Singer Track 1 Geneva Edition Watch Hands-On
Almost precisely a year prior today, aBlogtoWatch appeared the new Singer Reimagined watch brand after I visited the popular Porsche auto customizer in Los Angeles . Today we investigate the subsequent item offering from the Singer Reimagined brand, which is the Singer Track 1 Geneva Edition. Obviously I expected to go right to Geneva to see the Geneva Edition, which is one of four watches Singer vows to deliver each year for the following two years. That implies there will in the end be somewhere in the range of eight and nine minor departure from this intriguing vintage motorsports-subject chronograph watch that is created in Geneva with a development by Agenhor (an esteemed and exceptionally respected mechanical development creator and plan company).
The Singer Track 1 Geneva Edition presents a somewhat upgraded dial just as another case material which is an exceptionally alluring variation of 18k yellow gold known as 1N gold. It is a touch more pale than most yellow gold combinations and I think it is lovely when blended in with the profound dim shades of the dial and the light orange accents. Singer made an exquisite showing changing the internal piece of the watch’s dial, which is the place where the focal chronograph is. On the off chance that you review from our presentation article on the Singer Track 1, you’ll recall that the whole “point” of the watch is to offer a mechanical chronograph with that complication being extremely simple to peruse. The outcome is a focal chronograph second, minutes, and hours instrument where the time is really shown by means of two enormous pivoting rings. Time is perused at the orange implement marker situated at 6 o’clock on the dial.
This is a costly (albeit seemingly decently valued) watch since it is truly select, being delivered in minuscule numbers with every custom part. This goes from the case and dial to the development and lash. Singer’s principle work is taking more seasoned Porsche vehicles (for the most part 911s) and making them “better than new.” They produce elite “fantasy” forms of the first vehicles for particular gatherers willing to pay as much as possible for probably the coolest game vehicle “toys” around. It is more than fitting for these clients to have something as unique on their wrist to complete the experience. It’s surely not a wristwatch for standard utilization, but rather it was never intended to be.
Drive that air-cooled Porsche around a track and you’ll be completely appreciating the “analog” experience that such a vehicle can manage. Having a comparative “analog” stopwatch experience on your wrist as a mechanical chronograph just adds to the experience. Sure there is a whole universe of other chronograph watches accessible, however the Singer Track 1 needed to ensure that no other chronograph works very like it. Consistent with the brand’s guarantee, working and perusing the chronograph with this specific format is ergonomic and neat. Singer Reimagined likewise made a fine showing in interfacing with the Singer brand insight in that the Track 1 positively feels like a “better than the first timepiece.” What I mean by that is the watch is intended to look like it was brought into the world in a time, for example, the mid 1970s, yet is from a quality and complexity viewpoint, something completely not the same as the watches that aided propelled its design.
The stout tonneau-formed case is entirely wearable, 42mm wide, and 15mm thick (water-impervious to a noteworthy 100m). The round dial is extensive and keeping in mind that not as neat (chronograph-wise) as the first titanium Track 1, the focal point of the dial is more appealing. The profundity of the dial loans a significantly more top of the line look and by and large utilization of shadings and materials is very much done. Perusing the time is as yet an element of taking a gander at the lower part of the case and seeing which parts of great importance and moment rings are contacting the orange baton.
The development within the watch was intended to have the chronograph pushers on rival sides of the case instead of being on a similar side. The pushers are not difficult to press and ideal to work. A crown to wind the development (it is a programmed) whenever wanted or change the time is situated at the 4 o’clock position working on it. For this Geneva Edition rendition of the Track 1, Singer had the option to prepare its new lash which is intended to repeat the seat calfskin of some Porsche 911 vehicles. Ties like this can be tweaked per the impulses of the client, in the event that I review correctly.
The development within the Singer Track 1 Geneva Edition is the thing that the horology devotees will get all amped up for. Singer was brilliant to create a watch that would interest a specialty base of modified Porsche vehicle owners –yet that would be affirmed by wristwatch fans. The development (which is delivered and collected in Geneva, Switzerland) is known as the type 6361. It is a programmed development with a concealed fringe rotor working at 3Hz (21,600 bph) with a force hold of 60 hours.
The chronograph complication highlights hopping hours and bouncing minutes alongside a range seconds hand to consider exact chronograph estimations of slipped by time. It is an exceptionally complicated development being created from an aggregate of 477 sections and is obviously noticeable through the back of the case. Agenhor realizes how to make a development that is keen in its usefulness just as alluring to the eye. The better incentive is obviously the titanium variant of the Singer Track 1 watch, yet in 1N yellow gold the development, case, and dial cooperate so well on the Geneva Edition of the watch. It isn’t a restricted version, yet creation will be thin. Cost for the Singer Reimagined Track 1 Geneva Edition watch is 72,000 CHF. singerreimagined.com
