World Archery and SNGLRTY have entered a three-year partnership for the pioneering Swiss watchmaker to become the sport’s official timekeeper through 2025.

SNGLRTY, renowned for its patented single-hand luxury watches, will be responsible for the accurate delivery of on-field timing clocks at the annual Hyundai Archery World Cup circuit and the biennial Hyundai World Archery Championship events.

To celebrate this partnership, SNGLRTY will release a custom archery-inspired watch to complement its staple of high-quality and individually configured Swiss-made watches.

Each of the individual winners of the Hyundai World Archery Championships in 2023 and 2025, and the individual adult winners at the World Archery Field Championships in 2024, will receive an exclusive Archery Edition SNGLRTY watch on the podium.

SNGLRTY will also relaunch the Hyundai Archery World Cup’s annual accuracy award as the SNGLRTY Prize for Precision. This prize rewards the archers who accrue the highest percentage of 10s across the season. Each SNGLRTY Prize for Precision winner will receive a cheque worth US$5000 and an exclusive Archery Edition SNGLRTY watch.

World Archery is the international federation for the Olympic and Paralympic sport of archery.

World Archery president Prof Dr Ugur Erdener said:

“We are excited to welcome SNGLRTY as the official timekeeper of World Archery and the newest member of our international archery community.”

“The sport of archery and the tradition of watchmaking share values of precision, control and repetition, while both World Archery and SNGLRTY are at the forefront of their fields, striving to innovate and inspire new thinking.”

“This perfect partnership will be celebrated in SNGLRTY’s limited edition watch – a first for the sport of archery.”

SNGLRTY co-founder Stephen Mansfield said:

“We are delighted to become the official timekeeper of World Archery. Accuracy unites both archery and SNGLRTY, for archery at the tip of each arrow, and SNGLRTY accuracy in each singular moment, so it is a great combination.” 

“To celebrate this exciting partnership between World Archery and SNGLRTY, we are excited to launch an official watch of World Archery. This will showcase the best of archery and SNGLRTY in one exceptional package.”

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.

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.
