The HYT H2 Tradition is the first HYT watch with such classical refinements as guilloché finishes, delicately lacquered dials, black Roman numerals for the hours, and blued Breguet-style hands, but it retains the now-familiar HYT hydro-mechanical aesthetic thanks to the capillary around the dial’s periphery, filled with blue fluid that moves forward with the passing of the hours. The liquid is driven by two bellows positioned on either side of the 6 o’clock marker, a system developed for the original H2 watch in 2013. With the fluid in the capillary displaying the hours, a white lacquered subdial at 12 o’clock with a blued, openworked hand indicates the minutes; a smaller blued hand on a smaller, intersecting subdial ticks away the seconds. The case, which measures a hefty 48.8 mm in diameter, is made of white gold and titanium; the titanium case middle is coated with a light anthracite grey PVD coating.
The HYT H2 Tradition (Ref. 248-TW-10-BF-AB) comes on a patent blue alligator strap with a deplyant buckle made of titanium. It is limited to 50 pieces worldwide and priced at $179,000 — via WatchTime
