Single-hand classic with a new lookBASELWORLD 2016 Preview: The next generation of the No. 02 by MeisterSinger
MeisterSinger watches are elaborately thought through, right down to the finest details – again and again. Even if a certain model is well received and proves to be a success, the MeisterSinger team continues to work on improving it – in small, meticulous steps, as in the case of its single-hand classic No. 02 model.
The functional design of the No. 02 is reminiscent of measuring instruments from bygone days. The new design of this classic MeisterSinger single-hand wristwatch also draws its inspiration from this heritage and now features new, more pronounced index markers as well as striking numeral applications instead of imprinted digits. The No. 02 will now also feature dials in a wider range of colors. Alongside the classic ivory face, MeisterSinger will now be offering two new variations – in sapphire blue and a vibrant green. Both new dials will include a fine sunburst finish that shimmers in the changing light. White index markers, steel digits and a white hour hand provide these models with the necessary contrast. The applications and the hand of the ivory-colored version are blued.
The No. 02 is powered by a Swiss-made Unitas 6498 manual-wind movement, which can be viewed through a glass exhibition back affixed with screws. The stainless steel case is 43 millimeters in diameter and water resistant up to a pressure of 5 bar.
