The Story :
The MHD AGT Steel Edition, Automatic Timepiece, is the final edition in a special association with Britain’s Electric Car Company, Alcraft Motor Company, and its first car, the GT.
Designed by Matthew Humphries, the AGT Automatic Timepiece focuses on automotive design processes and was conceived by Matthew 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.
The Alcraft GT car for example has an exposed carbon-fibre B-pillar and roof structure which are very much part of the aesthetic but also serve as a safety structure. The AGT timepiece has similar exposed elements, influenced by the Alcraft GT’s internal skeletonised carbon-fibre structure. In particular this can be seen in the AGT’s exoskeleton lug design chassis and centre barrel case, reducing the weight of the watch whilst protecting the automatic movement inside.
The AGT timepiece has a 42mm diameter, four-piece layered stainless steel, lightweight, exoskeleton case, which is 12.5mm in depth and topped with resilient, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal bevel-edged glass. The crown and case layers are highlighted with beautiful automotive-style knurled and polished chamfered-edge finishes. Even the three-piece dial has an automotive influence, from the brushed finished chapter ring to the machine-turned, steel colour sun ray dial with laser cut markers, which is then layered over a lower lume dial for visibility in the dark. For extra visibility, MHD has even considered the semi-skeletonised hands with for precision timekeeping.
The AGT houses a Miyota 9015 automatic 24-jewel movement, which is known for its hacking function, which stops the second hand when re setting the time for precise time setting and its 42-hour power reserve. The beautiful Miyota 9015 movement can be viewed from the sapphire crystal display case back, which is also externally engraved with “MHD AGT”,
