Effortlessly stylish – just like the car it’s named after, the C1 Morgan Aero 8 Chronometer boasts a stunning ‘dashboard’ dial design with the iconic Morgan wings at 12 o’clock. But looks aren’t the only story. The C1 Morgan Aero 8 has technical prowess, too: from the timing capability of its subdials to the Calibre SH21 chronometer movement that ticks inside. Worth taking for a spin.

One for the roads

The most elaborate of our Morgan Chronometers, the Aero 8’s multi-layered dial is both unique and uniquely intricate. The central section – azzuré-textured, and finished in opalin white – is surrounded by a cambered black outer ring that displays the watch’s Arabic numerals. Two subdials are located at 6 and 9 o’clock, displaying two different horological complications that have been added to our in-house movement, Calibre SH21. While mimicking the dial’s aesthetic, hints of red are also introduced: firstly on the fuel gauge-inspired power reserve indicator, with the other being the small seconds hand at 6 o’clock.

The Aero 8 Chronometer’s case is just as striking. Inheriting our signature Grand Malvern design – created by senior designer Adrian Buchmann – its 40.5mm size means it’ll suit all wrists (and fit under those driving gloves).

Calibre SH21 hand-wound power reserve chronometer

Calibre SH21 movement was designed in-house by our then technical director Johannes Jahnke and is the first commercially viable mechanical movement from a British watch brand in over 50 years. In this particular version of Calibre SH21, small second and power reserve complications have also been added.

Calibre SH21’s bridge has been specially skeletonised to reflect the advanced engineering of the Aero 8 car while revealing its twin barrels underneath. When fully wound, both barrels – decorated here with an intricate concentric design – can supply five days’ worth of chronometer-certified timekeeping. The result is a movement that sits in the top six percent of all Swiss-made calibres for accuracy.
