SINGER REIMAGINED - Singer Track1 Hong Kong Edition
Singer Track1 Hong Kong Edition revolutionary chronograph is presented in a lightweight black version with orange accents, encased in high performance ceramic aluminum crafted by electro-plasma oxidation.
Its super-black case combines exceptional scratch, wear and corrosion resistance with the lightness of its aluminum core. This cutting-edge material offers comfort, resistance and great aesthetics. The interplay between light and shadows enhances the sleek lines of the 43mm barrel-shaped case and its smooth-to-the-touch surface offers an exceptional tactile experience. Located on either side of the case for enhanced operations and ergonomics, the crown and pushers are fashioned out of grade 5 titanium. Their surface is treated with black DLC coating providing superior resistance and head-turning good looks. On the dial, adrenaline is set to full throttle with striking orange accents; the high contrast hands ensure optimal legibility while the tachymeter creates a clear separation between the peripheral time of day and the central elapsed time.
The AgenGraphe, the caliber powering the Singer Track1 Hong Kong Edition, completely redefines fundamental principles that have remained unchanged for decades. Here, the chronograph function takes centre-stage. The chronograph hours, minutes and seconds are coaxially mounted in the center of the dial, allowing the elapsed time to be read easily and clearly with just a glance.
The time of day is not forgotten but is instead presented in fascinating relief around the periphery of the dial. Developed with Agenhor, this revolutionary automatic column-wheel chronograph movement, is further enhanced by a novel clutch system, for a smoother operation of the chronograph. Its unique 3x60 display (60 seconds, 60 minutes, 60 hours) is exclusive to Singer Reimagined.
34.40mm in diameter, this innovative twin-barrel caliber beats at 3 Hz for a healthy power reserve of more than 60 hours. To enable the best view of the intricacies of movement, which is comprised of 477 parts, the winding rotor has been placed on the dial side. The Singer Track1 Hong Kong Edition is paired with a sporty technical textile strap combining lightness and strength. It is perforated with brushed grade 5 titanium screw-down rivets. To complement the sporty orange accents on the dial, the strap features stitching in a matching color. It is secured with a folding clasp whose opening spring takes the shape of the brand’s logo.
It is produced in a limited edition of 50 pieces.
Singer Reimagined was born from an encounter between Rob Dickinson, the founder of Singer Vehicle Design, and Marco Borraccino, a well-known Italian watch maker. Inspiration came from their shared passion for cars and watches and an undoubted love for an era, the ‘60s and 70’s, where analog mechanics and craftsmanship were king. Pair this with a team composed of the best industry experts and you will get a revolutionary, rule-breaking chronograph. Every detail counts and everything looks effortless and simple. Complexity is hidden and only the most expert eye can get it at a first sight.
With Singer’s work the more you scratch the surface, the more there is to decode.
