This is the new HYT H1 “Velvet Gun,” which comes in a titanium case with a new satin purple PVD treatment. It has the same dial layout and dimensions as the original H1 (48.8 mm by 17.9 mm). Same hand-wound 4Hz, 35-jewel movement with hand-chamfered bridges, Geneva stripes, rhodium treated bellows, and 65-hour power reserve. And it still features the signature retrograde fluid hours display; a minutes dial at 12 o’clock, a seconds disc between 9 and 10, and a power reserve indicator between 2 and 3.
In addition to the “Velvet Gun” purple-colored PVD titanium case — which has been brushed, shot-peened, and satin-finished — the minutes dial is now in a bright silver rhodium finish with a beautiful circular pattern.
The HYT H1 Velvet Gun comes with a black rubber/alligator strap with titanium velvet gun PVD pin buckle and is available in a limited edition of 50 pieces for 56,000 CHF. (Ref. 148-VG-10-GF-RA)
