HYT H1 Full Gold

The brand new H1 Full Gold, like the H2 Tradition, adds a classic touch to HYT’s hydro-mechanical timepiece collection. Crafted in Pink gold, the H1 Full Gold asserts its difference: the hour capillary has now been filled with a black fluid. This new colour is not simply a different hue of an existing version. It has been developed from scratch in partnership with Preciflex, the company responsible for all HYT fluid developments.
For the very first time at HYT, the capillary of the H1 Full Gold rests on a trough hollowed into the case and entirely coated in Super-LumiNova (SLN). Consequently, when the light level starts to drop, the SLN comes into its own, bathing the capillary in green light from behind.

As the black liquid does not allow this light to pass through, only the translucent part of the capillary not yet filled with black fluid will be illuminated. The hour is read by combining the time elapsed... and the remaining time. This is a first for HYT – and probably a first in watchmaking as a whole.
H1 Full Gold is available in limited edition of 50 pieces.
