Two years prior, Singer Reimagined (the sister company of Singer Vehicle Design, maker of some remarkable Restomod 911s ) dispatched a great, cool-looking and precisely creative chronograph named “Track1”. After the Launch Edition , the brand chose to present city-based models, with the gold-cased Geneva Edition and the dark clay aluminum Hong-Kong Edition . Following this theme, here’s the brand’s most recent watch, the Singer Track1 London Edition, shown at the Phillips Perpetual shop in Mayfair.
Singer Reimagined is the possibility of two companions , Rob Dickinson (prime supporter of Singer Vehicle Design) and Marco Borraccino, originator. Both are fanatics of vintage vehicles, autos by and large and sports chronographs. The essential idea of Singer Vehicle Design was to rethink the exemplary 911 and to combine a vintage look with present day and race-like exhibitions. The thought behind Singer Reimagined is the equivalent. Take the work of art, much-loved1970s race chronograph and give it, in the engine, perhaps the most creative and performant developments of our time (the Agengraph).
As said, we’ve as of now seen three editions of the Singer Track1: the Launch Edition , the gold Geneva Edition and the dark Hong Kong Edition . This “city-related” idea is presently inferred with a fourth watch, the London model, which is another restricted edition of 50 pieces, and that will be in plain view at Phillips Perpetual, the store envisioned by Bacs & Russo.
Visually, the watch stays as before, with its titanium, barrel-formed case – suggestive of 1970s pilot’s watches. Not especially little (43mm breadth x 15mm tallness), the watch is shockingly comfortable on the wrist on account of the coordinated hauls and the bended by and large plan – which embraces the wrist. The case is equivalent to the Launch Edition , with a radially brushed holder, a cleaned bezel and “bullhead-like” pushers. The Singer Track1 London Edition is worn on a blue leather tie with collapsing clasp.
The show is the thing that made the Track1 interesting. Authors of Singer Reimagined needed to give most extreme perceivability to the chronograph, which means not with a 3-or 2-register engineering, with little sub-dials. Thus, the chronograph signs, which are set in the dial, are all midway and co-pivotally mounted with 3 hands showing passed times similarly as a standard watch shows the time, on a 12-hour premise. The hour and moment signs are definitely hopping (another specialized test). The watch isn’t just a chronograph, as it additionally shows standard hours and minutes, by the methods for two fringe circles, with a pointer at 6 o’clock to demonstrate the current time.
The principle development on this Singer Track1 London Edition concerns the dial. While the hours and minutes circles are as yet dark, with orange accents for the chronograph hands, the focal part is treated in dim blue, with a sunray brushed example and a round brushed moment track. Around it sits a metallic tachymeter scale – hustling chronograph obliges.
A restricted edition of 50 watches, the Singer Track1 London Edition is accessible for pre-request starting today. It will be in plain view at Phillips Perpetual, 30 Berkeley Square, Mayfair, London, from September fifth. It will be estimated at CHF 45,000 (excl. neighborhood duties and VAT). www.singerreimagined.com .
