Singer Reimagined timepieces are by definition a love letter to the vintage design of iconic 60’s and 70’s timepieces, now enhanced by functional improvements and state of the art horological engineering.
1969 Chronograph is the quintessential expression of Singer Reimagined high-watchmaking approach, featuring the most recent version of the famous Agengraphe caliber. A new time display, enhanced readability and the award-winning 60 hours chronograph function taking central stage on the dial. All of this condensed to only 40mm.
The case size of the new Singer 1969 collection is 40mm. A sober and stylishly design to fit every wrist. A development in design based on well-researched ergonomic and functional considerations. Stainless steel is the material we chose for the case. Solid,preciously finished and an ever classic. Brushed surfaces and polished edges, a Singer signature, are meticulously executed to provide a jewel-like appeal. The two-pieces case features a domed glass-box sapphire crystal, providing an instant retro-look reminiscent of classic timepieces. The vigorous curves of its shape are underlined by mirror polished edges providing dynamism and velocity.
The stainless-steel bracelet is composed of two contrasting elements. The edgy brushed “H” links are designed after racetracks’ curbs shape, providing a contrasted and vibrant effect. In contraposition, the rounded polished center links bring smooth reflections and sparkles of light. This combination ensures exceptional wearability and comfort. The brushed sloping facets are complemented by polished chamfers, visually extending the case profile with polished edges – a brand signature feature. Tapering from 22 to 18mm, the new bracelet, incorporating an adjustable fitting system housed in the folding clasp, is perfected for the widest array of wrists. The micro adjustment mechanism, with 21 steps to precisely adapt the length of the bracelet by up to 2cm, allows an optimal fit, be it for gents’ or ladies’ wrists, without having to take the watch off.
The dial. Executed in a very deep and precious piano-black lacquer finish, dials are enriched with an applied signature golden crown ring, adding an iconic and unexpected detail which complements the sobriety and functional minimalism of the graphics. These elements are magnified by a domed glass-box sapphire crystal, visually extruding the dial out of its metal frame.
The new Chronograph 1969’s central dial displays the chronographic information in pure Singer style. Seconds, jumping minutes and jumping hours hands are centrally mounted and all point to the same base-60 scale. Singer chronographs are the only ones allowing event tracking of up to 60 hours. Time-of-the-day indication is displayed on the bottom side of the dial, via two disks rotating underneath the dial surface. Disks graphics and time indication arrows are finished in SuperLuminova®.
The movement. The 72h power reserve is complemented by a hidden automatic winding system, positioned underneath the dial, which leaves an unobstructed view of our beautifully finished intricate caliber 6365 counting 491 different components and 56 jewels.
