Redefining the chronograph functionality, new Singer Track1 Bold Edition, with matte black ceramic aluminum case (43 mm), automatic caliber Singer Reimagined 6361, column-wheel chronograph, hours, minutes on peripheral discs, central chronograph with instantaneous hours, instantaneous minutes, and seconds, black technical textile strap with black DLC coated rivets. Limited edition of 25 numbered pieces.

Singer Reimagined was born from the encounter between Rob Dickinson, Founder and creative Director of Singer Vehicle Design, and Italian watch designer Marco Borraccino. The company was created to reimagine high watchmaking, combining obsessive attention to detail, unique perspectives, and a love for the iconic sport watches of the 1960s and 1970s. The duo was soon joined by master watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht who would provide a revolutionary chronograph movement to power their first opus, Track1.

With Track1, Singer Reimagined redefines the chronograph functionality. Ten years in the making, its revolutionary movement, the AgenGraphe, goes beyond the limitations imposed by preceding mechanisms, enabling a centralized indication of the chrono-graph 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. Following the introduction of the Emirates Edition in November 2019, Singer Reimagined takes Dubai Watch Week 2021 opportunity to unveil the sixth version of Track1. Named the Bold Edition, this power-infused stopwatch made its debut in November 2021 again at The DIFC Dubai during DWW, one of the city’s most exclusive fair of fine timepieces.

With the Bold Edition, Singer Reimagined Track1 continues its conquest of well-informed watch enthusiasts. Encased in high performance ceramic aluminum, this revolutionary chronograph is presented in a lightweight version clad in black with powerful golden accents. Track1 was brought to life by a team of experts driven by the pursuit of aesthetic and engineering perfection, passionate professionals guided by the need to embrace challenges to foster innovation and creativity. Singer Reimagined refined a process to produce technical components: aluminum-ceramization. In a bold move, this high-performance process is mastered to manufacture the black case of the Track1 Bold Edition. Ceramic-aluminum is crafted by electroplasma oxidation. The surface layer of a special, aerospace- specification aluminum alloy is transformed into ceramic. The result of this high-tech process is a Super-black case combining exceptional scratch, wear, and corrosion resistance with the lightness of its aluminum core. This cutting-edge material offers comfort, resistance, and great aesthetics.

The interplay between light and shadows enhances the sleek lines of the 43 mm barrel-shaped case and its smooth-to-the-touch surface offers an exceptional tactile experience. Located on either side of the case for enhanced operations and ergonomics, the crown and pushers are fashioned out of grade 5 titanium. Their surface is treated with a black DLC coating providing superior resistance and head-turning good looks. Each of us has a widely different idea of what makes Track1 collection unequivocally unique, but, whatever your expectations, it’s near impossible not to get captured by this new Bold Edition. Whether it’s the elegant matte black ceramic case, contrasting with the glamorous golden accents, or indulging in its subtle sporty look, The Bold Edition has it all. On the dial, refinement bar is set high with the elegant contrasting use of golden accents; the sporty touch of orange hands ensures optimal legibility while the golden tachymeter creates a clear separation between the peripheral time of day and the central elapsed time. To complement its powerful and elegant style, Singer Reimagined Track1 Bold Edition features a black technical textile strap fitted with grade-5 titanium screw down rivets, coated in black DLC. The full-black look it’s completed by the new signature folding clasp executed in black. The Singer Reimagined Track1 Bold is a limited edition of 25 numbered watches.

The AgenGraphe, the calibre powering the Singer Track1 stands apart from all previous chronograph movements. The result of a decade of development, this ground-breaking piece of mechanical ingenuity completely redefines fundamental principles that have remained unchanged for decades. The underlying idea that led to the invention of the AgenGraphe was to enhance the legibility of the chronograph – which is usually poor – with the use of small counters spread out across the dial. Thanks to a radically new architecture, the AgenGraphe brings together all the chronograph functions in the centre of the watch, allowing for an easy and intuitive reading of elapsed time. To further enhance legibility, the chronograph incorporates jumping minute and hour indicators. To connect the chronograph mechanism to the timekeeping gear train, the AgenGraphe features an innovative clutch mechanism. The coupling is made horizontally which requires less space, yet it is made using friction, just like a vertical clutch. The dial-side rotor (made possible because the hands are on a central axis) leaves an unimpeded view of the movement and its 477 meticulously hand-finished parts.

The Singer Reimagined Track1 Bold is a limited edition of 25 numbered watches.
