The hydro-mechanical watch maker HYT expands its H0 collection by adding the limited edition H0 Time is Precious model. The stand-out feature of this model is its stunning dial, comprising 63 mirrored facets, each lightly tilted at an angle.
Limited to 50 pieces, the H0 Time is Precious features a Stainless-steel case highlighted with brushed, micro-blasted and satin-finished finishes. The watch displays red-fluidic hours with the HYT’s exclusive patented micro-fluidic module.
The use of monocrystalline silicon and ultra-sharp laser cutting take haute-horlogerie marquetry into three-dimensional cubism on the dial. The dial features grey minute hand, seconds indicator disc and power reserve indicator disc.
The side view of the watch hosts the phrase “Time is Precious”, engraved front-on and in mirror writing around the stainless-steel case. Four windows of different shapes and sizes punctuate the dial. The two bellows that act as the pulse of the red and clear liquids that trace time’s progress, a power reserve display and a disc showing the advancement of the seconds are all visible. Signing off allegiance to full transparency is a sapphire minute counter and see-through rubber bracelet.
This timepiece was unveiled at SIHH 2019. Suggested retail price is USD 49,000.-
