Singer Vehicle Design take older 911s from 1969 to 1989 and refresh them into something completely unique and amazing. This is a complete ‘refresh’ process which targets the appearance of those early 911 RSRs and Carrera RS from the late 60s/early 70s. In actuality, i gotta say that the Singer 911 almost looks better than those originals.
according to them:
“The Singer 911 is no mere imitation, clone or retro-hot rod, but a re-interpretation and rebirth of theearly performance-focused 911’s. The new vehicle is the result of a fusion between the purity of the original 911 and modern materials, design, and updated technologies, and aftermarket experience into a unique sports car that recaptures the essence of the early 911’s golden age. The Singer 911 capitalizes on the 40 years of solutions and enhancements that have resulted from the racing aftermarket’s embracing the original 911. Borrowing the best elements from the air/oil cooled 911’s long production span such as the “chic” of the long hood pre-’74 race specials, and the engineering durability of the later cars from the 80’s and 90’s, Singer Vehicle Design capitalizes on the vast know how and evolutionary advances the original 911 has enjoyed. The experience offered by the new Singer 911 is a passionate celebration of the history making, iconic 911, and creates an enhanced sportscar that honors the original 911’s soul.”

My favourite watchmaker is definitely Tag Heuer. I love my Monza very much so. However i’ve been wearing my Monza every single day for the past 3 years, and today I decided to pick up a ‘cheap’ watch for under $100, that I can use sometimes to give the Heuer a break…..i’m really picky when it comes to watches—so finding a ‘back up’ ain’t so easy.
So for a mere $50, I picked up a carbon fiber tinged Carrera Athletic Three Hand.
I’m very impressed by the amount of quality they have packed into a lower priced watch. I think suggested retail for these watches is around $100….but if you have a look around the net, you can find em floating anywhere between $50 and $75. I haven’t seen alot of them in person, however I gotta say that on first impression, to an outsider, this definitely looks worth MUCH more than $50. Great stuff.
Here’s the watch I bought, followed by a link to the Carrera Time website, which has a full catalog online.
