The H2 is HYT’s leap into combining their novel fluid mechanics technology with the elements of haute horlogerie. This intense hybrid was formed as a result of a partnership between HYT and APRP (Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi).
The Iceberg White Gold is a timepiece of imagination that challenges the notions of what science and luxury aesthetics can become when limits are pushed and theories collide.
A 48.8mm diameter brushed titanium case with contrasting high polished halo of 18K white gold as the bezel. Sitting 17.9mm tall, this beast grips comfortably around the wrist with a black rubber gummy alligator strap.
The in-house invention that keeps the time on H2 is manual wind movement beating in at 21,600 bph. At full power reserve, the mechanism will run for up to 8 days. HYT’s signature “Fluidic Hours” are presented in blue to coordinate with the blued hands, blue markers and matching stitching in the strap.
The fluid is retrograde, as has come to be expected with HYT timepieces (learn more on how the fluid system works here). You will also find a minutes indicator with a jumping hand at 30 minutes. A crown position indicator is at 3:00, as well as a thermal indicator at 9:00.
The H2 Iceberg is limited edition. There are only 20 available on the planet.
