H1 QUAI DU MONT-BLANC

THE COLOUR OF PASSION,
OF GENEVA AND
OF SWITZERLAND

Like many great ideas, the inspiration for HYT started with Man contemplating nature.
The Hydro-Mechanical Horologists’s story has evolved over time and near water.

In 2014, on the shore of the Léman Lake and facing the mythical Jet d’eau of Geneva, is born the H1 Quai du Mont-Blanc, an homage to our partnership with Montres Prestige, HYT’s first ambassador of the brand in Switzerland, located on Quai du Mont-Blanc.

AN EMOTIONAL ACCELERATOR

After indicating the time with a yellow fluid – the brand's DNA – HYT has taken on a new ‘red fluid’ challenge: the colour of passion, of Geneva and of Switzerland. The liquid adjustement was not as simple as one could think and took eighteen technical months to perfect. Its classical minutes dial preserves the heritage of the traditional haute horlogerie whilst seamlessly integrating the perfection of the high fluid technology. With its proprietary unique caliber, the H1 Quai du Mont-Blanc movement is further enhanced by the beautiful Côte-de-Genève finitions.
