Salthora Meta Jump-Hour / Meistersinger

Unlike the original Meistersinger watches, which have a single hour hand, the Salthora Meta is actually a jumping-hours watch, and it’s one of their larger watches as well, at 43 mm. On the wrist it doesn’t feel like it though — the generous expanse of dial, uncluttered display of the time, and generally austerely precise execution of the dial furniture and jumping hour display give it a sense of repose and general feel of just-right. It’s an automatic watch — the base movement, revealed with laudable candour by Meistersinger on their website as a Sellita SW 200-1 — is visible through a sapphire case back, and the sharpness of the hour hand gives the whole thing a sort of instrument-gauge quality that gives a satisfying sense of precision in telling time, despite the absence of a seconds hand — via HODINKEE
