The only way to capture the essence of the Skull is to look it straight in the eye. This is the first time that, when you look at the time, time stares right back. Because Skull’s eyes are alive. The right eye becomes gradually darker as the 65 hours of power reserve go by. The left eye conceals a continually rotating seconds dial. An ‘out of the box’ watch if ever there was one, Skull dispenses with minutes to fully focus on the liquid hours, the signature of an HYT watch.
The fluid travels along a glass capillary in the form of a skull, a significant technical challenge in itself. Also, the power had to be precisely calculated to push the liquid around the sharp angles while maintaining accurate timekeeping over 12 hours. The two vertical bellows are in constant motion as their imperceptible expansion and compression drives the liquid through the capillary, making the skull even more alive. 50-piece limited edition.
