HYT X Alinghi, Act 3
H1 Alinghi – Boats and Time fly together with the best technologies!
The third watch to come from its partnership with the yacht racing team, the H1 Alinghi is the most technically advanced and edgy of the trilogy. Available, once more, as a limited edition (20 pieces), it is the height of understatement, efficiency, and performance.
"It is the most technically advanced of the models resulting from our partnership with Alinghi". For Grégory Dourde, CEO of HYT, the creation which celebrates three years of partnership with the yacht racing team is not to be taken lightly. It looks like no other. The H1 Alinghi is returning to its yachting roots: following the H4 (2015) and H2 (2016), it is now the most technically advanced piece, borrowing more elements from the boats which inspired it.
Another special feature of this model is that it results from a long process to assimilate Alinghi's signature design. "We visited the shipyards where the team prepares its multihull craft", explained Grégory Dourde. "We observed how the yachts were built, their unfinished and assembled components, their functions, their positioning.... Many of these elements found their way into the piece".
Without a doubt, the most striking of these is the rigging which criss-crosses the lower half of its dial. Custom-designed, it passes through four eyelets on the flange, before being secured to three central eyelets; with precision, nothing left to chance, a preoccupation shared by yacht and watchmaking.
