Meistersinger watches

The Brand

Manfred Brassler founded Meistersinger in 2001. Brassler wanted to make the finest quality watches with a unique selling point which was that a watch only needs to do one thing: tell the time in the purest form. So who needs a second hand? Who needs a minute hand? Just an hour hand is required, that is all a watch needs. At first, you may think that is not possible. But by designing the dial in a particular way, you will see it works. Brassler did it; he made a watch with just one single hand which works and looks fantastic.

Watches or better said clocks with one hand are the bases of telling the time. The very first “time telling machine” was the sundial which had only one hand. The oldest sundial we know is about 3500 years old. The first mechanical clock was invented in 8th Century China. The first European mechanical clock dates from the 12th Century. These European clocks used to have one hand showing the time. It’s these clocks that gave Brassler his idea of making a watch with just a single hand.

When you decide to become part of the Meistersinger world, you will find that reading the time on a single handed watch is not difficult at all. You choose to let go of that exact minute, that exact second. That’s not so important in life. Time is relative. Time is there to be enjoyed by the right people, the right things and the right watch.


The first Meistersinger watches were quartz watches, but in the current collection, the quartz collection is just the first step into the world of Meistersinger. As the watches only have one single hand, the amount of time the manufacturer spends on detailing their watches is tremendous.

The dials are very accurate with a lot of small details. Sun-brushed dials, striped dials, raised indices. Everything to make a Meistersinger special. What many people do not know is that the brand Meistersinger is 100% German, but the watches are 100% Swiss made. The design department and sales department are located in Münster Germany, but the factory is located in Switzerland.

Our collection of Meistersinger is divided into two groups:

Single Hand Watches

Meistersinger in its purest form. Swiss made. One single hand. Mechanical automatic or Mechanical hand wind. These watches will strike you with their simplicity, but you will find that the factory has spent a lot of time on the details and the movements are very intricate. The Salthora watches, for example, are marvels of technology!

Single Hand watches with extra functions

Meistersinger has sought to add details to their minimalist watches such as the date, or a second-time-zone. They do this in their typical Meistersinger way, with lots of an eye for details. Excellent eye for details on the movement, case and dial.
