HYT has released the Skull 48.8 as the Swiss-based brand continues to expand its offering. Based on the original HYT H1 watch, HYT slimmed down the skull models for summer, taking them to 48mm from the usual 51mm. This distinctive timepiece continually reminds of the importance of seizing every second. Highlighting time’s passage, using what the watchmaker calls ‘liquid timekeeping’ technology, it focuses on the power of the present, the very elixir of life.


A patented fluidic module and exclusive mechanical caliber bring this to life. Colored liquid symbolizes reflection, while its transparent counterpart speculates reservedly on the future.

The new models feature a titanium hour bezel and are limited to 50 pieces per edition. The mechanical with manual winding exclusive caliber offers a 65-hour power reserve, and powers the HYT exclusive patented micro-fluidic module that displays the hours. The seconds indicator is situated in the left eye, the power reserve indicator in the right eye.
