H0

suggesting the concentric waves formed by drops of water
repeatedly falling into the basin of a water clock

All life on earth is dependent on fluids. This truth inspired in HYT the desire to focus our attention on the continuous movement of a coloured and a transparent fluid within a capillary. This display system, as unique as it is complex to realise, gives the impression that it is levitating. It offers new and intuitive perspectives on how to read and interact with both time and space.

space and time are one !

The first watch brand in history to offer collections which utilise major innovations in microfluidic technology, for its new H0 collection, HYT has decided to rework its design. Pared down to the essential, only a section is revealed to provide a better understanding of the extraordinary sophistication of the systems within. Less is more… A fraction of the bellows is revealed through drop-shape openings in the surface of the dial. The minimalist design of the piece focusses the attention on the artistic, spectacular dimensions of the fluid display.
