CAR (UK) - - Insider -

Singer, the Cal­i­for­nian cre­ator of the most in­sanely desirable (and ex­pen­sive) re-en­gi­neered old Porsche 911s has now made a watch which is, pre­dictably, in­sanely ex­pen­sive and desirable. Singer’s Bri­tish-born founder Rob Dick­in­son has col­lab­o­rated with a cut­ting-edge watch­maker and de­signer to make some­thing which gen­uinely re‹lects the na­ture of his cars. The ex­te­rior is vin­tage rac­ing-driver’s chrono­graph, with a twist. But in­side is a rad­i­cal reimag­in­ing of the me­chan­i­cal chrono move­ment which puts the stop­watch func­tion at the cen­tre and rel­e­gates the ac­tual time to two ro­tat­ing discs at the pe­riph­ery. Use­ful? Maybe. Cool? Yes. singerve­hi­cledesign.com
