H1 AIR BLACK PIXEL
H1 Air collection:
an airborne H1 family takes flight.
The 3 H1 Air pieces can hardly keep their feet on the ground! To begin with, they arrive together as non-identical triplets – the first time HYT unveils a complete collection of limited pieces in one shot.
Secondly, the pieces explore unchartered territory such as the maritime world or camouflage.
But the third and most surprising aspect to the air collection is that HYT presents its first classical piece! Are the enfants terribles of Hydro-Mechanics growing up?
Floating on air
The H1 Air Black Pixel is the last piece of the collection. Its sapphire dial has an urban camouflage nuanced with tones of grey. In this monochrome universe, the liquid, the seconds and the power reserve literally spring from their aperture giving the piece an exhilirating 3D sensation. Its case is in titanium black DLC giving this last piece a furtive, modern and powerful feel.

The secret force driving the reservoirs is two bellows made of a highly resistant, flexible electro-deposited alloy, each driven by a piston. And this is where watchmaking comes in to activate the system.
