By using fluid inside a capillary connected to a watch movement, HYT has created an original, some would say philosophical means of displaying the time. The H₀ X Eau Rouge is further proof.

All life on planet earth is dependent on fluids. This scientifically proven truth lies at the very heart of the H₀ X Eau Rouge by HYT. In this high-tech timepiece, the color red alludes to the very essence of life, with its three primary functions of transporting, protecting and regulating. The H₀ X Eau Rouge presents a live performance of the passage of time in the now, with a red and a clear immiscible liquid symbolizing two primary sources of life. A patented micro-fluidic module co-stars with a mechanical caliber to mirror the unstoppable fluidity of time.

In the H₀ X Eau Rouge, the inspiration of flowing liquid finds expression in form and function. Its overall shape resembles an exquisite pebble that moving water has smoothed to perfection over time. A cloche-like sapphire glass swells the necessary function of protection into a beautiful, water-inspired form and transporter of transparency. Concave counters on the gently curved dial suggest the outward motion caused by descending droplets of water breaking the surface tension.

Red rubber straps, red minute and second hands and stainless steel crowns sheathed in red contrast dynamically with 48.8 mm cases in two shades of grey. One is stainless steel with an alluring gleam; the other is DLC anthracite stainless steel with an urban edge. Ensuring that life goes on is a power reserve of 65 hours.
