HYT forges a link with motor sports through a partnership with Jean-Eric Vergne

HYT is proud to announce its first ambassador and latest partnership: Jean-Eric Vergne, the young racing driver who is currently competing at the FIA Formula E in London.

« Youth. Hybrid mechanics. Future ». Three key values that the Neuchâtel-based watch start-up wishes to promote through this partnership, affirms Vincent Perriard, CEO of HYT. Jean-Eric Vergne is currently the youngest driver in both Formula 1 and FIA Formula E and therefore one of the sport's brightest hopes.

Vincent Perriard explained that it took very few meetings with the young driver before he was adopted by the team. He is talented and ambitious, yet remains truly humble. Just like HYT, Jean-Eric Vergne (also known as « JEV ») has a passion for mechanics and, above all, for technical excellence. JEV needs to excel on a daily basis, as does HYT in its desire to revolutionise the world of watchmaking through each of the collections it presents.

HYT is delighted to support Jean-Eric Vergne on his latest FIA Formula E race which takes

place on 27th and 28th June 2015 in London, but also during the 2015-2016 season, details of which will be announced in the coming weeks.
