Swiss luxury watch brand Singer Reimagined has launched a special timepiece in collaboration with UK based independent watch specialist retailer The Limited Edition.
Officially launched on 20th Feb 2023, the spectacular ten-piece Flytrack ‘On The Road’ limited edition by Singer Reimagined was borne out of a shared passion for the wide open road and the thrill of new adventure by long time friends Pietro Tomajer of The Limited Edition and Marco Borraccino of Singer Reimagined.
This exclusive chronograph watch takes inspiration from the 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. It sports an enticing 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.
It houses the proprietary Flytrack Calibre AG6364. Developed in association with Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and his team at Agenhor, this manual-winding chronograph movement’s central second hand converts into an on-demand sixty-second flyback pointer with push-button instant reset.
The smoothly curved stainless steel body with circular brushed finish provides a contrast with its polished Grade 5 titanium bezel, crown and single pusher. Thanks to the slender bezel profile, the gently domed sapphire crystal spans right across the face of the watch, almost to the limits of the case.
The dial boasts an imposing style with black, grey and vivid orange colors, enhanced with powerful Super-LumiNova accents. 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.
The sapphire crystal caseback reveals the unique Singer AG6364 manual winding movement. 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.
The Flytrack On The Road edition is available to purchase exclusively through The Limited Edition.
