Keeping Time S.6 Ep. 5 Marco Borraccino, Singer Reimagined

By  |  0 Comments

We are delighted to welcome Marco Borraccino, our guest for this episode of Keeping Time Podcast.  With a remarkably impressive background in watch design, including head of design for Officine Panerai, Mr Borraccino brings a unique vision to the world of exceptional watchmaking. Singer Reimagined is the watch brand co-founded by Marco Borraccino together with Rob Dickinson of Singer Vehicle Design. A former singer and guitarist with the highly acclaimed band Catherine Wheel, Rob Dickinson returned to his automotive roots with the founding of Singer Vehicle Design where he would specialize in the “Restomod” world of renovating and evolving older, air-cooled Porsche 911’s. His work is beyond exceptional and the incredible works of automotive art created by his company are sought the world over by serious Porsche enthusiasts and collectors. His work also caught the eye of renowned watch designer, Marco Borraccino.

Marco Borraccino is the co-founder, managing director and creative designer for Singer Reimagined – the brand founded in 2017 with Rob Dickinson of Singer Vehicle Design. We hope that you enjoy this insightful and engaging conversation with host Jeremy Oster, co-host Doug Hoyt and our guest Marco Borraccino. You may also enjoy hearing Doug show off his exceptional Italian pronunciation.

Listen in as we discuss how the relationship between Marco and Rob led to the founding of Singer Reimagined, Marco Borraccino’s exceptional chronograph inspired designs. We discuss Marco’s background in design and how the Singer Reimagined brand came to life and evolved. An integral part of the story is the chance meeting with celebrated, award-winning watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht (7 GPHG awards!). Serendipity played its part and led to one of the most extraordinary chronograph wristwatches of all time. Join us for a superb conversation with in-depth discussion ranging from Porsche to true haute-horlogerie watchmaking and the inspiration that drives a leading designer to create a legacy brand.

We would like to dedicate this epsiode, with heartfelt love and gratitude, to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. May she rest in peace.
