Although the brand produces various models with a few different complications, from calendar displays to power reserve indicators, all MeisterSinger watches are united by their single-hand designs that have become the Münster-based company’s signature aesthetic. A centrally mounted hand displaying both the hours and minutes creates a very clean and almost instrument-like look, and the new MeisterSinger Pangea 365 leans towards this design ethos, drawing inspiration from the early days of watchmaking to create a unique limited-edition. An edition watch with a classic overall appearance.
The case of the MeisterSinger Pangea 365 measures 40mm in diameter and is crafted from stainless steel with a glossy high-polished finish. With a rounded shape, thin bezel and traditionally proportioned lugs, the Pangea 365’s case presents a very classic and familiar overall profile and also features a fluted winding crown at 3 o’clock that provides access to its movement. A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the watch’s dial side, while another occupies the center of the watch’s exhibition-style caseback, which is attached by six screws and houses the self-winding mechanical movement inside. The push-pull crown and screw-on caseback work together to give the Pangea 365 50 meters of water resistance, while the perimeter of the caseback features engraving to designate the watch as a limited edition of 200 pieces.
Without a doubt, the MeisterSinger Pangea 365’s dial is its single most defining feature, and it offers a retro-inspired design with a clean and classic overall look. The warm ivory-colored surface is one of Mister Singer’s signature design features, and it serves as a backdrop to display a fine serif typeface in black, with small red and blue embellishments across the hour markers, minute track and “Pangaia 365”. Signature on lower part of dial. Sitting center stage is a long and slender needle-shaped hand in black, which complements the print on the dial and creates a strong contrast against the ivory-colored surface. In addition, Meister Singer’s single-hand approach to displaying the time allows the entire tip of the hand to expand on the Pangea 365, as it can clearly indicate its exact position against the scale printed on the edge of the dial. to reach every five minute marks on the dial scale.
Powering the MeisterSinger Pangea 365 is a Sellita SW200 automatic movement, modified to the brand’s signature single-hand configuration. As the movement is still the SW200 at its core, it runs at a frequency of 28,800vph and offers a power reserve of around 38 hours. Additionally, while the watch offers an unconventional appearance, the movement that powers it is a very familiar size and offers reliable performance and easy servicing. Completing MeisterSinger’s version of the Sellita SW200 found in the Pangea 365 is a custom-embellished rotor bearing the brand’s logo, while the watch itself is finished with a two-piece dark brown leather strap fitted with a stainless steel pin buckle.
Production of the MeisterSinger Pangea 365 will be limited to just 200 pieces worldwide, making it the perfect limited-edition watch in an industry that often produces limited edition models in the thousands or tens of thousands of examples. Plus, at the official retail price $2,099 Dollars, the Pangea 365 remains firmly on the more affordable side of Meister Singer’s current catalog, despite being a small-batch limited edition product. The Pangea 365 is available from official MeisterSinger retailers and from the company’s own website, but given its affordable price and limited numbers, it’s likely to be a model many fans of the brand want to add to their personal collections.
