MeisterSinger - 10 watch faces!

The tower clocks of the Middle Ages needed nothing more than a single hand: Visible from far away for the town’s citizens and the rural population, they showed how the day progressed, when it was time to rest, or when to finish work in the evenings. They helped people to plan their time. It was only modern times and the advent of industrialization that made it necessary to think in terms of increasingly short time periods. The clocks were gradually fitted with minute and second hands, which made people aware of the constant passing of valuable time. Meistersinger founder Manfred Brassler drew inspiration from single-handed clocks from the ages in creating the Meistersinger single hand watch, appreciating the indication of the time to the nearest five minutes, but not much more. The single hand encourages a sense of calm and relaxation – a true luxury in our quick modern world.

I just love the concept of Meistersinger watches. I like the philosophy that we actually don't need to see the exact time all the time. Single-handed watches is quite easy to see the time with a quick glance at the watch. And on the Meistersinger watches you can easily see the time you need to see. And the really long watch hand helps a lot.

So I decided to do quite a few Meistersinger watch faces. I collected them all into this post.

The markers on the watchfaces glows beautifully in the dark. Even with the variable brightness set very low. These watch faces are very good for the battery life too.

On this watchface i also added an automatic decrease of brightness after sunset. It decreases the brightness with 30%. And get to normal brightness again at sunrise.

Setting the brightness level between 5-7 works great in low light environments. This variable brightness can you use together with the automated too if you like. Both works simultaneously.

Tap below 6 to choose between 7 different brightness levels. I added that placement very low on the display to minimize the risk of adding smudge and dirt on the screen.

I draw and sketch the hands and assets in a vector-based software to get the sharpness I want, the rest I do completely in Watchmaker for Android and iOS.

My goal is to make watchfaces that looks good and realistic on a smartwatch. Therefore I don't do bezels because smartwatches already has bezels, and I don't do Lume because it's not necessary on a smartwatch. At the moment I don't do Chronographs either, but that can change in the future.

Enjoy this watchface for the Watchmaker app for both Android and iOS! All my watchfaces works with Android Wear and Tizen (Samsung Gear) watches.

And now let me see some photos of it on your wrist :)
