|Famous for||Since 2014, all of its watches feature just a single hand|
A relative newcomer to the luxury watch market, MeisterSinger was started in 2001 by designer Manfred Brassler. The name is a reference to the music of Wagner and his famous opera, The Master Singers of Nuremberg, and the brand’s logo carries a fermata – the pause symbol of musical notation. Founder Brassler has said of his pieces, “The harmony reflected in a balanced composition, the subtle drama of a good piece and the ability of music to set time aside are all qualities inherent in a MeisterSinger watch.”
MeisterSinger watches are all designed in Germany, and then produced for the company by a small Swiss manufacturer. These individually numbered timepieces with their distinctive design – a simple watch face with an elegant single sweeping hand – are mostly automatic self-winding movements and have become an instant classic.
