The brand new Hyt skull lamp, another luxury watch brand from Switzerland, is eye-catching timepiece.
Neuchâtel’s Swiss watch brand HYT has been busy innovating yet another amazing timepiece. The HYT skull lamp combines three ingenious ideas of the brand, including the smooth expression of hours, vivid skulls and mechanical light sources.
At first glance, Skull Light looks similar to its older sibling, Skull Green Eye, but it is quite different from the new Shopping replica watch.
Between each hour mark are various parts of Clou de Paris, giving the dial’s foreground a wonderful three-dimensional appearance. The hour markers and bezel are highlighted in 5N gold, in sharp contrast with the adjacent black surface.
The shell of the skull lamp is made of black DLC titanium with the aforementioned golden highlights. Black DLC titanium has a stealth effect and reduces weight. Around the skull is a hand-beveled edge of 5N gold.
The core of Skull Light is the same movement as the first HYT model Calibre 101. This movement is completely developed in-house and uses the typical movement finishing in traditional watchmaking techniques.
Looking at the skull’s eyes, as the energy in the spring barrel is gradually consumed, the right eye socket becomes darker and darker. At the same time, the left eye socket has a second hand indicator to show the wearer that the watch has started working.
Similar to HYT H4 Alinghi, Skull Light is equipped with a mechanism that captures the energy generated from winding the crown at 04:30 and converts it into electrical energy. Press the button at the end of the crown, and the two LEDs at the bottom of the dial will light up the skull lamp, “to bathe the watch for 15 seconds with a soft blue glow”. There is no battery to generate power, the micro generator is completely powered by a mechanical device similar to a generator.
HYT once again explores the limits of creativity and dazzling with its amazing creativity.
