Check out the HYT H1 and HYT H2 watches
HYT, the so-called "Hydro Mechanical Horologists", introduced quite a few colour variations at this year's Baselworld. Both the H1 and H2 collections expand with a variety of metals, coated and uncoated, for the case, as well as liquids of various colors to indicate the hours. Here are two of the ones we've featured on the H1 "Iceberg", a variant of the H1 with a white and ice blue combination, the coolest version in the H1 range; and the HYT H2 Titanium & White Gold, perhaps the most beautiful addition to the entire HYT collection.
The new HYT H1 Iceberg features a similar color scheme to the technical "dial" and case for which the HYT H1 is known. As HYT mentioned in a press release: "The azure liquid complements the mechanical sophistication while adding a touch of lightness and fresh air."
Some specs:
Case: Titanium, brushed, shot-peened and satin-finished; Diameter = 48.8 mm; Thickness = 17.9 mm; Blue-encapsulated screw-locking crown; Titanium crown guard; Titanium circle at 6 o'clock Top; curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the inside; screw-in sapphire case back; water-resistant to 100 meters
Functions: Retrograde blue liquid hours; minutes, seconds
Movement: Mechanical hand-wound, exclusive HYT movement; 28,800 vph (4 Hz); 35 jewels; bridges hand-chamfered and Côtes de Genève; rhodium-plated bellows; 65-hour power reserve
Strap: White rubber, also available in black fudge alligator; titanium pin buckle.
The "dial" features high tech, including gears, levers, bridges and a beautiful balance wheel held in place by a very elegant but sturdy balance bridge. Of course, the iconic bellows and feeler, cam and piston systems also show off all their technical beauty. All new HYT timepieces are equipped with a temperature change compensator. This means that all HYT watches, whether H1 or H2 models, will always show the correct time via the central minute hand and the hours via a liquid-filled tube. The blue liquid and white metal in the hour indicator tube are incredibly "cute".
The HYT H2 offers three more functions than the H1: a new power reserve indicator, a temperature indicator and an "HNR" indicator. The latter is attached to the crown and tells the wearer where the crown is, H for setting the time, N for neutral and R for winding (remonter in French).
Some specs:
Case: Titanium and white gold, micro-blasted and satin-finished; diameter = 48.8 mm; thickness = 17.9 mm; domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating (case); screw-in sapphire case back; water-resistant up to 50 meters
Movement: Exclusive HYT manual winding movement; 21,600 vph (3 Hz), 28 jewels, 192 hours (8 days) power reserve; titanium bridges
Functions: Retrograde blue fluid hours; 30-minute jumping hands minutes; crown position indicator (HNR); temperature indicator
