H1 Black DLC & Pink Gold

The concept behind the H1 by HYT remains defiantly the same, and as astonishing as ever! This new version matches pink gold with the black DLC titanium of the original. A hybrid wristwatch combining horological mechanics with fluid mechanics seems like an impossible dream, and yet… Two reservoirs take position at 6 o'clock. As one compresses, the other expands, pushing the liquid through the capillary. As the hours go by, the fluorescent liquid advances. The meniscus, in the shape of a half moon, marks the breaking point with the other fluid in the tube, indicating the time. At 18:00, in a retrograde movement, the fluorescent liquid reverts back to its original position. Overlapping the minute regulator in the centre is the small seconds counter that looks for all the world like a waterwheel. Revolutionary and inspired, HYT takes an out-of-the-box approach to time.
