Few brands are famous for a particular style across the board, but German luxury watchmaker MeisterSinger is well known for its single-hand watches. Founded in 2001 by Manfred Brassler in Münster, Germany, the company's single-hand dials are a nod to clock towers from the Middle Ages (such as Westminster Abbey). Of course, the watches are anything but archaic and many sport advanced complications like jumping hours, dual time zones, oversized moon phase, and power reserve indicators. Watches often resemble single-hand gauges (pressure gauges and altimeters) and all dial numerals start with a zero (01, 02, 03, etc.). This isn’t the first or only brand with single-hand watches, but its commitment to the style outshines the competition. MeisterSinger watches use Swiss movements and prices are accessible to mid-range.
