岁月静好，但生命的洪流奔涌向前。HYT Skull 48.8腕表好比一幅让人过目不忘的画作，更似其中的点睛之笔，设计用意清晰鲜明：时光一去不返，务必抓紧当下。这一超群卓凡之作无时无刻不在提醒人们争分夺秒的重要性。其以液体方式突显时间的流逝过程，强调当下时刻的威力与能量——而这正是生命的真谛所在。
在地球这颗行星上，所有生命都离不开液体。这个久经考验、毋庸置疑的科学真理正是HYT力作H0 X Eau Rouge腕表的核心理念。在这一高科技腕表中，红色意指生命的核心本质，发挥着三大功能：传输、保护和调节。H0 X Eau Rouge以分别象征两种生命之源的红色和透明色不相溶液体实时展现当下这一刻的时间流逝。专利微型流体模块与独一无二的机械机芯共同发挥作用，彰显HYT品牌至关重要的设计思源：无法阻止的时间流动性。
在H0 X Eau Rouge腕表中，“流动的液体”这一基本的设计灵感得以清晰具象化：无论从外观还是功能方面。腕表整体造型好似一枚精致的鹅卵石——随着时间的流逝，在“潺潺流水”的作用下，其越发平滑，愈臻完美。钟形蓝宝石表镜不仅发挥必要的保护作用，如水般清澈、美丽的外观也令人悦目怡心。略微呈弧面的表盘上设有凹面计时盘——打造出“水滴落入湖面、泛起涟漪阵阵”的生动图景。
象征蓬勃激情的红色贯穿整个H0 X Eau Rouge腕表的设计，就这样，一款腕表，既恒久如自然真理，又时尚如瞬息潮流。红色橡胶表带、红色分针和秒针，还有配红色护套的精钢表冠——与48.8毫米“灰色调”表壳形成生动鲜明的对比之美。一款是精钢的本色灰，绽放魅人光彩；另一款是带DLC涂层的炭灰色精钢，散发都会摩登气息。65小时动力存储，确保“生命”生生不息。“好水最纯在源头”——HYT腕表亦如此。
这份“火热”专为HYT腕表的忠实拥趸倾情打造。H0 FEEL THE HYT版腕表不惧高温，仅在HYT Pop Up Store Miami Design District (迈阿密设计区的HYT游击店) 供售。每一枚HYT腕表均内置专利热补偿器，确保了液体绝不会因温度变化而膨胀进而影响时间的流动。这是一项不折不扣的专业钟表复杂装置，突破性的技术将艺术与科技和谐融汇，没有任何灼伤手指的风险。红色，火的颜色；2N 18K黄金，象征太阳的威力——它们共同发挥魔力，由此打造而成的腕表令迈阿密迅速吸引了钟表发烧友的强烈关注。

H1 Alinghi – 融合顶级技术，全面展现帆船和制表技术
“这款腕表是我们与Alinghi合作以来在技术方面最先进的腕表。”对于HYT首席执行官格雷戈里·多德而言，帆船船队三年合作关系的纪念腕表不容疏忽。腕表外观与众不同。H1 Alinghi腕表回归帆船本源：腕表继承了H4 (2015) 和H2 (2016) 腕表设计，借鉴了更多的帆船元素，是迄今为止技术上最先进的腕表。
“过去三年，我们非常有幸携手大胆前卫的腕表合作伙伴，他们能够将流体技术融入时间显示方式。在共同价值观方面，我们极其相似！在H1 Alinghi腕表上，HYT将绞盘、卷帆器以及索具等重要帆船设备融入表盘，再次表现出前卫个性。毫无疑问，其旨在致敬帆船领域。我喜欢这个概念，独一无二！”主帆平舱工Nils Frei表现出极大兴趣。
在HYT和Chronopassion之间的伟大友谊下，诞生了H0 Blue Night腕表——仅巴黎知名零售商处有售。
和其他HYT骷髅系列的腕表一样，Skull Vida的左眼显示秒钟，右眼显示动力储存。HYT特别折叠成颅骨形状的玻璃毛细管，容纳着两种不混溶液体。小时指示，便是两个液体的分离点。表圈的小时盘以黑色为主，米色的小时数字用的是专为Skull Vida腕表所设计的阿拉伯数字字体，强烈的对比下，又显相得益彰。HYT首次运用织物表带配搭Skull Vida。为了凸显生命的象征，表带上精美的刺绣以丰富的花卉作为主题－这是HYT向生命的致敬！
2016年12月12日悉尼 — 瑞士奢华钟表独立品牌HYT证实，它将参与为期4天的极限帆船系列锦标赛，并任命MAD & ASSOCIATES为其独家代理。
HYT发布了其参加澳大利亚为期4天的系列锦标赛的行程安排，并决定与品牌澳大利亚独家代理商MAD & ASSOCIATES携手赞助大赛。
The aesthetic features of the H1 Ghost play on this duality. Day and night, shadow and light constantly 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.
The H1 Ghost has been designed around a new black fluid that does not emit or reflect any light. However, 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 is proud to launch a new service : "HYT BESPOKE".
The goal of the HYT Bespoke team is to meet specific and unique requests of collectors who have their own, personal creative vision. HYT Bespoke offers solutions ranging from personalisation options to the creation of ultra-exclusive and unique pieces.
All of HYT's artistic, scientific and technological expertise are channelled into these one-off creations.
Each project of this type is built around a dialog. Intense, exclusive, it must capture the essence of the customer's expectations and personality. Depending on the request, creative meetings are held, along with visits to HYT's laboratories to allow the customer to discover in detail the full potential of HYT and its ecosystem – a marriage of creativity and engineering. The customer thus enjoys a truly immersive experience throughout the development of his or her watch, from manufacture right through to fitting.
Complete confidentiality is guaranteed for those customers who desire it.
Meet with our Dr. Frankenstein - HYT and Laurent Picciotto (Chronopassion) pay tribute to the 200 years of Mary Shelley's masterpiece : Frankenstein or the new Prometheus.
No need to say more, discover the video starring the H3 (unveiled during the Baselworld 2015) and Laurent Picciotto.
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?
HYT and Russell Coutts are not only partners. Since 2015 the creator of the RC44 monohull is present on all the seas hoisting their synergies for all to see. HYT is the only hydro mechanical watch and the natural partner for this monohull that is so prestigious that it has its own RC44 Championship Tour. It is the 10 year anniversary of these races that HYT would like to hail.
"Some people offer flowers, some people offer cakes at birthday. We thought we'd develop a new H4 for Russell".
The new H4 RC44 unites all the maritime codes of this race: blue liquid, technical design, the same colour codes of the regatta and an ultra-light carbon case like the RC44's hull. And the last detail that we will only see at HYT: A seconds wheel that emulates the golden bar that the monohull raises when it is winning.
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. ‘It’s a very successful twosome – just like the Alinghi team, twice winner of the America’s Cup’, says Vincent Perriard, Member of the board & co-founder of HYT.
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.
Swiss based HYT SA (HYT) and Preciflex SA (Preciflex) announced today they had successfully raised CHF23 million for the launch of a new suite of Swiss made products that are expected to be available on the market within 36 months.
Investors included the founders and existing shareholders, together with Mr. Peter Brabeck-Letmathe and a Swiss-based private asset management company as a strategic anchor investor. Beat C. Burkhardt, President and CEO of Tetral SA will join the Board of HYT and Fulvio Maccarone, Head of Private Investments of Tetral SA will join the Board of Preciflex.
The young Swiss companies initially set out to raise CHF15 million but, due to the level of interest from potential investors, decided to increase the amount of the capital raising. Co- Founder and Board Member of HYT and Preciflex, Emmanuel Savioz, commented ‘We knew we had the right idea, the right business model and the right people to make it happen. What we needed to bring the development and deployment of our technology to the next step was more financing and in doing so, we were fortunate enough to attract the right partners too.’
Co-Founder and Chairman of HYT and Preciflex, Patrick Berdoz, added ‘this is a singular opportunity for us to develop, grow and expand and we thank all our partner investors for this exceptional vote of confidence in our companies and in our people.’
The groundbreaking fluid technology is currently available in the luxury independent watch industry with HYT’s disruptive and innovative mechanical timepieces that use liquid to indicate the time. Launched in 2012, HYT’s watches are available in 69 points of sale worldwide. HYT was awarded “Best Innovative Watch” of the year by the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) in 2012. This Series C Financing will enable HYT to launch a new proprietary and powerful movement allowing case size reduction in addition to the introduction of multiple fluidic indications.
Preciflex has various applications in the fields of micro and meso-fluidic that can be utilised in industries as diverse as the horological, automotive or medical sectors. This Series C Financing will accelerate the development of a new fluidic watch for a wider market at different price points in addition to a new type of fluidic jewellery. The trademarked technology opens an unprecedented era of creativity in both these markets and it is expected that the new products will either be launched with strategic players or through a sister company under a new brand.
Skull. Bad. Boy.
Need we say more? The name really says it all. Its appearance speaks volumes, yet masks a stunning complexity. There's more to the skull than meets the eye!
One would naturally assume that the starting point for the Skull Bad Boy was the skull itself, unveiled by HYT in 2015. Not so. The creative impetus actually came from the new liquid which surrounds it. This is not a simple aesthetic variation. This opaque black, so simple to look at, took more than 12 months to develop.
To go with this new black liquid, HYT wanted to create a skull with the distinctive appearance of Damascus steel, used for knives and Samurai swords. The dial comprises two half-moons decorated with the Clous de Paris stud pattern. Its indexes are created in a Gothic font, complementing the Skull Bad Boy's hard rock look.
A year ago, HYT introduced its very first Ambassador, Jean-Eric Vergne from the motorsports industry and competing as a racing driver at the FIA Formula E. At the beginning of the year, HYT reinforced its position in the racing industry by launching its partnership with Peter Li Zhi Cong, the young FIA F3 racer from China. Today, we are happy to announce our latest addition to our racing family, Australian Friend of the Brand Chief Driving Instructor of Mercedes AMG GT3, Peter Hackett.
HYT is honored to count on Peter Hackett into its growing « Friends of the Brand » band. Vincent Perriard explained that Peter is a huge fan of the brand and, more importantly, he is a proud owner of an HYT watch, the H1 Titanium Black DLC that he bought long time before discussing about this partnership. Peter perfectly knows the brand as a final customer and he completely falls for the complexity of our products. « This kind of association is just unique for a brand. « Indeed, to have your final client as your Ambassador is the best thing a brand can imagine to have » Perriard said.
As Peter Hackett insistes on the video the brand posted on its social media, Hackett loves innovation, science, passion and technology, it’s why he chose the HYT’s Skull Green Eye for testing it during its daily life and during a year fully planned of races.
The two-time Australian GT runner-up is among the first to import Mercedes’ new GT3 challenger to form a new team to contest the 2016 Australian GT Championship.
Just like HYT, Vergne and Li Zhi Cong, Hackett is also fascinated by mechanics and, above all, for technical excellence.
HYT is delighted to support Peter Hackett during his Eggleston Motor Sport Customer Sports Racing AMG GT3 for the 2016 season.
Rule breaking independent Swiss ultra luxury watch brand cements its presence in Kuala Lumpur luxury mall, Starhill Gallery with a permanent store of over 1200sqft.
HYT burst onto the scene in 2012 with a fluid technology that revolutionised the horological world. Never before had timepieces used fluids to display the time.
After only 3 full years of activity, the Neuchatel based company offers its customers a palette of 5 very different collections available in 69 points of sales around the globe.
HYT’s South East Asia Hub
In October 2014, HYT opened a hub in Singapore a strategic decision to go to the very heart of one of its most important customer base, South East Asia. The Singapore hub serves as the region’s head quarters and supports the brand’s growth in key markets resulting today in points of sales in Singapore, Jakarta and until now a pop-up store in Kuala Lumpur in addition to points of sales in Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
HYT’s first eponymous boutique
The boutique in Starhill Gallery replaces the temporary store HYT opened in October 2014. A stark yet luxurious space, it offers its customers an insight into HYT’s world of fluid technology.
‘We have a fantastic location in Starhill Gallery Adorn Floor and wanted to make the most of it.’ says HYT Artistic Director Xavier Casals. ‘1200sqft of blank page was an amazing opportunity for us! We gave a lot of thought to the design and wanted to offer everyone who steps into the space an opportunity to live the HYT experience which is more than just about watches but embodies innovation, technology and the ability to dare and to achieve the impossible. We hope our customers like it.’
Partnership with Starhill Gallery
Vincent Perriard HYT CEO added ‘Starhill Gallery epitomises luxury and sophistication and we are very happy to be here. Starhill Gallery is an established institution and a trusted source of inspiration that, in the challenging and competitive industry of luxury fashion, adroitly position the brands it houses’.
‘With the opening of our permanent boutique we cement the presence we already had with our temporary store and signal our commitment to this market.’ Perriard concluded.
YTL Corporation Berhad Group Managing Director Tan Sri (Dr.) Francis Yeoh said, ‘Starhill Gallery is continuously on the lookout for dynamic and niche brands to offer its loyal customers; brands that offer something different, something qualitative, something unique. HYT is that and we welcome them to the family and look forward to further innovations and amazing developments from the Hydro Mechanical Horologists in the years to come.’

"We have always said that we would never create a classic piece. Having said that, this is exactly what we've done!"
Vincent Perriard, HYT's CEO, loves nothing better than exploring the brand's vast capacity for expression. From its very beginnings, the brand has blazed new trails, experimenting, creating, inventing... Its driving force — innovation — has propelled all its models to greater heights than anyone could have imagined. And now, HYT has reached the very summit. From this tempting viewpoint, how could HYT not cast a contemplative eye over three centuries of watchmaking?
"Fluid innovation is, and will remain, in our DNA", continues Vincent Perriard, "but this doesn't prevent us from playing around with the codes of traditional watchmaking. Fun, experimentation, the joy of surprise: after all, that's what we do best!".
Vincent perriard, HYT CEO, gets straight to the point – the skull, hyt’s new extraordinary and unprecedented creation, breaks all the rules.
When asked what the driving force behind the creation of the skull maori was, hyt art director xavier casals discussed the desire to further emphasise the skull shape of the piece by using a rare and traditional hand engraving, a beautiful metier d’art. Casals added that the use of the maori tribal tattoo, often associated with a skull, was another integral part to the concept.
For the skull collection, the glass tube is bent into the shape of a skull, and the level of complexity skyrockets because of the eight bends needed to create the skull. Normally, when a tube is bent, the inside diameter is reduced, restricting the flow of the liquid (think of a kink in a garden hose, for example). To avoid this occurring, hyt had to find a solution to counteract this reduction so as not to affect the precision of the watch. Hyt’s engineers worked together with glassblowers to fully understand how glass works, how it responds to heat, speed, angles and gravity. Thanks to mastering these factors, the brand’s engineers were able to reduce this undesirable effect to a minimum.
Watch the video and discover the H4 Metropolis and this light system!
The generator has been nestled between 4 and 5 o'clock. It is invisible, and activated by the push-piece located opposite on the case middle. The process is broadly that of a dynamo: converting mechanical power into light energy. It is the rotation of the push-piece at 4:30 that winds the generator. Pressure on this same push-piece then activates the two LEDs which bathe the Metropolis in a soft blue light.
The H4 Metropolis will be released as a run of 100 pieces with a titanium and DLC case and a black rubber base with integrated NOMEX© canvas strap, available from October 27 2015 previously at Colette in Paris and worldwide from mid-November.
The H4 Alinghi is the world's first watch dynamo converting mechanical power into light to read the time even in the dark.
Innovation within tradition, the DNA of haute horlogerie, the movement heritage, and so on: forget it all. HYT does things its own way, and discards these received ideas. Need a known quantity to hang on to? Good news: the H4 Alinghi tells the time. As for the rest, you will need to forget anything that has been seen, designed, or even imagined before now.
With an already imposing name, the H2 Aviator is the first time HYT creates a timepiece destined for aviation lovers which each step of its concept designed to satisfy aeronautical codes. The H2 Aviator isn't simply an evolution, it is a true transformation of HYT's iconic H2 launched in 2013, a piece easily distinguishable by its 'V' shaped positioned bellows.
We are really thrilled and honored to announce that the « Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie » has invited HYT to join the SIHH, which will take place in Geneva next January 18–22, 2016.
After only 2 years of activities, HYT continues its development and join the most prestigious Watch Show in the world. HYT is – of course – preparing an incredible creative year full of fluids and mechanical surprises !
In February, HYT announced its partnership with the RC44 Championship Tour, created in 2007 by the legendary Russell Coutts, 5 times winner of the America's Cup.
"For this occasion, we needed a piece that of course leveraged on our fluid technology but also ensured the performance and the lightness of a monocoque." says HYT CEO Vincent Perriard.
The H1 AIR RC44 movement is covered by a sapphire dial, another first for HYT. The part of the dial covering the bellows remains transparent to allow an unobstructed view of the heart of the watch. On this timepiece, the sapphire dial is adorned with a applied chapter made of a single piece of carbon, evoking the ultra perfectionist structures of racing monocoques. This H1's architecture designed in stratum, firstly with the movement, then the sapphire dial and then finally the applied chapter, allowed us to integrate new depths and a different volume and richness to the piece. Limited edition of 22 pieces.
Independent Swiss luxury watch brand HYT goes from strength to strength in S.E. Asia as its best selling H1 Dracula DLC steals the show at Starhill Gallery’s A Journey Through Time VIII.
Switzerland, 1 December 2014 – HYT’s very popular H1 Dracula DLC was named winner of The Favourite Mens Watch Award during the prestigious A Journey Through Time VIII, 21-28 November 2014.
The award winners were selected by an international panel of five expert judges, including Dr. Bernard Chong who has presided over both the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie and the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie. Announced during the 28 November closing grand gala dinner, the Prize lauded the Dracula’s daring use of fluids and mechanics in the same watch and striking masculine design.
Launched in September 2014, HYT’s limited edition H1 Dracula DLC was inspired by the unforgettable 19th century vampire legend and incorporates an unstructured red fluid on the dial and red veins on a sleek black alligator strap. Its 48.8mm titanium black DLC case has brushed, shot-peened and satin-finished surfaces. It has a mechanical HYT calibre hand-wound movement, 65-hour power reserve, hand-chamfered bridges and is adorned with côtes de Genève, rhodiumed bellows.
The Dracula is one of HYT’s 20 ground breaking models and representative of the brand’s determination to break with classical watch-making traditions with highdisruptive high-technology concepts.
Launched in 2012 The Hydro Mechanical Horologists revolutionised the horlogical market with the use of game changing fluid technology that unites mechanics and liquid within a wristwatch. The use of hydro mechanics 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 d’Horlogerie de Geneve).
2 years on and HYT has more than 50 points of sale wordwide. In the last 6 weeks HYT opened HYT Asia in Singapore, the brand’s first (non-retail) subsidiary to cater to the pressing demand coming from collectors in the region. This was followed by the launch of a commercial partnership with retail giant Time International for an exclusive distribution of its time pieces in Indonesia. HYT opened its first boutique in South East Asia in
November in Kuala Lumpur’s Starhill Gallery.
HYT CEO Vincent Perriard announced ‘we are extremely happy to have won the Favourite Mens Award. We know our watches ignite great interest and great passion in just about everyone we meet but competition was fierce!’ Perriard added ‘I got to meet a lot of collectors at the opening of HYT’s store in Kuala Lumpur and although I wasn’t surprised by the sophistication of collectors I was surprised by the consistent level of interest in our time pieces I encountered. Starhill Gallery Boutique is a great addition to the HYT family and will remain central to our development in S. E Asia’.
Collectors and Friends can visit the HYT Boutique at the Adorn Floor, Starhill Gallery, 181 Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.
