The Bell Chimes for thee
MeisterSinger Bell Hora Ivory BH0913
The Red Dot Design Award winner Bell Hora model is reviving a practically forgotten complication – the “Sonnerie au passage”.
Precisely on the hour, the watch produces a discreet chime, alerting the wearer to the passing of time without having to look at the dial. Unlike the grand sonniere, the Bell Hora only strikes once and tells its wearer that a new hour has just begun, fully “en passant”, marking the passing of time in a poetic manner true of the MeisterSinger brand.
A pusher at 2 o'clock allows the activation or deactivation of the hourly chime by simply pulling out to silence. A black marking shows at a glance whether the watch is going to chime on the hour or remain silent.
Great emphasis was placed on a high recognition value. The needle-shaped hand, the double-digit numerals, and the fine line index structure make sure of that.
And that is perfectly true of the Bell Hora as well, the spiral-shaped geometry of the dial is a discrete nod to the spiralled coil of the chime.
Available in a striking blue sunburst dial or the classic soft Ivory.
