The HYT H1 Hydro Mechanical Watch, the first ever time-piece to use liquid as a primary component in a watch’s functioning mechanics, has captured the delighted gaze of aficionados everywhere. Elite Swiss horological engineers developed the technology behind this marvel, which resulted in a whopping seven pending patents necessary for its creation.
The watch face is rimmed with a circular tube where green fluorescent liquid is filled to display the hours. The watch movement boasts an exclusive HYT caliber, 28,000 vph, 4 Hz, 35 jewels, hand-chamfered bridges adorned with Cotes de Geneve and a 65 hour power reserve.
Pistons within the mechanical movement power two rhodiumed bellows that alternately expand and compress, causing the liquid around the face to move. The 48.8mm wide and 17.9mm thick encasing is available in titanium, DLC black coated titanium and 18k red gold.
This $45,000 watch is for those who have an eye for innovation, know a good thing when they see it and aren’t afraid to wear that knowledge over the sleeve. It reminds us that even the most traditional and beautiful engineering can find some new higher-ground and keep reaching past the limits of expectation. So, what will you wear?
