    Singer Vehicle Design are three words that push the heart rate of petrolheads to overdrive. Known for creating custom Porsche 911s of incredible appeal they decided to create a watch infused with their genetic codes. Singer Reimagined is the brainchild of 3 powerhouses: Singer founder Rob Dickinson (for metal fans he is the cousin of Iron Maiden's front man Bruce Dickinson), watch designer Marco Borraccino and master watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht of Agenhor.

    The result is the Track 1 Launch Edition of which the present example is the original prototype. This piece of horological mastery definitely has the look and feel of a fuel injected high velocity machinery. The case is unabashedly 1970s in design and the dial looks like a speedometer on a 911 dashboard with two centrally mounted orange hands. These hands are in fact the chronograph counters, the large hand being the seconds counter and the smaller one the minutes counter. Time is read via two rotating aluminum discs that rotate clockwise indicating hours and minutes via an orange marker at 6 o’clock.

    The movement, developed by Widerrecht is incredible in its architecture and construction. Many innovative elements are featured in this movement, first of all having centrally mounted chronograph hands required the movement to be …reimagined, the power distribution and smoothness of the pushers have been worked, and a smart use of a system merging the vertical and the horizontal clutch offers here the best of both worlds. Finally, and ingeniously to avoid obstruction of the view on the movement the automatic winding rotor has been placed under the dial.

    We are delighted to offer the prototype of this groundbreaking model which differs from the commercially offered models notably in the case design and the fact that there are no engravings on the caseback. A certificate from Singer Reimagined attests to this.

    Combining innovative technology with cutting-edge design, the present Track 1 Prototype represents the acme of what contemporary horology can offer at its most exciting.

Few brands have captured the hearts and minds of both lovers of cars and horology as much as Singer. Beyond trendsetting, they have redefined the concept of "Reimagination" with their infamous 911 and 70's inspired wristwatches. The present Track 1 is arguably one of the most important watches to leave the brand. The prototype, with its unique case design that is free from engravings and leather NATO strap, features a dial influenced by the rev counter of the fabled 911. Combining innovative technology with cutting-edge design, the present Track 1 Prototype represents the acme of what contemporary horology can offer. Offered with its bespoke prototype Attestation of Authenticity and Provenance, this is a trophy watch for lovers of Porsche, avantgarde design and chronographs.
