MeisterSinger No 03 Sunburst Blue (DM908), 40mm
MeisterSinger’s versatile N° 03 collection combines the aesthetic principles of the modern single-hand watch with a highly, energy-efficient drive in the form of a Swiss automatic movement that draws its power from the activity of its wearer. As the watch is worn, the centrally mounted oscillating rotor spins and transmits its energy to the mainspring barrel, which can accumulate up to 38 hours of power reserve. Watching this fascinating mechanical process in action, under the sixfold screwed glass exhibition back of the watch, is one of the pleasures of owning an automatic watch.
Furthermore, thanks to its clean typography featuring a complete set of double-digit hour numerals, and the balance of the needle-shaped hour hand, which indicates the exact time down to five minutes on the circumferential minute scale, the No. 3 has received several awards for design excellence.
Extending this heritage, MeisterSinger developed a contemporary, slim version of the No. 3 to add to the existing collection: The N° 03 – 40 mm is not only 3 mm smaller in diameter, it is also more than 1mm flatter than the larger, 43mm N° 03 model. That may not sound like much, but it makes a big difference on the wrist – making the 40mm piece a completely different watch: more discreet, more elegant, and ideal for slimmer wrist sizes.
The blue sunburst dial is set off by white numerals and a white hand with hits of red set into the quarter-hour indices and popped into the date window. The use of colour is captivating without being garish, resulting in a balanced design well-suited to daily life.
