The H1 Ghost has been designed around a new black fluid produced in-house by Preciflex, HYT’s sister company which is responsible for developing fluids for HYT.
An opaque fluid does not emit or reflect any light. This means that come night, it is invisible. However, so that the H1 Ghost can be read in the dark, HYT developed a unique use of Super-LumiNova: the material illuminates the capillary from underneath along its entire translucent stretch, beyond the black fluid.
In concrete terms, this means that in the dark, the H1 Ghost does not only display the elapsed time, but also the remaining time up to 6 o'clock. When it reaches this precise moment, the fluid performs its retrograde movement.
These very dark, nocturnal tones highlight the white hour and minute indices and the white power reserve. Although in the minority, they are the most visible, dominating the black with their radiant white. The minute hand continues the fight: entirely black, it ends in a luminescent dot. And while the black fluid tirelessly pushes back its luminescent counterpart, only the light alone is capable of indicating the hour.
The H1 Ghost will only be released as a series of just 50 pieces.
