MeisterSinger Salthora Meta X Transparent Limited Edition

Posted by

Most of the MeisterSinger watch models feature only one hand (mostly an hour hand) except the Salthora, which feature a minute hand instead. They are fitted with a distinguishing “jumping hour”, displayed in a round window at 12 o’clock, where a mechanism specially designed for MeisterSinger jumps to the next hour every 60 minutes.

Launched in 2017, the Salthora Meta X model from the Salthora collection is a diving watch. Featuring a robust case and unidirectional bezel, the Meta X version has a water resistance up to 200 meters. Now, MeisterSinger presents the Salthora Meta X transparent “jumping hour” edition, which is available as a set, together with a bracelet hand-made by Albanu of Monaco.

As its sophisticated technology is the key factor in the success of the Salthora, the new Salthora Meta X transparent limited edition displays not only the time, but also the module that enables the powerful jump to the next hour.

The open dial makes it possible to see exactly how the snail attached to the minute wheel stores the energy for exactly one hour before releasing it in the rapid, well-balanced movement of the actuating lever. Typical for MeisterSinger, the rotating hour circle is also open and the current hour is shown at the top in a frame. Its color scheme, consisting of polished steel surfaces, matt black, and the vivid red accents on the hand, the indices, and leather strap also match the dynamic character of the watch.

The Salthora Meta X transparent comes with a bracelet hand-made by Albanu of Monaco.

Since 1928 Albanu has woven bracelets from unusual materials, which are both striking and hardwearing. For MeisterSinger, Albanu created a two-colored bracelet made of marine cord, just like those used in sailing, with a stainless steel silver and black clasp. Water-resistant and robust, it highlights the strong character of the watch when worn on the arm.

The Edition Salthora Meta X transparent is limited to 150 pieces.
