HYT HASTROID Blue Star Limited Edition

The newly launched HYT HASTROID Blue Star is a limited edition watch featuring a magnesium case with a subtle metallic blue gradient.

HYT HASTROID Blue Star Limited Edition

This new model is an evolution of the HYT HASTROID watch launched in 2022. The Hastroid’s case has a diameter of 48 mm, a lug-to-lug distance of 52.3 mm, and a thickness of 13.3 mm. It has so far been crafted from advanced noble materials: titanium; titanium and carbon; and an original alloy of stabilized bronze and carbon.

Proposed in limited edition of 20 pieces, the new HASTROID Blue Star is made of magnesium, a material rarely used in watchmaking.

Magnesium is 2.6 times lighter than titanium but it is extremely strong; at the same time it is extremely difficult to machine for watchmaking applications.

HYT HASTROID Blue Star Limited Edition

The magnesium case of HASTROID Blue Star boasts a vibrant appearance thanks to a special finish achieved with a multi-layer surface treatment. The exterior shows a metallic blue gradient, darkening on the lugs and becoming lighter as it approaches the center of the case middle.

The dial, extensively redesigned to improve legibility, features a large central hand with an electric blue coating and sharpened contours for an instantaneous fix on the minutes. It also features two sub-counters: small seconds at left side and power reserve at the right.

The same attention to aesthetics and legibility was applied to the fluid used for the retrograde time indication. The particular luminescence of the blue liquid achieved here ensures that the hours pop and are equally easy to read, by day and by night.

HYT HASTROID Blue Star Limited Edition

For contrast and clarity, a capillary dial topped with white Super-LumiNova® is positioned under the fluidic light. The hour markers around the chapter ring are made from blocks of Super-LumiNova®.

Water-resistant to 30 meters, the HASTROID Blue Star also features a central titanium container to protect the movement.

The open-worked dial back and main-plate subtly reveal the components of the hand-wound mechanical movement. Designed by Eric Coudray for the HASTROID collection, the HYT Calibre 501-CM’s distinctive aesthetic is further augmented thanks to modern finishes with elegant satin brushing and bead-blasting.
