MeisterSinger - Salthora Transparent

| No comment
In 2014 MeisterSinger introduced the Salthora, a timepiece which - differently from the typical single-hand watches produced by the German watchmaker - indicates the hour by means of a "jumping hour" display at 12 o'clock. The single hand remains but in this case it is used only for the minutes.

Every 60 minutes, the next hour digit jumps into the window at lightning speed, remaining clearly visible there for exactly one hour.

To accurately implement the “jumping hour” mechanism, MeisterSinger designed a specific module for the automatic movement which powers the watch. The tension required for the actuating lever of the hour disk is built up by a snail attached to the minute wheel in the course of 60 minutes. Hence, power is not withdrawn suddenly from the mainspring barrel, but continually, which only influences the workings to a minimal degree.


The new MeisterSinger Salthora Transparent offers a clear view into the module and the mechanics of the jumping hour. Through its transparent dial, the wearer can see the watch at work. The meticulously polished plate in the background add to the technical character of this particular Salthora model.


The ETA 2824-2 Swiss automatic movement or the identical Sellita SW200-1 with its newly developed “jumping hour” module is housed in a stainless steel 40 mm case.


Matched to a dark brown calfskin strap with a crocodile finish, the MeisterSinger Salthora Transparent is a limited edition of just 100 pieces with a retail price of Euro 2,598. meistersinger.net
