HYT swiss stands for a new concept in the watchmaking industry-HYT stands for “Hydraulic Mechanical Watchmaker”, the brand will focus on producing watches that not only contain liquids but also use liquids for functional purposes.
HYT has applied for 7 pending patents for all aspects of H1, which further highlights the new realm of HYT CEO Vincent Perriard breaking this watch.
H1 has 3 watch case styles to choose from: titanium, DLC black coated titanium and 18k rose gold. The housing will be 48mm wide and 18mm thick.
Of course, the most striking aspect of the watch is the glowing green-yellow liquid ring you see around the dial. H1 uses liquid to display the hours on a round tube around the edge of the dial.
You can see two devices that look like pistons at the bottom of the dial, which are used to push and pull the liquid to show the time on the scale.
The minutes are displayed on the medium sub-dial near the center fake watch, with a cool paddle wheel seconds hand on the left.
On the right, you can also see the power reserve indicator (65 hours) of the manual-winding mechanical movement.
