There’s something reminiscent of some fantastic mad science about luxury HYT, and if anything, it’s an image, if anything, that the company is actively playing around with, and that fits their occult magic brand as well. Charismatic CEO Vincent Perriard actively exudes a Boffin-like image of a scientist, while the creation of watchmakers Bruno Moutarlier and Jean-François Mojon Wonderful timepieces are a combination of futuristic concepts and science fiction-esque designs.
Since breaking cover for the first time in 2012 — and brand new territory — with their award-winning H1, we’ve had plenty of time to get acquainted with its seemingly otherworldly workings, yet every time we see it, Our ingrained notions of timepieces are challenged, with an array of unusual components that expand our imaginations as we wrestle with the alien technology before us.
tip of the iceberg!
Just announced a new HYT H1 Iceberg limited to 50 pieces, featuring a 48.8mm titanium case with a finely brushed, sandblasted and satin finish, a curved sapphire crystal and a transparent display case back.
It’s worth noting, however, that, unlike the fluorescent green of previous H1 models, the new H1 Iceberg features a crystal clear sky-blue liquid that coarsens in its clear glass veins and circulates around the edges of the dial to mark when it’s on the hour markers. Passing above, forced backwards at 17.59.59 by an invisible viscous fluid, in a classic retrograde fashion, retreats to its “zero” point, hidden beneath a titanium tab at 6 o’clock.
With such nuanced attention and dedication to perfection, even the aqua blue liquid here has been crafted for nearly two years to precisely outline this particular shade, inspired by the colors of the clear blue sky and sea.

Elsewhere, the dial is much lighter in colour than we’ve seen before thanks to the icy shot-peened finish, which is clearly accentuated by the fluid blue and under the small seconds wheel at 9 and the power reserve scale near 2. detail. The palladium grey regulator dial hovers mainly on the upper hemisphere, below the bellows, slowly ‘breathing out’ over 60 minutes and rapidly ‘breathing in’ during the hourly retrograde phase, rhodium-plated illuminated.
Viewed from the back, each surface is meticulously finished by hand using a variety of time-consuming techniques, appealing to technophobes almost as much as it does head-on. The dual personality of the movement is reflected in classic horological features such as the perfect chamfering and Côtes de Genève decoration of the upper mechanical part, as well as the sharper, almost industrial effect of the hydraulic propulsion elements that give the fluid downstairs.
The HYT H1 Iceberg is available on a white rubber or blue sticky alligator strap with a titanium buckle. discounts replica watches
