As much as I like an extra hour’s sleep when the clocks go back at the end of October, I inevitably find at least one or two clocks or watches that I have forgotten to adjust.
However, if you happen to own the new Meister fein Chronoscope MEGA Solar from German watch and clock maker Junghans, this will no longer be a problem, as it automatically changes from summer to wintertime thanks to the radio-controlled solar movement created and manufactured in Schramberg, which means you will always have the correct time on you.
This cutting-edge radio-controlled solar movement guarantees reliable and precise timekeeping that synchronises with the time signal transmitter automatically. In addition, you will also never have to worry about changing the batteries again due to the solar energy of the sun and a perpetual calendar.
Not only is this new timepiece practical and technically advanced, but it also has a contemporary, classic and elegant design with the totalisers at 12 and 6 o’clock giving you of the stop second and minute as well as serving as a small seconds and date display.
The 39.5mm domed sapphire crystal and polished stainless steel, or warm PVD-coated rose gold case which is just 9.5mm thick, gives the watch a slender silhouette, making it practical for any occasion, and the curved translucent dial is easy to read with clean lines and distinct subdials.
The Meister fein Chronoscope MEGA Solar can also be adjusted for any time zone via the crown or by smartphone, making it a very practical timepiece for people who travel a lot.
For those who like to see the inner workings, the transparent case back reveals the radio-controlled solar movement.
The watch is fitted with leather straps in black and dark brown without seams and with a slight curve to continue the case geometry and perfectly round off the high wearing comfort of this elegant flat chronograph on the wrist.
The groundbreaking and technically advanced Meister fein Chronoscope MEGA Solar is available in either polished stainless steel priced at £1,390 or warm PVD-coated rose gold priced at £1,490. For more information, please visit: www.junghans.de.
