H2 Aviator is the first HYT timepiece specially destined for aviation lovers which each step of its concept designed to satisfy aeronautical codes. The H2 Aviator is a true transformation of HYT’s iconic H2 launched in 2013, a piece easily distinguishable by its ‘V’ shaped positioned bellows.
The H2’s new aviation themed garb underlines the piece’s legibility, a defining element for all flight instruments. The path and the colour of the minute hand have been redrawn with its quarter hour indexes enlarged and in red. The central hand underwent the same treatment. Magnified and tipped by a red arrow, a first for HYT. The crown position indicator (H-N-R) located at 3pm is visible via a window that displays the selected function.
Like all fighter planes the cockpit is functional and extremely visible in this sleek casing. HYT gave priority to a case entirely coated in DLC including the hour indexes that are treated with grey anthracite Super-LumiNova. Consistent with aeronautical codes, the hour is read by a yellow liquid.
As with all technical pieces, the H2 has its share of innovations. One of HYT’s leitmotifs is to bring these innovations directly to the wearer: palpably, concretely and immediately. HYT’s latest innovation is a new strap covered in Kevlar (an aramid synthetic fibre with high tensile strength and temperate resistance, a fibre that can be used in extreme conditions such as clothing for racing car pilots, racing sails, and also in the aeronautical and aerospace industry).
The H2 Aviator’s case measures 48.8 millimetres. It is a limited edition of 40 pieces and is available from October 2015.
