A new colour way option for the Bugatti type 35 inspired MHD “Type” range. The Type 2 features a white dial, lower chrome sub dial and machine blue hands that gives an authentic 1920’s feel.
Car designer turned watch maker Matthew Humphries spent a day sketching a 1920s Bugatti type 35 as it was raced in a hill climb, that became the blueprint for his new Type 1 and Type2 limited edition watches.
Matthew, the former Morgan Cars Chef Designer, found the raw exposed engineering detail of the famous Bugatti was the ‘perfect inspiration’ to create his new time piece.
As Matthew explained: “ I have always been obsessed by motoring and especially what I consider the golden age of motoring, the 1920s.
It was a time of high innovation, where motoring was truly established, designs were unrestricted by legislation and for the first time people were using cars for sport as well as for essential travel.”
And to celebrate 100 years since the roaring 20s, he has designed a new watch range that takes inspiration and influence, and pays tribute to the period, and especially the Bugatti type 35.
