The H1 Cigar is the first customised watch from HYT and a demonstration of the almost limitless possibilities for developing unique cases which combine “polyepoxyde” resin with a solid element chosen by the brand for those special customers.
For more than two years, HYT and its partners have been working together to create a material able to integrate external elements chosen by future owners. Owners therefore can, under certain technical conditions, incorporate solid elements from their own personal universe in their HYT.
An HYT timepiece is where emotion meets technology, a rare and unique object. This exercise should be taken to its natural conclusion: offering to build a case which integrates elements with their own emotional weight, personal to each owner.
As a first example from the customised HYT series, the H1 Cigar’s case is adorned with the most beautiful Rodolfo Vitola cigar leaves. By creating customised unique pieces, each HYT piece will be able to reflect the passions and lives of lovers of new watchmaking and a close personal passion of their choosing.
