Skull Krome

LET TIME
LOOK YOU STRAIGHT
IN THE EYES

The Skull Krome watch, HYT’s new extraordinary and unprecedented creation, breaks all the rules. You don’t need to be an expert to appreciate the power of its design. Even at first glance the Skull Krome watch makes a striking impression, simply because it epitomises and at the same time breaks away from everything that HYT represents. This unique watch is provocative, contemporary and has a bold design supported by the fluid mechanics that have become the brand’s signature style. The Skull Krome watch speaks for itself. Its development, however, was anything but obvious.

Recapturing the essence of time

The use of a capillary, which carries a fluid to act as the hour marker, is a concept that is already mastered by HYT Watches and its partners. However, any significant changes in form require extensive background work. For the Skull Krome watch, the skull shape of the tube, which measures less than one millimetre in diameter, was a significant challenge in itself. The issue centred on the capillary’s four angles, two of which are almost 90° at the base. These curves meant that bending the glass was a particularly delicate task.
