The H²O continues to track time using fluid mechanics, under a sapphire crystal dome that is as pristine and perfectly transparent as a piece of lab equipment.

The new watch by HYT offers radical perspectives on time, through mesmerizing 3D transparency, plus a shape resembling a smoothed stone that has weathered time to perfection. It showcases the essential HYT union of esthetics and science using the technology of fluids moved by a mechanical movement. The visible H²O timing concept is rooted in the continuous movement of a colored and a transparent fluid in a capillary. A cloche-like sapphire crystal offers an intriguing lateral view of time’s progress. Viewed from the side, the digits, markers and directive arrows appear to be floating. Yet their anchor is pure precision.


There are two limited editions of the H²O, each comprising 25 numbered pieces. One is clothed in black and harbors a bright green fluid; the other has a silver-colored case and deep blue liquid. Their universal design language is transparency, accenting aesthetics and technical detail simultaneously. The angled positioning of the two bellows that propel time forward in the patented HYT micro-fluidic module is the gateway to an overall appearance with a distinctive 3D character. A jumping minute hand, crown position indicator and thermal indicator are further elements of these pieces.
