We All Want To Be Good Stewards Of Our World I have been on holiday over the last week, and it provides a very needed
“Let’s repurpose the wheel, but not reinvent the axle” was our approach. This was not a specific reference to the mechanics in the watch movement,
We left the first installment with Luc from the Crystal Clear Watchmaking podcast, having just discussed developing a new watch complication. It was certainly not

Daniel and I were honored to be invited on to the 40th episode of the Crystal Clear Watchmaking podcast to discuss SNGLRTY – The Patented
The hour ring is the largest surface area on the SNGLRTY watch face so sets the tone for the rest of your design.
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.
