Following the presentation of the Launch Edition in June 2017 , a specialized titanium variant, and the Geneva Edition in January 2018 , a vintage-oriented version with a staggering light yellow gold case, Singer Reimagined currently divulges the third form of its great chronograph. Named the Track 1 Hong Kong Edition, this third emphasis is a sportier interpretation of the idea, with its black Ceramic-Aluminum case and striking orange accents.
Singer Reimagined was conceived from the experience between Rob Dickinson, Founder and Creative Director of Singer Vehicle Design, and Italian watch originator Marco Borraccino. The company was made to reconsider high-watchmaking, and particularly the chronograph, a watch that felt totally in accordance with the vehicles Rob has been made as of now. Both offer a true love for 1960s and 1970s hustling chronographs, a motivation that can without much of a stretch be felt when looking at their “baby”, the Singer Track 1. However, innovation and execution were at all important focal point when thinking about mechanics. Much the same as the Singer 911 vehicles, the Track 1 is retro outside and super specialized inside – an astonishing combination that we completely clarified in our top to bottom survey of the Geneva Edition here .
The Launch edition of the Singer Reimagined Track 1 The Geneva edition of the Singer Reimagined Track 1
As Rob and Marco disclosed to us in this video meet , the idea is to present a few restricted editions of the Track 1, all dependent on a city and its climate. The main model, the dispatch edition , was intended to make the principal stun. It was specialized, cold-looking yet moderately downplayed. Following this debut watch, Singer presented its first city-based model, the Geneva Edition, a watch that showed a substantially more vintage-situated plan, because of its special light yellow gold case and standing out black dial from overlaid plan. For the third watch, the Singer Track 1 Hong Kong Edition, the brand gets sportier, bolder and considerably more modern.
While the material utilized on the Geneva edition was at that point a long way from common (a particular 18k pale gold combination), the new Hong Kong edition again enhances with its case. It summons hustling and execution with a lightweight, full-black adaptation. The case is here made of Ceramic-Aluminum. Together with its specialized accomplice DelWest, Singer Reimagined refined an interaction to create specialized components: aluminum-ceramization.
Ceramic-aluminum is made by electro-plasma oxidation. The surface layer of an exceptional, aviation detail aluminum compound is changed into ceramic. The aftereffect of this high-tech process is a super-black case combining extraordinary scratch, wear and consumption obstruction with the daintiness of its aluminum core.
The state of the instance of this new Singer Track 1 Hong Kong Edition is actually equivalent to the other adaptations, which means a pilot-style case with incorporated carries (mid 1970s-roused) measuring 43mm in measurement x 15mm in stature – huge on paper however entirely comfortable on the wrist, much more with this new, lightweight edition. The crown and pushers are formed out of evaluation 5 titanium with black DLC-covering. Complementing this hustling look is a no-less energetic lash in specialized texture, with orange stitchings.
The dial of this Singer Track 1 Hong Kong Edition likewise advances. It utilizes a similar format and plan as the Geneva edition (which means cleaner and more neat than the Launch Edition) yet with new tones. The tachymeter track, just as the focal hands and logo, are currently in splendid orange. All the markers and engravings are left white, to offer better differentiation. Similarly as with other editions, we locate a similar remarkable and chronograph-centered showcase. The chronograph is at all important focal point, with its 3 signs showed by focal hands – the moment and hour hands being hopping ones – while time is consigned as an optional capacity. Timing signs are shown by two fringe plates and the current time is appeared at 6 o’clock.
Under the hat is the equivalent, exceptionally great development found on other editions of the Singer Track 1: the Calibre Singer 6361 or AgenGraphe. Created by Jean-Marc Wiederrecht (ace watchmaker and organizer of Agenhor), this development is a genuine mechanical banquet. It includes a remarkable design, with a segment haggle imaginative grating grip – more insights concerning the development, the grasp and the hopping signs in this article . This development is programmed (the rotor is set dial-side) and its details are a 3Hz recurrence and a 60-hour power hold. Seen through the sapphire back, the AgenGraphe development is complex, profound, lavishly finished and astonishingly technical.
This new Singer Track 1 Hong Kong Edition may very well include a difference in tones and materials, however it brings about a completely unique watch with various motivations. It feels significantly more current and specialized and is certainly the sportiest of the three editions. It will be a 50-piece restricted edition, accessible from Singer Reimagined or from Hong Kong retailer The Lavish Attic – the watch and the Singer group will be there from June twentieth to June 22nd. Value: CHF 44,500 (before taxes).
