HYT and H. Moser & Cie. are the two latest watch brands to join the select club of 28 manufacturers who assist the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) in its mission of spreading and promoting Haute Horlogerie across the world.
Innovative designs and bold reinventions of convention whilst maintaining quality has allowed H. Moser & Cie. and HYT to fall within the Foundation’s definition of Haute Horlogerie.
Fabienne Lupo, CEO of the foundation, said: “Through our members, the Foundation represents all aspects of Haute Horlogerie and the diversity of its players. For this reason, we are delighted to welcome H. Moser & Cie. and HYT to our Foundation.
“Their support is important to us. And for these two Maisons, this partnership is an endorsement of quality and a mark of recognition of their know-how and skills.”
Grégory Dourde, CEO of HYT said: “We are delighted that the FHH has chosen to recognise our innovative, non-conformist and creative nature, a creativity which is still expressed within the strict framework of Haute Horlogerie.”
Adding: “In theory, integrating fluid technology in a mechanical watch was akin to trying to unite two opposing worlds. However, we achieved it and today, HYT employs around 48 staff working on five permanent collections – about 400 pieces a year.”
Edouard Meylan, CEO of H. Moser & Cie. commented: “For a brand such as ours, which produces 1,200 watches per year, this partnership means that our work and creativity have been given their rightful recognition and that we are on the right track. It is something of a badge of honour.”
