UK based independent watch specialist retailer The Limited Edition is pleased to announce its latest exclusive collaboration with one of the most exciting and innovative young watch companies to have emerged in the past few years, with the spectacular ten-piece Flytrack ‘On The Road’ limited edition by Singer Reimagined.

Flytrack ‘On The Road’

Borne out of a shared passion for the wide open road and the thrill of new adventure by longtime friends Pietro Tomajer of The Limited Edition and Marco Borraccino of Singer Reimagined, the Flytrack On The Road edition is inspired by that great rite of passage which is the coast to coast road trip across the United States, and borrows its name from the iconic 1950’s Kerouac novel.

A watch of striking aesthetics and cool, sleek styling, the Flytrack ‘On The Road’ sports an irresistible combination of vivid orange detail juxtaposed against a backdrop of matte black and anthracite grey, with the brushed and polished metal surfaces of its barrel-shaped case and the tight weave of its black textile strap further accentuating its sporty and highly technical personality.

Equipped with the proprietary Flytrack Calibre AG6364 manual winding movement, developed in association with Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and his team at Agenhor, with its central second hand which converts into an on-demand sixty-second flyback pointer with push-button instant reset, the Singer Reimagined Flytrack collection celebrates, in its very purest form, the most innovative and ingenious reinvention of the chronograph complication in its over two hundred year history.

Presented in an elaborate multi-part case, comprising a smoothly curved stainless steel body, whose circular brushed finish provides a contrast with its polished Grade 5 titanium bezel, crown and single pusher, the Flytrack On The Road edition is a masterclass in modern day design, being at the same time contemporary, yet clearly informed by the classic sports watch designs of the sixties and seventies.

A slender bezel profile means that the gently domed sapphire crystal spans right across the face of the watch, almost to the limits of the case. Beneath, the head-turning combination of black, grey and vivid orange, with powerful Super-LumiNova accents underpin the Flytrack On The Road’s imposing presence on the wrist.

With the absence of a conventional hour hand on the dial, if the Flytrack’s time display seems a little confusing at first glance, it is in fact intuitive and very easy to read. The segmented dial features a revolving matte black ceramic aluminium ring around its outer edge, with a luminous orange triangle to indicate the hours, providing crisp at-a-glance legibility in all light conditions. The orange rehaut which separates the inner and outer dial doubles as a reference for the hours as well as for the semi-skeletonised minutes hand, which is also accented with a luminous orange insert.

The third hand is the Flytrack’s focal point, and serves two purposes. In regular use, it can be used as a sweeping constant seconds pointer, complementing the minute and hour indicators, but by depressing the pusher at the two o’clock position the hand instantly resets to zero and then, when the pusher is released, it takes off to time a short event of under sixty seconds. Not only that, but repeat the process, and via a heart-shaped cam the flyback pointer resets and restarts, enabling the on-demand timing of consecutive, back-to-back events.

On the underside of the watch, a sapphire caseback reveals the unique Singer AG6364 manual winding movement, which has been developed specifically for this collection by Singer and concept specialists Agenhor, and is a direct descendent of the company’s Calibre 6361, which can count among its many accolades the Aiguille award in the hotly contested GPHG Chronograph category in 2018.

Running at 21,600 vib/h (3Hz), and boasting an impressive sixty hours of power reserve, the movement comprises 314 individual components, which are manufactured and finished to the uncompromising standards of haute horlogerie at Agenhor.

The Flytrack On The Road edition is manufactured in a strictly limited production of ten numbered pieces, with each example bearing a solid 18ct gold numeral which is embedded into the topside of the case, just off the five o’clock position. It is presented on a durable high-tech fabric strap with orange stitching which is secured on the wrist with a stainless steel folding clasp.

A fabulous piece of contemporary watch design, and one of profound technical innovation the Flytrack On The Road edition is available to purchase exclusively through The Limited Edition.

Marco’s quote:
We’ve been riffing long time with Pietro about a collaboration piece as we know each other for almost 20 years (!) when we both were in Milan. Starting from the edgy minimalism of the 2019 Flytrack Concept Watch, very much appreciated by Pietro, we decided to create a statement timepiece with a bold personality and an undeniable presence on the wrist.’ – Marco Borraccino – Singer Reimagined Co-Owner
