The latest addition to the MATWATCHES line combines strength of character and a sense of elegance while retaining its military origins. A new wind is blowing, bringing a pure neoclassical spirit to the independent French brand’s collection.

MATWATCHES specializes in the manufacture of highly robust and accurate operational military watches – qualities that are based on proven technical specifications: an imposing 44 mm diameter, very thick sapphire crystal, leak tested to 300 metres.

Equipped with precious metals, regularly tested in the most extreme situations, MATWATCHES timepieces are approved by Elite Army and Police groups. Performance and reliability are the watchwords of this independent French brand. They are now available to collectors and enthusiasts of character watches.

The High Command watches have retained the distinctive DNA of the MATWATCH manufacture, with its sharp angles and refined dials, to ensure a superior read quality in all conditions. Powered by Swiss self-winding mechanical movement (ETA 2824-2) which is both robust and accurate, the AG7 has the unmistakeable genetic codes of a High Command watch.

With its barrel shape and 11.5 mm thickness, its case (39mm diameter) is highly discreet and comfortably refined. Its large dial aperture and wide strap also give it a conspicuous presence on the wrist. The High Command watch is perfect under the sleeve of a high-ranking military officer or a modern man who just loves things of beauty. Discreet but easy to read, refined but robust, it is ideal for use in the preparation of everyday missions.

With its intelligently designed, short lugs, it offers maximum comfort while the “vintage” design of the strap combines perfectly with the whole unit. The new features offered by the AG7 make it a mixed watch.

Both sporty and classic (39 mm diameter), the High Command watch is elegant and reliable and is a perfect fit for any wrist. In keeping with its competitive prices, Matwatches is offering this model, available in four dial versions, at € 1,350.
