Singer Reimagined Track1 Endurance Edition 24h Chronograph
The new Track 1 Endurance Edition 24h Chronograph celebrates the race of the century and showcases Singer’s unique race livery designed for the Hertz Team JOTA’s Porsche 963. Limited to only 24 watches, this chronograph features an enhanced version of Singer’s signature central chronograph movement, the Agengraphe, which includes a dedicated 24-hour chrono function. The lightweight titanium case is inspired by the race car’s use of titanium, complemented by a golden ZRN coating and black details.
The dial layout of the Track 1 Endurance Edition incorporates a central scale for 24-hour chrono indications, along with the outer scale for minutes and seconds. The engraved checkers pattern and the three-dimensional SINGER logo on the dial add to its distinctive appearance within Singer’s chronograph collection. The time of day is displayed through constantly rotating ceramic discs at the watch’s edge, with the outermost disc indicating the hours and the inner discs indicating minutes past the hour.
The AgenGraphe caliber, powering the Singer Track 1, revolutionizes traditional chronograph movements. Developed over a decade, this groundbreaking mechanical innovation redefines the principles of chronograph legibility by placing all chronograph functions in the center of the watch. The AgenGraphe also incorporates jumping minute and hour indicators for improved readability. The movement’s clutch mechanism connects the chronograph to the timekeeping gear train, utilizing a horizontal friction clutch for efficient operation.
With its dial-side rotor, the Singer Track 1 allows a clear view of the movement and its meticulously hand-finished parts, totaling 477 components.
