The Track1 is a radical re-engineering of the chronograph.
Singer Reimagined was born from an encounter between Rob Dickinson, the founder of Singer Vehicle Design, and Marco Borraccino, a well-known watch designer.
The connection over design and engineering was instant. During almost a year, Rob in California and Marco in Geneva riffed on cars, music, watches and a shared fascination with mechanical icons, particularly the iconic sport-classic chronographs of the late 1960s and ‘70s. From this discussion an idea was born; to create mighty timepieces that would reimagine high-watchmaking.
It was at this point that a decisive encounter with a third pillar of the collaboration took place. Marco shared his idea for a unique chronograph with famed Master watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht, who was prepared for skepticism. This quickly turned to enthusiasm as Marco unveiled his drawings.
Its sleek lines frame a highly innovative and complex design with an unprecedented display made possible by a revolutionary movement, the Agengraphe. Ten years in the making, this groundbreaking automatic calibre goes beyond the limitations imposed by preceding mechanisms, enabling a centralized indication of the chronograph functions, thus enabling a radical focus on legibility and performance. The time of day is presented in striking relief around the periphery of the dial by the small pointer at 6 o’clock, floating just above 2 rotating discs.
Singer Reimagined’s straps are manufactured with the same care and attention that Singer Vehicle Design lavishes on the interiors of our clients’ cars. With their distinctive square tip, the straps are crafted from rare and fine quality leathers by expert artisans in Geneva. Each strap is handmade, hand-stitched and the brand signature is subtly hot-stamped on the inner lining. Singer Reimagined offers a rich choice of custom-made straps upon request. These can be personalized to fit the style of each client.
