The new HYT H1 from HYT Watches, the hydraulic mechanical watchmaker, is the first watch with mechanical and fluid dynamic time indication.
The watch uses two liquids to indicate the time. The second liquid is transparent and the second is green. They flow through the tube along the outer hour scale.
The idea that led to H1 is simple, it consists of two flexible reservoirs fixed at six o’clock on both ends of the capillary. When the first one compresses, the second one expands, and vice versa, causing the liquid to move in the capillary.
The repulsive force of the molecules in each liquid keeps them separate and has a meniscus to mark the boundary between the two.
As time goes by, the fluorescent liquid continues to develop. The half-moon-shaped half-moon-shaped elbow marks the breaking point along with the other fluids in the pipe and indicates the time. At 18:00, the fluorescent liquid returns to its original position and moves backward.
The secret to make the reservoir work? The two bellows are made of high-strength, flexible electroplated alloy, and each bellows is driven by a piston. This is where the watchmaking industry starts to activate the system.
HYT H1 is equipped with an exclusive self-made manual winding mechanical movement, operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
The center of the dial is equipped with a minute adjuster, overlapping with a spectacular small seconds display, reminiscent of a water wheel. On 02.30, a 65-hour power reserve pointer indicated the remaining available energy on three arcs of an arc. time2umall.com
