Below is a nice video walk-through (2 videos in total) of HYT’s fluid-time technology which, among other details, uses a liquid-filled capillary and bellows. I’ve also included some photos of HYT watches that I took at Baselworld 2013 earlier this year.
Bringing such unconventional timekeeping technology to market has not been easy for HYT but they have a solid product – functionally and aesthetically – that they continue to improve upon. Keep in mind that this is still a small-scale technology — HYT is shipping around 40 watches per month. As I see it, the opportunity is substantial if larger scale production (and lower price points — current models sell around $45,000 – $50,000) can be brought to bear on their fluid-timekeeping methods.
Super-cool watches, no doubt!
Behind the HYT’s unique technology (Video 1/2)
Here is a look at the glass capillary. As you can see in other photos it is filled with a colored — and a clear — liquid to indicate time!
