HYT Hastroid Rainbow Limited Edition

HYT presents the new Rainbow edition of its Hastroid watch. This exclusive series fuses the brand’s signature fluidic timekeeping technology with a modern artisanal technique known as Techno Art. The new HYT Hastroid Rainbow is a limited edition of just 15 pieces.

HYT Hastroid Rainbow Limited Edition

Each Hastroid Rainbow timepiece is unique and exclusive, thanks to the dexterity of highly skilled artisans and the technical expertise of the brand.  The grille onto which the colours are applied is coloured using tinted Zapon lacquer, which provides long-term protection for dials which have undergone galvanic treatment.

Consequently, the dial on each Hastroid Rainbow watch is worked on individually by hand by Yan Patriarca, lacquering expert at MD’Art SA.

In the specific case of the Rainbow grille, a white base varnish was needed to obtain the required brightness. Only then could the pure dyes be sprayed on, by hand, in several very thin layers, each no more than 2 to 3 microns thick.

The fluid contained in the capillary tube is black and, when it moves around the coloured dial, it gives the impression that it is tinted in the shade assigned to each time slot. The effect is therefore constantly changing and serves as a modern poetic reminder of the ephemeral nature of the phenomenon of rainbows.

The minute track, with its graduated scale to follow the progress of the fluidic retrograde hours indicator, is also coloured in a special bright shade of purple.

A large central hand with a refined design enables the minutes to be read at a glance. This hand is also coloured purple to match perfectly.

HYT Hastroid Rainbow Limited Edition

It has two flight instrument-inspired sub-dials: a small second on the one hand and the power reserve on the other. Coated in Lumicast, these hands are black and red for improved legibility. The relief hour numerals are also luminescent.

HYT Hastroid Rainbow Limited Edition

Made from multi-layer carbon fibre with a profile in mat black DLC-coated titanium, the case measures 48 mm in diameter, 52.3 mm in length and is 17.20 mm thick. The crown is also made from black-coated titanium. The assembly is waterproof to 30 metres and the mechanical movement is protected by a central titanium case.
