Patented Single Hand Time Display
Conceived in Hong Kong, Engineered & Manufactured in Switzerland
WATER RESISTANT 10ATM
Impeccable Engineering & Uncompromising Design
Built on Trusted Swiss Technology
SNGLRTY – conceived in Hong Kong and crafted in Switzerland – is a Swiss-made chronometer that is the world’s first watch to be able to accurately display both hours and minutes with a single moving hand. The micromechanical module to achieve the One Hand Indication (OHI) is positioned above the mechanical movement and the distinctive hour hand frames the minutes beside the relevant hour location, resulting in a unique movement that fascinates – just press play to see it in action.
10 Minutes in 10 Seconds
Telling the time from the classic two hand display needs to be decrypted from the positions of the hands, in contrast a digital display presents an answer. We wanted to combine these two so the time is presented without decryption but used a classic mechanical watch movement. The logical consequence was to use the 12 hour display, but the challenge was to display the minutes accurately and at a single point which is synchronised with the location of the classic sweep of the hour hand. The solution to this challenge is the core of SNGLRTY, by sending the minutes counter clockwise all the information for accurate time reading could be presented at a single location and assimilated in a single glance. SNGLRTY presents the time so that it does not require decryption but utilising a classic analogue movement.
SNGLRTY is the long overdue next step in the evolution of the chronometer and reaches out to those who identify themselves as different from the crowd and embrace new technology and innovation. They cherish the precision of a Swiss watch, the desire to differentiate themselves from the crowd and to have a conversation as well as timepiece.
