MeisterSinger add a complication on the Primatic Series to make things simple: the power reserve indicator.
The brand-new Primatic boasts the perfect balance typical of MeisterSinger. The large needle hand shows the time as usual on the 5-minute scale. A smaller version of this hand is assigned to the fascinating little scale of the power reserve display. Like a vehicle fuel gauge, it shows how full the ‘tank’ is at any time. When the hand reaches the left side of the scale, it’s time to give the movement a little helping hand by turning the crown back and forth.
MeisterSinger collectors will find both familiar and new dial colours – versions with the ivory colour typical of MeisterSinger – and a black dial as a counterpart. Both watches feature cognac-coloured accents on the dial which are taken up in the stitching of the straps, creating a harmonious overall look.
The straps are made from vegan leather, which cannot be distinguished from animal leather in terms of quality and appearance. Completely different but no less impressive is the effect of the versions with medium blue sun-brushed and petrol green finish in combination with a striking vintage leather strap.
Similar to the majority of MeisterSinger watches, the Swiss movement can be seen performing its high-precision work through the glass exhibition back. It ensures that the movement of the wearer alone cause the rotor to wind the spring automatically in small steps by means of gear wheel transmission. In this way the Primatic’s SW270 can build up power reserves of up to 38 hours completely unnoticed.
