Science teaches that collisions are about interactions and rarely an accident. The H1.0 by HYT creates a beautiful space in which mechanical horology and fluid technology collide with each other constructively. The result is a timepiece that showcases the injection of physical energy into a patented fluidic module. As the intricate movement and multi-layer bellows join forces, time literally gains momentum.
The H1.0 is empowered by three-dimensional transparency. Viewed from any angle it takes an architectural approach to visualizing the passage of time, placing the present in the context of the past and future, using liquids. All elements of the specially developed mechanical movement collaborate closely to form the big picture of pure functionality. From the clearly visible power reserve display, to the constructed wheel that indicates the flow of the seconds, time is in perpetual motion. Positive energy emerges from a series of visible tensions, such as the shaping of the steeply curved case and the clipped lines of the bellows’ extractors. Even the side-view of the watch tells the story of time’s passage via cut-out digits embedded in the deep grooves of the case’s exterior. The concept of fluidity is emphasized in the H1.0 by water resistance to 50 meters.
In this version of the H1.0, many shades of grey, on the case, dial, movement and strap, mingle with dynamic Super-Luminova C7 and red detail. Black liquid flows over a matching green Super-Luminova layer for enhanced night-time visibility, mindfully tracking the passing hours. The bellows and capillary lining of the patented fluid module in all of these Swiss made watches were born in the USA. Subtly patterned rubber straps with a titanium buckle secure them comfortably to the wrist. Making an impact should always have a feel-good factor.
