The HYT (Hydro Mechanical Horologists) watch company was founded in 2012 by Lucien Vouillamoz and Vincent Perriard. The company is known for its unique timepieces that use fluid technology to display the time, rather than traditional hands or digital displays. In 2014, HYT released its first watch, the HYT H1, which used a capillary filled with a fluid to show the passage of time. Since then, the company has released several other models using the same technology, as well as traditional mechanical movements. In addition to its innovative time displays, HYT has also gained a reputation for its high-end materials and craftsmanship, often using luxury materials like gold, diamonds, and titanium in its watch designs.
