The German model MeisterSinger challenges the custom that point must be represented by two arms that transfer clockwise. This time, she proposes a brand new miraculous methodology, particularly for individuals who learn from proper to left. A brand new fascinating time-taking, made by an organization with an distinctive philosophy when it comes to time show. Meet the MeisterSinger Circularis Reverse.
One might safely say that MeisterSinger does not likely make issues straightforward. The place regular watch corporations give themselves the chance to play with each arms, this comparatively younger model has restricted its artistic spectrum to make use of solely a pointy white hand. He determined from the start – in 2001 – that MeisterSinger would turn into the "one-handed watch model" and he revered this precept with the German dedication.
The time … is reversed
However in fact, shock is a part of the packaging and the watchmakers of the model puzzled: how can we all the time do issues in a different way with one hand? The reply could appear a bit recalcitrant, however fairly logical on the similar time: reverse every little thing. That is how watchmakers have imagined the Circularis Reverse, with a hand that rotates counter-clockwise. And in doing so, the numbers on the dial had been reversed: 11, 10, 9, eight, and so forth. When you depend them clockwise, that’s to say.

Given this philosophy, a watch that shows time in the wrong way just isn’t such a wierd concept. There’s a second motive: the watch was launched on the Dubai Watch Week. And as Arabic is learn from proper to left, you will see that that this counter-clockwise course is definitely a really good gesture for the world of Arabic studying and language.
