The new watch company was born in 2014, when Rob Dickinson, the founder of Singer Vehicle Design, joined hands with Marco Borraccino, a well-known watch designer in order to create high end mechanical timepieces inspired from the golden era of watch making, especially the iconic sport-classic chronographs of the late 1960s and ‘70s.
|Singer Reimagined - Singer Track 1|
In this timepiece, the chronograph function takes centre-stage as it should in a sports watch. The legibility of the dial, reminiscent of dashboard instruments, is further enhanced by instantaneous jumping chronograph hours and minutes. The hour display of the watch is presented in a fascinating relief around the periphery of the dial. The hours and minutes are indicated at 6 o’clock by the small indicator set just above 2 rotating discs.
The Singer Track 1 is worn on a soft black calf leather strap with khaki green alligator lining. It is perforated with brushed titanium screw down rivets a Singer Vehicle Design signature echoing the early Porsche 911’s.
