Until now, the most expensive timepiece in the Meistersinger family has been the Circularis, which is retailing for around $5,000.
That price is being overtaken with a new Singularis from the German watchmaker, which goes on sale this month for $5,300.
The reason for the premium price in both cases is the use of Meistersigner’s automatic in house movement, the MSA01, which uses twin mainspring barrels to generate power for up to 120 hours and delivers that energy smoothly and consistently, helping to make the movement accurate to chronometer standards.
It is an elegant movement, on show through a crystal exhibition case back on underside of the watch.
Its oscillating weight has gills like a shark, and the barrels are held in place by symmetrical rounded bridges.
The dial side of the 43mm steel watch is classic Meistersinger with a sunburst blue dial, white hour markers and a minute track that makes it easy to tell the time as the single hand makes its 12 hour rotation.
