MeisterSinger Singulator – Time determinator
Up until the Sixties of the past century people had relied on regulators for public time measurement. These types of watches were equipped with movements not tolerating more than a single second deviation in a month. Inspired by such promising precision the MeisterSinger Singulator from the watch manufacture in Munster was to inherit both, the accuracy as well as the appearance of its ancestors: even the dial with a needle-sharp single hand and two sub dials accords to the original. In providing only one hand this watch model perfectly conforms to the company’s perception of hours and minutes as a unit. The striking success of the products of the company found in 1999 proves this philosophy to work out perfectly well in theory as in practice. However, the MeisterSinger Singulator provides additional displays for hours and seconds, which makes it a mechanic hand-wound watch which is indeed one of a kind. The incorporated ETA Caliber MS.0109 has been technically adjusted, basically by replacing the regular gear wheel by a spring wheel, in order to still increase the watch’s precision. These efforts were eventually rewarded by the Federal Republic of Germany with a Design award
The Singulator’s sub dials set at 6 and 12 o’clock do not only serve as captivating accents placed upon the domed sapphire glass dial but also make the ivory edition seem rather reminiscent of classic car controls and instruments. As a matter of course the model’s design includes MeisterSinger signature characteristics such as 144 indices, the needle-sharp single hand and zeros preceding each and every single digit number. However, the 43 mm case of stainless steel with its slender, slightly curved bezel cannot hold back this hand-wound watch’s true treasure: the 4-screwed exhibition back reveals a fascinating movement finely finished with Geneva stripes. Currently the watch is made available in three versions.
