Many devotees of fine watchmaking appreciate ‘complications’. This term describes those functions on a watch that are additional to the proclamation of hours and minutes. Personally speaking, I find this area of horology fascinating. Chronographs, perpetual calendars, GMTs, tourbillons and minute repeaters are just some of the delights on offer that engage with both hearts and minds, albeit numerous indications can sometimes clutter a dial, overwhelm the senses and inhibit ease of read-off.

MeisterSinger, the luxury watch brand based in Münster, will forever be associated with single-handed timepieces. With one lone hand acting like a music conductor’s baton, it summons one voice to sing both the hours and minutes.
Recently, the German marque released a new model, the Primatic, and unusually for a MeisterSinger watch, it has a couple of backing singers contributing to the overall performance, namely a date display at 3 o’clock and a power-reserve indicator at the base of the dial. ... atic.html/

I like one handed watch dials just fine but don't confuse the issue with a power reserve dial.

Not very Bauhaus, more like bow-wow house. woof!

Other than that, nicely designed, built, all that stuff.

But if you need a reminder to wind your watch; perhaps you need a quartz watch.
