HYT modifies its Skull Watch design with the newly-introduced SOONOW wristwatch. Differing from its predecessor, this watch features a borosilicate skull-shaped glass capillary that houses the inverted green liquid to tell the hours, while each “eye” possess its own function; a pupil acts as the power reserve indicator while the words “SOON” and “NOW” complete a full rotation every 60 seconds on the opposite eye.
Standing at 48.8mm in case size, the large titanium dial features 937 perforations with 313 18k-gold pins that fill the skull’s outline. Powering the watch is HYT’s exclusive manual-wind movement that boasts 65-hours of power reserve, 35 jewels, and beats at 28,800 VPH — all coupled with the patented micro-fluidic module that moves the liquid in the capillary via a thermal compensator and dedicated bellows.
Using a skull motif and a visual representation of time, the HYT H0 SOONOW (Soon/Now) reminds us that time is fleeting, and to use our time wisely. The watch is available in either green or blue liquid displays, and both colors are limited to 25 pieces each. Those interested can contact HYT for availability, and can be expected to pay approximately $77,000 USD for retail.
