SEE TIME DIFFERENTLY
PATENTED SINGLE-HAND WATCHES
ONE OF A KIND
SNGLRTY, the most innovative way to see time on your wrist. Featuring the industry-first OHI4 or OHI2 calibre it is the first watch ever designed to indicate the time as we experience it – uniquely in each moment. You get Swiss design and engineering in a world-first calibre that presents the precise time with a single hand. Add in a stunning sapphire crystal with seven layers of anti-reflective coating on BOTH sides, 100m of water resistance, customizable as you desire. This is not a watch that you wear, this is a statement about the individual you are.
The Idea and Deal
Even in the bar, close to midnight, after a few drinks, the idea seemed too good to leave just as an idea. So the two friends took their beer mat drawing, signed it 50/50 and christened it the OHI-Project, the One Hand Indication Project.
PROOF OF CONCEPT
The next morning, in the cold light of day, there were now many doubts. It could not have been that easy?
So we needed to answer these questions first:
a) Are we sure this has never been done before?
Daniel started to search in books, on the internet and consulted with his friends in Switzerland. Still nothing similar.
b) Everything indicated that our idea was innovative, but would it be patentable?
Steve and Daniel decided to file for a patent. This was to be the test of their idea, if they received a patent they would make the prototypes, if not then it would be time to move on and look for other challenges.
c) What is patent the about?
A single-hand or single-indicator timepiece that can simultaneously identify both the hour and minute portion of a give time is present herein. The timepiece includes ….
an indicator structured to rotate about the face of the timepiece and point to the hour element of the time via a distal end thereof.
In addition, the same indicator includes a minute identifying portion disposed along a length thereof that will align with a rotationally disposed minute disc. The minute disc includes indicia representative of the minutes evenly spaced radially about its surface in clockwise ascending order.
As the minute disc rotates counterclockwise and the indicator rotates clockwise, the indicator will simultaneously identify the hour element at its distal end and the minute element via the relative position of the minute disc.
In House Calibre
The novel time display required novel engineering. In collaboration with Le Cercle des Horlogères, the renowned Swiss horology engineers, SNGLRTY release the Calibre OHI.
Each component of the Calibre OHI is manufactured in the Swiss Jura mountains and assembled by SNGLRTY's own watchmaker.
The Calibre OHI was created out of necessity. This is the only watch movement with a reverse gear.
Patented One Hand Indication (OHI)
It was not only the movement that had to be carefully engineered. The One Hand Indication hand, that pays homage to the Breguet hand, evolved from functionality.
The oversized OHI hand required detailed engineering. The hand has a domed profile to increase its stiffness. This subtle feature brings added depth to a key aspect that defines every SNGLRTY watch.
11 Customizable Elements
This degree of customisation requires that each SNGLRTY watch is assembled exclusively for every customer. With eleven elements that can be configured there are over 500,000 possible variations now available - you will have a unique watch that reflects who you are.
Swiss Made And Therefore The Highest Quality
Daniel and Steve are proud of SNGLRTY’s Swiss heritage. Our collaboration with the finest Swiss engineers, craftsmen, and watchmakers, who have accumulated the finest skills passed down over the centuries, made SNGLRTY possible. Without these fine artisans, it would not be possible to produce this unrivaled patented timepiece.
