HYT H4 Neo Limited Edition

HYT’s new Hydro-mechanical wristwatch, the H4 Neo model, is equipped with a light source. Under the dome at 6 o’clock, HYT has concealed two purple LEDs. Once activated, they flood the entire dial with light. At night, the fluorescent colored fluid and the transparent composite dial loaded with fluorescent nano particles are energized by this light source, becoming supremely striking. At the same time, the wash of light flows into every nook and cranny of the mechanisms, literally bringing this skeleton architecture to life, and defying the laws of watchmaking. No battery, no electronics are needed for this process, which is fully mechanical.
Produced in a limited edition of 15 pieces the H4 Neo houses HYT’s proprietary skeleton mechanical hand-wound movement equipped with an exclusive patented micro-fluidic module and a purple light mechanical module. The massive 51mm diameter case is crafted with charcoal grey titanium and titanium DLC with micro-blasted finishes.
