H1. Hyt.

Blog Widget by LinkWithin

The HYT (Hydro Mechanical Horologists) uses a liquid filled chamber to display the hours using luminescent green goo in a circular tube. Two bellows are used to push and pull the liquid to show the time on the scale. These bellows are operated by the movement. The minutes are displayed in the center of the face with a dedicated dial, and there is a water turbine style subsidiary seconds hand to the left of it. On the right is a power reserve indicator for the mechanical movement. Nothing like this has been done before.

HYT claims that there are seven pending patents for this watch alone. The brand worked with a number of consultants to produce the movement. This is probably one of the most interesting watches to view while adjusting the time. Pistons in the movement move the bellows. As one expands the other one compresses which moves the liquid. The green colors comes from “fluorescein.” According to HYT the watch is designed with as much shock protection as possible to ensure the systems are kept safe and that you can wear the watch as normal.

The HYT H1 is a pretty sizable watch. Wear this and you’ll get noticed for sure. Coming in three case styles the H1 is available in titanium, DLC black coated titanium, and 18k red gold. The case will be 48.8mm wide and a pretty massive 17.9mm thick.
