The HYT H1 "Velvet Gun"

This is the new HYT H1 “Velvet Gun,” which comes in a titanium case with a new satin purple PVD treatment. It has the same dial layout and dimensions as the original H1 (48.8 mm by 17.9 mm). Same hand wound 4Hz, 35-jewel movement with hand-chamfered bridges, Geneva stripes, rhodium treated bellows and 65-hour power reserve. And it still features the signature retrograde fluid hours display; a minutes dial at 12 o’clock, a seconds disc between 9 and 10, and a power reserve indicator between 2 and 3.

HYT H2 Titanium & White Gold Blue

HYT will introduce a new version of their liquid filled H2 timepiece at Baselworld. This time, the H2 has a new translucent blue liquid, and is presented in a titanium & white gold case. Apart from the case, liquid color and the new temperature gauge (in between 9 and 10 o’clock), which now has two stages instead of three – everything else appears unchanged from the original HYT H2. More details will follow, along with hands-on images at Baselworld.

Hands-On Video With HYT H2

Originally introduced at Baselworld 2012 in prototype form, this is the first production ready HYT H2 timepiece.

As a recap, the center hand indicates minutes (it jumps over the 6 o’clock hour marker in one motion every 30-minutes). Hours are indicated by a retrograde display that consists of neon-yellow fluorescent fluid that moves within the tube around the edge of the dial.

Baselworld: HYT H2 and NEW HYT H1 (Hands-On)

Last week at Baselworld HYT officially launched the second generation of their liquid mechanical timepiece. In conjunction with Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi, HYT essentially reinvented the H1 — by changing the bellows which pump the fluid into the tube which displays the hour — into a “V” pattern thereby improving the timepiece’s form and function. The new configuration offers a more complicated visually appearance and offers better integration between the interface which connects the watch mechanisms with the fluidic system.

After successfully launching the H1 last year at Baselworld, HYT has partnered with APRP (Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi) to produce the H2. Building on the original concept of using a hybrid movement that is both mechanical and uses fluid to tell the time, the H2 represents the next step forward in liquid mechanical watchmaking.
