MeisterSinger single-hand watches have a unique approach to time display. While still performing their tasks with great precision, they suggest a more relaxed way to consider the passing of time.
It is not by chance that the logo that appears on their dials is a Fermata, the musical notation for a pause.
The latest creation - the Urban Day Date “Edition Today” - further emphasises the philosophy of the brand by featuring a fun and unique way of displaying the day of the week. In fact, in the arched aperture of the dial at 12 o’clock, in white lettering on a grass-green background, instead of the English days of the week from “MONDAY” to “SUNDAY”, this model displays the word for today in English (TODAY), German (HEUTE), French (AUJOURD’HUI), Dutch (VANDAAG), Spanish (HOY), Italian (OGGI), and Esperanto (HODIAU). Each day at midnight, the display moves to the next language thus showing a new "today".
Similar, in some way, to the Latin aphorism “Carpe diem” (English: Seize the day), the message wants to remind the wearer to make good use of the present moment.
The central single hand indicates the time: needle-sharp and red-tipped, this large hand sweeps over the 12 hours divided by 144 markers, each representing 5 minutes. The circular red date display at 6 o’clock shows the progression of the month.
Housed in the round 40 mm x 12 mm stainless steel case and visible through the transparent sapphire crystal, the customised Miyota 8285 automatic movement beats at the frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vibrations per hour) and offers a power reserve of 42 hours.
Equipped with a vintage leather strap and limited to 100 watches, the MeisterSinger Urban Day Date “Edition Today” has a price of Euro 1,100. meistersinger.com
