MeisterSinger’s city kid has learned a lot. The Urban Day Date has an easy-to-read day- and date display and an even more dynamic design.
One year ago, MeisterSinger presented a young, fresh interpretation of the single-hand watch. With its clear, concise appearance and striking numerals, the Urban fits in perfectly with the lifestyle of young city dwellers who confidently dispense with anything too complicated and don’t let themselves be rushed. Even in the tireless cities they don’t want to measure their time in seconds. But the Urban can do a lot more than display the time: In the new Day Date version, it displays the weekday at twelve o’clock and the current date at six o’clock in two different windows.
Actually, our house specialties include calendar displays on open rings, but the shapes of the Urban Day Date windows are also part of the MeisterSinger design code, as the circular date window has been created to match the case design and the semicircle for reading the weekday corresponds to the fermata logo. Above all, it creates a fascinating point of interest in between the upper hour markers. The Urban Day Date is the only MeisterSinger to display the typical twin hour digits only at 02, 04, 08, and 10 o’clock, which gives it a particularly dynamic look. And the powerful typography emphasizes the instrumental character of the watch just as much as the red tip of the single hour hand.
The Urban Day Date is available in four different dial designs; the day and date windows underscore the distinctive geometry with a matching contrasting color. The opaline silver and sand gray versions are fitted with black date disks, while in the black and blue versions they are a vibrant red.
The Urban Day Date is powered by a dependable automatic caliber, the Miyota 8265, the workings of which can be observed through the screwed glass exhibition back of the stainless steel case. Whenever the wearer moves, the rotor engraved with the MeisterSinger logo supplies the movement with fresh energy. The mainspring stores the power for 42 hours of precise running and for the next step of the date disks to the following calendar day at midnight. If the owner takes off the watch over a long weekend, the weekday and date can be adjusted quickly and easily via the crown.
The Urban Day Date will be available as of now and comes with a matching calf strap and a textile strap.
