If life were merely a series of photo finishes, a stopwatch would suffice. But it isn’t. Life is a stream of individual experiences, each one heightened by the impact of what went before it and the potential of what’s to come. The latest H0 timepiece by HYT, presented at Watches & Wonders, is an invitation to reflect deeply on one’s own perception of time. It provides an enigmatic black canvas to visualise and honour the flow of existence.
The new member of the H0 family uses monochrome to present a distraction-free view of fluidic time. A focus on the hour of six o’clock encourages contemplation of alternative turning points in the day. HYT inspires the wearer to reflect on the importance he or she personally attributes to darkness and light. While mirroring the outline of the sun, orange Super-Luminova®, underneath the capillary, charts time’s flow.
Purity is the mantra of the all-black H0. This is further expressed by its domed, sapphire crystal, which instantly facilitates different perspectives on the passage of time. The watch’s mission is to attract rather than distract. Time is continually on the move. And this timepiece refuses to do anything that may stand in the way of this energising flow called life.
