Last year we wrote about the HYT H1, a sensational watch featuring mechanical and fluid dynamic time indications.
With the H2, the entire architecture of the hybrid movement has been redesigned seamlessly integrating and enclosing the bellows. Deconstructed, it coexists, integrates, encloses the bellows and the system of cams, feelers and pistons.
Following the successful launch of the H1, HYT Watches pushes the limits of hydro mechanics further with the HYT H2.
The bellows are now positioned at 6 o'clock in "V" and rising, evoking automotive and aeronautical engineering.
At 3 o'clock is a "T-N-W" 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.
At 6 o'clock, the two bellows, made from an incredibly strong and supple electro-deposited alloy, are moved by a piston. When the first is compressed, the other is extended, and vice versa, driving the movement of the fluids in the capillary.
The movement is housed in a black DLC titanium case with a diameter of 48.8 mm and a thickness of 17.9 mm.
The double barrel, visible through the back of the watch, offers an 8-day power reserve
The HYT H2 is supplied with a rubberised anthracite alligator strap.
