A new extraordinary timepiece from the Swiss masters of the creative time-telling.
A titanium dial with black DLC coating is entirely perforated and 313 out of 937 of its holes are stuffed with golden pins, forming a three-dimensional image of a human skull. Its outline is marked by the see-through glass capillary tube, filled with transparent and colored liquids (blue or green, depending on the version), representing the time – the past and the future. Hour markers with full written numerals are engraved on the inner side of the domed sapphire crystal, with the exact center of each word facilitating on-the-dot timing accuracy. Black or white Super-LumiNova rail applied under the capillary. A pupil indicating the power reserve peers out from a disc sitting behind one eye socket. The other eye focuses on the passing of seconds with the moving words ‘Soon’ and ‘Now’.
This intriguing and captivating time telling of the HYT Soonow is a patented fluidic module consisting of two partially visible, multi-layer bellows. Transmission between manually wound movement and fluidic module is possible through conversion of rotation into linear movement using a cam-follower system. The power reserve of the movement is 65 hours.
The stainless steel case measuring 48.8 mm in diameter is fitted with grey or black rubber strap with titanium folding buckle with black DLC coating. The two HYT Soonow versions produced in 25 limited editions each.
