Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - TIMEPIECES -

The H4 Neo is a time­piece equipped with a light source, un­der the dome at 6 o’clock; HYT has con­cealed two pur­ple LEDs. Once ac­ti­vated, they flood the en­tire dial with light. At night, the flu­o­res­cent coloured fluid and the trans­par­ent com­pos­ite dial loaded with flu­o­res­cent nano par­ti­cles are en­er­gized by this light source, be­com­ing supremely strik­ing. At the same time, the wash of light flows into every nook and cranny of the mech­a­nisms, lit­er­ally bring­ing this skele­ton ar­chi­tec­ture to life, and de­fy­ing the laws of watch mak­ing. No bat­tery, no elec­tron­ics are needed for this process, which is fully me­chan­i­cal. Three fac­tors made it so tricky to de­velop: the ex­treme minia­tur­iza­tion, the curved shape, and the fact that no de­vel­op­ment of this type had ever been achieved be­fore.
