Replica HYT Conical Tourbillon
HYT Hastroid Cosmic Hunter combines cutting-edge technology with ancient materials
The HYT brand is undergoing an encouraging renaissance. With the help of Kairos Technology and Davide Cerrato at the helm, it was a huge success. For reference, Davide is the man who launched the original Tudor Black Bay in 2012 and oversaw Montblanc's acquisition of Minerva. Such a great resume. Two pieces HYT is hoping to make a comeback are the Moon Runner, which features a moon phase feature, and the Hastroid, which pays homage to six of HYT's past models. It was this model that became the basis of today's novelty - the HYT Hastroid Cosmic Hunter. Its bronze and black color scheme evokes the watchmaking vibe of yesteryear, using exclusive modern materials to create an equally contemporary design.best replica watch site
How do you see the timing of this thing? Let's talk about the bronze and black elephants in the room. If you are not familiar with HYT and its time display, let me give you a quick overview. The brand is known for using colored liquids suspended in borosilicate capillaries, pressurized by two bellows reservoirs located either side of 6 o'clock. This fluid corresponds to the outermost set of cantilevered Arabic numerals, indicating the hours by matching the level of the fluid to the nearest numeral. In the image above, the black and yellow liquid barrier can be seen at 2 o'clock. At the top of the fifth hour, the liquid jumps back in a retrograde fashion, indicating 7 o'clock. The hour numerals are also plated with Lumicast, a three-dimensional application of SuperLuminova that has excellent depth and glows like a torch.
The task of indicating the minutes is left to a more traditional central hand, in this case skeletonized and with a white tip, extending to the inner minute track marked with white Arabic. The rest of the dial is skeletonised, with transparent discs indicating the running seconds and power reserve. The branding is stamped on top of the box-shaped domed sapphire crystal, giving the watch a unique look that almost reminds me of an astronaut's helmet.replica watches review
Space Age Bronze
As you might expect, the Hastroid Cosmic Hunter is a chunky boi, measuring 48mm wide and 52.30mm lug-to-lug, while measuring 17.2mm thick. Having said that, this is one of the rare watches that justifies this size. It's in the same space as something like MB&F - it's huge, but you wouldn't want it any other way.
The construction of the case itself is a complex one. Sixty-four different components combine to form its imposing figure, with skeletonized lugs, scalloped sides and angular sections. The bronze colored parts are actually PVD coated titanium treated with a surface stabilizer to ensure no patina or discoloration. The rest of the case is either black-coated titanium or carbon fiber for a fairly lightweight experience on the wrist, and I was surprised when I had the chance to try the watch's green nebula colorway.replica watches for sale
unlike any other
The hand-wound caliber 501 CM, originally developed for the H5, was conceived with the help of PURTEC and two talented watchmakers. Paul Clémenti (L'Epée, Parmigiani Fleurier, Bovet) and Eric Coudray, father of JLC Gyrotourbillon, MB&F Thunderdome and Louis Moinet Ultravox. As you'd expect from such an avant-garde movement, the decor is also remarkably contemporary, with black sandblasted bridges dominating the uneven landscape of a skeletonized movement, with mirror-polished screw heads and fluid drive elements highlighted. In terms of specifications, the movement offers a three-day power reserve and beats at 4 Hz.
