THE BACK STORY

Introducing the new MHD SC (Super Car) DLC Black watch.

1970’s super cars were synonymous with Italian Car Designer Marcello Gandini.  Bold form language and geometric graphics give the designs a unique 1970’s feel. Gandini’s trademark rear wheel arch design was a unique styling flourish that became his personal stamp and would only appear on the most intriguing, unusual cars like the Strato’s HF ‘Zero and the production Lamborghini Countach. It is this signature styling feature and bold form language from 1970’s super cars that has influenced the shape of next MHD SC watch chassis case.

Featuring Gandini’s signature rear wheel arch shape, the SC has a three piece 316 L Stainless steel chassis case design, black DLC coated knurled central barrel case. The DLC Coating provides some of the properties of diamond to the metal surface as well as adding hardness and wear resistance to the case.  The case is the finished with a sapphire crystal glass with a 5mm bevel edge and AR coating (anti-reflective).

Taking influence from 1970’s style, the SC has a sandwich dial design, with matt grey top dial with laser cut markers, that allows the vintage colour super luminova lower sub-dial to shine through. Paired with vintage colour super luminova hour & minute hands and a fluorescent orange second hand. The dial also includes added complications of a 40 hour power reserve sub dial, 24 hour sub dial, and a date window.

Powered by a Miyota 9132 26 jewel automatic mechanical movement with 40 hour power reserve, the MHD SC is 42mm in diameter, 45mm lug to lug, water resistant up to 5ATM and is fitted with a 22mm leather rally strap with quick release spring bars for quick strap changes without use of a tool.

Additional features also include a sapphire crystal glass exposed case back with limited edition engraved serial numbers, (e.g written as 1/100). 

42MM CASE

With a 42mm case, a short lug to lug distance and a built in strap design the daily driver fits all wrist sizes from small to large
