Only launched the previous fall, the MeisterSinger Circularis has now been awarded a highly prized distinction: the iF Design Award, conferred by the International Forum Design.
Manfred Brassler, founder of MeisterSinger, fitted the finely finished movement with a uniquely shaped bridge, thereby creating the visual connection between high technical refinement and his own aesthetic ideals, which are apparent in the balanced design of the stainless steel case and the fine serif typeface that graces the dial. The center of the dial features a slightly concave recess, with twelve slender markings that hark back to the ancient forebears of modern chronometers – the old sundials.

The “jumping hour” principle was first used in wristwatches during the 1920s. However, its perfection is quite a technical challenge.
The Salthora by MeisterSinger should:
– Display the “jump” exactly on the hour
– Show the hour in the window without wobbling or shaking, but jump to the middle of the window with immediate precision
– Provide the power required for the jump without impairing the smoothness of the movement
For all these reasons, MeisterSinger had a module designed for the tried-and-tested ETA-2824-2 and Sellita SW 200-1 Swiss movement, which ensures the punctual, exact jump using painstakingly balanced mechanics. 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 Hence, power is not withdrawn suddenly from the mainspring barrel, but continually, which only influences the workings to a minimal degree.

Case size: 43 mm

Variants: white, ivory, sunburst sapphire blue, sunburst black
With the Adhaesio, the single-hand watch specialist MeisterSinger has developed a dual timer that adeptly follows its own aesthetic principles and the confident perception its clients have of time. For years now, MeisterSinger has continually developed timepieces with additional functions and always managed to find ways that embody the essence of its single-hand watches, both technically and in terms of design. The Adhaesio too is a typical MeisterSinger, in both concept and aesthetics.
An individual, needle-sharp hour hand points to the current time of day or night at the location of its wearer, accurate to within five minutes. Above the MeisterSinger logo, an arrow points to the second local time on a 24-hour ring, which slowly rotates in a clockwise direction. These two times are separated by a second ring, which shows the date and moves in the opposite direction.
