On the occasion of Dubai Watch Week, Singer Reimagined is back with a new edition of its beautiful Track1 central indication chronograph. Meet the Singer Reimagined Track1 BOLD Edition in ceramic-aluminium and golden accents.
Singer Reimagined is an independent watchmaking brand born from the encounter between Rob Dickinson, Founder and Creative Director of Singer Vehicle Design, and Italian watch designer Marco Borraccino. Their goal has been to reimagine high-watchmaking, in particular the chronograph. Distilling the essence of the classic stopwatches of the 1960s and 1970s, their idea was to place a radical focus on functionality. The chronograph function takes centre stage with a central display of its indications. The time and minute indications are featured on the dial’s periphery with two rotating discs and an index at 6 o’clock. The Hong Kong edition of their first opus, Track1, was awarded the best chronograph at GPHG 2018.
The brilliant concept was made possible thanks to the AgenGraphe, the groundbreaking central-display chronograph developed by Agenhor’s Jean-Marc Wiederrecht, a movement packed with innovations and redefining principles that had remained unchanged for decades.

With the ‘bold’ edition, the 43mm barrel-shaped case of the Singer Reimagined Track1 comes in black ceramic-aluminium contrasting with the golden accents on its dial. Ceramic-aluminium is obtained by electro-plasma oxidation. The surface layer of a special aluminium alloy is transformed into ceramic. It allows to offer exceptional scratch, wear and corrosion resistance while keeping the lightness of its aluminium core. Located on either side of the case for enhanced operations, the crown and pushers are fashioned out of DLC-titanium.
The Singer Track1 is worn on a black technical textile strap with blacked brushed titanium screw-down rivets – echoing the early Porsche 911. The folding buckle is in brushed DLC-coated steel. A limited-edition of 25 watches, the Singer Reimagined Track1 BOLD Edition will be priced at CHF 48,500 (excl. local taxes and VAT).
