Having made its mark on 21st century watchmaking, HYT goes right back to the basics and comes up with a trio of exceptional watches: the HYT H0
HYT has found a sweet spot where the past and future of watchmaking intersect. In this new collection of watches, it dives right into the past, to the very source and the very essence of watchmaking.
Time flows as a fluid. Is this not inspiration enough? The brand explores visual and emotional possibilities of time flowing as a fluid. Hence it roots its creative process in the very origins of time measurement.
All life on earth is dependent on fluids. This truth inspired in HYT the desire to focus attention on the continuous movement of a coloured and a transparent fluid within a capillary. This display system, as unique as it is complex to realise, gives the impression that it is levitating. It offers new and intuitive perspectives on how to read and interact with both time and space. 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.
The watch where less is more
HYT is the first watch brand in history to offer collections which utilize 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.
A fraction of the bellows is revealed through drop-shape openings in the surface of the dial. The minimalist design of the titanium piece focusses the attention on the artistic, spectacular dimensions of the fluid display.
The collection harbours a very 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. 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 excels in this creation of a collection where the purity of the design and the innovative method to tell the time, pays homage to the very source of time telling.
