At first glance the Matador is a complex jigsaw of gears and wheels, which are precisely layered on top of each other as a dynamically designed piece of aviation inspired timing instrumentation. The sturdy case measures 44mm in diameter with a carved caseback that echoes the turbine blades of the Rolls Royce Pegasus engine inside the Harrier. A hardened mineral convex lens with anti-reflective coating frames the mechanics underneath resting on the case bezel perfectly.
Each detail of the case has been carefully considered and exhibits a thought to the use and wear of the timepiece. From the beveled chamfered edge bezel to the crown guard and piston like pushers, the case is complete as a suitable shell from which the watch may perform fully. The dial itself is crowned with a “Grande Date” double aperture date display. Each frame for each digit has been carefully beveled and sits above an interlocking design of gears and wheels, giving a peek and the inner mechanics of the movement.
No detail has been left unconsidered. At the 3’oclock position, the re-engineered movement now features a disc display capable of a remarkable 1/20 of a second split time measurement. With chronograph seconds and minute read out, the Matador is a comprehensive timing device. Time read out is executed via legible luminous hands and facetted indexes. Strapping the watch to the wrist, the fit is comfortable and snug courtesy of well-engineered lugs and a supple leather strap with military influenced cross-stitch designed for easy wear and maintenance.
