HYT Launches The Limited Edition H5 Model

Luxury watchmaker brand HYT just announced the launch of a new, limited-edition model, the H5, equipped with HYT’s new propriety caliber 501.

HYT’s 501 caliber is three years in the making by the brand’s dedicated team based out of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. With the H5, HYT brings the past into the present and towards the future.

A hand-winding mechanism sets a consistent pace and releases precisely the right amount of energy for two contrasting immiscible liquids to flow inside the capillary tube to represent the recent past and the near future. Visible through the sapphire case back, an intricately shaped cam offers thirteen different possibilities to adjust and index the hour and minute indications, ensuring they operate as one. An over-sized, curved lever connects the movement’s collaborating elements. This orchestrates a complex chain reaction, whereby the caliber pushes against a regulating bellow with walls four times thinner than a human hair to launch time’s next twelve-hour journey.

The HYT H5’s three-dimensionality and transparency allow viewing from any and all angles. A domed sapphire glass is ingeniously curved around a bold stainless steel case to simultaneously present and protect. Stratified metal components, stepping and sinuous lines support the design’s strong storyline. The innovative neoralite external flange, with its cut-out numerals further enhance the H5’s fascination with perspective. The striking vertical digits appear to float around the watch during the day and start to glow as darkness falls. Created from one single piece of luminescent, Super-LumiNova®-filled, translucent material, this component’s complex production process involves 3D printing, molding, injection and subtle grinding. Like natural erosion, personal evolution continues around the clock, time after time.


The H5 by HYT comes in two limited editions, each of 25 pieces. They both have green on the color palette and opt for either black or grey to make their individual statements.
