MeisterSinger N° 01 – 40 mm

Our Watch of the Week is the MeisterSinger N° 01 – 40 mm. The original MeisterSinger – but a new model nevertheless. With its 40-millimeter case diameter it is three millimeters smaller than the classic model in our collection. Only three millimeters? In the world of watch design, that makes a huge difference. Although wristwatches are now designed larger than they used to be, a watch 43 millimeters in diameter is still a very striking piece, not discreet, but a genuine eye-catcher. The size matches the N° 01 very well, as it emphasizes the practical, instrumental character of the model. However, the watch is far too big for some wrists.

And as some N° 01 enthusiasts had wished for a more elegant version of their favorite watch, we have now designed the 40-millimeter model to go alongside it.

Character cannot be simply scaled down

Developing this watch was not as easy as you might think. It is not enough to transfer all the characteristics of a successful model to a new, smaller design, as character cannot be simply scaled down. Each element needs to be re-balanced to suit the reduced area.

We are all the more pleased that the slim version has the same design qualities as the original – from the functional, easily legible typography under the domed sapphire glass to the engraved, sixfold screwed steel back. Moreover, the N° 01 – 40 mm version is powered by the same Swiss-made, hand-wound movement as the larger model: the Sellita SW 210.

Small things stand out when compared to the large.

Once you’ve worn it, you soon realize that this new wristwatch is far more than just a dress watch or a unisex understatement version of the original N° 01.

MeisterSinger has rediscovered the origins of its single-hand collection with a 40 mm version.

The first MeisterSinger watch reduced the measurement of time to the essentials – and the N° 01 – 40 mm version is rigorously continuing in the same tradition.
