We sometimes imagine them to be black. Or sometimes wearing a white sheet, sometimes misty and transparent. In the collective unconscious, ghosts are like the passing of time or the time we have remaining: elusive.
The H1 Ghost combines all these ideas. It has been designed around a new black fluid produced in-house by Preciflex, HYT's sister company which is responsible for developing fluids for HYT. But this fluid is unlike any other; it is completely opaque - a first for HYT.
This is not just an aesthetic challenge; an opaque fluid does not emit or reflect any light. This means that come night, it is invisible. However, so that the H1 Ghost can be read in the dark, HYT developed a unique use of Super-LumiNova: the material illuminates the capillary from underneath along its entire translucent stretch, beyond the black fluid.
In concrete terms, this means that in the dark, the H1 Ghost does not only display the elapsed time, but also the remaining time up to 6 o'clock. When it reaches this precise moment, the fluid performs its retrograde movement.
