HYT is Swiss brand known for its unique method of telling the time, which involves liquid and bellows, and the new HYT H4 Neo definitely fits the description. The H4 Neo is a piece equipped with a light source. Under the dome at 6 o’clock, HYT has concealed two purple LEDs. Once activated, they flood the entire dial with light. At night, the fluorescent colored fluid and the transparent composite dial loaded with fluorescent nano particles are energized by this light source, becoming supremely striking. At the same time, the wash of light flows into every nook and cranny of the mechanisms, literally bringing this skeleton architecture to life, and defying the laws of watchmaking.
No battery, no electronics are needed for this process, which is fully mechanical. Three factors made it so tricky to develop: the extreme miniaturization, the curved shape, and the fact, once again, that no development of this type had ever been achieved before.
Measuring in at a whopping 51mm width by 18mm height, this watch is massive. It is able to dive 50 meters deep and featuring a power reserve of 65 hours.
HYT H4 Neo comes with a fire-resistant, water-resistant, hypoallergenic, and reinforced fabric strap and is limited to only 15 pieces, priced at $95,000 for each piece.
