WatchTime New York 2023 is only a few short days away, with the incredible collectors’ event to once again take place at iconic Gotham Hall in the heart of Manhattan from October 20th to 22nd. Among the over thirty-five leading watchmakers joining the event this year is avant-garde watchmaker HYT, who this year will be returning to highlight one of their latest novelties in the new Conical Tourbillon Titanium Blue. Representing a fusion of scientific prowess and artistic mastery, the new timepiece encapsulates a decade of revolutionary watchmaking by the brand, with it sure to be a captivating attraction this coming weekend.

The Conical Tourbillon Titanium Blue boasts a meticulously crafted carbon and black DLC titanium case, showcasing its aesthetics at the forefront of modern design. The interaction between the materials creates a harmonious balance, while the crown made from titanium with a DLC core adds a touch of luxury. The domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and titanium side grilles with a black background provide both durability and aesthetics. On the wrist, it measures 48.00mm x 52.30mm x 25.15mm, occupying space with an artistic project yet guaranteed by a sporty feel via the black rubber strap.

The dial decoration is black-coated brass, a canvas on which opens a three-dimensional spectacle. The decorations are coated in black and illuminated with white luminescent numbers via Lumicast material creating stunning visual contrast. Against this backdrop, a mesmerizing dance of blue liquid takes place inside the borosilicate capillary, with its movement serving as both the HYT’s signature and hour indicator. The blue minute hands, enhanced by a white SLN, add a sense of order to the animation, while three fluid-filled rotating spheres work around the central 30-second tourbillon that together maintain the chaos by design.

The foundation for HYT’s horological magic is the 701-TC. Operating at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour (3 Hz) and decorated with 61 precious stones, this movement is a testament to HYT’s mastery of watchmaking expertise, with a combination of Mechanical and fluid components perfectly combine form and function. A 40-hour power reserve supports the watch’s functionality, while the sophisticated satin and sandblasted finishes—combined with black coating—speak to the brand’s fine finishing.

The HYT Conical Tourbillon Titanium Blue is limited to a total of eight versions, with a price of CHF 335,000 (excluding taxes), or approximately USD 373,000 at the time of writing.
