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 shocking light yellow gold case, Singer Reimagined currently divulges the third form of its noteworthy 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 completely in accordance with the vehicles Rob has been made as of now. Both offer a true love for 1960s and 1970s dashing chronographs, a motivation that can undoubtedly be felt when taking a gander at their “baby”, the Singer Track 1. However, advancement and execution were at focal point of the audience when contemplating mechanics. Much the same as the Singer 911 vehicles, the Track 1 is retro outside and super specialized inside – an astounding combination that we completely clarified in our top to bottom review 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 air. The main model, the dispatch edition , was intended to make the principal stun. It was specialized, cold-looking yet generally downplayed. Following this debut watch, Singer presented its first city-based model, the Geneva Edition, a watch that showed a considerably more vintage-situated plan, because of its novel light yellow gold case and standing out black dial from plated 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 composite), the new Hong Kong edition again advances 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 a cycle to deliver specialized components: aluminum-ceramization.
Ceramic-aluminum is created by electro-plasma oxidation. The surface layer of an exceptional, aviation particular aluminum composite is changed into ceramic. The consequence of this high-tech process is a super-black case combining excellent scratch, wear and consumption obstruction with the delicacy of its aluminum core.
The state of the instance of this new Singer Track 1 Hong Kong Edition is actually equivalent to different forms, which means a pilot-style case with coordinated drags (mid 1970s-motivated) measuring 43mm in breadth x 15mm in tallness – huge on paper however entirely comfortable on the wrist, considerably more with this new, lightweight edition. The crown and pushers are molded out of evaluation 5 titanium with black DLC-covering. Complementing this hustling look is a no-less lively lash in specialized texture, with orange stitchings.
The dial of this Singer Track 1 Hong Kong Edition likewise develops. It utilizes a similar format and plan as the Geneva edition (which means cleaner and more clear than the Launch Edition) yet with new tones. The tachymeter track, just as the focal hands and logo, are currently in brilliant orange. All the markers and engravings are left white, to offer better differentiation. Likewise with different editions, we locate a similar extraordinary and chronograph-centered presentation. The chronograph is at all important focal point, with its 3 signs showed by focal hands – the moment and hour hands being bouncing ones – while time is consigned as an optional capacity. Timing signs are shown by two fringe circles and the current time is appeared at 6 o’clock.
Under the cap is the equivalent, profoundly amazing development found on different editions of the Singer Track 1: the Calibre Singer 6361 or AgenGraphe. Created by Jean-Marc Wiederrecht (ace watchmaker and author of Agenhor), this development is a genuine mechanical banquet. It includes a novel design, with a section haggle inventive erosion grip – more insights regarding the development, the grasp and the hopping signs in this article . This development is programmed (the rotor is set dial-side) and its particulars are a 3Hz recurrence and a 60-hour power hold. Seen through the sapphire back, the AgenGraphe development is complex, profound, luxuriously improved and amazingly 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 extraordinary 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 20th to June 22nd. Value: CHF 44,500 (before taxes).
