MHD Watches : British Vintage Racing Design CR1 Chronograph Watch
“Few watches can claim to be designed by a car designer”
The MHDCR1 Watch. Your Rally /Racing Chronograph.
Designed in the uk by British Car designer Matthew Humphries, the CR1 is a 60’s inspired, automotive themed, Chrono quartz timepiece, and limited to an edition of 500.
The MHDCR1 captures the style of 60‘s / 70’s motoring watches, with it’s bold industrial stainless steel case, screw down knurled edge crown and paired with the infamous leather rally strap adorned by many a race driver.
Drawing on Humphries’ Car design background & style, the CR1 ties to the automotive industry through its classic design cues in vehicle gauges. The CR1 shifts into a modern, functional watch, with its chrono movement synonymous with motor racing, cut-out minute & hour hands for constant visibility of sub dials, and an unusual extra long second hand, which allows the rally enthusiast to easily count every second, whilst reading the tulip road book.
One way or another, the MHDCR1 has something to please the classic and modern motor enthusiast. If you’re anything like Humphries and have a passion for classic car rallying, this is a great choice Motorsports Watch.
