H0 Blue fluid

Time is a river. The H0 Blue Night by HYT turns this elemental maxim into poetry in motion. A patented fluidic module enables blue liquid to express the time that has flowed through the wearer’s recent past – and clear liquid to symbolize the waters that lie just ahead. This fascinating depiction of life’s flow is dramatized by the timepiece’s enigmatic black case, dial and strap. The whole is a horological interpretation of a magical midnight swim, firmly etched on the memory, defying dilution.

Time is a river.

Fluidity of time

For HYT the H0 watches epitomize a proven will to recognize the purity of source, continually rejuvenating the brand’s essential and transparent focus on the fluidity of time. Greek philosopher Heraclitus was spot-on when he said, “No man ever steps in the same river twice as it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man”. Each glance at the H0 Blue Night confirms the central belief that context and content define time as the union of fluid technology and a mechanical caliber brings to life time’s passage. A drop-like sapphire glass dome magnifies this “theater” and makes the fluids visible from all angles. On the subtly curved dial, concave counters replicate the outward motion caused by descending droplets of water breaking surface tension. And true to the nocturnal inspirational spirit, Super-LumiNova® coating on the underside of the capillary glass tube that houses the liquid allows time to be read accurately at night.
