Also the name Circularis reminds of the antiquity. It comes from Latin and means circular or orbital. The fact that a watch is circular is nothing unusual, of course, and yet the circularity of the Meistersinger Circularis Automatic is actually quite striking. This is probably due to the unusual scale, which frames the outer edge with lines at intervals corresponding to the five-minute positions of the hour hand. Maybe the fact that the single hand interrupts the round dial only at one point and thus makes it stand out better has something to do with it. Another round design element is the date window instead of the six o'clock lettering, a special feature of the Circularis Automatic among the watches of the Circularis collection.
No, she does not sing
Even though the Meistersinger Circularis Automatic is a typical masterpiece of Meistersinger: The watch doesn't sing. This is also not the background of this extraordinary choice of name for a watch manufactory. Rather, the name Meistersinger should refer to the historical tradition from which the company draws the inspiration for its unusual luxury watches. The word refers to associations of bourgeois singers and poets from the 15th and 16th centuries, and therefore awakens in watch connoisseurs memories of watches from this period which, like the Meistersinger Circularis Automatic, had only one hand.
