The Singer Flytrack collection has been designed to once again reimagine the chronograph. This time in the most minimalistic way : It is a celebration of the practicality of a chronograph combined with a specific calibrated scale.
Each Singer Flytrack is an Hours, Minutes and Seconds watch with a twist. Select the model that best fits your personality and fully matches your favourite timekeeping experience. A dedicated style for the tool function you are looking for. Prime Edition, is available in 3 exclusive models of 10 pieces each featuring a Grade 5 Titanium case with a matte micro-blasted finishing and hand polished accents. An original 18k gold digit, hand-applied on the case, indicates the number of your own Flytrack, as an exclusive feature to the Prime Edition.
After conceiving the award winning Singer Track1, with the aim of demonstrating how Singer could deeply reimagine the iconic Automatic Chronograph, by designing the Singer Flytrack, Marco Borraccino wanted to distil the ultimate vision of a chronograph. Singer Flytrack is a “time only” watch, featuring our signature peripheral hours-disc indication combined with central minutes and central sweeping seconds.
Developed in collaboration with Agenhor, Singer Flytrack movement, AG6364, has noble descendants, sharing its architecture with the prestigious, award winning, Agengraphe. A dedicated development, focused on efficiency and performance, drove our technical team and watchmakers to imagine innovative solutions to deliver a playful yet useful complication aiming to be the most minimalistic iteration on the chronograph theme. 314 components, manual winding, two barrels providing 55h of power reserve, 49 jewels and a unique flyback & zero-reset function, all these characteristics provide the Singer Flytrack with the pedigree of a future classic.
The triangular teethed clutch features a ratio of one tooth to three, to limit jumping forward or backward, allowing to reduce errors in case of shock. A large lever permanently keeps the system engaged, allowing the seconds hand swiping motion. When the user presses the reset button, the lever releases the clutch which disengages. The lever also acts as a reset hammer by pressing on a heart-cam in the center. When the user releases the button, the lever returns to its initial position and re-engages the system to restart the seconds hand motion instantly.
60’ seconds is the universal time-frame used for most of elapsed time calculations. Depending on the scale referred to, Singer can obtain a variety of different information. Historically, a wide range of dial graduations have been developed. Singer Reimagined decided to focus on the three most iconic ones: Tachymeter, Pulsometer and Telemeter.
Reimagining the seconds
Singer always aim to raise the bar: The twist on Flytrack watches is easily accessible through the push-button at 2 o’clock. Our proprietary system allows to instantly convert the central sweeping second-hand into a flyback chronograph-hand.
The unique Singer AG6364 mechanism allows to measure short time-based events, as many times you wish, without interfering with the watch timekeeping.
Holding the pushbutton down keeps the second hand motionless at zero. Releasing the button instantly sets the hand moving, allowing quick-reaction, light-speed starts. Pushing and releasing the button, will reset and restart immediately the central second hand for lightning time measurements.
The device can be used as well to zero-reset your watch time, very easily, whenever desired. Hold your push-button down and releasing it precisely at the right moment, to synchronize your watch.
