HYT’s hefty and unusual Skull collection is slimming down and coming in more colours in 2018.
HYT uses both traditional mechanical watchmaking and modern hydro technology to display time. The brand claims that the complexity of its pieces boarders on nanotechnology.
Saying HYT is slimming down might give the wrong impression, the two new watches clock in at a hefty 48mm, bit that is considerably smaller than the previous 51mm models.
The case for the first version of the Skull is made from 5N pink gold. The hours are indicated on the outer bezel using the fluid technique the brand is known for.
The external dial boasts a grained effect thanks to its microblasted treatment. The strap is made from matte black alligator.
The second version of the Skull, made from pink gold also and black DLC titanium, features an external dial treated with an anthracite grey galvanised coating. The cognac-coloured patinated leather strap, with a rubber core, comes with a matching cuff.
Both pieces use the HYT calibre that uses black fluid pushed around a tube in the shape of the skull to display the time.
Each timepiece is limited to a production of 50.
