The H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition is a high-tech timekeeping instrument that delivers outstanding performance in all environments, both day and night. In this timepiece, a green fluid loaded with fluorescent nanoparticles moves inside a jet black case, framed with a notched bezel in satin-finished titanium.
HYT and Panis-Barthez Compétition have designed the center of the watch to express all the power of the endurance racing world, by picking up the colors of the steering wheels on their cars. The seconds indicator and the power reserve are therefore adorned with blue, red and green. The minute track is topped with a sapphire bridge, over which passes a red hand, guaranteeing the high level of legibility demanded of sports watches. Each bridge on the H4 is cut out to reduce its weight, just like a race car.
Finally, in a nod to the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans race which runs right through the night, the H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition is fitted with the HYT light module. When the pushbutton crown at 4:30 marked with the word "Flash" is pressed, the timepiece lights up mechanically, making the fluorescent green fluid which indicates the time glow spectacularly, like a gauge.
The watch is part of a 20-piece limited edition.
