At one precise moment in time, tradition chooses between a path to nostalgia and one to evolution. It’s called the present. The latest H20 by HYT visualizes a unique journey of classical horology to a radical design destination. A familiar and respected vocabulary of pale green luminescent digits, markers and hand tips confidently navigates its way through a context of bold modernity. The intrinsic flow of time rests in the capable hands of an exclusive APRP mechanical movement and a patented micro-fluidic module. These work together to ensure that the now is continually aware of its pivotal position.
This is where yesterday flows seamlessly into tomorrow.
The appearance of the predominantly black H20 timepiece echoes a very current conversation in this limited edition of eight pieces. It takes place between elapsed time, with all the expertise and experience it has nurtured, and the prospect of discovery promised by what lies ahead. HYT has chosen a highly resistant black liquid to document the past, saluting serenity.
Transparency is key to this HYT series’ presentation of time’s passage. The mechanical and fluidic dialogue is staged for all to see through a tall, domed sapphire crystal and see-through case back. As with a smooth pebble, time’s effects enhance rather than dilute the watch’s beauty. The high-tech caliber integrates microblasted titanium bridges, black DLC coating and satin finishes. Two rhodium-plated bellows moderate the performance to perfection. Each glance offers a new perspective on time, its origins and its possibilities.
