The third watch to come from its part­ner­ship with the yacht racing team, the H1 Alinghi is the most tech­ni­cally ad­vanced and edgy of the tril­ogy and avail­able as a 20-piece lim­ited edi­tion. The H1 Alinghi is the epit­ome of un­der­state­ment; the aim is to fo­cus as much at­ten­tion on the tech­nol­ogy as on the aes­thet­ics. On the back, the struc­ture of the H1 Alinghi echoes the deck of a yacht. The grey sand­blasted fin­ish is the per­fect back­drop to show­case the piece in all its high-tech glory. The dial, just like an Alinghi cata­ma­ran in full flight, uses an ar­ray of tech­nolo­gies to en­able the time to be read via the liq­uid in the cap­il­lary, to cre­ate its sig­na­ture fluid time. To make it eas­ier to read in the dark, HYT has set it on a channel filled with Su­per-lu­mi­nova. At night, the translu­cent part of the cap­il­lary re­flects the light, en­abling the time dis­play, which re­mains opaque, to be read. The piece fea­tures off­set lugs and a crown guard made from folded and forged car­bon. These el­e­ments are de­signed and man­u­fac­tured out­side of the watch, then as­sem­bled onto its ti­ta­nium mid­dle.
