Launched on June 8th, 2020, the SOONOW INSTANT RAINBOW by HYT reminds us the time’s intrinsic flow in a captivating, colorful way.
This multi-colored timepiece, integrating the HYT patented fluidic module, shows time and light performing their intrinsic magic, just as a ray of light interacts with water drop to create a rainbow.
Yellow and blue, two of the three primary colors, trace the paths of elapsed and future time respectively. The other colors of the rainbow spread across and around the dial with refined gradual shading. Light dances with 668 sapphires, amethysts and tsavorites in 14 color variations.
In combination with the violet anodized titanium dial, covered with 313 18-carat yellow gold pins, this heightens the overall radiance of the mesmerizing, three-dimensional whole.
The styling of the skeleton on the dial of the SOONOW INSTANT RAINBOW has a hypnotic quality. Its right eye shows the power reserve progressing smoothly through the entire color spectrum, as does the seconds indicator in the other socket.
Different monochrome Super-LumiNova® outlines, around the openings for the eyes, nose and mouth, draw gazes. And, almost as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the hoped-for pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, is a grin full of solid gold teeth.
The suggested retail price of the HYT Soonow Instant Rainbow watch is CHF 105’000.-
