For the second time, Leinfelder Uhren München is the main sponsor of the Brunnthal-Riedhausen tournament. This year, the watch manufacturer sponsored a prize for the winner of the Leinfelder Olympic Grand Prix Special: a Leinfelder Meridian Chronograph. In its design, this precious timepiece combines precision craftsmanship and a clear design language. A slightly domed, scratch-resistant sapphire glass protects the sunray-finished dial. The concentric finish applied to the circular surface lets the reflected sunlight wander in a circle as the watch moves on the wearer's wrist. The cross-section of the steel case enveloping the high-quality caliber is reminiscent of the column capitals of Antiquity. This extraordinary shape is a hallmark of all timepieces made by the Munich-based watch manufacture.
The long, curved push-pieces operating the stop-watch mechanism were first introduced in the 2010 Leinfelder Meridian Antigua. Easy to use even when wearing riding gloves, they double as protection for the newly-developed screw-down crown. Thanks to their unique large shape, the push-pieces feature a smooth action and a rich sound that delights the wearer's ears. The Leinfelder Uhren München team has developed their own unique pusher caps, with the pusher mechanism modified so as to fit the case despite the limited space available. The pusher cap axis needs to be set accurately to a hundredth of a millimeter, so as to ensure flawless pusher action.
