Defakto Meta

German watch brand Defakto marks its 10th anniversary by presenting the new Defakto Meta watch model.

Defakto´s first creation was a single-hand watch – the Eins. The new, in-house made single-hand watch Defakto Meta is a super minimal, night glowing watch. The Defakto Meta follows the design idea of the Defakto Transit which has just won the German Design Award 2020.

Due to its wide, rounded single-hand, the new Defakto Meta single-hand watch focuses on an even more intuitive time resolution than the original Eins. As the indexes represent only the hour and quarter-hour periods, on the minimalistic single-hand watch Defakto Meta, time is read rather in approximate intervals than specific seconds. The large single hand is used to read both the hour and approximate minute at the same time.

This model features a 40mm stainless steel case with sandblasted, PVD finish. Thanks to its unique construction, the Defakto Meta watch can be worn on either left or right hand. The watch is equipped with the ETA 2824-2 automatic movement, which can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback.

This model features a matt black dial. On the rear side of the case, the watch features limited edition engraving: 10 Jahre Defakto Uhren Manufaktur.
