HYT SKULL POCKET

HYT Pocket Skull Watch from HYT Watches Switzerland

In a world of beautiful limited edition luxury watch design creations with myriad dial and case shape layouts, where watches have become just as much art as haute horlogerie, and the range of offerings from brands such as Richard Mille Watches, Patek Philippe and its complicated timepieces, Audemars Piguet, Jaquet Droz, Vacheron Constantin and Bell & Ross and others is simply stunning, the will of HYT Watches of Neuchatel Switzerland to produce a watch, or timepiece, that is genuinely different and innovative has to be admired. The latest expression of that will, that desire, on the part of HYT Watches is to be found in the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch, initially available only from Laurent Piciotto at Chronopassion. Indeed, in many ways the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch is the antithesis of the much of the haute horlogerie and tourbillion bejeweled watch output of Richard Mille, Patek Philippe and its complicated timepieces, Audemars Piguet, Jaquet Droz, Vacheron Constantin, Ulysse Nardin and its Marine Collection and even the military-diver instrument inspired Bell & Ross, primarily because the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch is not, as the name implies, a wristwatch at all, but a pocket watch. That’s right, a pocket watch, or “poche” as some might say, but not just a pocket watch. Firstly, this is a pocket watch from HYT Watches Switzerland, the remarkable Swiss brand that has stunned Europe and beyond, not least with its HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Collection of luxury, limited edition, art inspired skull design wristwatches complete with totally unique calibre movement, with a complex fluid mechanism including a bellows and capillary system to power its time display. With the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Collection of limited edition watches, and models such as the HYT Skull Axl Rose, the HYT Skull Bad Boy, the HYT Skull Red Eye and HYT Skull Maori to name just a few, HYT have combined that exceptionally innovative calibre movement with high art, placing its skull design center stage on the watch dial, indicating time by the movement of (red, black, blue and even green) fluid around the outline of the skull, in one stroke consigning Richard Mille Watches, Patek Philippe and its complicated timepieces, Audemars Piguet, Jaquet Droz, Vacheron Constantin, Ulysse Nardin and its Marine Collection and Bell & Ross and others seemingly to another, simply different field of watchmaking. The HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch takes this to another level completely, and for this HYT Watches Switzerland will undoubtedly receive the plaudits it deserves.

The HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch is then, a massively contemporary pocket watch. It features none of the none of the complications you will find in the offerings of its wristwatch rivals, the Patek Philippe complicated watch delights of the tourbillon, multiple time zone, and moonphase, or the stunning beauty of the Grand Complication watch and its minute repeater, chronograph and perpetual calendars complications created by Pierre de Roche. What the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch does instead is to subvert all that traditional watch complication and haute horlogerie excellence by turning it on its head, producing not just a limited edition luxury wristwatch with traditional case and dial shape priced in CHF, but winds the clock back further on the one hand, by reintroducing to the world of cool the concept of pocket watches, while at the same time, on the other, not least by the clever integration of contemporary high art, by producing a watch that is for now, but full of the future of Swiss watch design. Once again, the will and desire of HYT Watches Switzerland and its associates to achieve this should not be underestimated. The HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch is an addition to the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Collection of limited edition luxury Swiss watches that will simply blow the minds of watch connoisseurs everywhere, both in Europe and more importantly, beyond.

Like the other models in the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Collection of limited edition luxury Swiss watches, HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch using liquid to tell the time. Foregoing the black, blue and red liquid of some other models, often used as a contrast to a rose gold case, the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch offers a combination of green and colorless liquid pumped around the outline of its high art inspired central black DLC titanium skull, housed within an exceptionally well executed Titanium and DLC 59mm case, covered by not only a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, but also, because the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch is, after all, a pocket watch, a further titanium dome cover with its own integrated release system, and then a further customizable leather embossed cover. While the mechanical, manual winding exclusive HYT calibre movement does in fact feature Cotes de Geneve finishing, the pocket watch design is such that the eye is always drawn to the watch dial side, as a high art installation that will never fail to impress, relegating other watches of more limited appeal to secondary importance.

The many contemporary wearers of the men’s waistcoat will no doubt welcome, as will of course many others, the arrival of the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch from HYT Watches Switzerland. This is retrofuturism at its best, whether the watched is priced in CHF or some form of interstellar currency. In one swoop, HYT Watches Switzerland have taken contemporary limited edition luxury Swiss Watch design and taken it to a level that will truly delight. For the watch buying public in Europe and beyond, whether paying in CHF or any currency, Richard Mille, Patek Philippe and its complicated timepieces, Audemars Piguet, Jaquet Droz, Vacheron Constantin, Ulysse Nardin and Bell & Ross have some serious competition with the release of the HYT Watches Switzerland HYT Skull Pocket Watch from HYT Watches Switzerland. One glance at the Pocket Watch, especially after dark, will be enough to convince anyone of this.
