No. There is no way to switch 1 to "regain" switch master status without the current switch master rebooting.
This is the most sensible way. It's not like HSRP or something. If you have a mechanism like what you are thinking of then it will cause more network instability (because the switch master has to reboot so the original switch master can take over). Now what if the original switch master has a problem with the IOS (and keeps crashing and rebooting) or a hardware failure. With your idea that the switch master will ALWAYS gain switch master status means that everytime this switch comes back online, whoever is the switch master has to relinquish control by rebooting. Think about it. It doesn't make any sense.
