“Meister” is a translation from the German word for “Master” - who is a revered leader and artisan qualified to teach others. A Meister is known as a superior trend setter who inspires others and paves the path into the future. This timepiece series was created to push the boundaries of contemporary fashion without compromising traditional craftsmanship. Meister watches feature multi-pieced designs that blend premium materials like carbon fiber, stainless steel, and an assortment of rare leathers into a bold collection of functional timepieces.
Meister (MSTR) is an independently owned and operated company based out of Los Angeles, California that was founded in June 2009 by Kingson Tse & Ryan Pietersz. At the time, there was an absence of a designer watch brand that really fit the progressive streetwear fashion styles. MSTR was created to fulfill that void. Building a successful brand does not happen overnight. Although many unforeseen obstacles emerged, Kingson and Ryan pushed through with their dedication, integrity, and passion to find success.
Collectively, the MSTR team has been actively engaged in building a solid foundation for a brand that continues to gain new fans everyday from all over the globe. Since the launch of the company we have partnered up with some of the most iconic figures in sports, music, and pop culture to collaboratively design timepieces that are all made in collectible quantities. MSTR focuses on working with only the most recognized individuals in their respective fields to demonstrate what being a Meister entails. Our dedication to providing premium products, made with the utmost quality is prevalent in each watch we release and each partner we collaborate with.
InspirationAlthough headquartered in Southern California, MSTR’s designs reflect styles found from all around the world. Kingson and Ryan have been fortunate enough to travel to numerous global destinations that have inspired them to create unique timepieces that showcase the world’s taste in wrist fashion. MSTR also draws inspiration from automotive design, streetwear fashion trends, video games, basketball, and music.
