HYT was already bubbling under the surface in 2002. A nonconformist thriving on challenge, Lucien Vouillamoz dreamed of transforming utopia into reality by reinventing the clepsydra in a perfectly watertight wristwatch.
Since 2012, HYT has measured time in a most unconventional way by introducing fluid technology into a mechanical wristwatch that is made to the highest standards of haute horology.
The brand, which is based in Neuchâtel, has succeeded in bringing together two worlds, which on the surface could not be further apart, and combined them in a contemporary, out-of-the-box design.
After the Ancient Egyptian clepsydra, who would have imagined it would be possible to display the time mechanically using fluids? The founders of HYT not only believed it could be done; they did it. They are the Hydro Mechanical Horologists.
