HYT H2 Full Gun & Full Bronze

With unusual leather straps, unique colours and the ever-interesting liquid movement, HYT presents two new limtied edition variants of the H2

Geneva-based HYT add two new limited edition versions to their top-of-the-line HYT H2 collection of watches. Despite the newly released H3 collection timepiece, the H2 remains their avant garde flagship model, as well as their most exclusive offering. 

 

For those unfamiliar with HYT's watches and party-piece, the H2 combines a mechanical watch movement with HYT’s signature 'complication' – the indication of time via colourful liquid in a tube, something HYT’s CEO Vincent Perriard is endlessly fascinated with and features in all current HYT models. 

 

For the H2 collection of watches HYT has partnered with the esteemed movement designer and producer APRP (Audemars Piguet Renaud & Papi) to produce the visually enthralling manually-wound movement that takes prominence visually on the dial.

 

The circumference of the dial has a capillary tube filled with a highly visible blue or green liquid (depending on the variant)to indicate the hours, plus a traditional minutes hand in the centre of the dial.

 

A function indicator hand communicates the crown’s current setting, and further distinction in a useful temperature gauge to determine and ensure the movement is at an 'optimal operating temperature'. This latter complication is exceedingly rare on timepieces. Further appeal lies in the long 192 hours of power reserve, and the exposed balance wheel on the dial. 

 

All of this is contained in a large 48.8mm wide case, here in titanium for these two limited edition HYT H2 models.

 

The H2 Full Bronze model’s case is PVD-coated with a bronze tone, green liquid and a brown Madras goat leather strap, while the H2 Full Gun features a PVD-coated case with a gun metal tone, blue liquid and a plum-colour alligator strap.

These two new H2 models are limited to just 15 pieces each.
