Hydro-mechanical watchmaker HYT has released a teasing glimpse of its latest project, the HYT Skull.
More details on the watch are set to released around the luxury SIHH exhibition in Geneva later this month but early indications suggest the Swiss company has gone for form over function with its latest watch which does not indicate minutes.
The circular hydraulic tube that usually fills with coloured liquid to accurately indicate the passage of time has been reshaped to form the outline of a menacing skull on the dial.
The analogue nature of the fluid’s movement instead allows the watch to indicate the gradual transition of one hour to the next.
With rose gold skull and case element, red fluid and a red crystal caseback there is no mistaking the inspiration behind the watch, it would certainly suit Marvel’s Tony Stark aka superhero Iron Man.
The teaser video above also shows a version that looks to use titanium paired with a green fluid.
