The new Limited Urban Day Date “Edition Today” brings what could be the most sophisticated complication yet to the brand of almost twenty years – a day/date feature where the day is always Today. Wait, what?
MEISTERSINGER TODAY EDITION
This Limited Edition "Today" watch has a display with today. But these Todays are special as they’ll teach you how to say “today” in seven different languages (English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian and Esperanto). You heard that right, once you’ve established that it is indeed today, you can imagine what it’s like to be today in Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and more! Those other Todays won’t happen until later in the week, so you’ll have to enjoy your current today for now and anxiously wait for tomorrow’s today in a different language.
The 316L stainless steel case is 40mm in diameter and 13.25mm in height with an exhibition case-back secured by external screws. A domed sapphire crystal protects the single-hand dial that’s reminiscent of an air or water pressure gauge, and the slightly oversized crown is easy to manipulate. Water-resistance is rated at 50 metres. The black dial is classic MeisterSinger with white Arabic numerals in double digits (01, 02, 03, etc.), a circular date window at 6 o’clock in red and the Today window at 12 o’clock in green. The lone hour hand is white with a red tip. A brown leather strap with white stitching and a steel pin buckle comes standard.
Powering the watch is the affordable and always reliable Miyota 8285 automatic. It has 21 jewels, beats at 21,600vph (3Hz) with a 42-hour power reserve. Functions include a single hour, date and it’s fully equipped to display the days of the week.
