Skull 48.8 現在、再来、重要。

静物とは、動かない物体のことではありません。忘れられない美しい静物画に描かれた物体のように、HYT Skull 48.8 には、今を大切にするという精神があります。このユニークな時計は、あらゆる瞬間の大切さを絶えず思い出せます。液体を使用して時間の経過を強調し、生命の基本原則である「現在」が持つ力に焦点を当てています。

時の流れのこの魅惑的な舞台に立つカリスマ的な主人公は、頭蓋骨をかたどったキャピラリーです。この主人公が、特許取得済みの流体モジュールと独自の機械式キャリバーによって息を吹き返します。着色された液体は、過去への回想を象徴し、透明な液体は、未来の展望を控えめに表現します。この 2 つが表面張力により出会う地点は、重要な「現在」を表します。どの国の人にもインパクトを与える Skull 48.8 のダイヤルにある大きな目を見た人は、自分の時間の過ごし方について深く考えさせられます。右目の奥にある回転ディスクは、濃い色から淡い色へと変化して、過ぎていく貴重な時間を秒単位で表します。経過する大切な時間に注目させる間に「分」は舞台裏で刻まれているため、分針は必要ありません。

H0 X Eau Rouge(オールージュ) 過激、完全、不可欠、

地球上のすべての生命は、液体によって支えられています。科学的に証明されているこの真実が、HYT の H0 X Eau Rouge の中心にあります。このハイテクの時計では、赤という色が、運搬、保護、調節という 3 つの主な機能で生命の本質を暗示しています。H0 X Eau Rouge は、生命の主な源を象徴する赤と透明の液体が混じり合うことなく、現在の時間の経過を示します。特許取得済みマイクロ流体モジュールが独自の機械式キャリバーと共に、HYT ブランドの不可欠な源である、止まることのない時間の流動性を映し出します。

H0 X Eau Rouge では、流れる液体というインスピレーションの本質が、その形状と機能に明確に表現されています。全体の形状は、長い期間をかけて流水により完璧な形に研磨された美しい小石のようです。ドーム型サファイアガラスは、必要な保護機能を、水に着想を得た美しい形と優れた透明性で実現しています。わずかにカーブしたダイヤルにある凹型カウンターは、滑らかな水面に水滴が落ちたときの波紋の広がりを思わせます。

エネルギーと情熱の色が H0 X Eau Rouge のデザイン全体に広がり、時を越えた自然の真実や移り変わる流行との結びつきを示しています。レッドのラバーストラップ、レッドの分針と秒針、レッド コーティングのステンレス スティール製リューズが、48.8 mm ケースの 2 種類のグレーとダイナミックなコントラストを見せています。一方は、魅惑的な輝きのステンレス スティール製で、もう一方は、都会的な雰囲気の DLC チャコールグレー ステンレス スティール製です。安心して使い続けられるよう、65 時間のパワーリザーブを備えています。HYT の時計は、川の水源のように常に純粋です。

Skull 48.8:生へ、死へ!

Skull コレクションに、あいかわらずパンチの効いたメッセージを伝えながらも、いっそうコンパクトなサイズのモデルが加わることになりました。48.8mm の新しいケースを備えた Skull は 2 つのバージョンが用意されます。1 つは完全なピンクゴールド製、もう 1 つはゴールドとブラック DLC チタンのコントラストの効いたバージョンです。同じヴィンテージ仕上げの頭蓋骨が人生の大切さを物語っています。

2015 年以来、Skull は HYT を象徴するコレクションの一つとなってきました。流体表示をはじめ、他のブランドがまったく挑戦しなかったことをやるというブランドの大胆さを、このコレクションは究極まで推し進めています。Skull では、「メメント・モリ」(死を想え)という言葉や、人生の短さ、毎瞬間人生を十分に生きる必要性を喚起することに、すべての焦点が当てられています。これは死のシンボルである以上に、生のシンボルなのです。ちょうど、2 つの柔軟なタンクから供給されてキャピラリー内を進み、時の流れを示す流体のように。液体がなければ、生命はありえません。時間の測定もありません。今から 3 千年以上前、初期の水時計とともに、時間の測定は始まりました。21 世紀の水時計である HYT は、こうした哲学的な道具となっています。眼窩のくぼんだ頭蓋骨という大胆な形をまとうことで、こうした性格がさらに強められています。

H20 の目に見える計時コンセプトは、キャピラリー内の着色された流体と透明な流体の連続的な動きに基づいています。流れ続ける川のように、時間は決して立ち止まりません。この技術は、その中核となる哲学を反映しています。ドーム型サファイアガラスは、時間の進行を側面から魅力的に見せてくれます。それは、科学実験室の素朴な装置の記憶を呼び起こし、貴重品(この場合は「時間」)の展示ケースを想像させます。横から見ると、数字、マーカー、および矢印が浮かんでいるように見えます。それでいながら、いずれも極めて正確に支えられています。

HYT X Alinghi, Act 3

H1 Alinghi によって高みに達するテクノロジー

ヨットレース チームとのパートナーシップの第 3 弾となる H1 Alinghi は、3 部作の中で最も技術的に高度で、活力溢れるモデルです。前回と同様 20 個限定製造で、シンプル、効率、性能に焦点が当てられています。

「これは、私たちがアリンギとのパートナーシップに捧げた中で、技術的に最も高度なモデルです」 HYT の CEO、グレゴリー・ドゥルドにとって、ヨットレース チームとのパートナーシップ 3 周年を記念する作品には、真剣に取り組む必要がありました。この作品は、他のどの作品にも似ていません。H1 Alinghi は航海に乗り出します。H4(2015 年)と H2(2016 年)に続くこのモデルは、現時点でヨットから最も多くの要素を取り入れた、技術的に最も高度なモデルとなっています。

現場からの吸収

このモデルのもう一つの特徴、それは アリンギ特有のデザインを取り込むための長い作業です。グレゴリー・ドゥルドは続けてこう言います。「私たちは、このチームがマルチハル(多胴艇)を製造している現場を訪れました。そして、ヨットを組立てる過程や、個々の構成要素、その組み立てられた状態、それぞれの機能、どの部分に使われるのかを観察しました。そうした構成要素の多くが、この時計にも取り入れられています」

なかでも一番目につくのは、ダイヤルの下半分を貫くロープです。小さなロープはインナーベゼル側の 4 つのアイレットと内側の 3 つのアイレットを通って固定されており、時計とヨットとの共通点を明確に浮かび上がらせています。

H0 Blue Night

HYT の冒険はクロノパッションの冒険と深い関係があります。さらに言えば、「液体の時」という偉大な冒険に乗り出した最初の一人であるクロノパッションの創設者ローラン・ピチョットと関係があります。

この HYT とクロノパッションを結ぶ強い友情の絆は、H0 Blue Night という時計によって具体化することになりました。このパリの有名な時計店での独占販売となります。

両社の結びつきは明らかです。クロノパッションは、新しい流行のたえまない探求を通じて、時計産業へのアプローチを刷新し続けています。HYT は、流体技術を組み込んだ時計の製造に関して独自のノウハウを有しながら、その表現の領域は果てしなく広がっています。

バーゼルワールド 2017 で披露された Collection H0 は大きな成功を収めています。このモデルで注目を一身に集める流体は、サファイアガラスによっていっそう引き立てられており、側面と三次元の表示という斬新な視点が可能になっています。「時」は純粋なデザインをまとい、たえず進むブルーの円柱状の液体という形で読み取られ、過ぎ去る時間が表現されています。液体の入ったガラス製チューブの下に塗布された Super-LumiNova® により、夜間の視認性も確保されています。分は 12 時位置の針によって、秒は 9 時位置のスモール セコンドによって表示されます。一方、2 時位置の切れ込みからはパワーリザーブを見ることができます。

H0 : #codesource

地球上の全ての生命は流体に依存しています。

基本に帰るには核心に触れることが必要です。HYT は、その創造的アプローチの基礎を時間計測の起源に求めながらも、時間の流れを流体によって絵のように感情的に示す可能性に集中することで、本当に新たな千年紀に入ることを時計製造業に提示しました。この宣言の延長線上にある HYT の全く新しい H は、そのラインの純粋さによって根本的な掟を印象付けます…

HYT は、円、波、および水滴の周囲に H を立体化することで、空間と時間は同じものであるという基本原理へのこだわりを際立たせます。さらに、主要な曲線は、山の急流の水によって摩耗した小石から着想を得ています。

#SIHH2017: HYT illuminates the Skull Pocket

HYT はブランド初の懐中時計、Skull Pocket(スカル ポケット)を発表します。新しいケース、初めてスカルと関連させた機械式ライト機能、特別な仕上げ、8 個限定製造。Skull Pocket は HYT の開発に一転機を画します。

HYT は Skull Pocket により、過去の知識と現代の科学に基づいて未来の時計製造を生み出すという自らの使命を再確認します。伝統的な時計製造の最も高貴な遺産の 1 つである懐中時計がこのたび、HYT の展開と表現の新たな地平になります。この時計は、稀少でインタラクティブな物によって具現化された、現代的で型にはまらない生活術を約束します。

HYT の Skull Pocket に組み込まれた流体技術は、このように伝統的な機械式時計の輪郭を採用し、それを 21 世紀によみがえらせます。 それが、HYT が高級時計基金のパートナーのブランドがしっかりと組織するサークルに加わり、高級時計を型にはまった領域のさらに先へ進ませるその能力を誇示する理由の 1 つです。

自然なサイズ

Skull Pocket は 8 個しか製造されない限定シリーズで、HYT の最も贅沢な作品の 1 つです。このモデルは Metropolis(メトロポリス)モデル用に開発されたライティング モジュールを初めてスカルに組み合わせています。

このモジュールは 6 時位置のカバリエの下に 2 つの LED を配置させています。それらを発光させるマイクロジェネレーターは、ケースの中に組み込まれました。その役割は、機械的な力を電気に変換することです。4 時 30 分位置の専用プッシュ式リューズを回すと、たる型スプリングが巻かれます。続いて、このプッシュ式リューズを押すと、スプリングが解かれてマイクロジェネレーターが高速で回転し、2 つの LED を発光させるための電気を生み出します。そして、Skull Pocket は、やわらかいブルーの光に包まれ、グリーンの液体の蛍光着色剤を光らせます。

メカニズムを再び巻き上げる必要がない限り、ライトは約 5 秒間光り続けます。この方式は、電池も電子部品も必要としない完全な機械式です。82 個もの部品からなるこの特許取得済みのアッセンブリは、極小のサイズと曲面形状のために開発は困難を極めました。

オートクチュールの外装

アッセンブリは Skull Pocket 専用に作られた直径 59 mm のブラック DLC チタン製ケースに収められています。ラグの代わりに、HYT はダイヤルを保護するカバーの独自のシステムを開発しました。12 時位置のヒンジで連結されたそのシステムは、ブランドの美的特徴の 1 つとなった 6 時位置の象徴的なカバリエにより、作動します。カバーには、彫刻されたモチーフとレザー製のインサートがあしらわれ、さらにどのようなカスタマイズも可能です。

下向きにそっと押すと、カバリエがカバーを解放し、カバーが開いてSkull Pocket のダイヤルが現れます。頭蓋骨は初めて現代的なデザインで全体的にファセット加工され、周囲を取り巻くクル・ド・パリ仕上げに呼応する微妙な光の反射をもたらします。

夜間には、直ちに光があふれ出し、生み出されたやわらかいブルーの微光がケースを満たして、色のついた液体の中の蛍光着色剤を光らせます。このとき、頭蓋骨の周囲のスーパールミノバを塗布したアラビア数字のインデックスのおかげで、時間を直感的に読み取れます。秒は左目、パワーリザーブは右目の中で読み取れます。アッセンブリは Skull Pocket のために特別に設計されたチタン製チェーンに向けられています。ファセット加工、ポリッシュ仕上げ、およびサテン仕上げが施されたその構造は、スカルの精神を末永く感知させるかのごとく、頭蓋骨の美観を思い起こさせるように設計されたものです。

Skull Pocket:
HYT illuminates the pocket watch

HYT unveils its first ever pocket watch, the Skull Pocket. A new case, the first ever Skull and mechanical light source combination, exclusive finishes, and just 8 pieces available: the Skull Pocket marks a turning point in the development of HYT's fluid-based watchmaking technology.

“Our initial goal was to delight our collectors with a highly exclusive limited edition piece. But what ground have we not yet broken? The answer came immediately, and was so obvious that no-one would ever expect us to attempt it: our first pocket watch".

This statement from Vincent Perriard, co-founder of HYT, confirms the philosophy that the brand has always followed: inventing the watches of tomorrow, using the knowledge of today and the expertise of the past.

H1 GHOST: LIGHT EMERGES FROM THE DARK

The aesthetic features of the H1 Ghost play on this duality. Day and night, shadow and light constantly contrast. The black DLC titanium case presents alternating brushed, micro-blasted and satin-finished finishes, but their intense black only serves to better reflect the light.

The H1 Ghost has been designed around a new black fluid that does not emit or reflect any light. However, the H1 Ghost can be read in the dark; HYT developed a unique use of Super-LumiNova: the material illuminates the capillary from underneath along its entire translucent stretch, beyond the black fluid.

#BreakingNews : HYT is now part of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie

HYT joins the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie

Today, HYT is proud to announce its admittance to the group of partner brands of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH). By rewriting the Haute Horlogerie rulebook and boldly reinventing its traditions, without ever compromising on excellence, HYT has earned its place in Haute Horlogerie perimeter as defined by the Foundation. The relationship between HYT and the FHH is set to flourish even further.

``We are delighted that the FHH has chosen to recognise our innovative, non-conformist and creative nature, a creativity which is still expressed within the strict framework of Haute Horlogerie``, explains Grégory Dourde, CEO of HYT. ``In theory, integrating fluid technology in a mechanical watch was akin to trying to unite two opposing worlds. However, we achieved it and today, HYT employs around 48 staff working on five permanent collections - about 400 pieces a year. For the entire team, which has overcome so much, and for all of our customers, who have believed in us for the last five years, it is both an endorsement and an incentive to forge ahead in our quest to invent the watches of the future``.

RC44 celebrates its 10 years with HYT alongside

HYT and Russell Coutts are not only partners. Since 2015 the creator of the RC44 monohull is present on all the seas hoisting their synergies for all to see. HYT is the only hydro mechanical watch and the natural partner for this monohull that is so prestigious that it has its own RC44 Championship Tour. It is the 10 year anniversary of these races that HYT would like to hail.

"Some people offer flowers, some people offer cakes at birthday. We thought we'd develop a new H4 for Russell".

The new H4 RC44 unites all the maritime codes of this race: blue liquid, technical design, the same colour codes of the regatta and an ultra-light carbon case like the RC44's hull. And the last detail that we will only see at HYT: A seconds wheel that emulates the golden bar that the monohull raises when it is winning.

For the first time in its history, HYT has built an H2 with a full untreated titanium case. This is also the very first H2 to feature the new black liquid, unveiled at the beginning of the year. The H2’s caliber has been suitably adapted: for the first time, it’s been crafted in two-tone black and grey; above it glides a brand new central minutes hand, drawing inspiration from marine-style hands.

Swiss Pioneers of Groundbreaking Fluid Technology

Swiss based HYT SA (HYT) and Preciflex SA (Preciflex) announced today they had successfully raised CHF23 million for the launch of a new suite of Swiss made products that are expected to be available on the market within 36 months.

Investors included the founders and existing shareholders, together with Mr. Peter Brabeck-Letmathe and a Swiss-based private asset management company as a strategic anchor investor. Beat C. Burkhardt, President and CEO of Tetral SA will join the Board of HYT and Fulvio Maccarone, Head of Private Investments of Tetral SA will join the Board of Preciflex.

The young Swiss companies initially set out to raise CHF15 million but, due to the level of interest from potential investors, decided to increase the amount of the capital raising. Co- Founder and Board Member of HYT and Preciflex, Emmanuel Savioz, commented ‘We knew we had the right idea, the right business model and the right people to make it happen. What we needed to bring the development and deployment of our technology to the next step was more financing and in doing so, we were fortunate enough to attract the right partners too.’

Co-Founder and Chairman of HYT and Preciflex, Patrick Berdoz, added ‘this is a singular opportunity for us to develop, grow and expand and we thank all our partner investors for this exceptional vote of confidence in our companies and in our people.’

The groundbreaking fluid technology is currently available in the luxury independent watch industry with HYT’s disruptive and innovative mechanical timepieces that use liquid to indicate the time. Launched in 2012, HYT’s watches are available in 69 points of sale worldwide. HYT was awarded “Best Innovative Watch” of the year by the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) in 2012. This Series C Financing will enable HYT to launch a new proprietary and powerful movement allowing case size reduction in addition to the introduction of multiple fluidic indications.

Preciflex has various applications in the fields of micro and meso-fluidic that can be utilised in industries as diverse as the horological, automotive or medical sectors. This Series C Financing will accelerate the development of a new fluidic watch for a wider market at different price points in addition to a new type of fluidic jewellery. The trademarked technology opens an unprecedented era of creativity in both these markets and it is expected that the new products will either be launched with strategic players or through a sister company under a new brand.

Skull Bad Boy: Dark side of the Skull

Skull. Bad. Boy.

Need we say more? The name really says it all. Its appearance speaks volumes, yet masks a stunning complexity. There's more to the skull than meets the eye!

One would naturally assume that the starting point for the Skull Bad Boy was the skull itself, unveiled by HYT in 2015. Not so. The creative impetus actually came from the new liquid which surrounds it. This is not a simple aesthetic variation. This opaque black, so simple to look at, took more than 12 months to develop.

To go with this new black liquid, HYT wanted to create a skull with the distinctive appearance of Damascus steel, used for knives and Samurai swords. The dial comprises two half-moons decorated with the Clous de Paris stud pattern. Its indexes are created in a Gothic font, complementing the Skull Bad Boy's hard rock look.

As « all things come in threes », HYT welcomes its latest « Friend of the Brand », the Australian motorsports racer, Peter Hackett

A year ago, HYT introduced its very first Ambassador, Jean-Eric Vergne from the motorsports industry and competing as a racing driver at the FIA Formula E. At the beginning of the year, HYT reinforced its position in the racing industry by launching its partnership with Peter Li Zhi Cong, the young FIA F3 racer from China. Today, we are happy to announce our latest addition to our racing family, Australian Friend of the Brand Chief Driving Instructor of Mercedes AMG GT3, Peter Hackett.

HYT is honored to count on Peter Hackett into its growing « Friends of the Brand » band. Vincent Perriard explained that Peter is a huge fan of the brand and, more importantly, he is a proud owner of an HYT watch, the H1 Titanium Black DLC that he bought long time before discussing about this partnership. Peter perfectly knows the brand as a final customer and he completely falls for the complexity of our products. « This kind of association is just unique for a brand. « Indeed, to have your final client as your Ambassador is the best thing a brand can imagine to have » Perriard said.

As Peter Hackett insistes on the video the brand posted on its social media, Hackett loves innovation, science, passion and technology, it’s why he chose the HYT’s Skull Green Eye for testing it during its daily life and during a year fully planned of races.

The two-time Australian GT runner-up is among the first to import Mercedes’ new GT3 challenger to form a new team to contest the 2016 Australian GT Championship.

Just like HYT, Vergne and Li Zhi Cong, Hackett is also fascinated by mechanics and, above all, for technical excellence.

HYT is delighted to support Peter Hackett during his Eggleston Motor Sport Customer Sports Racing AMG GT3 for the 2016 season.

We hope our customers like it.’

H2 Tradition: HYT’s retro contemporary U-turn

"We have always said that we would never create a classic piece. Having said that, this is exactly what we've done!"

Vincent Perriard, HYT's CEO, loves nothing better than exploring the brand's vast capacity for expression. From its very beginnings, the brand has blazed new trails, experimenting, creating, inventing... Its driving force — innovation — has propelled all its models to greater heights than anyone could have imagined. And now, HYT has reached the very summit. From this tempting viewpoint, how could HYT not cast a contemplative eye over three centuries of watchmaking?

"Fluid innovation is, and will remain, in our DNA", continues Vincent Perriard, "but this doesn't prevent us from playing around with the codes of traditional watchmaking. Fun, experimentation, the joy of surprise: after all, that's what we do best!".

The very new Skull Maori

Vincent perriard, HYT CEO, gets straight to the point – the skull, hyt’s new extraordinary and unprecedented creation, breaks all the rules.

When asked what the driving force behind the creation of the skull maori was, hyt art director xavier casals discussed the desire to further emphasise the skull shape of the piece by using a rare and traditional hand engraving, a beautiful metier d’art. Casals added that the use of the maori tribal tattoo, often associated with a skull, was another integral part to the concept.

For the skull collection, the glass tube is bent into the shape of a skull, and the level of complexity skyrockets because of the eight bends needed to create the skull. Normally, when a tube is bent, the inside diameter is reduced, restricting the flow of the liquid (think of a kink in a garden hose, for example). To avoid this occurring, hyt had to find a solution to counteract this reduction so as not to affect the precision of the watch. Hyt’s engineers worked together with glassblowers to fully understand how glass works, how it responds to heat, speed, angles and gravity. Thanks to mastering these factors, the brand’s engineers were able to reduce this undesirable effect to a minimum.

Discover the H4 Metropolis – The Movie

Watch the video and discover the H4 Metropolis and this light system!

The generator has been nestled between 4 and 5 o'clock. It is invisible, and activated by the push-piece located opposite on the case middle. The process is broadly that of a dynamo: converting mechanical power into light energy. It is the rotation of the push-piece at 4:30 that winds the generator. Pressure on this same push-piece then activates the two LEDs which bathe the Metropolis in a soft blue light.

The H4 Metropolis will be released as a run of 100 pieces with a titanium and DLC case and a black rubber base with integrated NOMEX© canvas strap, available from October 27 2015 previously at Colette in Paris and worldwide from mid-November.

HYT bathes its H4 in light

The H4 Alinghi is the world's first watch dynamo converting mechanical power into light to read the time even in the dark.

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 Alinghi tells the time. As for the rest, you will need to forget anything that has been seen, designed, or even imagined before now.

DISCOVER THE H1 AIR RC44

In February, HYT announced its partnership with the RC44 Championship Tour, created in 2007 by the legendary Russell Coutts, 5 times winner of the America's Cup.

"For this occasion, we needed a piece that of course leveraged on our fluid technology but also ensured the performance and the lightness of a monocoque." says HYT CEO Vincent Perriard.

The H1 AIR RC44 movement is covered by a sapphire dial, another first for HYT. The part of the dial covering the bellows remains transparent to allow an unobstructed view of the heart of the watch. On this timepiece, the sapphire dial is adorned with a applied chapter made of a single piece of carbon, evoking the ultra perfectionist structures of racing monocoques. This H1's architecture designed in stratum, firstly with the movement, then the sapphire dial and then finally the applied chapter, allowed us to integrate new depths and a different volume and richness to the piece. Limited edition of 22 pieces.
