MeisterSinger watches show the time with just one single hand. The same is also true of the new model, the MeisterSinger Neo Pointer Date. Although the watch comes with an additional hand, its only function is to display the date in the middle of the dial.
This form of display was a traditional one for wristwatches, as the date used to be indicated by a hand at the center of the dial long before the first date windows appeared. Moreover, the design, which is rare today, follows the MeisterSinger principle of not showing the current moment individually but in context, providing an overview of both the weekly and the monthly course of events, just like the open date rings on the Perigraph or the Pangaea Day Date.
The MeisterSinger Neo Pointer Date is a variation on this idea and follows the classical rule that the hand for indicating the longer periods of time, in this case the full days, is the shortest.
The date circle is somewhat recessed and located tightly around the center of the dial, clearly different from the minute scale and the hour numerals. Its typography and the small, needle-like hand are highly typical of MeisterSinger.
With its slender bezel and domed hardened acryl glass, the Neo is one of the most elegant models in the MeisterSinger collection. It is 36 millimeters in diameter and just as popular as the Neo Plus in its 40 mm case. For that reason, the Neo Pointer Date is also available in these two sizes, each in two versions, i.e., opaline white and sunburst blue.
Both versions house a Swiss automatic movement, the Sellita SW 200-1 Calibre. The screwed case-back comes with the fermata logo and serial number. Moreover, the watch is water-resistant up to 3 bar.
All models come with a finely meshed milanaise bracelet and are available from March/April 2020.
