In 2017’s rapidly maturing micro-brand watch world, it’s safe to say there’s no shortage of automotive-inspired brands and designs. What’s still a rarity, though, are designers for these young brands with any real automotive experience. MHD sets itself apart in this respect, with founder and lead designer Matthew Humphries formerly lending his creative talents as a designer for boutique British automaker Morgan.
His first collection, the SQ1 and CR1, launched last year and showed some beautifully clean lines to build on. This new piece, the AGT, does just that, refining the basic MHD shape into something far more interesting and higher-end.The new MHD AGT is something of a commemorative piece for Humphries, released as a special edition alongside his newest automotive design, the Alcraft Motor Company GT. (Billed as Britain’s first high-performance electric car, the Alcraft itself is no slouch, wrapping a state of the art electric powertrain in a taut, modernist shooting brake skin.)
