Issues go quick for Singer Reimagined. The model was created simply two years in the past by Rob Dickinson, former singer for Catherine Wheel and founding father of Singer Automobile Design, and Marco Borraccino, an Italian watch designer and entrepreneur.

Only a few months after its presentation, their first watch, the Monitor 1 (a formidable chronograph) was awarded finest Chronograph on the GPHG 2018, the Oscars of Swiss watchmaking. The second opus within the collection has simply been offered, the brand new Singer Reimagined FlyTrack.

The Launch version of the Singer Reimagined Monitor 1.
Within the body of the 2019 Geneva Watch Week, the model now introduces the Singer Reimagined FlyTrack (as an idea watch), a creation based mostly on the identical formulation of making a timing operate that prioritizes legibility. The Singer FlyTrack captures the performance of a flyback chronograph, on demand, solely while you want it, in a user-friendly method.
FlyTrack’s central sweep-seconds hand could be zeroed and restarted instantly as you launch the pusher.

This permits for the consecutive measurement of brief intervals of time, for example on a race monitor. For enhanced legibility, the minutes and seconds are displayed centrally whereas the hours are indicated by way of a disc rotating across the dial. This operate will also be used as a zero-reset mechanism to regulate the watch with precision.
This unique idea could recall watches such because the Omega Chronostop, the Heuer Classic Regatta Timer or the Zenith Retrotimer – but, it’s totally different. It required the event of a model new motion (as soon as once more with Agenhor), during which the seconds hand could be disengaged and zeroed because of a heart-shaped cam. The Singer Reimagined FlyTrack hand-wound calibre operates at 21,600 vibrations per hour with a 52-hour energy reserve. It contains over 300 elements.
From a design perspective, the Singer Reimagined FlyTrack is a transparent descendant of the Monitor 1 mannequin. It makes use of the identical pilot-inspired, 43mm tonneau-shaped case, crafted from grade 5 titanium. It now encompasses a single push-piece at 2 o’clock, making a counterpoint to the crown built-in into the case band at four o’clock. The strap is both material or leather-based, with a screw-down rivet, and is secured to the wrist with a pin buckle.
