German watch brand MeisterSinger manufactures mechanical single-hand watches. One of its particularly slim, flat models is the Neo. With its thin bezel, functional typography and domed plexi glass, it has the appearance of a decidedly modern design from the 50s. However, despite it being half a century younger, it has already become a design classic. As a large number of MeisterSinger customers wanted to see a larger version of the Neo, the model with the 36-millimeter diameter case has now been complemented by a 40- millimeter “big sister” model – the Neo Plus.
The Neo Plus remains true to the design principles of the original Neo: Its digits have been set in sober, sans serif Helvetica and the round date window matches the shape of the case, making it an essential graphic element of the watch with its contrasting date disk.
The Neo Plus is available in five different colors, one of which is completely new: The existing dials in ivory and black as well as the fine sunburst green and blue models are now supplemented by a dial in opaline, a silvery, matt shimmering white.
The black dial displays highlights that no Neo has ever had, as the MeisterSinger hour hand and the date disk have been designed in a bold red and the green model now sports a red 12-hour index.
The Neo Plus of course features a flat-domed glass made of hardened plastic and its screwed back with striking relief pattern makes the stainless steel case water-resistant up to a pressure of three bar. The wristwatch is powered by a Swiss automatic movement and comes with a suede strap that matches the color of the dial.
