HYT Watches has just unveiled its latest timepiece it has been developing for over three years. The updated H5 collection was developed with master watchmaker Eric Coudray, and once again uses HYT’s patented micro-fluidic module to tell time, but on a whole new level. Taking the visual narrative of time — always moving forward like water — to its next steps is the Neoralite hour ring with 9c Super-LumiNova. This three-dimensional sapphire crystal allows for time to be read in multiple positions and was inspired by fluidic erosion; think of smooth pebbles on the shore, or cliff walls that have been washed away after centuries of crashing waves.
The sizeable watch sits at 48.8mm with a 20.08mm case width to house the new 501 caliber movement, fluid bellows and 3D hour flange. The watch beats at 28,800 Vph with a 65-hour power reserve, and surprisingly is good up to 50 meters in water. Limited to 25 pieces, each HYT H5 watch is priced at $55,000 USD. Fans of independent watchmaking can head over to HYT’s website for more information.
