MeisterSinger is well-known for its singular indication of time. Yet, this doesn’t mean indications are limited to time only, as the brand has shown it’s very capable of adding complexity and additional information. For example, the Salthora Meta X combines a jumping hour display with a central minute hand, and there is even a repeater mechanism that chimes on every full hour in the Bell Hora. The Perigraph, one of the brand’s most emblematic models with time and date indications, is often revisited with new materials and colours and returns in 2022 with the Perigraph Petrol and Bordeaux.
The Perigraph is a long-standing member of the MeisterSinger family and one that has seen its fair share of variation. The latest pair is housed in the familiar 43mm wide steel case with a brushed and polished finish. A thin bezel reveals as much of the dial as possible, and this is where the Perigraph stands out from other time-and-date watches.
The black base dial is enhanced with a minutes track and a recessed and fully visible date disc with a triangular pointer. New for this year is the use of petrol blue or Bordeaux red for these dial elements. The signature double-digit hour indices are printed in white, as well as the markers for the timing track on the outer perimeter and the brand’s logo and model designation. A single white needle-shaped hand revolves over the dial once every hour.
Power comes from the tried and tested Sellita SW 200-1, which certainly isn’t anything to be ashamed of. This runs at a rate of 28,800vph, uses 25 jewels and provides 38 hours of autonomy. It can be seen through the sapphire crystal caseback.
Both colour variations of the MeisterSinger Perigraph come on a hand-sewn black vegan leather strap with a steel pin buckle. They are available from mid-April and retail for EUR 1,890.
