A few months ago, we mentioned HYT's new direction under new management (and a new sporty model called the Hastroid Green Nebula).
Now, as a follow-up to this new Hastroid line, yes, green again, they've introduced the new Hsastroid Green Laser, which offers even more colors of the same name, in the form of a composite green case with an almost "grain" state" look. Like the Green Neubla, its central minute hand has green in it. Unlike it, the liquid in the capillary is black when retrograde.
In terms of size, the case is 48mm, the length is 58.3mm, the thickness is 13.3mm, and the waterproof depth is 50m. It is a green composite and DLC-coated titanium with a black titanium screw-down crown and a skeletonized middle layer.
The new Hastroid Green Laser is powered by a hand-wound Calibre 501 CM designed by Eric Coudray. It beats at 28,800 VPH and has a 72-hour power reserve. It combines satin finish, sandblasting and laser treatment.
Everything about HYT and the new Hastroid comeback
HYT Watch Comeback, New CEO and New Hastroid Fully Explained
HYT Watches is a unique brand in the independent watch world. Introduced in 2012, HYT made a splash with its unique meca-fluidic technology, which uses fluids to tell the time. Amid the 2020 pandemic, the brand announced it was going out of business...just a few months later, however, HYT is back with new CEO and creative director Davide Cerrato at the helm. A veteran of the watch industry, Cerrato rose to prominence with brands such as Panerai, Tudor or Montblanc. The launch of the first creation, Hastroid, was the perfect opportunity to meet him. In the in-depth video at the top of this article, we talk to Davide Cerrato about the brand's relaunch and the all-new HYT Hastroid watch.
Behind HYT is a concept, a vision to show time in an unprecedented and decidedly unnatural way. Created in 2012, HYT Watches did not use the traditional hands that revolved around the dial, but a new fluid-based display... yes, indeed, it is one of the greatest enemies of mechanical watches used to tell the time. Here, the display relies on an additional module consisting of bellows and capillaries in which two immiscible fluids flow retrograde to indicate the passage of time, and the point where the two fluids meet represents the current time. However, the brand had to face issues and go out of business for a while before appointing a new CEO and industry veteran, our old friend Davide Cerrato - often regarded as one of the most creative minds in the industry .
Following the launch of the new collection of watches HYT Hastroid Green Nebula and Hastroid Green Laser, we thought this was the perfect time to meet Davide and ask him important questions about HYT, its vision, the future and the future. A watch we can expect. What makes HYT different? What does Cerrato want to inject into the brand? What is the new Hastroid? What will happen in the near future? We cover it all in the video at the top of this article.
