The MeisterSinger USA Benjamin Franklin Limited Edition watch, of which only 50 pieces will be made, traces its origin to a diplomatic visit that Franklin made to England in 1770, in which the brilliant inventor described his vision of
“the most original clock to the English watchmaker James Ferguson. Franklin’s concept was a 24-hour clock — simpler in design than others of the time — whose movement would incorporate three wheels, two weights and one pendulum.
The stainless steel case has very contemporary dimensions (43 mm in diameter) and an exhibition caseback displaying the movement, a manual-wound Unitas 6498-1 with a 46-hour power reserve. The price of the watch is expected to be around $4,500 — via WatchTime
