BEHIND THE DESIGN
A blog style look at the MHD Design process
Be it a car or a watch, everything starts with a biro sketch. This sketch shows an early development of our skeltonised AGT case design.
Each MHD Watch design goes through a specification stage, where we pick just the right colours and finishes to compliment the design. There are hundreds of options tried before the final colour ways are selected. This spec page is from the SA2 launch edition design.
Its exactly the same process for Car design and watch design for MHD! We use the same principles of design for our watches as in matthew's design sketches shown here for the Morgan Eva Gt concept car that was realised at Pebble Beach Concours in 2010.
We take design influence from all parts of the automotive world to create an engineered design aesthetic. The SA2 design sketch below starts to explore how the three part case works together, and looks at different influences and finishes from some our favourite vehicles.
After the sketch stage comes the sketch model development stage. This was an early sketch cad model for the SA2, where there can be a long process of changes to make the watch functional, ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing.
As the sketch process develops, the sketch detail improves and because of this the form and volume development improves. These Sketches were a design concept for the SA2 case design.
This is a cad sketch model for the SA2. This design was rejected as it didn't keep to the original design intension of having a lightweight looking outer case shape.
Concept Design sketches for a future project !!! more coming soon.
