Accepting time’s unstoppable flow turns every good-bye into a hello. The final version of the H20 by HYT, with its very own literal fil rouge, is living proof of this theory. This five-strong limited edition celebrates the series’ huge capacity to shape the brand’s past, present and future. These influences range from its visualization of time’s transience using liquids, to the mesmerizing portrayal of three-dimensional transparency. Once upon a time, in the first execution of the H20, art met science and formed a beautiful relationship. Two years on, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge. But time’s river shows no signs of stopping.
As life’s chapters unfold, more and more invitations to view things from different angles reveal themselves. The design of the H20 reflects this process in its resemblance of a smoothed stone that has weathered time to perfection. In the latest model, a red lacquered line guides the eye on its 360° tour of time, around the side of the domed crystal. This elegantly surmounts and descends the crown, while neat red markers cap the numbers circuiting the case. HYT consistently portrays the fascinating interplay of time and space, demonstrating that this is never a two-dimensional snapshot viewed head-on for an isolated moment.
The H20 translates the language of transparency directly on to the dial with its clear view of the watch’s operation. Center-stage is the seamless collaboration of the HYT patented fluidic module and mechanical movement developed specially by APRP. The angled positioning of the two multi-layer bellows underlines the emphasis on three-dimensionality. This celebratory timepiece has chosen vibrant red fluid to document elapsed time, leading into a future of clarity in the form of a colorless liquid. The dynamism of the red detail stands out against a black background. What’s next? As always, momentum: life in motion, HYT’s elixir.
