Meistersinger recently introduced a conservatively sized 38 mm diameter watch model (targeting men and women) called the Metris. It’s available in a number of dial variations (blue, black, opaline silver, ivory), with a large array of strap choices.

The German-based watchmaker utilizes a Swiss made ETA 2824-2 modified to power the Metris’ single-handed operation, a specialty of the brand. This means that one hand displays the hours and minutes (and no seconds hand). Single-handed watches are very easy to read once you get used to them and quite refreshing in that sense.

This particular version, Ref. ME908 features a dark blue dial with printed turquoise-colored hour markers. A domed sapphire crystal protects the dial along with cyclops magnified date window at 6 o’clock.

The movement, although not particularly noteworthy for its finishing, is visible through the sapphire caseback which is secured by 6 screws.

Retail is approximately $1,750.
