Skull 48.8: A poignant reminder to make the most of life!
The Skull collection has been enhanced with a more compact model, but its message still resonates now more than ever. The Skull, with its new 48.8 mm case, is available in two versions, the first made entirely from pink gold and the second from contrasting gold and black DLC titanium. Both have a patinated skull, underscoring the fact that life is precious.
The Skull has been an iconic HYT timepiece since 2015. Its boldness pushes the boundaries for a brand that stands out from the crowd, starting with its fluid time display. Every feature of the Skull is designed to act as a "memento mori", a reminder that life is short and you must seize every moment. It is a symbol of life rather than of death. Just like the fluids which, driven by two flexible reservoirs, progress inside the capillary to mark the passage of time. Without liquid, no life is possible. There would be no timekeeping either: this process began with the first water clocks (or "clepsydras"), over three thousand years ago. As a 21st-century clepsydra, the HYT is a philosophical instrument. Even more so when it takes the form of a bold skull with hollow eyes.
