German watch manufacture Junghans welcomes two new limited edition timepieces to its Meister Chronoscope series. Two new special features of these models are the sophisticated grey dial and sapphire crystal front glass.
The two limited models of the Meister Chronoscope in sophisticated anthracite are stylish companions and masters of the moment. On the dial is a discreet reference to the feature of this special edition: Edition SC – Sapphire Crystal.
For the first time, the two models have a domed sapphire crystal as well as a leather strap with folding clasp – two elements that enhance the durability of the timepiece. The leather strap with folding clasp secures the watch perfectly to the wrist and also offers optimal wearing comfort.
The domed sapphire crystal front glass emphasises the elegance of the timepiece, as well as offering even greater scratch resistance and durability than the hard plexi-glass otherwise used. The steeply-domed glass is a key design factor in the fine appearance of the watches. For reasons of design, aesthetics and history, in recent years the Meister models have been produced solely with hard plexi-glass, the special coating of which delivers enhanced scratch resistance. To optimise the refraction of the sapphire crystal the glass has anti-reflection coating on both sides and is sealed with a hard coating.
Since the 1930s the Meister series has been characterised by an evenly designed dial, with balanced proportions and the best movements the company has to offer. In the 1950s the watch designers addressed the challenge of reducing the volumes of the watch and creating intricate timepieces, despite the relatively high movement.
The steeply domed glasses and dials in combination with thin-walled cases lent the watches a new, elegant and graceful look. The current models of the Meister range are homage to the creative philosophy of those years. Exciting proportions and dish-shaped totalisers underscore the elegantly-flowing lines of the models.
