Singer Reimagined creates remarkable watches for a discerning global clientele. We are guided by an approach that encompasses a passionate focus on iconic design and definitive mechanical watches. All of this combined with a superlative attention to details and the use of most advanced engineering methods and materials research.
The Singer Flytrack Barista combines the love of espresso ritual, performed countless times every day around the world, with the engineering of an exclusive timepiece.
Singer Flytrack Barista Edition has been conceived to provide the most instantaneous and instinctive way of measuring short elapsed times.
We teamed up again with the Agenhor team in Geneva, to conceive this complication that allows to measure endlessly, sequential events.
Singer Flytrack is a “time only” watch, featuring our signature peripheral hours disc indication combined with central minutes and central swiping seconds.
The main twist, not visible at first sight, is easily accessible through the push-button at 2 o’clock.
A single touch of the pusher instantly reset to zero the central sweeping second-hand. Releasing the pusher sets the second hand in motion, allowing instant measurement of short intervals of time (60 seconds). An operation that can be repeated as many times as needed, without interfering with the timekeeping of your watch.
The Flytrack mechanism is also designed to be used as a hacking seconds de vice to synchronize your watch with an accurate timekeeping source. By keeping the push button down, the seconds hand will stay still, allowing you to release it precisely at the correct moment.
The BARISTA scale was conceived to allow easy measurement of the extraction time for your favourite coffee style prepared with your espresso machine.
Espresso brewing is an art. Precision is the key. The Singer Flytrack “Barista” represents the meeting point of two universes: The Art of Watchmaking and The Art of Espresso.
Many factors are involved in the extraction of the perfect single espresso shot, beginning with 6 to 8 grams of your favourite, freshly ground arabica, pressed with an espresso tamper and the correct amount of force. Extracting the perfect 30 ml espresso shot then takes between 25 to 30 seconds using hot water between 90 and 95 °C at a pressure of 9ATM. No room for improvisation!
The longer the extraction time shown on the scale, the larger (and more diluted ) your coffee style. Just be aware that Italians would complain to anything longer than an Espresso!
When brewing an espresso shot, the first 5 to 7 seconds - the orange area on the dial scale - correspond to the infusion of hot water into ground coffee. Nothing happens visually yet. The magic is happening inside the filter. Next, the first drops of a rich, black liquid are seen, followed by a dense foam spilling. Depending on the amount of time you keep your coffee dripping into the cup, taste, strength, density, acidity and fragrances will evolve. Ristretto, Espresso, Lungo or Americano?
There are only guidelines in coffee brewing, no hard and fast rules. What really matters is how each one enjoys its coffee the most!
