Exciting Times Ahead For SNGLRTY

It all changed at the top of the leaderboard for the #precisionpoint prize for precision.  Medellin, Columbia, which seems so long ago, ensured everything was mixed up again.  It seemed like the Chinese were about to romp away with the records, but as I pointed out, the Prize for Precision is set up to be one of the most open competitions.  Expect more volatility on the leaderboard as we move forward.

After Three Rounds

After three rounds, three nationalities are represented in the top three men’s and women’s competitions.  There are a lot of threes in there!  

Lim Shiyeon, from Korea, has catapulted to the top of the rankings with 145 bulls eyes over the three stages.  Coming in second is the Mexican Alejandra Valencia, and in third place is Michelle Kroppen from Germany, the world number seven.  None of these athletes have featured in the top three for the Prize For Precision this year.

All Change For The Men Too

It is all changed at the top of the table for the men’s Prize For Precision too.  Brady Ellison from the United States has catapulted to the top of the leaderboard with an unfathomable 202 bulls eyes.  Coming in second place is Mete Gazoz from Turkey with a still impressive 183 bulls eyes, and in joint third place, with 176 bulls eyes, is Marcus D’Almeida from Brazil and  Mauro Nespoli from Italy.

Where Next?

Given all the changes at the top over the first three weekends of competition, we can only expect the same at this weekend’s World Championships in Berlin.  This event officially kicks off the Paris 2024 Olympic Games qualification, so you can expect everyone to be at this competition, including SNGLRTY.

We will be there and handing out prizes on the podium to the winners of the Recurve Competitions.  If you want to see one of our 2023 Archery World Championship Watches, track down Daniel; he will be happy to show you one!  We have had quite a journey to get these watches to the podium, but I will share that story in another post.  For the moment, we are just happy that we made the deadline.

What Else Is Happening?

Behind the scenes, we are making more changes.  I have already spoken about our desire to stop funding organizations that seem to be working against the best interests of free speech.  Whether we agree with what is being said or not, everyone must have the opportunity to have their voice heard.  That is how we can stumble forward.

It is beyond disheartening to start to see the level of censorship at the hands of large social media organizations over the last three years.  All this media manipulation has occurred at the behest of politicians for political gain.  The one thing I am sure of is that those least qualified to identify the truth are politicians. 

If you think I am making this up, please look at some of the work that has been done to try and Silence the likes of Alex Berenson in the USA, or the admission of Facebook that they would censor anything the politicians asked them to.  In my book, this is not good, whatever way you look at it.

Random Time

So, for us, it is time to move on.  The key is to find platforms that at the very least, will not seek to censor speech unless proven to be illegal in a court of law.  The first move has already happened, I have opened a Substack account.  I have named this account “Random Time” and will feature mostly these blog posts.  So if you see a reference to our Substack account and are on our blog email list, you are not missing anything. 

Now, if you prefer to read on Substack, please feel free to sign up over there, and you can unsubscribe from here.  Whatever happens, SNGLRTY will remain focused on each moment.  The joy of now and celebrating everyone’s individuality, whether in speech or their choice of watches!

We have plans for more changes, but these will happen over time as we see where this great global debate takes us, and my time allows, between developing and making watches!

And in the spirit of free speech, all comments are welcome below.

Swiss Made

SNGLRTY was only possible because of all the watch innovators that went before us and the accumulation of their skills and knowledge in Switzerland. We celebrate their achievements by being proud that each of our watches is “Made In Switzerland” so you can be confident that it is engineered and assembled with longevity in mind.

We are so confident that you will enjoy Seeing Time Differently every single watch comes with our Money Back Guarantee so you can buy with confidence. If you have any concerns after your purchase, just let us know within 30 days of delivery and we will refund your money. After all, Daniel and Steve want everyone to enjoy wearing SNGLRTY on their wrist.

Free International Shipping

UPS will whisk your beautiful new SNGLRTY watch from Bern, Switzerland to your front door – and you will be able to track it every step of the way and reduce your waiting to the minimum.

2 Year International Warranty

Where ever you are, if there is a problem with your watch (and we seriously doubt there will be), we will make sure it is put right so you can buy your SNGLRTY watch without any worries, wherever you live.

Hour Numerals Color

I like to think the color of the hour numerals creates the personality of your SNGLRTY watch. We have the basics, black and white, but if you would like to have your watch glow in the dark we offer a range of colors in Swiss Super-LumiNova. We always use Grade X1 for the best luminous effect but the daytime colors do impact the ultimate performance of the Super-LumiNova. If you want the brightest possible luminous effect choose Swiss Super-Luminova White, and if you want more please contact us.

Color Of The Hour Ring

The hour ring is the largest surface area on the SNGLRTY watch face so sets the tone for the rest of your design.

Date Display

Each of our watches can be configured with a date display, or without. Due to the mechanics this is the first decision you need to make in your journey to create your SNGLRTY watch.

Comparison Ohi2 vs. Ohi4

The OHI movements, or One Hand Indication, are unique to SNGLRTY. During the development phase of the watches Daniel and Steve used this moniker before naming it SNGLRTY. There are two distinctive movements to choose from, OHI-2 and OHI-4.

The OHI-4 movement is built on the Decorated and Fully Adjusted SW-300 tractor movement from Sellita. On top of the tractor movement the SNGLRTY complication plate is assembled and incorporates the “reverse minute gearbox” that is available exclusively from SNGLRTY. Depending on your selection, the complication plate will also relocate the date wheel from the top of the tractor movement to the top of the complication plate. Relocating it in this manner increases the size of the date disc and moves it closer to the top of the watch face improving its readability considerably.
The OHI-2 movement is the same as the OHI-4 movement except that it is built on a standard execution Sellita SW-200 movement.

Finally, depending on the movement you select the watch case will have a different profile as the OHI-4 movement is thinner than the OHI-2 movement. The key differences are that the case for the OHI-4 movement has a double domed crystal and a flat caseback. The OHI-2 case has a flat crystal and a curved caseback.
