Thread: Meistersinger

  1. #1

    Meistersinger

    So, any other fans on board yet?

    Had mine a couple of years now, and it's the watch that gets the most comments by far. It doubles, for me, as a dress watch and a relaxed "time doesn't matter today" watch. I usually prefer no-date watches, but on this model the date is balanced and fills the dial nicely. Talking of balance, the leading 0 on the digits is a master stroke.

    These things are so well finished for the money, and the single handed method of telling the time is dead easy to master. It's actually more intuitive for kids to learn; there's just one scale. This has 5 minute markers, but it could easily have one minute markers. They can be as precise as anything else.

    Because the movement is known to not be fond of hand winding, it's the one watch I keep on a winder. It gets worn pretty infrequently. I like to keep it to change into if I'm out for dinner etc.

    Highly recommended. Enjoy the pictures:

    I have been looking very hard at one, but I am afraid it will be too big on my girly wrist.

    I found a nice Kemmner made one that is smaller in case size, but would take one of these in a minute if it would fit me.

    Great pictures of yours BTW.

    That's a beautiful piece, OS. I have been on the fence about Meistersinger for a long time, much like I've considered a 24 hour watch for years. Both interest me for their uniqueness, but I wonder if the novelty will wear off and they will not get much wear. I have to say that looking at your amazing pics makes me want to check some prices, which is never a good thing for the bank account...

    I went for the Neo. I wanted the 36mm size and I love the vintage feel with the domed crystal, curved dial and solid caseback:

    While I would have preferred the Neo to be a no date watch, it was not a deal breaker.

    Question

    Why is the mvmt sensitive to hand cranking? Can you manually wind it at all? What happens if you do?
    She said I was the apple of her eye so I told her she was the rutabaga of my duodenum.

    Thanks for sharing, all. This is a brand I have never had the opportunity to handle or see in person, but I have made a couple of offers online.....one will come my way eventually. I love the single handers!!

    It's petty well documented that ETA 2824 movements, and their clones, can wear badly from regular winding....


    Thanks for all the comments. I don't know why, but the official pictures on line always look flat and miss the watch's beauty.

    I was after a Meistersinger for a bit, then went with a Jorg Schauer custom ... before he took over Stowa
