Meistersinger Pangaea 365 Limited Edition Watch Review

Meistersinger Pangaea 365 Limited Edition Watch Review

Founded by Manfred Brassler in 2001, Meistersinger has made single-handed watches its specialty. This idea was inspired by some of the original examples of timekeeping, including clock towers, townhouses, pocket watches and wall clocks that until the 18th century were fitted with just one hand. Now tapping into the aesthetics of the latter, the German watch manufacturer launches the Meistersinger Pangaea 365 Limited Edition which debuts an obvious vintage appearance.

Starting with it defining feature, the dial of the Meistersinger Pangaea 365 watch elects a retro-inspired design characterised by a warm ivory-coloured surface and fine serif typeface in black. As is tradition for Meistersinger watches, the single digit numerals are joined by an additional “0” for perfect balance (e.g 01, 02, 03) but in a charming twist, the numerals are placed at an angle or completely upside down, all facing the centre. Punctuating the numerals are subtle red and blue embellishments throughout the minutes track and on the lettering for “Pangaea 365” at 6 o’clock. The 24-hour scale is also colour coded.

A feature typical of the Meistersinger Pangaea series is an extra-long and needle-thin shaped hand at the centre which indicates the time. In the case of the Meistersinger Pangaea 365 Limited Edition, the hand is finished in black for contrast against the ivory display and adorned with an arrow-shaped tip. This makes referencing the exact position on the minutes scale even easier. The hand is also flanked by two counterweights. Finally, the dial presents the Meistersinger logo printed in black at 12 o’clock.

For the case of the Meistersinger Pangaea 365 watch, we’re treated to brightly polished stainless steel with a diameter of 40 millimetres and a height of 10.5 millimetres. The thin, round and unadorned bezel pairs with traditional curved lugs, a fluted winding crown at 3 o’clock and a sapphire crystal exhibition case back. Sapphire crystal also protects the front of the watch but delivers anti-reflective treatment for readability in all conditions. The back of the Meistersinger Pangaea 365 Limited Edition also showcases six screws to assist in a 50 metre water resistant rating. Completing the look is a two-piece dark brown leather strap with tone-on-tone stitching and a stainless steel pin buckle.

Presented through the exhibition case back of the Meistersinger Pangaea 365 watch is the Sellita SW200 automatic movement which has been cleverly modified to maintain the signature single-hand timekeeping. It still supports a frequency of 28,800vph and offers a power reserve of approximately 38 hours. The finishing of the movement is kept classic with striping on the custom-decorated oscillating rotor, perlage and blue-coloured screws.

The Meistersinger Pangaea 365 watch is limited to just 200 pieces worldwide, and as one of the German watch brand’s most affordable watches to date at just £1,890, we don’t expect it to be around for long.
