German watches have grown into their own league. Today we are going to talk about perfect example – new Meistersinger Circularis Old Radium. This model comes from famous brand with one-handed watches. Moreover, it is based on classic version with polished case, but now everything is different. We take a closer look in order to understand what was changed.

While all watchmakers resort to their old designs, German brand decided to go different way. First of all here we get classic Circularis model which can be considered as the main symbol for its brand. One look should be enough in order to understand that this is pure essence of that unusual one-hand design. Nevertheless, Meistersinger Circularis Old Radium comes with completely different styling.
First of all dial is finished in dark color. Add here hour digits in special paint and you will get unusual combo. Such color creates impression of aged luminous paint, and that changes overall perception of the watch. All this stuff is easy to read and still comes in clean layout. I am glad to see the same paint on manufacturer logo and date indicator. It would be strange to see plain white for the date. Small things make the big image, right? 🙂
In my opinion the main novelty here is the case finish. Yes, finally we can get matte brushed case. Such design should be more resistant to everyday use and works nicely with dark dial. I tried Circularis with original polished case and definitely won’t recommend it for everyday use if you care about your timepiece. Here we get completely different design and it should survive daily beatings. In other words, Meistersinger designers turned elegant gentleman into brave adventurer. I think this model would like nice with suit as well.
By the way, let’s not forget about impressive 120 hours power reserve! We still have MSA01 movement with nice rotor. Both can be seen through transparent rear cover.
Meistersinger Circularis Old Radium – When?
New model should be already available for order. In my opinion it might be the perfect choice for those who would like to get premium German watch for everyday use. Be it official suit or just shirt with sneakers, Old Radium would look nice on your wrist. I can say it is worth extra payment if you plan to wear it everywhere.
Now what about adding date window magnifier to such editions? 😉
