MeisterSinger created a stir when first introducing the Bell Hora three years ago thanks to its unusual sonnerie au passage chiming complication. Exactly on the hour, this timepiece produces a friendly chime, alerting the wearer to the passing of time without having to look at the dial. Now the German brand, famous for its single-hand watches, releases a limited edition with a painstakingly crafted white enamel dial. The historically inspired watch face is distinguished by a fine serif typeface, red and blue highlights, and the characteristic blued single hand.
The MS Bell automatic movement ticks inside the Edition Bell Hora Enamel, which is fitted with the chiming module developed by MeisterSinger. The MS Bell is based on the Swiss-made Sellita SW200 self-winding movement. Over a 60-minute period, it gathers the energy it requires to produce a precise, well-dosed strike against the sound fork located behind the dial. The pusher above the crown makes sure the bell does not toll for the happy owner if not desired, as the chime can be switched off by simply pulling the pusher out. A black marking shows whether the watch is going to remain silent for the time being.
The MeisterSinger Edition Bell Hora Enamel, is limited to 50 editions and comes in stainless steel with a diameter of 43mm. Pricing is marked at approximately $6,500 when converted to USD.
