MeisterSinger Salthora

MeisterSinger-Salthora, saltation hours

Salthora evolves from the Italian term of “salto“ (English: saltation) and the Latin word of “hora” (English: hour). Thus taken together we end up talking about “saltating” that is jumping hours. The Salthora by the MeisterSinger manufacture from Munster does in particular provide the signature single hand to indicate minutes instead of hours. Therefore these are to be found in a circular window at 12 o’clock. This regular reinterpretation holds for a vivid variety of the traditional timepiece made by a manufacture, which still has a standing in single hand watch making ever since its foundation back in 1999. Perceiving time in its primary form is part of the company’s philosophy. The MeisterSinger Salthora follows up the motto as it gives an accurate account of time by setting a “saltation” (or jump) exactly on the hour. This is combined with a needle-thin minute hand to point out each of every 60 minutes. The circular window display has been specially constructed for the MeisterSinger Salthora model. The wearer will certainly not take long to realize that the reinterpretation of time is in all respects rewarding.

MeisterSinger Salthora Design

The 40 mm stainless steel case either houses Caliber 2824-2 by Swiss movement manufacturer ETA or Caliber SW 200-1 by Swiss movement manufacturer Sellita. Due to the minor diameter of the case as opposed to other collections of the manufacture the bezel might seem slightly broader. As is the rule for watchmakers from Munster a zero precedes each single-digit number. As indices are merely indicating minutes, the Salthora is mutually considered the most minimalistic model of the manufacture. But in fact the focus is thereby irrevocably set upon the single hand on the dial. Currently four versions of the watch are made available. Alternatively they can be combined with a broad choice of straps. Among these there are either leather straps of Croco print, Cordovan or Genuine alligator leather or bracelets of Milanaise technique.
