HYT Watches Presents the H1 Alinghi at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2017HYT and Alinghi fly together across the water since 2015. HYT - the only wristwatch brand to ever produce timepieces that tell time by using liquids - has an undeniable association with fluids and so, chose full immersion of its « fluid DNA » to become the partner of Alinghi. In order to celebrate the 3 years of partnership, HYT launched the H1 Alinghi watch and unveiled it during the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.
On-site immersionA special feature of this model is that it results from a long process to assimilate Alinghi's signature design. "We visited the shipyards where the team prepares its multihull craft", explained Gregory Dourde – HYT CEO. “We observed how the yachts were built, their unfinished and assembled components, their functions, their positioning.... Many of these elements found their way into the piece".
Understated and efficientThe dial, just like an Alinghi catamaran in full flight, uses an array of technology to enable the time to be read via the liquid in the capillary, to create its signature fluid time. An understated and pure deep black colour was chosen. To make it easier to read in the dark, HYT has set it on a channel filled with Super-LumiNova. At night, the translucent part of the capillary reflects the light, enabling the time display, which remains opaque, to be read.
"This H1 Alinghi is an edgy, uncompromising and technically advanced piece. It is designed in the same way Alinghi designs its racing yachts, for full control of power and performance", concluded Gregory Dourde.
