Singer Reimagined caught the attention of the entire petrol-loving community when it released the Track 1 wristwatch — a precise chronograph combining elements from a handful of 1960s and 1970s staples. Like many of the company’s projects, its unique timekeeper was met with dramatic praise, selling out, and ending its production run. Now, one of the brand’s original prototype models has found its way onto the hands of Phillips.

Among the auction site’s magnificent catalog of historic memorabilia, Singer Reimagined’s ‘Track 1’ Prototype stands apart, thanks to its obvious lineage, importance, and appeal. As the original iteration of the company’s prestigious “Launch Edition,” the watch represents a turning point in the design of automotive wristwear, courtesy of its 911-inspired speedometer silhouette, centrally-mounted orange hands, and rotating aluminum discs. Housed within the watch’s 43mm titanium case, buyers will find a signed dial and movement developed by Widerrecht, notable for its precision, engineering, and architecture. If you’re looking to procure one of the wristwear world’s most interesting collector’s items, head to Phillips’ website to place an advance bid of $20,700 or more.

Purchase: $20,700+
