  • Catalogue Essay

    Regarded as one of the youngest independent manufacturers in the field of watchmaking, HYT was officially launched in 2012. Introduced in the same year, the H1 was the first wristwatch released by the firm at Baselworld and immediately making a statement through its groundbreaking innovative approach to tell time.

    With over 8 technological patents and 1 patent for design, the H1 will the first ever timepiece to tell time via fluid. Developed in collaboration with Jean-François Mojon and Preciflex with a specific focus on movement and fluid operation, the mechanism is made possible via two reservoirs located on 6 O’clock. One compresses the liquid whilst the other expands it. As the hours go by, the liquid runs through a tube indicating the hours whilst a dial positioned at 12 O’clock indicates the minutes.

    Extremely well executed and extraordinary, the H1 was awarded the Innovation Watch Prize at the 2012 GPHG. The present example in DLC coated titanium is the exact iteration that was awarded the prize and it is presented in excellent “like new” overall condition and accompanied by the full set of accessories.
