H20

Contemporary. Flowing. Meaningful.

Water and time separate HYT’s continent of origin from Mexico. Three unique HYT H20 timepieces are uniting these elements and locations with special appearances at three Mexican exhibitions in September and October 2019 – the EMWA Fest, Berger Fest and SIAR. For HYT, the flow of liquid and time really matters. This is the two-fold inspiration, essence and driver of the H20, with its patented micro-fluidic module incorporating an exclusive APRP movement. A trio of one-off variations allies with the individual colors of the Mexican flag to localize the beautiful motion of time. For a watch capable of defying gravity, distance is just a walk in the park.

Radical perspectives on time
The H20 offers radical perspectives on time, through 3D transparency and a shape resembling a smoothed stone, weathered to perfection. It showcases the essential HYT union of art and science, measuring the passage of time mesmerizingly using fluids. In the Mexico-inspired trio, black liquid traces elapsed time, while a see-through counterpart reflects what’s about to come. Pale green C7 Super-LumiNova®, underneath the capillary and on the numerals and hands, supports timekeeping after dark. Like a flourishing river, life does not stand still, so the present floats elegantly at the ever-changing meeting point of the past and future, day and night. The signature of each piece’s uniqueness is a color accent on the bezel in either red, white or green, teasing the enigmatic draw of a black case and strap.

The essence of flow
A cloche-like sapphire crystal offers an intriguing lateral view of the progress of time. This takes the memory to the pristine equipment of a science laboratory – and the imagination to the protective display of a precious work of art, in this case time. Viewed from the side, the skeleton digits, markers and directive arrows appear to be floating. In its entirety, the H20 is an invitation to discover and explore new dimensions of encountering time and space in context – yours. The angled positioning of the two concertina bellows is the gateway to looking behind the scenes of temporality. A jumping minute hand, crown position indicator and thermal indicator are further elements of this live performance in a meticulously constructed theater of time. The H20 traces and embraces the very essence of flow – even between continents.
