HYT, the Swiss watch brand which introduced the concept of hydro mechanical horology has recently enhanced its flagship collection H1 with a new model featuring an ALUN 316B case with shot-peened and satin-finished surfaces.
Equipped with an exclusive hand wound calibre, this H1 model indicates the hours in retrograde style incorporating the innovative fluid system developed by HYT. The exterior of HYT H1 ALUMEN BLUE boasts all stunning features of a high end Swiss watch such as sapphire crystal front and caseback, screw lock crown and crown guard.
The highly complex dial of H1 ALUMEN BLUE boasts an innovative hydro mechanical time indicator integrated with a blue ALUN 316B hour dial featuring white indexes and numerals and a blue ALUN 316B minute dial featuring grey minute hand.
