Earning its place in the sphere of high-end watchmaking by turning utopia into reality, HYT is continuing its allencompassing quest for hybridisation with the H2. The perfect alliance between high-end watchmaking and fluid mechanics, the H2 was born of a vision shared by the hydro mechanical horologists and the APRP team (Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi) overseen by Giulio Papi.
Bolstered by the enthusiastic reception to its launch in 2012, HYT is continuing its immersion in the world of Haute Horlogerie and pushing the limits of hydro mechanics further with the H2 by integrating fluidics into mechanical watchmaking.
Firstly, by the position of the bellows, positioned at 6 o'clock in "V" and rising, which clearly evokes the most outstanding achievements of automotive and aeronautical engineering. This optimises the integration of the interface that connects the watch mechanisms with the fluidic system. Mirroring the pair of bellows, the balance spring presides at midday on its black bridge, the dome marking the rhythm of life in this unique world. At 3 o'clock is a "H-N-R" crown position indicator, which brings to mind the gearstick of a racing car, is counterbalanced by the presence of another hand, which is also original and exclusive to HYT, a temperature indicator. Once the watch is being worn, this function enables the user to accurately find out when the fluid has reached the optimum temperature range. In the centre, a minute hand, designed in stages to perfectly fit the structure of the fluidic system jumps after 30 minutes to avoid the bellows.
