For the second year of their partnership, HYT and Alinghi hoist their sails even higher with the H2 Alinghi which follows in the wake of the H4 Alinghi.
For the first time in its history, HYT has built an H2 with a full untreated titanium case. This is also the very first H2 to feature the new black liquid, unveiled at the beginning of the year. The H2’s caliber has been suitably adapted: for the first time, it’s been crafted in two tone black and grey; above it glides a brand new central minutes hand, drawing inspiration from marine-style hands.
The new interplay between grey and black gives the watch an appearance that’s both technical and elegant, further highlighted by the bezel rider tab, which in another first, sports a rounded shape to accommodate the Alinghi logo. Lastly, the hour flange has also been redesigned with a twin satin/glass blasted effect, making the hour markers stand out both more clearly and more gently. The piece is mounted on a new ultra-resistant technical strap in matching shades.
Maintaining its original diameter of 48.8 mm, the timepiece will be produced in a limited edition of just 25, available from June 2016.
