HYT H1 Quai Du Mont-Blanc

The H1 Quai du Mont-Blanc was created in 2014 as an homage to the brand’s partnership with Montres Prestige, HYT’s first ambassador of the brand in Switzerland, located on Quai du Mont-Blanc.
In this hydro mechanical art piece, HYT incorporates a new ‘red fluid’ challenge: the colour of passion, of Geneva and of Switzerland. The liquid adjustment was not as simple as one could think and took eighteen technical months to perfect. Its classical minutes dial preserves the heritage of the traditional haute horlogerie whilst seamlessly integrating the perfection of the high fluid technology. With its proprietary unique caliber, the H1 Quai du Mont-Blanc movement is further enhanced by the beautiful Côte-de-Genève finitions.
Produced in a limited edition of 22 pieces, a nod at Geneva, the 22nd Canton of the Swiss Confederation, each piece of H1 Quai du Mont-Blanc costs CHF 59'000.-.
