HYT H1 ICEBERG The replica swiss watches brand has replaced its signature green liquid with a striking blue liquid, creating a limited edition timepiece with attractive white and gray dial details to tell the time.
One theory is that we romantically gravitate towards those we perceive as having a similar degree of beauty. In our heads, we determine our place in the pecking order. While some souls are egotistical and some have low self-esteem, it is surprising how often individuals are a good match for their mates in a biological sense.
When we walk down the sidewalk and spot someone who is deeply beautiful, they easily stand out and our heads turn. Also, those who are charismatic tend to know about it.HYT H1 Diamond dome chrysobery
A alpha male might notice a beautiful female but feel discouraged from expressing admiration when confronted with a cold, standoffish character. The prospect of possible rejection will impede progress, especially when a tall lady is perceived as "icy cold."
So when I admired the stunningly beautiful HYT H1 Iceberg, I noticed its icy hue and wondered if it was worth interacting with this watch and wearing it on my arm.
An intimate evaluation period ensues
Founded in 2012, HYT is relatively young in the world of haute horlogerie. From the beginning, the watches made by this avant-garde company were expensive due to their incredible complications.
Personally, I find HYT's timepieces fascinating. When I saw the H1 Titanium in 2012, my horological hunger for the company's replica mens watch was first ignited. Afterwards, when I saw the H1 Blue Alumen, I was equally impressed.
HYT recently granted me provisional permission to wear the H1 Iceberg, another striking horological beauty, hence the full evaluation.
Early examples of the H1 featured a bright green liquid surrounding the dial. This liquid exists in narrow capillaries and at first glance appears to be the only inhabitant of the glass tube. However, this is not the case, the capillary contains two liquids, one colored and one colorless. One liquid is water-based, the other oil-based, and when the two liquids meet, the meniscus tells the time.
It took 18 months of research and development to replace the aforementioned green liquid with the blue liquid of this HYT H1 Iceberg. It might seem like a long shot considering the agility with which a five-year-old can mix paint, but there are many factors to consider. First, the two liquids must remain homogeneous at all times. In addition, liquids are not affected by UV light or temperature.replica watches for sale
The main colors of the dial are white and silver gray, presenting an original appearance, reminiscent of freshly fallen snowflakes. The shiny silver tone of the two bellows pumps above 6 o'clock accentuates those dial details rendered in vivid blue.
Power reserve indicator between 2 and 3 o'clock. When fully wound, the HYT H1 Iceberg has a power reserve of 65 hours.
The small seconds is displayed at 10 o'clock with a blue and black pinwheel-shaped wheel.
As with other H1 models, the minutes are shown on a regulator-type display below noon.
Although the HYT H1 Iceberg shares the same dial design as its siblings, in my opinion the blue liquid provides the greatest clarity thanks to its striking contrast with the other dial elements.
Some observers might find the color scheme a bit feminine, especially the white rubber strap. However, being a hot-blooded alpha male, I wouldn't shy away from wearing this variant of the H1. In fact, this is my favorite variant so far.luxury replica watches
The mechanism at play dictates that the case of the HYT H1 Iceberg is quite large. With a diameter of 48.8mm and a height of 17.9mm, it feels very comfortable on the wrist.
Despite its behemoth proportions, the watch doesn't feel overly heavy. This may be partly why HYT decided to make the case of the HYT H1 Iceberg out of titanium. The finish is slightly softer due to the "shot peened and satin finish".
The blue rubber crown adds a splash of color to the case, which has a more restrained aesthetic than the dial.
While HYT is a young company, and the H1 is unabashedly modern, the Swiss watch brand hasn't turned its back on the craftsmanship synonymous with watchmakers. On the contrary, HYT cooperates very closely with high-end haute horlogerie practitioners.
While this movement may not have a tourbillon, its complexity is palpable. In addition, use a magnifying glass to appreciate the movement up close, and through the exhibition case back, the perfect decoration of the "exclusive HYT movement" can be seen at a glance.replica Jacob & Co. Watches
I've discussed at length how the movement works with the bellows pump to propel liquid around the dial when I've looked at other H1 models before, and read my review of the H1 Blue Alumen for more explanation of the movement. There is no doubt that HYT has created a technical masterpiece with its unusual way of telling time.
Inevitably, my management of the HYT H1 Iceberg came to an unfortunate end. However, I love every element of its delicate torso and alluring look. The seductive blue hue of the liquid enveloping the dial always turns my head and makes my heart beat faster.
Sadly, part of me knows that our union is unlikely to be completed anytime soon, given its asking price of CHF 56,000. Also, by the time I was able to raise the necessary funds to realize the acquisition, the 50-piece limited series had undoubtedly been sold in its entirety.
In summary, is the HYT H1 Iceberg "frosty"? On the one hand, it's a thing of beauty that many people can't afford, so it's a bit inaccessible. On the other hand, however, despite the token cool tone of the dial, it warms my stomach thanks to its innovative design and unparalleled craftsmanship.replica Richard Mille RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal
