The company is better known for fulfilling our childhood dreams – beautifully reimagining classic Porsches with up to date technology and power credentials.
But this time around they decided on something else for their latest project – albeit with the same level of craftsmanship. Singer Vehicle Design’s reimagined Porsches cost an arm and a leg – and maybe the remaining arm needs their first watch – the Track 1. The idea is actually the fruit of a partnership between Singer chief Rob Dickinson, watch designer Marco Borraccino, and watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht, according to reports. And the timepiece’s mechanical movement is quite the equivalent of a hypercar by keeping the automotive comparison here. The Track 1 gets Wiederrecht’s AgenGraphe caliber movement, with a couple of aluminum discs rotate on the outside, and the pointer at the traditional six o’clock position actually shows the current time.
The dials meanwhile are tasked to deliver the chronograph’s stopwatch functions – including hours, minutes, and seconds. And while classic chronographs can only measure a maximum of 12 hours, the Track 1 can actually go on for up to 60 hours. There’s also a clear back to see the complicated innards, brushed titanium case with polished details, 3 millimeters across (1.69 inches). The leather strap is just as fancy – with metal eyelets. The launch edition will come in 50 units and at a cost of 39,800 Swiss Francs.
