Full of energy – the Black Line versions of MeisterSinger classics
MeisterSinger makes mechanical watches with one single hand – for people who
don’t want to combine two or three readings, but simply keep track of time. The
design principles of these timepieces are therefore similar to those of historical
instruments – with functional typography and double digits to indicate the hours.
However, these watches are quite different from one another in character. Some are
extremely elegant, others sporty – and the four Black Line watches show that
“instrumental” can also mean “very dramatic”.
Diamond-hard matt black
To achieve this effect, the cases of these four MeisterSinger classics are coated with
jet-black carbon and then sandblasted to provide a matt finish. The diamond-like
carbon (DLC) coating makes these watches particularly hardwearing and rugged.
The dials are also designed in matt jet black, accentuating the digits and markings in
an even more striking manner. During the day, their color seems similar to the
patinated radium displays of historic watches. In the dark, however, their superluminova
coating emanates a forceful glow. The length of the hand’s red segment
precisely matches the geometry of the dial, just like the red highlights of the indices,
which give the dials a rigorous structure. The contrast on the backs of the cases is
particularly strong, where the similarly blackened back forms a frame for the glass
exhibition window and the meticulously finished movements. The robust saddle
leather straps that come with this line of watches underscore their energetic
Subtlety is not a criterion here, but coolness counts.
Perigraph Black Line
With its open date disk, the Perigraph has long since become a classic model in the
MeisterSinger collection and its design has won a number of awards. In the Black
Line version, exactly that section of the hand which moves around the hour circle is
marked red. Small red indices give the date disk a striking visual contrast. The
screwed-in back of the stainless steel case is also coated in matt black DLC. The
Swiss automatic movement is visible through its window. The Perigraph Black Line is
combined with a dark brown saddle leather strap that completes the vintage style.
The Perigraph Black Line is available from April.
