After the "Green Nebula", HYT is presenting a new interpretation of its favourite colour: "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.
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.
