MeisterSinger’s transparent “jumping hour” is available as a set, together with a bracelet hand-made by Albanu of Monaco
MeisterSinger watches show us what is really important. That’s why they only need one hand; mostly an hour hand, except the Salthora models, which feature a minute hand instead. They are fitted with a distinguishing “jumping hour”, displayed in a round window at 12 o’clock, where a mechanism specially designed for MeisterSinger jumps to the next hour every 60 minutes – in a flash and with great precision.
This feat requires a considerable amount of exactly dosed power input, which also makes the Salthora the ideal basis for the first “jumping hour” in the form of a diving watch, the Salthora Meta X: water-resistant in a robust case, equipped with a rotatable bezel and meanwhile winner of the prestigious Red Dot Award for outstanding product design.
Technology you can see
As its sophisticated technology is the key factor in the success of the Salthora, the new Salthora Meta X transparent limited edition displays not only the time, but also the module that enables the powerful jump to the next hour.
It is not fitted with a conventional dial, making it possible to see exactly how the snail attached to the minute wheel stores the energy for exactly one hour before releasing it in the rapid, well-balanced movement of the actuating lever. Typical for MeisterSinger, the rotating hour circle is also open and the current hour is shown at the top in a frame.
Its color scheme, consisting of polished steel surfaces, matt black, and the vivid red accents on the hand, the indices, and leather strap also match the dynamic character of the watch.
Albanu: Craftsmanship made in Monaco
MeisterSinger also appreciates the fine work of other companies who have perfected the art of creating exceptional products in new variations and types. That’s why the Salthora Meta X transparent comes with a bracelet hand-made by Albanu of Monaco. Since 1928 Albanu has woven bracelets from unusual materials, which are both striking and hardwearing. For MeisterSinger, Albanu created a two-colored bracelet made of marine cord, just like those used in sailing, with a stainless steel silver and black clasp. Water-resistant and robust, it highlights the strong character of the watch when worn on the arm.
The Edition Salthora Meta X transparent is limited to 150 pieces.
