Salthora Meta X

There are 4 products.

The Meistersinger Classic Plus Salthora Meta X is a surprising sight even among Meistersinger's single-hand watches. Instead of the denser scale between the usual hour positions, as is usual with Meistersinger watches, the dial shows almost the same scale as an ordinary watch with hour and minute hands. But instead of hours, the minutes are indicated at the usual positions, in two digits in Arabic numerals, and, like all Meistersinger masterpieces, the Meistersinger Classic Plus Salthora Meta X also has only one hand. However, this is a minute hand instead of the hour hand otherwise used by Meistersinger. As a result, this watch moves faster and is therefore more lively than other luxury watches from Meistersinger.

A little mystery

But how do you recognize the hour with the Meistersinger Classic Plus Salthora Meta X? For this purpose, where one would expect the 60 or 00 minute indication on such a minute scale, there is a round viewing window which at first glance reminds one of the date display usually found on ordinary watches at the three o'clock or six o'clock position. However, the number displayed in this window in the same colour and on the same background as the markings on the dial does not indicate the day but the hour.

Salthora Meta

According to the Meistersinger house custom, the name of the Meistersinger Classic Plus Salthora Meta X comes from Latin. Salthora is composed of the verb salto, I jump, and the noun hora, hour. So it can be translated as jumping hour. This of course refers to the unusual form of the hour display, where the number in the window jumps from one hour to the next and no hand gradually moves to an hour marker. The term meta is less clear. Since it stands alone and the tradition of Meistersinger always draws on Latin, it is probably not the Greek prefix but the old Roman meta, the turning bar that had to be driven around as tightly as possible during the chariot race in the Circus Maximus. This name was probably chosen as an indication of the speed of the hand of the Meistersinger Classic Plus Salthora Meta X.
