H1.0 x MR PORTER
Modern. Immaculate. Dynamic.
The H1.0 x MR PORTER limited edition is a celebration of seamless cooperation – between like-minded partners, and between mechanics and fluids. HYT has dedicated the design of this new member of its best-selling family to the values it shares with the ultimate online style destination for men.
Visually translating the dynamism of time’s constant motion, the H1.0 x MR PORTER is carefully curated and rich in detail. Mechanical energy constantly injects its power into the flow of the two fluids that trace time’s unstoppable passage. Mindful technicality is expressed by an intricate movement and ergonomic layering of the vital elements that make up this timepiece’s powerful whole. This is cooperation in a pure and dynamic form. A predominantly black and white color scheme hosts vibrant impulses from fiery red touches on the dial and side of the case. Super-LumiNova® ensures that time’s transience is present around the clock, a reality that mirrors HYT’s very core.
Style is unique to the individual it belongs to; how they spend their time is too. MR PORTER and HYT both actively nurture these sources of uniqueness. Selling the H1.0 x MR PORTER exclusively on this contemporary online platform for discerning shoppers empowers this process. Exposure of this dialogue-driven type confirms the HYT commitment to bringing exciting modern watch design out of the safe and on to the wrist. There it comes alive as an instrument of style and a reminder of the vital need to assign time content.
WHAT MAKES US FLOW
Once upon a time, philosophy set science in motion. It was 2012. The setting was a digital world, where time on demand had become the new, and precariously temporary, happy ending. Every single second of the day. But if time gains meaning through the content its owner gives it, why continually dispose of it in this way? That is the question HYT answers. This radical watch creator turned to advanced technology to measure what matters: time’s insuppressible flow. Overcoming the force of gravity, they set out to visualize the intrinsic motion of time using liquids. To trace the journey through past, present and future that makes up life itself. Their happy ending is a continual new beginning. HYT succeeded in enabling soon to become now, always.
Each HYT timepiece is a seamless, harmonious union of science, art and design, born of the brand’s unique philosophy on time. A patented, mechanically driven fluidic module is the source of this world of possibility. Colored and clear liquids trace the paths of elapsed and pending time. Their meeting point is the present, a constantly moving, beautifully suspended milestone. By showcasing time’s passage, every watch is an invitation to value what was, what is and what may be. Not for a second should we forget that, like a river, this vital flow can’t be stopped.
HYT tells time’s stories and these are always tales of the unexpected. Creative tension between craftsmanship and technology generates operational and esthetic energy. Radical transparency and three-dimensionality house miniscule detail. The bellows – with walls four times thinner than a human hair - act as time’s powerhouse. The serious business of time’s transience is given a playful wink and grin by a skull. Light acts as a key protagonist in a theatre of visual uniqueness… With HYT every day is flow time.
