The Track knows a trick or two

A finalist in the 2017 GHPG with its first model, winner this fall of the SIAR 2018 watch show and the GPHG (see p. 110) in the Chronograph category with this third version, the youthful watch brand inspired by the 1960s and 70s has put itself firmly on the watch map while venturing off the beaten track. On both sides, the Track 1 shifts track and swaps classic read-off for a reimagined construction reflected in the brand name. Designed by the ingenious Agenhor developers, the winding rotor has been placed on the dial side, so as to provide an optimal caseback view of the 477 splendidly decorated components. The dial itself provides 60-hour (!) central chronograph indications, while two external rotating rings indicate the hours and minutes, adjusted by a titanium crown at 4 o’clock, and shown by the 6 o’clock marker. Even the case is out of the ordinary, made from ceramized aluminum endowing it with lightness, robustness and an incomparable shade of black. Automobile fans will note aesthetic nods to the bodywork of vintage cars. Right on track for wrist candy like no other.
