Hands-on Review: MeisterSinger Metris Bronze

As our readers know, we greatly appreciate the MeisterSinger timepieces because they offer excellent quality combined to a distinctive look. Without spending a fortune, you get robust and reliable wristwatches with great character.

This is especially true for the MeisterSinger Metris Bronze. If you like bronze, this model could be a worthy addition to your collection.


For our hands-on experience, we tested a model that had been previously worn for at least three months thus having started to develop the typical patina. This is a thin layer that variously forms on the surface of bronze as the consequence of an oxidization process. Patina development depends on how the watch is worn by its owner, making each piece somehow unique. While providing a covering that protects from corrosion and weathering, a natural patina is appreciated by watch enthusiasts and collectors because it accentuates the vintage appeal of the timepiece.



Like most models produced by the German watchmaker, the Metris is a single hand 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.


The Metris Bronze comes in a 38 mm case which offers excellent water resistance (up to 20 bar: 200 metres / 660 feet). We particularly liked its design with conical flanks and crown protector for enhanced sturdiness. The bronze crown is adorned with an embossed MeisterSinger logo - the musical notation for a pause.



Ideally sized for most wrists, the case is matched to a beautiful hand-sewn calfskin straps in dark brown with a bronze buckle. The solid case back is made of stainless steel and secured by six screws.



The thin bezel frames a domed sapphire glass which protects the dark blue dial where the Super-LumiNova coated indexes and needle-hand stand out very clearly for perfect legibility in any light conditions. The red accents add a nice touch to the dial while enhancing the sportiness of the model. The crystal is supplemented by a round, magnified date window at 6 o’clock.



This model is powered by the robust and reliable Swiss automatic ETA 2824-2 movement (or Sellita SW 2001-1) beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour) and offering a 38-hour power reserve.

The MeisterSinger Metris Bronze (ref. ME917BR) has a price of Euro 1,990 which makes this timepiece very appealing to anyone considering to buy a bronze model or simply looking for a sporty watch with character. meistersinger.com
