HYT New H4 quartet
These new coloured timepieces embody the fascination of the brand with paradoxes.
HYT unveils four new H4 models shedding light on its intrinsic fascination with making the paradoxical meaningful. Loyal to the brand’s fil rouge, these colorful timepieces showcase the power of the past and future to assign the present context and content. These watches also add a new dimension to the combined energy of two potentially polemic opposites – light and liquid – with the smallest dynamo ever invented, patent pending. There’s an instant of tension when creativity succeeds in replacing an enigma with enlightenment. The new H4 watches were born of such a moment.

The H4 models have a 51 mm case in titanium with black DLC coating and feature a canvas of black and silver metal components. The first one is dressed in red, the second in blue, the third in green and the fourth in a mix of all these colours to which a yellow touch is added on the central minute hand. These colours are also to be found on the graduated bezel, on the dial indications and on the strap's top-stitching. The self-coloured versions are limited to 50 pieces, while the multicoloured is limited to 15 pieces.

These watches are powered by a manual-winding mechanical movement oscillating at a frequency of 28,800 vph and featuring a 65-hour power reserve. As the fluorescent nano-particles in the transparent composite dials catch the light, each of the surface’s tiny perforations transforms into a light source in itself. Developped in-house, a micro-generator sources light from two LEDs without any support from electronics or batteries.
Adding its signature to the paradoxical perfection of these timepieces is the seamless combination of an exclusive mechanical movement and patented fluidic module. Even the bi-material black strap in rubber and technical fabric shows that opposites attract, act and interact.
