Celebrating its 160th anniversary in 2021, German watch manufacturer Junghans created a special edition Meister S Chronoscope watch.
The “Meister” distinction is traditionally reserved by Junghans for only the most exclusive of their watches. With the new Meister S Chronoscope Platin Edition 160, the company continues this tradition in a most impressive fashion. The case, pushers and screwed crown of the Meister S Chronoscope are produced from polished platinum PT950 – the most precious and durable of all noble metals.
Crafted from exquisite platinum and limited to just 12 unique pieces worldwide, the Meister S Chronoscope Platin Edition 160 comes fitted with a durable sapphire crystal.
The Meister S Chronoscope boasts a fascinating synergy of warm and cool hues. A progression through fine matt silver to a subtle grey emphasises the curvature of the dial. This is encapsulated by a dark outer ring delineating a distinct contour. Indices coated in a warm gold shade provide a striking contrast against the cool, silver-grey effect of the dial and anthracite coloured minute track. Hands and decorative seams elegantly embellish the diversity of colours on the watch.
The elegant face of the Meister S Chronoscope also exhibits sporty attributes: skeletonized hands provide the dynamic, while bowl-shaped totalisers typical of the Meister range are set into the dial.
An individual limitation number for each unique piece is printed on the hour counter of the watch’s stop function – ensuring that every one of the twelve timepieces is one of a kind. This method of displaying the limitation, assigned to a different hour marker on each watch, was unveiled by Junghans for the first time in 2008 and is copyright protected by the watch manufacturer.
Comprising a combination of high-quality Louisiana alligator leather and synthetic rubber, the strap fits snugly around the wrist of the wearer – thus reflecting the unique symbiosis of exclusivity and sportiness of the Meister S Chronoscope Platin Edition 160.
The leather is crafted from select pieces with lavish patterning and emphasises the stylish elegance of the watch in the grey hue coordinated with the dial. Synthetic rubber and a platinum clasp are also conducive to the durability required for sporting activities.
This slick combination of exclusivity and sportiness is also very distinct on the back of the watch: large letters on the inside of the strap depict the name of the model and allow constant ventilation.
An edition engraving, as well as the limitation number on the case back serves once again to validate the uniqueness of each individual unit.
