HYT - Hydraulic Powered Mechanical Watch

by 29 May 2012

This edition of Baselworld saw the debut of HYT’s unprecedented design, which uses hydraulics to power a traditional hand-wounded mechanical watch. Its liquid indication of time uses two types of liquid in the bezel – one clear and the other fluorescent – to show the hour as the liquids move. What’s truly groundbreaking is that HYT has been able to incoporate the hydraulics concept into a mechanical timepiece, winning seven patents and one design patent. This painstakingly researched watch is available in titanium and 18-carat rose gold. It is 47.8 millimetres in diameter, 17.8 millimetres thick and has 65 hours of power reserve. A creative timepiece that has forever changed the way we read time!
