DISCOVER THE H1 AIR RC44

DISCOVER THE H1 AIR RC44

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.
