HYT’s H2 Aviator does not look like a pilot watch or even an aviation watch. It looks very much like H2. This is natural. But this shows that the brand has shown great interest in aviation watches, Patek Philippe (their first foray into aviation) and Baogue’s exquisite works. HYT basically made their H2 clearer and easier to understand, with a minute hand inspired by flight instruments, a larger red quarter hour marker, and a hand and luminous coating. The movement is treated with a DLC coating to provide a dark background for the time indicator. The hour markers on the black aluminum hour dial are painted with gray SuperLuminova. This watch is equipped with a new Kevlar strap, which is used for yacht sails and the clothes of pilots and racers.
The actual mechanism remains unchanged: Designed by HYT and Audemars Piguet Renaud & Papi (supervised by Giulio Papi), H2 is a unique timepiece whose system is based on a movement driving two bellows, which are two flexible alloys The form of the reservoir is at the ends of the capillary. Choose one of the colored liquids and the other a transparent liquid to avoid mixing. The separation position between the colored liquid and the transparent liquid is used to indicate the number of hours from 6 am to 6 pm, after which the colored liquid returns to the starting point in a retrograde manner. The H2 Aviator watch is different from the original model in 2014. The bellows are arranged in a V shape.

Case and dial
The case is 48.8 mm in diameter and 17.9 mm thick, made of DLC-coated titanium. The minute hand has a “déphaseurangulaire” function, so it jumps from right to left at the 30-minute mark. The crown position indicator (HNR, time setting, neutral, winding) makes the movement more interesting; the crown itself is screw-in, with rubber details. There is also a temperature indicator at about 10 o’clock, so you can see that the watch is in the correct temperature range and can be operated accurately. This watch has a screw-in sapphire back cover. The waterproof depth is 50 meters.
The movement that powers the fluid system is mechanical, manually wound, designed and manufactured in-house. It runs at 21,600 vph, 3 Hz, and has a power reserve of 192 hours (8 days). replica watches review
