MeisterSinger No. 01 City Edition

MeisterSinger is a brand apart… For one thing, they are the only watchmaker to offer only watches with a specific display, based on the “single-hand” concept – in various sizes, in various styles, with or without additional features, but always with one hand only to indicate the time. This has become a hallmark for MeisterSinger. Today, of course with the Mono-Aiguille idea fully preserved, the brand is launching a refreshing concept, with no less than 45 different limited editions, the MeisterSinger No. 01 City Edition, each of them as a tribute to the cities where its retailers are based. ... ies-price/

I read somewhere that MeisterSinger, as a company, only produces about 10,000 watches a year. So, it almost knocked me on my ass when last Christmas time I saw one at a markdown store (Nordstrom Rack). Floored me to this day; you never know what you'll find gray.

As for these pieces, they sorta kinda look like stuff MS has already issued, save the casebacks - not that that's bad, mind you. MS makes some pretty nice stuff, and at pretty low price points. All I know is that the piece I handled was really solid, well made, and substantial given its styling. I didn't even mind the one-hand concept once I figured out how to read it.

Those funny Germans: Looking the company's website, I got a chuckle finding out where the "New York" edition is available: A jeweler in Naples, Florida. I have no idea which subway line runs there. :wink:
A tale of six Seikos (two Kinetics, two autos, two Solar): FIVE of them have disintegrated, three while being stored. Please, explain to me that whole "bang for the buck" thing again.
