I recently announced a new brand called fake HYT, which will make its debut at Baselworld this year. Now, thanks to Ariel Adams, I have the opportunity to show you images of its top-of-the-line watch HYT H1 based on the revolutionary concept of “Hydraulic Mechanical Clock”.
The transparent tube circling around the dial is actually a hollow filled with liquid, indicating the number of hours in which the green luminous liquid has been used. The lower part of the dial shows two bellows, which are controlled by the movement. These are used to push the liquid and then draw it back again to show the current time. Display the minutes in a more traditional way, using a separate subdial at 12 o’clock. The small second hand is located at 9 o’clock and is designed in the style of a water turbine. The other side of the dial is at 3 o’clock, equipped with a power reserve indicator, which can balance the layout well.
According to the brand, the watch has no less than seven patents pending. Once available, customers can choose from the following three versions: titanium, DLC black coated titanium and 18k rose gold. The fake HYT H1 is a 48.8 mm wide film driven by a mechanical self-winding movement, which can be seen from the rear, and provides a 65-hour power reserve.
HYT stands for a new concept in the watchmaking industry-HYT stands for “Hydraulic Mechanical Watchmaker”, the brand will focus on producing watches that not only contain liquids but also use liquids for functional purposes.
HYT has applied for 7 pending patents for all aspects of H1, which further highlights the new realm of HYT CEO Vincent Perriard breaking this watch.
H1 has 3 watch case styles to choose from: titanium, DLC black coated titanium and 18k rose gold. The housing will be 48mm wide and 18mm thick.
Of course, the most striking aspect of the watch is the glowing green-yellow liquid ring you see around the dial. H1 uses liquid to display the hours on a round tube around the edge of the dial.
You can see two devices that look like pistons at the bottom of the dial, which are used to push and pull the liquid to show the time on the scale.
The minutes are displayed on the medium sub-dial near the center watch, with a cool paddle wheel seconds hand on the left.
On the right, you can also see the power reserve indicator (65 hours) of the manual-winding mechanical movement.
