Watch of the Month – Phanero
Small is beautiful: Our Watch of the Month September
The Phanero has the smallest case diameter of all MeisterSinger watches – but still stands out from the rest of the range. And slightly more in September, as it is our watch of the month.
Just a few years ago, 35 millimeters was still the typical diameter of a sporty men’s watch; that is until nearly every brand began making their cases bigger and therefore also changed our viewing habits. Today, a men’s watch less than 40 millimeters wide seems discreet at the least and we regard a 35-millimeter case as small. However, the Phanero makes sure it gets noticed on your wrist with its striking look, accentuated by the angular lugs that are reminiscent of timepieces from the 1930s in their technical practicality.
On the other hand, the trend in ladies’ watches is more towards larger diameters, but also elegant simplicity on the dial. A MeisterSinger, of course, has just the right nuances and looks just as good on a female wrist as it does on a man’s.
The unusual colors of the various Phanero designs are equally expressive. The shimmering mother-of-pearl dials emanate a touch of extravagance. All of them have the applied glossy hour numerals that seem to change color in the moving light, but are always easy to read. At a glance, a typical MeisterSinger.
The glass exhibition back provides a clear view of the Swiss hand-wound movement that powers the Phanero with outstanding precision. Its carefully applied ornamental cuts also remind us that it is a technical masterstroke to accommodate such a complex, reliable mechanism in a small steel case. Especially one that is only 35 millimeters in diameter.
