SNGLRTY Prize For Precision Hyundai Archery World Cup

Playing Catch-Up

It has been quite a busy few weeks.  You may not have noticed by the number of emails or the posts on social media, but that does not always reflect what is going on.  Well, certainly not here at SNGLRTY.
I am sure you are aware by now we entered into a sponsorship agreement with the World Archery Federation.  This means that SNGLRTY is the Official Timekeeper for the annual Hyundai Archery World Cup circuit and the biennial Hyundai World Archery Championship events. Our responsibility is to provide accurate on-field timing at all these events.

Precision – But No Prize

But that is not all; we have also created the SNGLRTY Prize for Precision. I thought there was time to introduce this special prize to all our fans before the first event, but events overtook our planning.   
The first round was the 2023 Hyundai Archery World Cup meeting in Antalya, Türkiye at the end of April. During the bronze medal match between Spain and Türkiye in the Recurve Mixed Team, Spain and Türkiye had the same points.  This had to be decided by a shoot-off. 
Each team has a single arrow, and the arrow nearest the target’s center will win.  That is when Elia Canales from Spain stepped up to the line and sent this arrow down the range.
Both timing and accuracy combine to create this epic moment.  One might say a SNGLRTY moment. 

Winning Team Shot

This was the winning shot. A stunning way to win any competition. The sad part is that however good and however epic that shot was, it does not count towards the SNGLRTY Prize For Precision because the Prize for Precision is an individual prize.  This is how it works:

The SNGLRTY Prize for precision was created to recognize the most accurate archer across the Archery World Cup Stages and the Archery World Cup Finals.  How do we determine the most accurate archer, you may ask?  Well, that is easy, it is the archer that scores the greatest number of 10’s during qualifications and individual matchplay and includes all rounds and shoot-offs.

The prize alternates between compound and recurve each year, with a prize for both Ladies’ and Men’s competitions.  This year, as it is an odd year, the prize is being awarded for the recurve competitions. Both the winners will receive a winning prize of US$5,000 plus one of our Limited Edition World Archery Championship Watch 2023.

Who is Winning?

The competition started in Antalya, Türkiye, and will run until the finals at the end of the year. The statistics are really quite frightening.  The current leaders for the SNGLRTY Prize for Precision are France’s Jean-Charles Valldont and Laura van der Winkel of the Netherlands. The statistics are amazing, Laura van der Winkel scored 62 bullseyes out of 72 arrows shot (86% accuracy), and Jean-Charles hit 85 bullseyes in total over the weekend.

What is interesting to note is that neither of our leaders won their class.  This is because the winner is decided in a stage-by-stage process, so the order the bullseyes are scored is important for the main event.  On the other hand, SNGLRTY is not so fussy. We love to see that arrow go into the bullseye.

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.
