HYT Hastroid Green Laser
For the launch of the new watchmaking craft, the Hastroid, HYT has developed special colour ranges with new shades, in particular an iconic green for the contemporary watchmaking brand.
Bold, bright, provocative, the Hastroid Green Laser is presented in a composite green casing, highlighting the green tone of the time graduations or the central minute hand. A powerful shade, that immediately evokes the colour of laser beams. Offering an attractive contrast effect, and allowing optimal readability, the fluid showing the retrograde indicator of the passage of hours is black. This fluid, in its extra-fine capillary, is the remarkable unique feature of the mecafluidic timepieces designed by HYT.
"We are engaged in a process of brilliant craftsmanship that flawlessly integrates fluidic technology and mechanical complexities", states Davide Cerrato, the new CEO and Creative Director of HYT.
Drawing its strength from the greatest traditions of watchmaking knowledge, the new HYT Hastroid Green Laser combines the ambitions of luxury watchmaking of tomorrow. An art as traditional as it is ground-breaking, from the earliest time, instruments for measuring time have been the product of human genius, supported by science and formal creativity and design. The fluidic time indicator is inspired by the clepsydra, a primitive type of clock from Ancient Egypt, whose innovative principle was to allow water to flow from one jar to another to measure the passage and "flow" of time.
HYT Hastroid: a new watch tailored for the future
A new iconic craft in the HYT fleet, the Hastroid has been conceived and designed to meet new expectations. It has a 48 mm diameter casing, with a total length of 58.3 mm and a 13.3 mm case thickness. It is shaped from the most modern or contemporary high-quality materials: titanium, titanium and carbon or an original composite and titanium alloy. Custom-made for new adventures, the multi-layer middle case presents subtle openwork, while the sandwiched construction method of the watch overall, waterproof up to 50 metres, with a central protective titanium case for movement, allows optimal handling of the missions assigned to this new spacecraft.
Like a flight deck, the watch is topped by domed sapphire crystal offering a largely unobstructed view of the overall dial. The centrepiece of the mecafluidic mechanism remains, of course, the fluidic system, with two central "bellow" reservoirs, whose design, unique to HYT creations, reinforces the character and feeling of power and the capillary surrounding the dial.
Retrograde hours and large minute hand
The coloured fluid it contains performs the function of indicating the retrograde hours. The components of the manual winding mechanical movement reveal themselves subtly through openwork workmanship at the back of the dial or plate. This calibre was designed by Eric Coudray, a well-known master in the field. Under the guidance of the Tec Group, and with the assistance of Paul Clementi, Prix Gaïa winner, the movement has developed a finer aesthetic and finish, with elegant satin finish or laser-treated or bead-blasted parts.
Detailed work went into improving the readability of the dial and thus it has a large central pointed hand for the immediate reading of the minutes, whereas the two subdials, arranged as instruments on a dashboard, provide essential additional information: on the one hand, a small second movement, and on the other, the power reserve. This same concern for clarity and readability led to special work on the luminescence to make the Hastroid bright even in the deepest darkest depths of outer space. Such technical elements simply reinforce the allure of this pioneering watch. Rare and original, only 27 copies of the new Hastroid Green Laser will be produced.
