"The symbiotic relationship between cars and watches is a well known fact with enthusiasts of both. In fact, the majority of "Drivers watches" either take their name from the automotive world (Rolex Daytona for the track, Heuer Carrera after the gruelling and dangerous Mexican road race), or they have a shining endorsement from it (you're probably picturing the iconic square case of the blue Monaco upon Steve McQueen's wrist in Le Mans right now. )
However, very few watches can claim to have been designed by a car designer. Most automotive tie-ins come from a brand association, and thats about as far as it goes, but to actually have the same pen designing a watch that designed a car is rare.
Enter the talent of Matthew Humphries, the gifted young designer who, at the age of 21, became Head of Design at the Morgan Motor Company and can be attributed for the stunning Aeromax and Supersports.
After leaving Morgan, Matthew set up his own Automotive design consultancy (MHD), and then in 2014 established MHD watches to combine his love of design with his passion for watches.
Designed in the UK, MHD watches truly encapsulate automotive design with luxury to produce an elegant timepiece that would befit both contemporary and classic car lovers.
The latest addition to the range, the AGT focuses on automotive design processes and was conceived by Humphries whilst designing the Alcraft GT electric high-performance vehicle for the founder of Alcraft Motor Company, David Alcraft.
The AGT Watch and Alcraft GT car are a natural pairing, both products seeking to blend the ultra clean and contemporary with the timeless values of British design. The design language of the AGT echoes that of the Alcraft GT concept vehicle, with every element designed for purpose as well as aesthetic.
