Baselworld 2012 Spotlight: HYT H1 Fluid Watch

Mar 13, 2012

HYT recently revealed the H1 after months of teasers and anticipation. Looking like something out of the movies, this Swiss made timepiece is absolutely the most contemporary piece released this year as Baselworld 2012. It uses an advanced fluorescent liquid technology to indicate time.

The secret is fluid mechanics. The set of two bellows made of highly resistant and flexible alloy compresses the reservoirs by the power of pistons. The CEO, Vincent Perriard is an ecstatic individual who is driven on his concept and design decisions based on futurism and uniqueness. His design theories ultimately called to create this rather large 48.8mm wide and 17.8 thick timepiece. Other aesthetic features he wanted to incorporate were the decoration and finishes of classic timepieces. One of the solutions to accomplish this was by displaying the manually wound movement that can be seen on the back above the two bellows. Also includes a 65 hour power reserve indicator found neatly on the upper right side.

The H1 is available in 4 finishes; Titanium, Black DLC, 18kt Pink Gold with Black DLC, and 18kt Pink Gold. The starting price on the H1 is $45,000.
