MeisterSinger offers simplified way of reading the time

First published: 23-12-2010

Watchmaker MeisterSinger has offered a timepiece which tells the time in an original format – by removing both the minute and second hands.

Called the MeisterSinger Singular, the watch instead functions via a sole hour hand and a series of graduations indicating five-minute increments.

This design feature seems to have worked, seeing as though the Watch Observer has praised the timepiece and gave it a score of 63 out of 100.

It has described the time-reading abilities as "truly different and soothing", with a direct-drive the only way for wearers to acknowledge the seconds and a sub-dial helping to read up to 30 minutes at a time.

Design choices for the Singular have also been praised, with a grey dial combining with a case finish which uses both a polished and brushed style for added elegance.

The news source noted: "With its Singular model, MeisterSinger gives us, through an original and elegant watch, a poetic way to measure time."

Another unique-looking watch which has been applauded by the Watch Observer recently is the Breguet Tradition 7027, which received a rating of 76 out of 100 for its combination of a gold and silver dial.
