Nothing has changed, except the essential
Innovation within tradition, the DNA of haute horlogerie, the movement heritage, and so on: forget it all. Need a known quantity to hang on to? Good news: the H4 Neo watch tells the time.
The H4 Neo watch is a piece equipped with a light source. Under the dome at 6 o’clock, HYT has concealed two purple LEDs. Once activated, they flood the entire dial with light. At night, the fluorescent colored fluid and the transparent composite dial loaded with fluorescent nano particles are energized by this light source, becoming supremely striking.
At the same time, the wash of light flows into every nook and cranny of the mechanisms, literally bringing this skeleton architecture to life, and defying the laws of watchmaking.
No battery, no electronics are needed for this process, which is fully mechanical. Three factors made it so tricky to develop: the extreme miniaturization, the curved shape, and the fact, once again, that no development of this type had ever been achieved before.
