MeisterSinger has launched their new Perigraph Edition Planet Earth, a collaboration with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), with part of the proceeds going to the organisation.
Based on the Perigraph model, the Edition Planet Earth has the needle single hand for the time indication, with it sweeping over an hours/ minute track that has twelve hours divided by 144 markers, each representing 5 minutes, with dots marking the half hours.
The jet black dial also features a circular 360° open date disc in the form of a concentric ring rotates around a photo-realistic representation of the Earth, advancing each day at midnight, with the current date just below 12 o’clock by a small red arrow.
Its 43mm (11.5mm thick) stainless steel case is water-resistant up to 50m and fitted with a domed sapphire glass. Inside is the automatic Sellita SW400 movement, which beats at 18,800 VPH and has a power reserve of 38 hours. The rotor is decorated with the MeisterSinger logo, and the sapphire is decorated with partner WWF’s logo.
The Edition Planet Earth will come on a black strap with contrast stitching made of apple fibre (yes, apples again) and in an FSC-certified cardboard box, which is covered with FSC-certified paper on the inside as well as on the outside. The cover cushion has a cover made of recycled velour fabric.
The strap and the packaging will also be introduced for all MeisterSinger’s series watches. Vegan leather-look straps will be available from the MeisterSinger online, and the brand plans to switch to sustainable cases as standard for all of its watches within a year.
On sale from the end of October, the Edition Planet Earth will be limited to 500 pieces and is priced at EUR 1,990. For every watch sold, MeisterSinger and its business partners will waive an equal share of EUR 200, which will be donated to WWF as direct support.
Due to contractual agreements, the availability of the Edition Planet Earth will be limited to the following jurisdictions: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and the U.K.
