As the name suggests, the Vintago also provides a look back to the past because it embodies the design virtues of a rather elegant era. The purely functional typography and the flat glass domed over the unadorned dial are reminiscent of the austere design language of the 1960s. The finely brushed stainless steel case with its discreet 38-millimeter diameter is also typical of that decade. And, last but not least, the carefully designed crown also harks back to those bygone years.
But whereas MeisterSinger’s Neo looks at first glance like it’s been around since the 1950s, the Vintago’s design is also quite contemporary at the same time. Its curved single hand rotates around a multi-level dial, thereby adding further depth to its geometric appearance. The generous arched segment of the date display is cut out of the raised center. Both the form and the content are highly typical for MeisterSinger, as the wearer has an overview of five calendar days and a small dot marks the current date.
