MHD have got their Type 2 automatic on the blocks and ready for March delivery. The Indie brand’s Miyota powered model is a great value design that’s been partly crowdsourced in terms of looks, components and dial colours, case diameter, winding crown etc. The MHD approach of getting potential customers involved in the design stage is a good one, as it makes you feel that you’ve helped pick out your ideal watch in some respects.
Each watch is a limited edition 1-100, and numbered. The case is based on classic art deco car designs of the 20s and 30s, there’s a see-thru casback, sapphire crystal and a natty fuel gauge style power reserve indicator. There are white, black and blue dial choices, plus a date window is there as well. At 40mm the case is spot-on for modern collectors and this makes qa great everyday wristwatch. It is kinda pricey at £745 and we say that because there are lots of indie automatics around with Sellita or STP Swiss auto movements inside at £500 or less.
If you love the looks, then pre-order here.
