Hands-on with the MeisterSinger Circularis

| No comment
The Circularis is a special timepiece for MeisterSinger. In fact, while maintaining the distinctive traits of the watches produced by the German watchmaker, the Circularis was the first watch of a new family of models housing a new in-house developed mechanical movement.

The new movement was presented at the end of 2014 in the hand-wound version MSH01, which was joined, at the beginning of 2016, by the automatic MSA01 equipped with a rotor winding mechanism which uses a circling tungsten weight to wind the two barrels.

Together with the Circularis Automatic (we wrote about it here), in 2016 MeisterSinger also introduced a revamped version of the hand wound version featuring a new dial design enhanced by details like the applied hour digits and the Super-LumiNova coating used for the single hand and the small metal-plated index markers.


The result is an eye-catching dial where the beautiful blue tones of the hand and the raised numerals change depending on how the light strikes the watch.



Reading the time is easy and even fun once you get accustomed to the concept of a single hand sweeping over the 12 hours divided by 144 markers, each representing 5 minutes.

Designed by MeisterSinger founder Manfred Brassler and developed in collaboration with Swiss partners, the MSH01 hand-wound movement is strongly characterised by its unique design of the main bridge.



Visible through the sapphire crystal case back, the movement beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a remarkable power reserve of over 5 days thanks to the twin in-series mainspring barrels.

Finishes are truly excellent and include circular polishing of the rhodium-plated bridge, mirror-polished bevels, blued screws and engravings in gold.


The 43 mm round case in polished stainless steel guarantees a nice wrist presence. The extra large crown is adorned with an embossed MeisterSinger logo - the musical notation for a pause.


The Circularis wears very comfortably on the wrist thanks to the curved lugs and the high quality double-folding clasp that can be matched to a wide range of straps or bracelets.


The deployant clasp features a fold-over that can be easily open to accept the pointed end of the strap making it very easy to adjust the strap securely and without any risk to damage it.


The high quality of the timepiece is evidenced by the care for details, the accurate finishing but also by the good sensations experienced while winding the watch or adjusting the time. In fact, the dial train with spring wheel enables the hour hand to rotate with extreme precision, with almost any backlash.

Together with the typical ivory tone, the Circularis is also available with a sunburst finish in blue, anthracite or green.

The retail price of the MeisterSinger Circularis is Euro 3,698. meistersinger.com
