The independent Swiss brand HYT celebrates its 10th anniversary with a limited edition of the moon runner baptized White Neon. Retrograde hour, fluid pumps, annual calendar, 3D moon phase and extreme luminescence… Focus on this piece as crazy as it is exceptional!
A unique design by HYT
HYT is an independent Swiss brand created in 2012 which made a name for itself with its unique time display. In fact, this is achieved through a tube filled with black fluidthe level of which is actuated by push-ups located in the movement himself. Incredible technology and an innovative solution, which are the signature of HYT watches.
The Moon Runner White Neon obviously takes up this characteristic. The minute display is ensured by a chevron slider, which runs through the timer housed under the hour markers. In the center of the dial, we find, in order, the indications of the month, the date, and the moon phase. The latter takes place via a perfectly spherical moon. A 3D display truly spectacular, which determines the domed shape of the sapphire crystal, and therefore the surprising height of the watch : 21.8mm! And to top it off, HYT has added a healthy dose of Super-Lumi Nova last generation. The result is simply breathtaking. The HYT Moon Runner White Neon shines like a beacon in the night, and this exacerbated luminescence perfectly highlights the very particular configuration of the dial.
A movement designed by Eric Coudray
The HYT Moon Runner White Neon is powered by the caliber HYT 601-MO, a hand-wound mechanical movement. It oscillates at 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 72 hours. This one-of-a-kind movement was designed by the brilliant Eric Coudray, the man behind the Gyrotourbillon. It is made up of 516 pieces and features a sandblasted finish with a satin black coating.
A UFO in the night
There HYT Moon Runner White Neon is a real Clockwork UFO. All the ingredients are there to make one truly unique item : its dial, its technology, its dimensions, its movement… but also its rarity (10 examples in the world) and its price (€133,600 excluding VAT).
