A new model from the liquid indication experts.
As always with HYT, the three-dimensional transparent structure of H5 invites you to examine it from all angles. A domed sapphire crystal is curved around a massive stainless-steel case measuring 48.8 mm in diameter. Besides the green or black fluidic hours, the indication includes the off-centered minutes and seconds, as well as a power reserve counting 65 hours. Multi-layer metal bellows are clearly visible at the bottom part of the dial. The cut-out luminescent digits on the external flange start to glow as darkness falls.
The brand new 501 manually-wound movement releases precisely the right amount of energy for two contrasting immiscible liquids to flow inside the capillary tube. Visible through the sapphire case back, an intricately shaped cam offers thirteen different possibilities to adjust and index the hour and minute indications, ensuring they operate as one. An oversized, curved lever connects the movement’s collaborating elements. This orchestrates a complex chain reaction, whereby the caliber pushes against a regulating bellow to launch time’s next twelve-hour journey.
The H5 by HYT comes in black or green limited editions, each of 25 pieces: on either black or grey rubber strap with titanium folding buckle.
