News: Singer Reimagined Flytrack Concept Watch

Singer reimagined FLYTRACK CONCEPT
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Singer Reimagined was one of the first brands to use the AgenGraphe – the movement developed by Agenhor. See more information about this movement in this article from Quill&Pad. The watch was called Singer Track 1. The second timepiece of the brand, the Flytrack, is a mechanical, hand-wound movement with flyback seconds. To discover the Flytrack Concept Watch, feel free to join Singer Reimagined at Barton7 show-room in Geneva starting today, Sunday, January 13th to Thursday, January 17th. Check the full press release below.

For its second creation, Singer Reimagined follows the same formula of creating a highly-practical timing function that prioritises readability.

The Flytrack Concept Watch lays the foundation for a new kind of tool watch allowing for basic, straight-forward timekeeping. It captures the essence of the chronograph, on demand as you need it.

Presented during the 2019 Geneva watch week as a concept watch, the Flytrack Collection will make it to market later this year. It provides yet another illustration of the brand’s mantra, that of an innovation lab committed to reimagining and reinventing horological functions in a user-friendly way.

CONTINUOUS CONSECUTIVE TIMING

The Singer Reimagined Flytrack Concept Watch is powered by an innovative movement with a clear focus on functionality.

Designed for continuous action, its unique flyback seconds allows for the consecutive measurement of short time intervals – lap times, average speed or acceleration time on a race track.

With only a single push of a button, the sweep second hand can be returned to zero and restarted. It will do so the instant the push-piece is released, thus enabling you to begin retiming precisely and quickly without needing to press pushers three times in succession to stop, reset and re-start the chronograph.

It can also be used for precise time setting, allowing the wearer to zero and instantly restart the second hand at the beginning of a minute, thus perfectly synchronizing the watch.

REIMAGINING CLASSIC WATCHMAKING FOR ENHANCED FUNCTIONALITY

As with Singer Reimagined’s first opus, the Flytrack Concept Watch aims at radically enhancing performance, functionality and legibility. Focusing on the essentials, it features a central display of the minutes and seconds while the hours are indicated at the periphery via an arrow shaped indicator on a rotating ring. Highlighted in striking orange, the passing seconds can be read with just a glance.

Unprecedented in the watch industry, the concept required the development of a completely new movement. Its sophisticated architecture allows the second hand to be disengaged, while a heart shaped cam brings it back to the zero position. Developed with Agenhor, the hand-wound Flytrack caliber comprises more than 300 components. It operates at 21’600 vibrations per hour and can store up to 52 hours of power reserve.

BEAUTY BORN FROM A SINGLE-MINDED PURSUIT TO OPTIMIZE FUNCTION

Flytrack retains the same stylish design as Track1, creating a distinctive brand signature. With clean, dynamic lines, the barrel-shaped case features a round opening. 43 mm in diameter, it comes in lightweight grade 5 titanium. Its slightly domed push piece at 2 o’clock allows for easy resetting of the seconds, even when driving. For enhanced ergonomics, the crown is integrated into the case band at 4 o’clock.

ABOUT SINGER REIMAGINED

Singer Reimagined was born from the encounter between Marco Borraccino Italian watch designer and entrepreneur and Rob Dickinson, Founder and creative Director of Singer Vehicle Design. The company was created to reimagine hhigh-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, Track 1 – with Hong Kong Edition voted ‘Best Chronograph’ at the 2018 GPHG, the Oscars of watchmaking. Thanks to its Track 1 Collection, Singer Reimagined has redefined 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 chronograph functions, thus enabling a radical focus on legibility and performance. In 2019, Singer Reimagined presents a new kind of tool watch powered by an innovative calibre allowing for consecutive, continuous sports timekeeping.
