H4 Watch Collection
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 watch Collection tells the time. As for the rest, you will need to forget anything that has been seen, designed, or even imagined before now.
The chassis is a familiar beast. Since the start of the year, the H4 has had more ink in publicity than it has in its capillary. It is based on the same movement architecture as the H1, HYT's inaugural piece, which has been completely skeletonised.
A fully illuminated project
Only eagle-eyed enthusiasts will have noticed an intriguing detail: the presence of two push-pieces.
Under the rider at 6 o'clock, HYT has concealed two LEDs. Once activated, they flood the entire dial with light. At night, the colored fluid is energised by this light source, becoming perfectly visible. At the same time, the wash of light flows into every nook and cranny of the calibre, literally bringing this skeleton architecture to life, and defying the laws of watchmaking.
