HYT presents the new H2

HYTH2a

The HYT team have announced the new H2, a further development of last year’s H1 using the same basic concepts and technology, this time created in collaboration with Renaud & Papi. You can read more about the H1 at the H1 link.

The H2 is to be in a limited edition of 50 pieces. The case is 48.8mm (17.9mm thick) and made of black DLC titanium. There is a retrograde fluid for the hours, a jumping minute hand (which jumps to avoid the bellows), a power reserve indicator and a new temperature indicator for the fluid, whose err ‘fluidity’ is affected by temperature changes, thus affecting accuracy. This is something that I have heard was raised as an issue by some H1 owners, so this is perhaps a tacit acknoweldgement that there are optimal temperatures for this type of technology. The ‘H, N, R’ on the dial at three o’clock is the crown function indicator; ‘R’ is for winding, ‘H’ is for the time setting mode, and ‘N’ is the neutral position.

The double barrel, visible through the back of the watch, has an 8-day power reserve.

The H2 comes on a rubberised anthracite alligator strap and the price is, I believe, going to be around 90,000 CHF. It will be formally launched at Baselworld 2013. Watch HYT’s teaser video above for a more extensive glimpse of another ‘talking point’ piece from HYT.

  2. I was at the HYT authorised dealer here in Sweden yesterday and took a look at the HYT H1, and I must say that I’m impressed with this new brand.
