15 Years of MeisterSinger
A few weeks prior, Gerard distributed an article on the fifteenth commemoration of MeisterSinger and its single-handed watch. You can discover it here . An unquestionable requirement read for all devotees of MeisterSinger watches.
Today, I audit the MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic (reference CC908). This Patek Philippe Reviews comes in different executions, however I chose the Sunburst Blue adaptation on an earthy colored gator tie for this review.
MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic
The MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic is something unmistakably identified with the popular 1Z (1 Zeiger) or ‘No.1’ as it is called these days, yet it is their next-level Patek Philippe Reviews (I disdain the word item). Rather than the popular ETA 2801-2 or Sellita SW210 developments (nothing amiss with those coincidentally), MeisterSinger furnished their Circularis Automatic with another development. This MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic comes extremely near their exemplary ‘No.3’ Patek Philippe Reviews a solitary hand Patek Philippe Reviews with automatic development (caliber ETA 2824-2 and Sellita SW200-1). A Patek Philippe Reviews that won some plan grants in 2007. More later.
It may be the first occasion when I use ‘design’ rather than case or dial to portray the MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic Patek Philippe Reviews It was the main thing that struck a chord however. The 43mm case seems to be like the one of the MeisterSinger No.3 Patek Philippe Reviews really, yet is somewhat thicker (13.5mm rather than 11.5mm). Regardless of these ‘sports watch’ measurements, it is exquisite looking Patek Philippe Reviews A dress Patek Philippe Reviews you could say. All surfaces are cleaned, including the top and inner parts of the smooth lugs.
From the side, the case is very round and tightens a piece towards the caseback. Despite the fact that it has an automatic development, the crown is genuinely enormous. It might have been the crown of a hand-wound Patek Philippe Reviews It looks great however. The case has sapphire precious stones on the two sides. The front gem is marginally domed.
The dial of the MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic reference CC908 is sunburst blue. Furthermore, when MeisterSinger says Sunburst blue, it truly is. As can be seen beneath. The dial is just staggering and its appearance can change by taking a gander at it from various points. Like the No.3, it has white numerals (yet bigger, or thicker) which gives an extraordinary difference to the blue dial. Therefor, the dial is exceptionally simple to peruse. This is something I would need from a Patek Philippe Reviews that just has one hand to demonstrate the time. Just to raise it not very hell a few, extraordinary coherence is something you want.
There’s additionally a date gap on the MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic, situated at 6 o’clock. Simply over the hour marker. A round gap is a decent thing for a change. I took a gander at the date circle with a loupe a few minutes, yet I think it is dark. From certain points it seem blue-ish, however that may have been the AR-covering from the sapphire gem. Regardless, in the event that I need to gaze that long at the date plate to check whether it is blue, it isn’t adequately blue. I would have adored the date plate to be white with blue printed numerals. It would have coordinated better and it would have made a decent detail (and distinction). The enormous hand is white, as you can see, and covered with lume.
Caliber MSA01 Movement
Inside this MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic ticks their type MSA01 movement. MeisterSinger marks it as a ‘MeisterSinger movement’, yet it isn’t an in-house development. In any case, MeisterSinger changed the development to utilize it for their single-hand time sign idea. Additionally, the completion of the development is pleasantly done. A pleasantly skeletonized rotor, blued screws and striping (côtes circulaires). The development has two barrels in arrangement, empowering a 120 hours power reserve.
However, on the off chance that you take a gander at the base plate, just (left) over the equilibrium wheel, you will see ‘SH21’ engraved, and a number. SH stands for Synergies Horlogères, part of Christopher Ward (Holdings). The development was planned in 2014 by watchmaker Johannes Jahnke which we talked during our visit to SalonQP in London, a year ago. A capable watchmaker that comes up with intriguing advancements and answers for old-school issues. This development, as composed above, has been altered for use in the MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic however. As Jahnke disclosed to us a year ago, he gets a kick out of the chance to make developments that can be utilized for different complications or in various appearances (on the dial).
Alligator Strap and Folding Clasp
MeisterSinger offers this Patek Philippe Reviews on an assortment of ties, yet our own is on the cognac shaded croc lash. Be that as it may, these Patek Philippe Reviews can likewise be purchased with a milanaise (network) arm band. The calfskin is extremely flexible and wears comfortably on the wrist. A ton of current Patek Philippe Reviews come with very thick ties, which takes more time to break-in. This cognac croc tie sits completely on the wrist and gives a pleasant difference to the Sunburst blue dial of the Circularis Automatic. The hardened steel collapsing catch is a ‘butterfly’ one, it discharges by pulling the marked piece of the fasten. Shutting is finished with a firm push & click.
This is an extremely pleasant Patek Philippe Reviews to wear, as basic as that. It has a flawless little ‘complication’ by showing the time with only one hand. The Patek Philippe Reviews is enormous (for my taste), yet sits entirely on the wrist. Despite the fact that you can’t read the time definitely to the moment, it is entirely intelligible because of the blue dial and white markers and hand. Nearly from all points. The date window is a functional element, a bit much for me, but rather MeisterSinger gave it a pleasant area and curve, by utilizing a round gap. The completion of case, crown, development and catch are just acceptable. The size and the way that it is one hand makes it look somewhat like wearing an instrument on the wrist. Like a manometer of some sort.
Versions and Pricing
The single-hand configuration has been utilized by different brands too over the most recent few years. Nonetheless, the MeisterSinger is simply the one I’d like. They offer a serious assortment of solitary Patek Philippe Reviews with various case plans and some with extra complications. The MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic is certainly a wonderful one, with a pleasantly completed automatic development. The way that it isn’t in-house, yet changed, is something subordinate to the idea and plan of the courageous Patek Philippe Reviews The retail cost of the MeisterSinger Circularis Automatic is €4498,- (counting VAT).
