Meistersinger has announced that it will be ceasing production of its two and three-handed watches to focus solely on the single-handed system of displaying the time that it is best known for.
The company admitted that the introduction of pieces with minute and second hands caused confusion.
Talking to WatchPro at BaselWorld 2014 Meistersinger’s head of marketing and public relations, Stefan Loges also said the German brand would be pushing forward with more sophisticated movements with higher priced models as displayed by the stunning new Paleograph column wheel monopusher chronograph launched at the show.
While a watch with four hands such as the Paleograph might seem to confuse things further it can be forgiven for the quality of decoration on the intricate and visually fascinating Unitas 6497-1 calibre displayed through a sapphire crystal caseback and the simplicity of its operation.
Meistersinger, which is still without a distributor in the UK following the collapse of Nuval, has been discussing potential partnerships during the show and is expected to make an announcement soon.
