Singer Reimagined has made a reputation for itself within the impartial watchmaking scene by drastically rethinking the standard chronograph. The largest distinction is that protecting monitor of operating time is taking a backseat in just about all of Singer’s watches, with the Chronograph show taking centre stage. It burst upon the watchmaking scene with the extremely cool Monitor 1 Chronograph, and has since produced a number of variations of the idea, and a extra simplified model referred to as the Flytrack. This strips down the chronograph performance to the naked minimal of central flyback seconds solely. The intriguing Flytrack is now changed into a 10-piece particular version for UK-based specialist retailer The Restricted Version.
The place the unique Monitor 1 shocked us with its uncommon but intuitive show for the chronograph, pushed by the complicated AgenGraphe motion by Agenhor, the Flytrack retains issues quite simple. The thought behind the Flytrack is to permit for immediate one-minute timing of occasions with out the necessity to undergo a start-stop-reset sequence on a number of pushers.
This all involves life in a helmet-shaped case of 43mm throughout and 15mm in peak, made in stainless-steel with a titanium bezel on high. The pusher at 2 o’clock releases the central seconds hand, and a second push immediately releases it. You can even maintain it down and launch it on the exact second you want it to interact, and you are able to do it time and time once more because it’s a flyback seconds indication. The crown at 4 o’clock is used to wind and regulate the time. Every particular person piece will get its personal 18ct gold quantity embedded within the case.
For The Restricted Version, the Flytrack is completed with a deep matte black dial and vivid orange accents. The hours are indicated by the ceramic aluminium disc on the periphery, with an orange triangle pointing inwards to observe the sloped orange and black hour/minute flange. The central part has an anthracite monitor for the central seconds (and the minutes if you’ll), and two centrally mounted palms. The partly hollowed minute hand has an orange luminous insert, with the flyback central seconds hand absolutely in orange with a brushed metal cap. A shiny orange Singer signature finishes it off neatly.
A sapphire crystal caseback reveals the ingenious proprietary AG6364 motion, made by Agenhor. This manually wound motion is constructed utilizing 314 elements, runs at a frequency of 21,600vph and provides 60 hours of autonomy when absolutely wound. The important thing performance is after all the on-demand immediately resettable flyback chronograph seconds. The ending of the motion is top-notch, with Côtes de Genève, anglage, perlage, polished jewel sinks and so forth.
Identical to the common Flytrack, the Singer x The Restricted Version Flytrack ‘On the Highway’ comes on a high-tech cloth strap, completed in black with orange stitching and closed with a chrome steel folding buckle. Restricted to simply 10 items, it’s solely out there by The Restricted Version for GBP 23,900 earlier than taxes.
