HYT - H0 Mati Day & Night

HYT H0 Mati Day & Night

Inspired of Greece, these two models invite to live fully the only moment that truly counts: now.

Time is a river. The H0 Mati Day and Night by HYT turns this elemental believe into poetry in motion. The Greek Eye, the Mati, displayed in the 9 o’clock seconds counter makes an entrance in the world of HYT. What best to connect Greek and Mediterranean tradition with a strong sense of protection against the evil eye triggered by jealousy, envy and excessive compliment?

Greece is in the center of this twin collection. “Mati day” captures the sunny summer days, the blue of the Aegean and Ionian seas, the silvery white of the Greek homes when the bells strike noon. When the sun sets, a new life begins, “Mati Night”, for those who breathe Greece at night.  The depth of a black dial mixed to the vivid blue fluid illustrate the balance between energy and mindset of the Islands at night. The Mati guards it all.

Whilst the two H0 watches are about making each moment of your Greek life meaningful, the sideview takes you to an even more profound journey. Where everything started. For Mati pays tribute to its Greek roots, the Clepsydra, one of the very firsts time-measurement device ever created, Greece had to be the central focus all along this journey.
The Clepsydra name, the “water-clock” finds its origin in ancient Greek, “Kleptein” to steal, “Hydor”  “water” .

Written on the side if the Mati collection through a new technology, a 2500 years old saying finds its place: “τὰ πάντα ῥεῖ καὶ οὐδὲν μένει” (ta panta rhei kai ouden menei).
Greek philosopher Heraclitus was spot-on when claiming that “Everything flows and nothing stays the same”. Each glance at the H0 Mati Day and Night confirms the central belief that context and content define time, just as the union of fluid technology and a mechanical caliber brings to life time’s passage. 

A patented fluidic module enables blue liquid to express the time that has flowed through the wearer’s recent past – and clear liquid to symbolize the waters that lie just ahead. This fascinating depiction of life’s flow is dramatized by the timepiece’s enigmatic silver or black case, dial and strap. The whole is a horological interpretation of a magical morning or midnight swim, firmly etched on the memory, defying dilution.
For HYT the H0 watches epitomize a proven will to recognize the purity of source, continually rejuvenating the brand’s essential and transparent focus on the fluidity of time. 

A drop-like sapphire glass dome magnifies this “theater” and makes the fluids visible from all angles. On the subtly curved dial, concave counters replicate the outward motion caused by descending droplets of water breaking surface tension. And true to the nocturnal inspirational spirit, Super-LumiNova® coating on the underside of the capillary glass tube that houses the liquid allows time to be read accurately at night.

H0 Mati Day

The H0 Mati Day’s stainless steel case, with brushed, micro-blasted and satin brushed finishes, has a diameter of 48.8 mm and height of 18.7 mm. It sits comfortably on the wrist as a bold symbol of buoyancy. A white rubber strap with a titanium folding buckle is a reliable anchor in any storm. Two multi-layer bellows, seen through the dial, reveal the micro-fluidic element orchestrating the accomplished behind-the-scenes performance of a mechanical movement with 65 hours of power reserve. The HYT H0 watches are a continuous, precious reminder to ride the tide of time.
