In 2012, HYT has created a stir within the watchmaking community with its mechanical-fluidic hybrid technology that displays the time using fluids. After a brief hiatus in 2021, HYT was taken over by Kairos Technology Switzerland SA and nominated David Cerrato CEO
Davide, a veteran of the watch industry, has a proven track record having worked with brands such as Panerai, Tudor and Montblanc / Minerva. Now, in 2022 HYT returns with a totally new watch, thehastroid. This first watch in the HYT saga seeks to explore new dimensions and bring new customers into the brand.
THEHYT Hastroid it was designed and conceived to meet new expectations. Four new models will join this collection in a limited edition of 27 pieces each. The first model of the new HYT Hastroid is the Green Nebula. Featuring a 48mm case, its construction combines titanium and carbon. Water resistant to 50 meters, the watch is topped with a domed sapphire crystal that offers a largely unobstructed view of the dial. In the center of the dial, two central “bellows” tanks occupy the center of the scene with the capillary of fluid surrounding the dial. The colored fluid indicates the hours retrograde.
A detailed work has gone into improving the readability of the dial and therefore has a large pointed central hand for immediate minute reading, while the two counters, arranged like instruments on a dashboard, provide essential additional information including small seconds and a power reserve indicator.
To fuel the new Hastroid Green Nebula is the hand-wound caliber 501-CM with a power reserve of 72 hours. This caliber was designed by Eric Coudray with the assistance of the watchmaker Paul Clementy e Arnaud Faivre, at the head of the Tec Group.
THEHYT Hastroid Green Nebula it is fitted with a black rubber strap with green Alcantara insert with green contrast stitching.
“We are engaged in a brilliantly crafted process that seamlessly integrates fluidics technology and mechanical complexities. Meca-fluidic technology is a new term in science and research, harnessed for use in luxury watchmaking. We have the ability to highlight the symbiotic nature of these two technologies — mechanical and fluidic— " says David Cerrato, CEO and creative director of HYT.
