Lunascope
  • Movement: ETA 2836 with MS module, automatic
  • Diameter: 40 mm
  • Case: Stainless steel, sixfold screwed glass exhibition back, water-resistant up to 5 bar, sapphire glass
  • Variants: Opaline silver, blue
  • Power reserve: 38 hours
