Watch of the Month – Perigraph Black Line

A matter of character

With the Black Line look, MeisterSinger has now also given its classic Perigraph model a completely new character. In its jet black case and teamed with a saddle leather strap, this multiple award-winning timepiece is simply crying out for an adventure – or at least a spring trip out in a classic car – a convertible, of course. That’s why we’ve chosen the Perigraph Black Line as our Watch of the Month for March.

A great many features of MeisterSinger watches have been inspired by measuring instruments and gauges of bygone years. The same is true for the Perigraph. Its date disk is not merely visible through a small window, but an open element on the dial, underlining the analog character of the display. However, with its black dial, luminous digits, and red trim, it looks less like an instrument for laboratory or home use and more like a solid piece of equipment. The diamond-hard coating of the case is scratch-proof and perhaps it’s the sandblasted matt look that reminds us of hunters and soldiers who don’t want to draw attention to themselves by reflecting any light while out in the field.

With its open date disk, the Perigraph has long since become a classic model in the MeisterSinger collection.

Hungry for adventure

The Perigraph is anything but a “tactical watch”, firstly because it doesn’t tell you the time right down to the exact minute. No MeisterSinger shows “13:47 hours”. And military units definitely don’t have a preference for mechanical watches with an exhibition back that allow the wearer to observe the carefully embellished Swiss automatic movement – creating an excellent contrast to the case back, which is also DLC-coated.

No, its coolness makes the Perigraph long for other experiences, like taking the first trip out in a convertible in the lingering cool temperatures of spring, or in the bar, jamming with the band.

The diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating makes the Perigraph Black Line particularly hardwearing and rugged.

Expressive

Its saddle leather strap makes it look great with a leather jacket or jeans, of course. But it also has the style to impress with a suit as a clever stylistic inconsistency, indicating that its owner can sometimes be anything but well behaved. And, when paired with a textile strap the same color as its luminous digits (or in matching red), this watch is likely to display completely different sides of its character.
