Singer Track1 Emirates Edition (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
The Emirates Edition is a new interpretation of the Singer Reimagined spirit – Keeping a connection with its original DNA in the design, colors and material.
Marco Borraccino has pursued a remarqueble result by combining luxury and technicity in this new edition of the Singer Track1. It represents his vision of the DWW2019 theme “Technology and Innovation”.
Luxury: cutting-edge engineering and material science, together with bespoke finishing:
For the Track 1 Emirates Edition, Singer Reimagined combines sober colors with bright finishing. This contrast has become a signature in the Singer’s watch-making designs.
Contrast in the case: Singer plays with light reflection by choosing to match light-absorbing materials with reflective ones. A matt black ceramic aluminum case is selected, contrasting with ZRN finishing. At the same time colour-contrast is seen in the interplay of black vs. gold.
Contrast in the dial: Singer Reimagined selects a very specific khaki green hue representing for a sporting look together with an elegant and sober touch. The khaki green background then highlights Singer’s signature orange seconds/minutes and hours hands.
Golden details - the tachymetric flange, cabochon, crown and pushers - are finished in gold. The unique, rotating hours and minutes discs are engraved with ecru SLN 7 graphics to match the dial elements.
Technicity: specialized researches & new concepts:
Ceramic-Aluminum: The material of the case is created through oxidation using electro-plasma technique that transforms the upper layer of the aluminum into a ceramic. This process insures that the case retains the lightness of aluminum together with durability and scratch resistance of a ceramic material.
ZrN treatment: Beyond the golden color it gives to titanium, ZrN treatment helps to improve resistance to wear and enhances the hardness of the upper layers of the material.
The Engine Under The Bonnet
The AgenGraphe, the caliber powering the Singer Track1 stands apart from all previous chronograph movements. The result of a decade of development, this groundbreaking piece of mechanical ingenuity completely redefines fundamental principles that have remained unchanged for decades.
The underlying idea that led to the invention of the AgenGraphe was to enhance the legibility of the chronograph – which is usually poor – with the use of small counters spread out across the dial. Thanks to a radically new architecture, the AgenGraphe brings together all the chronograph functions in the centre of the watch, allowing for an easy and intuitive reading of elapsed time. To further enhance legibility, the chronograph incorporates jumping minute and hour indicators.
To connect the chronograph mechanism to the timekeeping gear train, the AgenGraphe features an innovative clutch mechanism. The coupling is made horizontally which requires less space, yet it is made using friction, just like a vertical clutch. The dial-side rotor (made possible because the hands are on a central axis) leaves an unimpeded view of the movement and its 477 meticulously finished parts.
