HYT HASTROID

The hydro-mechanical watch brand HYT has now announced its return with its new timepiece, the Hastroid.

This award winning watchmaking company made its debut in 2012 with the H1, a world premier mechanical wristwatch with a liquid-based time display system. In March 2021, HYT filed for bankruptcy. In the same year, Kairos Technology Switzerland SA acquired its assets. Subsequently, Davide Cerrato has taken over the leadership of this unconventional luxury Swiss brand as the new CEO and Creative Director.

As its name suggests, this timepiece takes inspiration from the space journeys. It boasts a spacecraft inspired architecture. Made of innovative materials like titanium and carbon, the case has a length of 52.3 mm and a thickness of 13.3 mm.

Designed by Eric Coudray, the movement of this timepiece was developed in collaboration with Prix Gaïa award winning watchmaker Paul Clementy and Arnaud Faivre, the founder and CEO of the TEC Group.

HASTROID displays the time with retrograde fluidic hours and a large, centrally placed analogue minute hand. The colored liquid inside the borosilicate capillary tube indicates the retrograde hours. It also features a small-seconds dial and a power reserve indicator. The sapphire dial-plate offers the view of both mechanical and fluidic components of the movement. The redesigned dial layout ensures excellent readability.

This manual-wound watch has a power reserve of 70 hours. All analogue hands – minute, small-seconds and power reserve – are embedded with luminescent material.

Limited to 27 pieces, HYT HASTROID has a retail price of $70,000.

HYT Soonow Instant Rainbow Limited Edition

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.

HYT Soonow Instant Rainbow Limited Edition

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.

HYT Soonow Instant Rainbow Limited Edition

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.

HYT Soonow Instant Rainbow Limited Edition

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.-

HYT H5

Introduced in 2019, H5 is the latest opus to HYT’s revolutionary fluid time saga that unites science, hi-technology, philosophy, art and design. Using a design language focused on three-dimensionality and transparency, this hydro-mechanical timepiece reveals time’s passage in the form of a coloured liquid. Running steadily through a fine capillary, the fluid frames a multi-layered horological masterpiece where movement is the constant. The brand launched two versions (black and green) in 2019. This year, the collection welcomes blue and red variants.

HYT H5 Blue Edition
HYT H5 Blue Edition: This timepiece combines an array of shades of grey – from anthracite on the hour ring and flange, to a gun-metal bridge – with dynamic colored accents. This punctuates the layered look and highlights the core message that each tiny element of the whole is vital to seamless dynamic performance. A sense of vibrancy is heightened by white Super-LumiNova® under the blue liquid that shows elapsed time, and the neoralite hour ring. A bright red arc and a black hand, matching that of the second counter, distinguish the power reserve.

The H5 hydro-mechanical watch is powered by a propriety calibre, the 501. In this unique movement, a hand-winding unit sets a consistent pace. This releases precisely the right amount of energy for two contrasting immiscible liquids to represent the recent past, the present and the near future.

HYT H5 caseback view

Visible through the see-through sapphire case back, an intricately shaped cam offers thirteen different possibilities to adjust and index the hour and minute indications, ensuring they operate as one.

HYT H5 movement - in-house 501 Calibre

An over-sized, curved lever connects the movement’s collaborating elements. This orchestrates a complex chain reaction, whereby the caliber pushes against a regulating bellow four times thinner than a human hair to launch time’s next twelve-hour journey.

HYT H5 movement - in-house 501 Calibre

The HYT H5 is dedicated to measuring time in a way that draws attention to both its intrinsic passage and precious essence. An architectural approach, inspired by erosion, reveals the layers that create the whole in all its purity. Three-dimensionality and transparency invite viewing from all angles – by a generation obsessed with artificial intelligence and new virtual territories.

HYT H5 movement - in-house 501 Calibre

A domed sapphire glass is ingeniously curved around a bold stainless-steel case to simultaneously present and protect. Stratified metal components, stepping and sinuous lines support the design’s strong storyline. The innovative neoralite external flange, with its cut-out numerals further enhance the H5’s fascination with perspective.

HYT H5

The striking vertical digits appear to float around the watch during the day and start to glow as darkness falls. Created from one single piece of luminescent, Super-LumiNova®-filled, translucent material, this component’s complex production process involves 3D printing, molding, injection and subtle grinding.

HYT H5

Presently, HYT H5 is available in blue, red, green and black editions. Each variant comes in a limited edition of 25 pieces.

HYT H0 Black Fluid

This latest H0 timepiece by HYT provides an enigmatic black canvas to visualize and honor the flow of existence. This new member of the H0 family uses the power of monochrome to present a distraction-free view of fluidic time.

HYT H0 Black Fluid

This new all-black H0 model features black DLC coated stainless steel case and crown. Its black dial features engraved black opaline markers and numerals. The lateral numerals, minutes hand and seconds hand are embedded with orange Super-LumiNova®. Mirroring the outline of the sun, orange Super-Luminova®, underneath the capillary, charts time’s flow.

HYT H0 Black Fluid

Its domed, sapphire crystal instantly facilitates different perspectives on the passage of time. It displays hour with a black fluid. The watch’s mission, to attract rather than distract, is echoed by the seclusion of the bellows behind smoky grey glass.

HYT H0 Black Fluid

Any visual punctuation of the monochromatic whole is carefully considered, down to the finest detail, from the Super-Luminova® touches on the flange numbers and hands, to the ultra-fine markers on the dial.

The HYT H0 Black Fluid timepiece is worn on a matching rubber strap secured with a black DLC titanium folding buckle.

HYT Soonow Drop Three Limited Edition

Launched globally on March 12, 2020 in a limited edition of just five pieces, the HYT SOONOW DROP THREE boasts an audacious and lively design.

Following in the footsteps of a unique, propriety fluidic mechanism and the development of an intricate, skull-shaped capillary, it’s now time for an unexpected color scheme to turn heads. The anodized titanium dial of the SOONOW DROP THREE presents a turquoise canvas for a skull in burgundy and orange. This incorporates 313 pins in 18-carat rose gold and almost 1,000 high-precision perforations. Smiling out of the skull are rose gold teeth that engage rather than spook.

HYT Soonow Drop Three Limited Edition

One eye socket acts as a colorful power reserve display. The other focuses on the passing of the seconds, featuring “small print” reminding of the imminence of SOON turning into NOW. Meticulous micro-painting subtly frames all of the skull’s facial features, while Orange Super-LumiNova® here and underneath the capillary add an extra vibrant signature.

HYT Soonow Drop Three Limited Edition

The SOONOW timepiece by HYT reflects the times we live in through a dynamic and colorful union of art and science. These times suspend the present in a constant flow that owes its momentum to the power of the past and the promise of the future. Moving on is the norm of contemporary life. In the watch, this ongoing process is in the capable hands of the fluidic module that fuels an exclusive mechanical movement in seamless collaboration.

Recently elapsed time is represented by transparent liquid to convey clarity. The pending future adopts a sleek, enigmatic black. An architectural approach houses domed shaping, smooth lines and multi-layering. Written-out numbers appear to float above the skull’s outline, endorsed by perforated renditions encircling the case.

HYT SOONOW DROP ONE Limited Edition

The SOONOW DROP ONE limited edition by HYT pays a vibrant, colorful tribute to the power of time’s flow to create unrepeatable moments. Unveiled at a special event in New York City on November 7, 2019, this stunning timepiece is as individual as it is unexpected. Just five pieces are available.

The bold color scheme of the SOONOW DROP ONE, and the expressive skull, are a spectacular celebration of individuality. The ongoing, dynamic creation of time’s content is heightened by the product drop concept. This perfectly showcases rarity as luxury, as well as the importance of seizing the moment.

HYT SOONOW DROP ONE Limited Edition

Blue flirts with purple on an anodized titanium dial hosting 313 18-karat yellow gold pins and 937 high-precision perforations. The color green characterizes striking detail in the eye sockets and the atmospheric glow of a Super-LumiNova® rail. Lacquered neon orange carefully traces the outlines of the eye, nose and mouth openings.

All of the facial features in the SOONOW DROP ONE keep life’s vital transience front of mind. One eye socket is home to a power reserve disc in green, orange and black. The other eye focuses on the passing of the seconds; there the words “SOON” and “NOW” remind us of time’s transience more dramatically than the most reactive iris ever could.

HYT SOONOW DROP ONE Limited Edition

Like a drop of water, the SOONOW DROP ONE highlights the importance of the now, suspended fleetingly between the past and present. In an unexpected union, a patented fluidic module operating in perfect harmony with an exclusive mechanical movement, visualize this flow. Two partially visible, multi-layer bellows inject energy into the system. These initiate the representation of time’s transience via two liquids. Contrasting with the transparent fluid used to document recent time is an enigmatic black one, reflecting the unknown character of the future.

HYT SOONOW DROP ONE Limited Edition

Art meets science as three-dimensionality and transparency shape the watch’s identity and functionality. An architectural approach simultaneously depicts the passage of time and its capacity to accommodate diverse perspectives. Domed shaping, smooth lines and multi-layering form the structure of this head-turning piece, which sits comfortably and confidently on the wrist.

The passing of the hours can be contemplated via written out numbers that appear to float above the skull’s silhouette. Or they can be confirmed from a side-view thanks to being spelled out by intricate drilling, echoing the dial’s mathematical perforation theme. The SOONOW DROP ONE by HYT presents time’s flow as a meticulously executed piece of art.

HYT SOONOW Mexico Limited Edition

HYT has chosen Mexico as the inspiration and launch pad for its latest SOONOW limited edition. As the Mexican people prepare to celebrate the human cycle on the Day of the Dead this November, the five-strong series will premiere at three exhibitions – the EMWA Fest, Berger Fest and SIAR. These watches wink at the tradition of creating multi-colored sugar skulls, and at the Mexican flag, presenting their own visual anthem to time’s passage in red, green and white.

HYT defines the present as an energizing cliffhanger, never as a precariously suspended moment of gratification or information on demand. The meaning of time is the content we give it, every single step of the way. SOONOW showcases this dynamic view of the now as a mobile pivotal point between the path traveled so far, and what could potentially lie ahead. Immediacy becomes an open door. The past empowers the present; then they build the future together.

HYT SOONOW Mexico Limited Edition

Visualizing this flow is a patented fluidic module that works in perfect harmony with an exclusive mechanical movement, in an apparently unconventional union. Two partially visible, multi-layer bellows inject energy into the system to initiate the representation of time’s transience via two contrasting liquids. In the latest SOONOW timepieces, time already lived is recalled by a see-through fluid. Red then makes its series debut as the color of life to indicate the immediate future. The meeting point of the liquids, the present, may only be a drop in the ocean of life, but it is all we have right now.

HYT SOONOW Mexico Limited Edition

SOONOW by HYT is a joint venture between art and science. Meticulous mathematical calculation meets a multi-dimensional depiction of the human skull. In the Mexican-inspired watches, a total of 313 5N 18-karat rose gold pins make up the three-dimensional symbol of life’s cycle on a titanium dial. Punctuating the monochromatic canvas are 937 perforations. Mathematics and esthetics emerge as strong partners, spelling out the numbers of each hour via precision drilling, with the exact center of each word facilitating on-the-dot timing accuracy.

The skull-shaped capillary in this SOONOW quintet, with its many tiny bends and angles, represents a long, rewarding journey of technical innovation. Here it smiles at its Mexican context with eye-catching semi-translucent, green polymer teeth. One pupil mirroring the power reserve level peers out from a disc sitting behind one eye socket. Providing a twist on the concept of red-eye, this also turns red when its energy bank is empty. The other eye focuses on the passing of the watch’s briefest recorded unit, completing a full rotation in 60 seconds. The words “SOON” and “NOW” remind us that time is precious in a way that no living iris could. C7 Super-LumiNova® around the eye, nose and mouth openings, as well as underneath the capillary, confirms that not only the Day of the Dead has 24 sacred hours.

HYT SOONOW Mexico Limited Edition

A timepiece with a mechanism capable of defying gravity is indisputably authentic in its love of individuality. The design language of SOONOW is committed to using three-dimensionality and thought-provoking detail to add new perspectives to watchmaking – and time-telling. Since time lends itself to being contemplated from different individual viewpoints, HYT is determined its timepieces always should do the same. Sitting comfortably on the wrist this timepiece merges domed shaping, pebble-smooth lines and a transparent structure.

HYT H0 New Models (Khaki and Grey Dial Versions)

The latest H0 models focus on making time’s flow meaningful. Avant-garde esthetics, with a form resembling a smoothed pebble, a curved dial and the HYT patented fluidic module, are the platform for relevant functionality. Bold digits, marking the passing hours, circumnavigate the side of the case and glow in the dark. This expresses the H0 commitment to three-dimensionality. An extra visual dimension comes from smoky grey sapphire glass windows in front of the bellows that constitute liquid time’s powerhouse.

The new H0 model’s take on transience and transparency has two variations. In one of these, a khaki dial and rubber strap stylishly camouflage the DLC anthracite coating of the stainless steel case. Red and pale green complete the color palette, with the former taking on the essential task of visualizing recently elapsed hours.

A slate grey version, with a slight hint of blue, embraces a serene black case and bright accents on the dial for accessible timekeeping.

HYT H1.0

The H1.0 watch by HYT creates a beautiful space in which mechanical horology and fluid technology collide with each other constructively. The result is a timepiece that showcases the injection of physical energy into a patented fluidic module. As the intricate movement and multi-layer bellows join forces, time literally gains momentum.

HYT H1.0 watch

The H1.0 is empowered by three-dimensional transparency. Viewed from any angle it takes an architectural approach to visualizing the passage of time, placing the present in the context of the past and future, using liquids. All elements of the specially developed skeletonized mechanical movement collaborate closely to form the big picture of pure functionality. From the clearly visible power reserve display, to the constructed wheel that indicates the flow of the seconds, time is in perpetual motion.

HYT H1.0 watch

Positive energy emerges from a series of visible tensions, such as the shaping of the steeply curved case and the clipped lines of the bellows’ extractors. Even the side-view of the watch tells the story of time’s passage via cut-out digits embedded in the deep grooves of the case exterior. The H1.0 watch has a  water resistance of 50 meters.

HYT H1.0 watch lume

There are four versions of the HYT H1.0. Silver, black or anthracite (DLC and PVD) case finishes complement bright blue, green, red or black immiscible liquids that flow perfectly in time with the elapsed hours.

HYT H1.0 watch

All HYT H1.0 watches are secured to the wrist with a subtly patterned rubber strap and titanium buckle.

HYT H0 Diamonds (Red & Black Editions)

HYT has created a diamond set edition of its H0 hydro-mechanical watch that unites a patented micro-fluidic module and mechanical calibre. Underneath the drop-like sapphire glass, 1198 snow-set diamonds all over the dial give the impression of water droplets delivered directly by nature. The diamonds cascade down the sides of the case to form rivers circumnavigating it. Engraved numbers around the largely transparent case cast individual shadows to reinforce the three-dimensional theme.

HYT H0 Diamonds Red Fluid (Ref. 048-AC-86-RF-CR)

HYT offers two different interpretations of the H0 Diamonds. One underlines the vibrancy of life with red colored liquid tracing the path of elapsed time and a red alligator strap. Red detail on the hands and power reserve display punctuate the diamond ocean. Its counterpart contrasts the sparkling backdrop with black as a further stamp of sophistication.

HYT H0 Diamonds Red Fluid (Ref. 048-AC-86-RF-CR)

The H0 Diamonds Red Fluid version features a stainless steel, satin-finished case whereas the HYT H0 Diamonds Black Fluid model has a black DLC coated stainless steel case with satin finish. The in-house mechanical movement that drives this timepiece has a power reserve of up to 65 hours.

HYT Skull 48.8

The HYT Skull collection has been enhanced with a more compact model. The new 48.8 mm case versions is available in two versions, the first made entirely from pink gold and the second from contrasting gold and black DLC titanium. Both have a patinated skull.

The Skull has been an iconic HYT timepiece since 2015. Its boldness pushes the boundaries for a brand that stands out from the crowd, starting with its fluid time display. A new model has now been added to the collection: The Skull 48.8. The case has been slimmed down from 51 mm to 48.8 mm, perfect for more slender wrists.

The skull is patinated, a finish designed to enhance it as it ages. The patina grows with every passing second measured by the HYT device. More specifically, measured by the capillary, which hugs the outline of the skull – a feat of glass engineering.

HYT Skull 48.8 watch

The case for the first version of the Skull 48.8 is made from 5N pink gold. The hours are indicated on the outer bezel. The external dial boasts a magnificent grained effect thanks to its microblasted treatment. The strap is made from matte black alligator.

The second version of the Skull 48.8, made from pink gold (5N) and black DLC titanium, features an external dial treated with an anthracite grey galvanised coating. The cognac-coloured patinated leather strap, with a rubber core, comes with a matching cuff.

HYT WATCHES

HYT is a Geneva based luxury watch brand specialised in the manufacturing of Hydro-Mechanical wrist watches.

Launched in 2012, HYT H1, the brand’s debut timepiece revolutionised the horological market with the use of game changing fluid technology that unites mechanics and liquid within a wristwatch. The use of hydromechanics was a first ever in the watch industry and HYT was the winner of the 2012 Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prize, Best innovative Watch Concept (Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève). In Q1 2016 HYT opened its first proprietary stand alone boutique (Malaysia). Based in Neuchatel, HYT SA is the sister company of Preciflex and the main brand under which the patented fluid technology is marketed today.

HYT H1

HYT’s Hydro-mechanical Horologists have turned fantasy into reality, mixing mechanics and liquid within a wristwatch. While addicted to non-conformism, these alchemists have drawn upon the strictest codes of fine watchmaking, and shattered them.

By achieving the incredible challenge of indicating the time with water, they have not so much propelled a new UFO into the watchmaking stratosphere, as they have in fact pulverized all certainties by uniting two worlds that are supposedly diametrically opposed. Never since the water clocks of the pharaohs, have the laws of gravity been overcome to transpose this energy in a portable watch.

The Principle
Two flexible reservoirs with a capillary attached at each end. In one, a coloured liquid; in the other, a transparent one. Keeping them apart is the repulsion force of the molecules in each fluid. The hours are indicated by the coloured liquid released from a flexible reservoir compressed by a piston. These reservoirs, or bellows, are located at six o’clock and are made from a supple alloy. The first coloured liquid travels through the capillary pushing the transparent one back into its own reservoir and then returning to its original position at six o’clock in what is referred to as a retrograde manner. The two reservoirs at 06:00. While the first compresses, the second expands, and the other way round, resulting in the movement of the liquid in the capillary. As the hours go by, the coloured liquid advances. The meniscus, in the shape of a half moon, marks the separation point with the other fluid in the tube, indicating the time. At 18:00, the coloured liquid comes back to its original position, going backwards.

The secret that gets the reservoirs going? Two bellows made of a highly resistant, flexible alloy, each driven by a piston. And this is where watchmaking comes in to activate the system.

How The First Hybrid Mechanical-Fluid Watch Was Born?
In 2002, during Swiss national exhibition, Lucien Vouillamoz brought forward an idea of designing a water watch and discussed its possibility with his friends. However there was no technical solution existed to replace the gravitational energy used in clepsydras or water clocks within a wearable, water-resistant wristwatch. The utopic idea was swiftly put on hold in the absence of a technical solution.

After some years, Lucien Vouillamoz reconsidered his concept from a different angle – namely to create a fluid indicator of time, that is small and transportable and can be used in different ways, rather than a simple “water wristwatch”. This thought process led him to a completely new idea – involving using two flexible reservoirs attached to each end of the same capillary. This closed system comprised different coloured, non-miscible liquids in each reservoir. By compressing the first, its fluid is pushed into the capillary and indicates the time, while the other liquid expands in the second reservoir. The separation between the two liquids is ensured by the positive and negative polarity of the molecules in both, which would make them repel each other’s edges like two magnets. No need for a piston in the tube. The questions of energy and congestion were solved in one go. The idea behind the First Hybrid Mechanical-Fluid Watch was born.

Seeing the potential of this idea, Lucien Vouillamoz called upon his long time friend, Patrick Berdoz, a serial entrepreneur and business angel highly experienced in the realm of intellectual property and launching innovative projects. After verifying the concept and conducting due diligence with his team of engineers, the latter invested the necessary funds for the initial validations of the project and made his team of specialists available to Lucien. Together, they conducted the prior research and developed the first technical specifications, the first designs, and the preliminary registrations. The results were promising. Patrick continued to finance the entire project. Simultaneously, he contacted his friend Emmanuel Savioz. This specialist in the domain of high-tech start-ups was made responsible for the creation of HYT and raising the funds required to finance a prototype. Patrick also invited him to join him and Lucien in founding and sitting on the board of HYT and its sister company, Preciflex.

Following a year of R&D, the first prototype was created. The time was accurately indicated thanks to a rectangular capillary measuring 1.7/03mm, machined in a circle between two layers of plexiglass making up the watch glass. Created using rolling membranes, the flexible reservoirs are trapped in transparent cylinders. The force required to move the liquid is transmitted by a cam, which replaces the hour hand. The concept was demonstrated and the patents registered by Preciflex.

A key meeting with Vincent Perriard, who is crazy about watchmaking and already been involved in an attempt to use fluids – which actually won the 2008 Design Watch Prize at the prestigious Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix.

Now the idea of a rectangular capillary machined into plexiglas became a thing of the past, and was replaced by a borosilicate glass capillary around 11 cm in length with a tiny internal diameter of just 1 mm, an independent capillary through which the time can be read. Instead of flowing from rolling membranes, the fluids now come from high- strength, ultra-flexible bellows (technology used by NASA) which act as pistons to enable the fluid to move inside the capillary.

To develop the movement for the First Hybrid Mechanical-Fluid Watch, HYT turned to Jean-François Mojon and his team at Chronode. For the liquid part, he advised Lucien Vouillamoz who pilots the reliability trials and the production, in conjunction with Helbling Technik. Meanwhile, CEO and HYT partner Vincent Perriard entrusted the design of the First Hybrid Mechanical-Fluid Watch to the Etude de Style design company, headed by Sébastien Perret.

Vincent Perriard obtained his movements from Chronode, while Preciflex, under the supervision of Lucien Vouillamoz, supplied the liquid components. The alchemy between these two unlikely worlds works perfectly. A year later, the first hybrid mechanical-fluid watch was emerged.

HYT H0 Querétaro

The HYT H0 Querétaro watch takes inspiration from Acueducto de Querétaro, the eighteenth century Mexican aqueduct built to bring drinking water to citizens. Just as a sideways glance at one of the aqueduct’s 74 arches stretching some 30 meters skywards is breathtaking, so is one at the watch’s 18.7 mm high case.

HYT H0 Querétaro watch

The H0 Querétaro exclusive limited edition has a pure white outline of the iconic aqueduct’s arches circuiting the side of its black case. Vibrant green fluid flows above this beautifully suggested structure, measuring recently elapsed time on its almost circular journey.

HYT H0 Querétaro watch

Anchoring the inspiration is a black dial with a green map of Querétaro province floating above the two partially visible bellows of the patented fluidic module. Even the black rubber strap is patterned with its own replication of a precisely orchestrated rain shower.

HYT H0 Querétaro

Recently awarded the Red Dot for design, the HYT H0 watches all express the brand’s defining focus on the fluidity of time. Fluid technology meets mechanical horology in a union that reaches reassuringly across past, present and future moments. Various design elements echo the theme of flow, from a drop-like, magnifying sapphire glass dome to concave counters portraying the outward motion caused by descending droplets of water breaking surface tension. The H0 Querétaro has water resistance to 30 meters and a power reserve of 65 hours.

HYT H0 X Eau Rouge

In the H0 X Eau Rouge timepiece, the color red alludes to the very essence of life, with its three primary functions of transporting, protecting and regulating. The H0 X Eau Rouge presents a live performance of the passage of time in the now, with a red and a clear immiscible liquid symbolizing two primary sources of life. A patented micro-fluidic module co-stars with an exclusive mechanical caliber to mirror the unstoppable fluidity of time, the vital source of the HYT brand.

HYT H0 X Eau Rouge

In the H0 X Eau Rouge, the essential inspiration of flowing liquid finds clear expression in form and function. Its overall shape resembles an exquisite pebble that moving water has smoothed to perfection over time. A cloche-like sapphire glass swells the necessary function of protection into a beautiful, water-inspired form and transporter of transparency. Concave counters on the gently curved dial suggest the outward motion caused by descending droplets of water breaking the surface tension.

The color of energy and passion runs through the entire design of the H0 X Eau Rouge, anchoring it to timeless natural truths and transient trends. Red rubber straps, red minute and second hands and stainless steel crowns sheathed in red contrast dynamically with 48.8 mm cases in two shades of grey.

One is stainless steel with an alluring gleam; the other is DLC anthracite stainless steel with an urban edge. The watch has a power reserve of 65 hours.

HYT H0 Blue Night

Time is a river. The H0 Blue Night by HYT turns this elemental maxim into poetry in motion. A patented fluidic module enables blue liquid to express the time that has flowed through the wearer’s recent past – and clear liquid to symbolize the waters that lie just ahead. This fascinating depiction of life’s flow is dramatized by the timepiece’s enigmatic black case, dial and strap.

HYT H0 Blue Night

Each glance at the H0 Blue Night confirms the central belief that context and content define time as the union of fluid technology and a mechanical caliber brings to life time’s passage. A drop-like sapphire glass dome magnifies this “theater” and makes the fluids visible from all angles.

HYT H0 Blue Night

On the subtly curved dial, concave counters replicate the outward motion caused by descending droplets of water breaking surface tension. And true to the nocturnal inspirational spirit, Super-LumiNova® coating on the underside of the capillary glass tube that houses the liquid allows time to be read accurately at night.

HYT H0 Blue Night

The H0 Blue Night’s black DLC stainless steel case, with brushed, micro-blasted and satinized finishes, has a diameter of 48.8 mm and height of 18.7 mm. It sits comfortably on the wrist as a bold symbol of buoyancy. A black rubber strap with a titanium folding buckle is a reliable anchor in any storm.

HYT H0 Blue Night

Two multi-layer bellows, seen through the dial, reveal the micro-fluidic element orchestrating the accomplished behind-the-scenes performance of a mechanical movement with 65 hours of power reserve.

HYT – H1 Antoine Griezmann & H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition

HYT presents H1 Antoine Griezmann and the H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition: two limited editions created in association with exceptional sport personalities.

Antoine Griezmann, the rising French international striker, is considered by his peers to be one of the best centre-forwards in world football. Racing team Panis-Barthez Compétition is represented by Olivier Panis and Fabien Barthez, two legendary sportsmen who have both risen to the top of their fields in careers which span more than two decades.

To date, Olivier Panis is still the last French driver to win a Formula One Grand Prix (on the legendary Monaco race track back in 1996); Fabien Barthez is the most successful international goalkeeper in the history of French football, he was crowned best goalkeeper of the tournament in the 1998 World Cup, and then went on to launch his career in motorsport.

HYT H1 Antoine Griezmann

The H1 Antoine Griezmann is a sporty, elegant, and technically outstanding timepiece, which is kitted out in white and blue, the athlete’s two favourite colours. The fluid time display system is a nod to his ‘energy gauge’. This limited series of 20 pieces features a central sapphire dial, flanked by a seconds counter and a power reserve with segmented display. The two-tone blue PVD and DLC titanium gives the timepiece a purity which Antoine Griezmann wanted to preserve, which is extended by a white Cordura strap with blue Top-stiching. The watch features Antoine Griezmann’s logo on its sapphire case-back.

HYT H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition

The H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition is a high-tech timekeeping instrument which delivers outstanding performance in all environments, both day and night. In this timepiece, a green fluid loaded with fluorescent nano-particles moves inside a jet black case, framed with a notched bezel in satin-finished titanium.

HYT and Panis-Barthez Compétition have designed the centre of the watch to express all the power of the endurance racing world, by picking up the colours of the steering wheels on their cars. The seconds indicator and the power reserve are therefore adorned with blue, red and green. The minute track is topped with a sapphire bridge, over which passes a red hand, guaranteeing the high level of legibility demanded of sports watches. Each bridge on the H4 is cut out to reduce its weight, just like a race car.

HYT H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition

Finally, in a nod to the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans race which runs right through the night, the H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition is fitted with the HYT light module. When the pushbutton crown at 4:30 marked with the word “Flash” is pressed, the timepiece lights up mechanically, making the fluorescent green fluid which indicates the time glow spectacularly, like a gauge.

HYT H4 Neo Limited Edition

HYT’s new Hydro-mechanical wristwatch, the H4 Neo model, is equipped with a light source. Under the dome at 6 o’clock, HYT has concealed two purple LEDs. Once activated, they flood the entire dial with light. At night, the fluorescent colored fluid and the transparent composite dial loaded with fluorescent nano particles are energized by this light source, becoming supremely striking.

At the same time, the wash of light flows into every nook and cranny of the mechanisms, literally bringing this skeleton architecture to life, and defying the laws of watchmaking. No battery, no electronics are needed for this process, which is fully mechanical.

HYT H4 Neo Limited Edition

Produced in a limited edition of 15 pieces the H4 Neo houses HYT’s proprietary skeleton mechanical hand-wound movement equipped with an exclusive patented micro-fluidic module and a purple light mechanical module. The massive 51mm diameter case is crafted with charcoal grey titanium and titanium DLC with micro-blasted finishes.

HYT H0

By taking as its focus the visual and emotional possibilities of time flowing as a fluid, HYT allowed watchmaking to enter the new millennium, whilst continuing to root its creative process in the very origins of time measurement. This manifesto has been further extended with the new H0 from HYT which, with the purity of its lines, encapsulates the very idea of a source code.

HYT H0 Black

With a large part of the movement hidden underneath a curved dial — suggesting the concentric waves formed by drops of water repeatedly falling into the basin of a water clock — HYT is re-engaging with magic and mystery, and with the source of life.

HYT H0 Black

The first watch brand in history to offer collections which utilise major innovations in microfluidic technology, for its new H0 collection, HYT has decided to rework its design. Pared down to the essential, only a section is revealed to provide a better understanding of the extraordinary sophistication of the systems within.

HYT H0 Black

A fraction of the bellows is revealed through drop-shape openings in the surface of the dial. The minimalist design of the titanium piece focuses the attention on the artistic, spectacular dimensions of the fluid display.

HYT H0 Silver

By basing the volume of the H0 on the circle, the droplet, and waves, HYT reinforces its belief in the fundamental principle that space and time are one. These primal curves are themselves inspired by a pebble, worn smooth by water from a mountain stream.

HYT H0 Silver

Augmented by a futuristic design, the minutes can be read via a hand positioned at 12 o’clock and the seconds via a small counter at 9 o’clock. The practical cutaway at 2 o’clock enables the power reserve level to be viewed.

This finely balanced assembly is magnified by a sapphire crystal which offers a completely new perspective, that of a side-on display.

HYT H0 Collection

The H0 is available with a supple rubber strap, with its fixings integrated into the case middle so the flow of its lines continues uninterrupted, ensuring it is supremely comfortable to wear.

HYT Skull Pocket

HYT presents its first ever pocket watch, the Skull Pocket. With this innovative hydro-mechanical pocket watch the young Swiss watch brand is restating its desire to invent the watches of tomorrow, using the knowledge of the past and the science of today.  The fluid technology integrated in HYT’s Skull Pocket sits perfectly with all the lines of the traditional mechanical watch, bringing these into the 21st century.

The Skull Pocket is available in a limited release of 8 pieces. For the first time, the light source module developed for its Metropolis model has been combined with a Skull.

HYT Skull Pocket watch

This module has two LEDs positioned underneath the rider at 6 o’clock. The micro-generator which activates them has been integrated into the case. It works by converting mechanical power into electricity. A barrel spring is loaded when the dedicated pushbutton crown at 4:30 is turned. Pressing this push-button crown then releases the spring and turns the micro-generator at very high speeds, creating the electricity needed to activate the two LEDs. This bathes the Skull Pocket in a soft blue light, and gives the green liquid its fluorescent glow.

The light lasts for around five seconds, after which the mechanism needs to be reinitialised. No batteries or electronics are required for this function as the process is completely mechanical. Developing this patented assembly, which comprises no fewer than 82 components, was a particularly painstaking task due to its extreme miniaturisation and its curved shape.

The assembly sits within a 59 mm case which was specially created for the Skull Pocket, made from titanium and black DLC titanium. In place of the lugs, HYT has developed an exclusive cover system to protect the dial. Articulated by a hinge at 12 o’clock, it is triggered by the iconic rider at 6 o’clock, which has become one of the brand’s aesthetic hallmarks. The cover features an engraved pattern with leather inserts, and can be fully customised.

When pressed gently downwards, this rider releases the cover, unveiling the Skull Pocket dial. For the first time, the skull is completely faceted in a contemporary design, subtly reflecting the light in an echo of the Clous de Paris stud finish which surrounds it.

At night, the light emanates instantly, producing a soft blue glow which floods the case and causes the coloured liquid charged with fluorescent dye to react. The time can be read intuitively around the circumference of the skull, via indices with Arabic numerals filled with SuperLuminova. The seconds are displayed in the left eye and the power reserve in the right eye.

The piece is attached to a titanium chain specially designed for the Skull Pocket. Its faceted structure, which alternates polished and satin finishes, was designed to evoke the aesthetic of the skull, in a tangible extension of its spirit.

HYT Skull Axl Rose Limited Edition

Swiss luxury watch brand HYT presents a limited edition Skull timepiece exclusively designed by Axl Rose, the legendary Guns N’ Roses singer.

Non-conformist and provocative, Axl Rose has chosen a HYT to adorn his wrist. For several months, Axl has been seen wearing the Skull model, most notably during the recent explosive AC/DC shows and the blockbuster Guns N’ Roses Not in this Lifetime world tour. The Skull Maori was his preferred version.

HYT Skull Axl Rose Limited Edition

The Skull Axl Rose is a custom model created by Axl Rose. The artist chose a Skull base which, under his direction, was given a Damascus steel style treatment. In addition, he requested that this was given a blue treatment. For a complementary touch, Axl opted same colour for all the indexes applied around the Skull.

Finally, he chose to affix two side plates to the piece (at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock), decorated with the Clous de Paris pattern and also finished in blue PVD. The piece has a resolutely rock’n’roll feel, with a bold strap featuring blue topstitching.

HYT Skull Axl Rose Limited Edition caseback

On the caseback of timepiece you can find the logo of legendary Guns N’ Roses. Underneath this sits the singer’s signature on the metallised sapphire case-back.

The piece, which features a 51 mm DLC titanium case with micro-blasted finishes, will be available in December 2016 in an extremely limited edition of just 25 pieces.

HYT Colorblock Collection – H1 Colorblock RED, H1 Colorblock YELLOW and H1 Colorblock BLUE

Swiss luxury watch maker HYT celebrates its 3rd anniversary by launching collection of vibrant coloured hydro-mechanical timepieces. Christened as Colorblock collection, this line re-interprets the iconic H1 timepiece in three colours: Yellow, blue and red. The colours feature on the dial, the flange and the strap.

HYT H1 Colorblock BLUE
HYT H1 Colorblock BLUE

The yellow version is the most distinctive, as this is HYT’s trademark colour. Dynamic, flamboyant and radiant, it offers an arresting contrast with the anthracite case in Gun Metal PVD. The blue version is the most subtle, featuring a glacial aura of a surprising depth.

HYT H1 Colorblock RED
HYT H1 Colorblock RED

The red version is the most radical and striking. It is the only version to incorporate just three shades: red, black (liquid) and grey (movement), with each of the other versions bearing traces of red on the power reserve and the second wheel. Each piece features a strap in a brand new, ultra-resistant fabric specially designed for these models.

HYT H1 Colorblock YELLOW
HYT H1 Colorblock YELLOW

The H1 Colorblock remain faithful to their ancestors (the first H1 was launched in 2012). It boasts a few details borrowed from HYT’s contemporary models, such as the black liquid created for the H1 Full Gold, or the minute hand developed for the H1 Ghost.

The capillary on the H1 Colorblock is partially coated in SuperLumiNova (SLN), which glows green in low light to illuminate it from below, allowing the time to be read “by deduction”: the opaque black liquid blocks light, while the clear liquid allows it through.

The H1 Colorblock is available in three limited editions of 10 pieces.

HYT H2 Alinghi Limited Edition

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.

HYT H2 Alinghi Limited Edition

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.

HYT H1 Ghost

The H1 Ghost has been designed around a new black fluid produced in-house by Preciflex, HYT’s sister company which is responsible for developing fluids for HYT.

An opaque fluid does not emit or reflect any light. This means that come night, it is invisible. However, so that the H1 Ghost can be read in the dark, HYT developed a unique use of Super-LumiNova: the material illuminates the capillary from underneath along its entire translucent stretch, beyond the black fluid.

HYT H1 Ghost Limited edition watch

In concrete terms, this means that in the dark, the H1 Ghost does not only display the elapsed time, but also the remaining time up to 6 o’clock. When it reaches this precise moment, the fluid performs its retrograde movement.

The aesthetic features of the H1 Ghost play on this duality. Day and night, light and darkness are constantly in contrast. The black DLC titanium case presents alternating brushed, micro-blasted and satin-finished finishes, but their intense black only serves to better reflect the light.

These very dark, nocturnal tones highlight the white hour and minute indices and the white power reserve. Although in the minority, they are the most visible, dominating the black with their radiant white. The minute hand continues the fight: entirely black, it ends in a luminescent dot. And while the black fluid tirelessly pushes back its luminescent counterpart, only the light alone is capable of indicating the hour.

The H1 Ghost will only be released as a series of just 50 pieces.

HYT H1 Full Gold

The brand new H1 Full Gold, like the H2 Tradition, adds a classic touch to HYT’s hydro-mechanical timepiece collection.

Crafted in Pink gold, the H1 Full Gold asserts its difference: the hour capillary has now been filled with a black fluid. This new colour is not simply a different hue of an existing version. It has been developed from scratch in partnership with Preciflex, the company responsible for all HYT fluid developments.

HYT H1 Full GoldFor the very first time at HYT, the capillary of the H1 Full Gold rests on a trough hollowed into the case and entirely coated in Super-LumiNova (SLN). Consequently, when the light level starts to drop, the SLN comes into its own, bathing the capillary in green light from behind.

HYT H1 Full Gold case back view

As the black liquid does not allow this light to pass through, only the translucent part of the capillary not yet filled with black fluid will be illuminated. The hour is read by combining the time elapsed… and the remaining time. This is a first for HYT – and probably a first in watchmaking as a whole.

The HYT H1 Full Gold is available in limited edition of 50 pieces.

HYT H1 ICEBERG 2 Limited Edition

Blue, the symbolic color of water, was choice for the HYT H1 Iceberg’s liquid when it was first launched in 2014. Once again, blue is the emphasis for the H1 Iceberg 2, the latest creation from the hydro-mechanical watch specialists.

HYT H1 ICEBERG 2 Limited Edition

The various blued components, as well as materials such as sapphire, beautify the mechanical complexity of this timepiece while highlighting pleasing contrasts – like a ray of sunshine hitting the tip on an iceberg.
