The latest Skull 48.8: Present. Haunting. Vital.
Still life is never about life standing still. Just like an element of one of those beautifully haunting paintings, the HYT Skull 48.8 has carpe diem on its mind. This distinctive timepiece continually reminds of the importance of seizing every second. Highlighting time’s passage using liquids, it focuses on the power of the present, the very elixir of life.
The charismatic protagonist of this mesmerizing staging of time’s flow is a skull-shaped capillary. A patented fluidic module and exclusive mechanical calibre bring this to life. Colored liquid symbolizes reflection, while its transparent counterpart speculates reservedly on the future. Their meniscus meeting point precisely depicts the vital now. The broad eyes on the dial of the Skull 48.8 intimidate intentionally, prompting onlookers to take a closer look at how they themselves are spending their time. Behind the right eye is a rotating disc expressing the passing of each precious second as it fades from dark to pale. Placing time’s essential momentum center stage, the counting of the minutes moves backstage, eliminating the need for a minute hand.
