MeisterSinger Neo Plus: a 40mm ‘big sister’
One hand to rule them all! MeisterSinger is the master of mechanical single-hand watches. One of its particularly slim, flat models is the 36mm Neo. It is also the company’s most retro-inspired watch. The new 40mm Neo Plus offers more one-handed retro per square millimetre.
With its thin bezel, functional typography and domed hardened acryl glass, both the neo and the Neo Plus have the appearance of a decidedly modern design from the 1950s. Looks can deceive because the watch is almost half a century younger.
New colours and details
The Neo Plus is available in five different colours, one of which is completely new: The existing dials in ivory and black as well as the fine sunburst green and blue models are now supplemented by a dial in opaline – a silvery, matt shimmering white. The black dial displays highlights that no Neo has ever had, as the MeisterSinger hour hand and the date disk have been designed in a bold red and the green model now sports a red 12-hour index.
The Neo Plus of course features a flat-domed glass made of hardened plastic and its screwed back with striking relief pattern makes the steel case water-resistant up to a pressure of three bar. Inside the case beats either an ETA 2824-2 or a Sellita SW 200-1 depending on what MeisterSinger can acquire in time to put the watches together. The Neo Plus will be available at retailer shops from May 2017.
